Dear parents

Thank you once again for taking part in this year’s Langar School Parent Questionnaire.

We are delighted that your responses reflect our successes and achievements over the last year!

Please find attached the summary of the 2013 results. It shows what parents say Langar School is doing well, and gives an indication of areas where we should focus our attention in the future.

The key findings this year are:

  • Overall, parents say they are (to a very high percentage) happy with Langar School
  • Improvement has again been made on already good results
  • Perceptions of progress, and communication of progress, has become more consistent between key stages
  • Perceptions of support given to children with additional learning needs, has remained stable. Parent’s understanding could improve further; they have a varying level of experience of this area depending on their own children’s needs.
  • Overall awareness of school Governors and SENCO has decreased significantly. Again, parents who have not accessed additional support for their child will be unaware of the SENCO’s role (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator)
  • Use of the school web site has decreased. A new, more interactive school website is now in the planning stage.

orchestra-day-1Ashley and Sarah Parnell, who provide school’s music tuition service, invited us to join Robert Miles Junior, Carnarvon and Flintham schools for a week of celebrating the arts.

Developing the theme of “Water”, pupils from the four schools came together to participate in a variety of creative activities.
The orchestra day culminated in a concert in St Mary’s Church, Bingham, where our young musicians gave a very polished performance.

As well as groups of children from the four schools joining together, individual schools offered art and drumming activities for all.

The Parnells are in school at 3.40pm, on Tuesday, 18th June, for parents whose children wish to try out a musical instrument.
