PARENT SURVEY - a message from Brian Swan (Chair of Governors)
Thank you so much to all those parents who responded to the Parent Survey, which was sent out by the Governors earlier this term; we received a record 277 responses altogether providing us with some valuable feedback and a useful insight into your views of the school.

The detailed comments provided by some of you as part of your response also paint a very positive picture and we would like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who took the time to write some very supportive words. These have been shared with the staff.
Any comments which included further suggestions for improvement will now be discussed with the Governors and the Senior Leadership Team.
There were, of course, other comments pertaining to individual concerns, which really need to be discussed personally with the Headteacher. Please could we offer an invitation to any of you who feel you would like to discuss anything further to contact Mrs Robinson directly through the school office. The school really does have an open door policy and Mrs Robinson would genuinely be very happy to listen to any concerns or further suggestions for improvement and to talk through possible solutions with parents. It is only by working together that we can ensure your children make the most of their time at Bosmere.
Finally, thank you for your ongoing support in making Bosmere the wonderful school it is.
