A number of children also added the following to the foot of their questionnaire:

  • I love this place and don’t want to leave.
  • I love this place and I never, ever want to leave

Twenty five Y6 pupils completed the questionnaire during July 2017 and we thank them for the positive feedback we have received.  From their responses it is clear that they have enjoyed their time at Beaufort Primary School.

Areas of strengths arising from the questionnaire:

  • I have made good progress because I have had good teachers and teaching assistants to support me. 
  • We are incredibly pleased that 100% of the pupils believe they have made good progress because they have had good teachers and teaching assistants to support them (80% strongly agreeing with this statement). It is fantastic that the pupils have been able to reflect on their time at Beaufort and recognize that that their achievements in SATs are a culmination of their own hard work and the efforts of the staff by whom they have been taught. We aim to continue, and even improve, this next year.
  • I feel safe at school.
  • It is encouraging to note that 100% of the pupils feel safe at school (again, with 80% strongly agreeing with this statement). Pupil safety is paramount and all staff do their utmost to ensure pupils are safe. This is an area that we aim to ensure is maintained.
  • I have had a good range of opportunities (e.g. sports, music, visits etc.) 
  • Beaufort Primary School prides itself on the extensive range of wider opportunities it provides to all its pupils and we are extremely pleased that area achieved 100% (with 72% strongly agreeing). The following are some of the activities we have offered pupils the opportunity to experience and learn: brass instrument tuition (including completing music exams); djembe and samba drumming, ukulele tuition; archery; gymnastics coaching (including completing gymnastics exams) and music technology.

Although most areas detailed within the questionnaire have proved positive, we are not a school known to rest on our laurels and we acknowledge, from the questionnaire findings, that there are a number of things we could improve.

Areas for development arising from the questionnaire:

  • The school has asked for and listened to my views on school issues.
  • Although only 4% disagreed with this statement, Beaufort Primary do not want any pupils to feel that their views are not asked for and listened to. This is an area we will focus on next year.
  • To make Beaufort an even better place for future pupils, what further improvements would you suggest?
  • Many pupils suggested that they would have liked a wide range of things to play with at break-times and lunch times. This is therefore an area that School Leaders need to consider and will be discussed with the School Council.
