Back to Your Say PageRobinwood Questionnaire Summary Autumn 2014

Notes:

The % results have been rounded to the nearest whole number. Therefore totals may not always add up to exactly 100.

The results of this questionnaire and all other “Your Say” exercises are published on the school website.

Thank you to the 35 Y4 pupils that completed and returned the questionnaires.

We were pleased to note very high satisfaction levels in response to the questions asked and that there were no “inadequate” judgements. We observed pupils develop emotionally, socially and physically whilst at Robinwood. We also think the pupils had a wonderful time and the questionnaires and positive comments seem to confirm this view. Thanks go to Mr. Harrison for organising the trip and to the Marine Park and Robinwood staff for the very high standard of care and instruction provided.

Specifically in response to the suggestions:

· We do hold one evening meeting when we launch the trip but offer an additional, final, brief meeting prior to the end of the school day the week before we depart to offer reassurances and opportunities for questions. We do send out a letter the same day with all information for parents that do not or cannot attend.

· The suggestion about the pictures and diary are interesting though this would provide less time for pupils to complete the full range of activities and less time for adults to support pupils. We do produce a photo slideshow which we upload to our gallery website on our return which provides a good account of the trip.

· There are items at the shop which do cost more than £3 (such as T-shirts and cups) but we feel that £3 is enough.

· We resolved the comment about being picked on and not supported directly with the parent of the child.
