Notes:

The % results have been rounded to the nearest whole number.

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

Thank you to the 28 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.

Suggestions for improvement whilst we are away:

None x3

Nothing x2

None– very well organised. My son thought the whole experience was fantastic– he didn’t like the beds.

More texts if possible– maybe 1 each morning and 1 each night.

Play more games in the canoe area.

My child didn’t enjoy the stream walk as “freezing”

Choice over the number of showers– preference would have been one shower each evening, or least offered the option.

Response: The showers are timetabled around the activities. Children were given time for a shower after cold, wet, muddy activities.

Bedrooms were very untidy, toilet was not flushing and bedroom floor was scruffy with mud, dust and sweet wrappers everywhere.

Fix creaky beds.

Our dormitory for 10 people was too small because all the bunk beds were crammed in so people were hitting their heads on other bunkbeds.

Response: We will feedback the comments about the accommodation/rooms to Robinwood.

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. If there are any additional comments or suggestions, please use this box.

I had an amazing time; I will never forget it.

Text messages help keep mind at ease. Thank you.

Thank you. **** had a wonderful time.

***** had a wonderful time when she was away.

**** had an amazing time and couldn't stop talking about it. Thank you so much for providing the opportunity.

An excellent experience. Very well organised and run. Thank you.

Really good, fun, nice instructors. Liked the relationship between the instructors and children– that it was fun. Thanks for the experience.

It was a brilliant experience and just the right amount of time because if it was a full week people would probably start feeling homesick and get really tired.

My child’s group were a bit devastated because they had to do piranha pool first and stream walk last.

If a pupil in the class can’t afford the trip but would want to go, is there some way of helping e.g. PTA money.

Response: The school uses pupil premium fuding to heavily subsidise the trip for pupils eligible for free school meals. If parents enquire we can provide more details and discuss the payment timetable.
