Parent Feedback

Thanks to everyone who completed our 2019-20 annual questionnaire, the results of which you can see below.






















There were many different comments about what parents like most about the school. Many pointed to the small size and community feel; also the care and attentiveness of staff. The following are just a few of the positive comments made:

  •  ‘The school makes great effort & goes to great lengths for support'
  • ‘St Ann's is being well managed. Keep up the good work.'
  • 'Friendly community.'
  • 'The atmosphere and friendliness of the staff. They care. My daughter is having a lovely time.'
  • 'I like that the school has helped my daughter progress intellectually and physically.'
  • 'Environment. Activities including Steel Pans. Lovely community, caring staff and Shakespeare drama and swimming.'
  • 'Hardworking teachers.'
  • 'Feels like family.'


Nine comments were made in the section, ‘something you would change about the school’. Below are some representative examples with a brief explanation of how we aim to address the issues raised. We continue to encourage parents to speak to class teachers or school leaders about their concerns, so that we can resolve any issues as quickly as possible.




‘Better communication about events.'


We acknowledge that sometimes short notice is given for events & meetings; and how frustrating this can be. Often this is out of our control - due to late notice from outside agencies or providers. However, we will strive to ensure we always give maximum notice.

The calendar on the school website is regularly updated and contains many dates for the school year. The newsletter includes dates for the current term.

Each Monday a diary of the week is sent by email

Please ensure we have up to date email addresses and mobile numbers to receive our texts & emails

‘More funded after school clubs like multi-sports.’

The school office do their best to source providers of quality, at a reasonable price. Some clubs are more expensive due to the cost of materials & resources the children use - not just the leaders fee. Others we are able to fund through grants (e.g. sports). We will continue to seek the best quality & most cost effective provision - if you have any suggestions please let us know - and to identify grants that may be used to subsidise costs for parents.

 'More time to eat lunch.'


Children should have sufficient time to consume their lunch; the last group to come in tends to be around 12:50, giving them 25 minutes until the end of lunch (at 1:15pm). If there are any issues please speak to Mr Taylor or Mr Lancaster, who are in the hall each day.

'A contact number for after school club. Website updated with information on new time of Breakfast Club.'

After School Club is Option 3 when you call the school number (020 8800 2781). We have now updated the information pertaining to Breakfast Club.
