WHAT DO WE DO WITH THE RESPONSES?
At Thomasson we pride ourselves in working in partnership with our parents and carers. Once a year we ask parents and carers to complete a questionnaire about how their child is getting on at school. The vast majority of responses from our parents are extremely positive. We do however, appreciate open and honest responses and ensure any problems, issues or negative comments and feedback is addressed, so that the way we run our school and our work with parents improves further.

These are some of the comments about the strengths of Thomasson from Parents/Carer:
These are areas for improvements parents have raised:
We have contacted the music service for a list of lessons they provide and the costings. We will get the information out to you as soon as we have it.
We have different clubs going on throughout the year, currently running at lunch time: art club, choir and magazine club. Due the vast majority of children going home in taxis’ it is not viable to offer after school clubs.
The catering of school dinners is provided by Bolton Council through Devonshire Road Primary. Twice yearly the dinner menu is changed and the new menus are provided to families. A copy can also be accessed on the website.
All trips and special events notices are sent home primarily in a letter and then weekly reminders are put in ‘Amazing News’ weekly.
Please note that any comments or suggestions you make are taken seriously and acted upon. Thank you so much for taking the time to complete the questionnaire.
