How could our school be made even better?

Younger children mentioned more toys and outdoor play. All age groups mentioned more PE and outdoor activities, and more clubs. Lots of children wrote, "Our school could not be any better!" which is a nice thing to hear!


Please write down any ways that school has recently made things better for you.

Lots of children wrote about the marking and feedback symbols, learning points and houses, new targets and specific teachers. Some children wrote about ways we have improved the buildings and school grounds, e.g. the canopy which will shortly be built in lower school, the trim trail, and the new hut. One child wrote, "They gave me hope in my tests."


Is there anything else you would like to tell us about Codnor Primary School?

We only had positive comments here - thank you for that. Some children wrote, "Best school ever!"




Things which we would like to improve, now we know what you think.

  • We would like to improve the number of children who think their ideas are respected when they are working in groups.
  • Although children say that we deal with any bullying properly, we don't want ANY bullying at our school. Please talk to a member of staff if you think you're being bullied or if you're unhappy with anything. You can also help other children by telling us if you're worried that someone else is having a problem.
  • We would like even more children to have ways of helping themselves in their learning before asking a teacher.
  • We are going to improve the pond and garden area so that you can use it when you want a quiet breaktime.
  • We are going to try to have even more sport, and chances to work outdoors.
  • We are going to buy more play equipment for outdoors.


Things which sound great, but we cannot do!

  • Swimming pool
  • Zip wire
  • Indoor football pitch
