At Windmill we welcome families to be involved with school life as much as possible.
Parents, carers and families are by far the most important influences in a child's life. Their support can play a vital role at all stages of education.
Parents who take on a supportive role in their children's learning make a difference in improving achievement and behaviour.
Macmillan Coffee Morning, September 2017
We wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for attending our coffee morning. As always, it was a well attended event and the pupils all really enjoyed taking part too.
It was useful to read your feedback on the day - our Collective Worship Council did a super job coming and chatting to you all to find out what you thought. What was really effective was that we were able to address some of your comments there and then - some of you asked for forks for cakes and they were swiftly provided! Words used by you to describe the day were:
We do listen to you and take your ideas into account, so whilst most of you thought the morning was perfect just the way it was, for next year we will be taking on board the suggestions to:
Start our coffee morning a little earlier (at 8.30am) so we can include more of our working families
Have our visitors pay an entrance fee/make a donation so they can come straight in and sit down at a table which will have drinks and cakes available for them to access straight away, to avoid queuing
Ensure we label cakes as vegetarian, dairy/gluten free etc
It was also suggested that the children may like to run their own fundraiser. Look out for Children In Need on Friday 17th November where our pupils will be selling their own baking to raise money
