Policies

At Milton of Leys Primary, we genuinely try to involve pupils, parents and staff in helping to ‘shape’ our new school. In this section, we will share any new policies, either in draft or full form, for comments from any member of the MOL Community. Only with your feedback can we truly make the school an excellent place to learn.

    The only comment I might make about the After School Procedures is in relation to bikes / scooters. It is often the case that children have taken their bikes etc to school that morning but when after school activities close, they are unable to retrieve their bikes etc from the secured playground. This can often be over a weekend. Whilst bikes are secure in the playground (ie not at risk of theft at all), and there is the alternative to lock bikes up at the front entrance during the day – is there any possibilities for moving bikes etc prior to after school activies?

    Again, only one small comment re the Homework policy. It’s not clear from this, or from speaking to Callum, if spelling tests take place in class, after learning their words for the week. I know Jenny does and we see this coming home so it’s helpful to see improvements / problem areas and words we need to keep on the whiteboard to work on further.

    My only comment on the homework policy is the time frame of usually giving homework out on a Friday for it to be returned on a Wednesday is great. This way gives parents the option, if they want to, to complete some homework over the weekend freeing up evenings for other activities/clubs after school throughout weekdays. I have heard comments that why should homework be done over a weekend but this way the choice is with the parent.

    With regards the homework I have two children in P5 but in different classes. I find the amount each has differs quite considerably some weeks. I know the classes are different but would expect consistency over a year group. Otherwise find the layout of sheets easy to follow and in general have no complaints.

    Re Homework Policy – I notice that it is broken up into the classes as opposed to the year groups. I would have hoped that although your child is in the composite class with younger children that the curriculum covered and their work would relate to their year group and hence homework would cover and support all areas as listed for the straight class.

    It would also be good to reinforce that all classes’/groups’ Homework are available on the blog weekly, together with any supporting pages. This would also provide confidence to the parents that children in composite classes are getting the same curriculum opportunites as their peers in the straight classes.
