Remote Education Survey
In January 2021, we surveyed our parents to ask them their opinion on the fantastic provision of remote education at our school. Overwhelmingly, parents were supportive and very happy with the outstanding provision for their children being taught remotely at home. Attached below are the results of the survey and parents comments praising the provision in place at Hucknall National C of E Primary School.
Individual comments from parents:
"I think the support in relation to remote learning is very good. As a parent working from home it helps that there is a teaching structure in place. This ensures I can also focus on my work better."
"The school is doing and outstanding job during these difficult times and both my children and myself thank them for the hard work and dedication that shows."
"Really appreciate all the work that Miss Rouault and the other Y1 staff have put into making sure our children are supported and can access as much of their normal curriculum as possible during this very strange time! Miss R goes above and beyond for the children, often putting on lots of extra fun tasks which my child LOVES and so do I. I feel really well equipped to help her with her home learning, even though I'm still working full time at home. I really don't think there's anything else she could be doing, I'm still trying to work out at what point she actually sleeps! Thank you to everyone involved."
"Provisions put in place for remote learning is excellent. Zoom is fantastic and enables the children to feel part of the class."
"The year 1 team have been absolutely fantastic. They provide daily zoom lessons for phonics and maths (without which I would find teaching the maths really difficult.) they provide learning according to ability. They have also been fantastic at engaging with the year group, providing fun activities and challenges and are always so creative. My daughter enjoys zooming in and being able to see her classmates and teachers. Thank you for the massive effort that you all always put in!"
"I would like to thank all the teachers for the work they are doing and the support we receive my day is structured thanks to them. It creates a home filled with learning but structured learning so I am extremely grateful to you all. THANKYOU 😍"
"All the teachers are doing a fantastic job both remotely and in person during the national lockdown. My children continue to remain happy with all work provided."
"I think the teachers are coping very well with the curriculum. And this gives the children confidence ... Well done Hucknall National Primary."
"I think the school are doing the best they can .There is extra support given for when pupils are struggling such as extra maths lessons which is invaluable as a parent. The work set out is very clear and now that the school are offering school packs to pick up on fridays that really does help as finding and printing off work was really time consuming. Thank you National doing a great job!"
"All staff have been amazing!! Always on handed if needed, well done National."

The teachers have done amaxing job getting to grips with new technologies and new ways of delivering lessons. Yr 6....AMAZING!!! Yr3...improves week on week and staff are brilliant at adding encouraging feedback when marking and returning the work. A huge thank you and well done to everyone at National, its a team effort and you have risen to the challenge brilliantly. Other schools should look at you as a model of how remote learning can be effectively delivered."

Good quality english zoom lessons provided for year 2 and story time in the afternoon works well our daughter feels still part of the class and enjoys seeing the other children and engages well.

"You are all doing amazing, and i can not thank you enough!"
"During this difficult time, I feel I have been really supported, phone calls to check we are doing ok plus excellent learning from teachers, I would really love a few more zooms for year 5 English and maths but I know it must be difficult to fit things in around being in the classsroom too, Mr Dutton has been very encouraging and supportive when marking work and year 1 I have to say are fabulous, lots of learning and activities and the zooms are fantastic, and I have to give miss Rouault a special mention, she goes above and beyond in everything she does. We look forward to her zooms and messages, she makes us smile. Thankyou Hucknall National."

"I think the provision has been excellent, especially now my son takes part in a zoom call every morning. It puts him (and me) in the right frame of mind for home learning."
"Hucknall National Primary School have absolutely gone above & beyond to help the children both educationally and emotionally during this pandemic. After Lockdown 3 was announced on the first evening of the Spring Term, pupils were offered learning from home the very next day and were invited to register their attendance on day 3 of that term (6.1.21). Teachers are teaching live lessons and both year-group teachers (from my experience, year 3 & year 6) are working as a team, one from the class in school with key-worker children and one online during live-lessons, and providing individual feedback on work handed-in electronically. I am very impressed and thankful for all Hucknall National primary school are doing for the children."
"Picking up the packs on a Friday has really helped and saved us on time and money so thank you for that. My daughter is being looked after by her grandparents as that’s our childcare bubble as I’m still working. When I go to pick her up she likes to show me all of her work. Yesterday she went through everything and I was shocked how much work she’s done there were loads. She’s proudly put it all in a folder. Mr Dutton has been fantastic and is always providing feed back with help, support or just acknowledging her work when it’s been complete and sent in."
"The school is doing a fantastic job in the current situation. The teachers are working hard and always on hand to help and are quick to respond to any queries. I think the work sent is sufficient and spot on for D's age group and more than enough for him to cope with. Huge thanks to Miss Roualt who always makes lessons fun and does a great job keeping the children engaged."
"The work that has been sent out has been excellent and is easy to follow for parents to give support. Having a remote lesson a day has been really nice and G has really enjoyed the story time at the end of the day. Feedback is usually given promptly and G loves hearing what her teacher has to say. If I have needed to contact the teacher for any reason I have always had a quick response on dojo. Thank you for doing such an amazing job and for all the support you have been giving us."
