Parent/Carer Survey Results 2019

Riverwalk would like to thank all the parents and carers (44% return rate) for taking part in this survey.  This is a massive increase on the 2016 parent/carer survey which had a return rate of 31.7%.

From the survey parents / carers feel their children like coming to school; they feel their children are safe and treated with respect. Teaching is good and there is effective communication between class teachers and parents.  Parents / carers are clear that they see Riverwalk as a school that is approachable and willing to listen to their concerns.

The full results and quotes from parents and carers can be found here.

Rebound Therapy

Skydive

Great fun was had on Tuesday 13th November when pupils tried out Rebound Therapy for the first time.  Rebound Therapy is used to facilitate movement, promote balance, promote an increase or decrease in muscle tone, promote relaxation, promote sensory integration, improve fitness and exercise tolerance, and to improve communication skills.
James Brooke started the fundraising drive for Rebound this time last year and, after he sadly died in May, a determined group of staff and parents continued with his mission.  Four staff have now undertaken Rebound Therapy training and we are hoping to train more as soon as possible.  If there are any parents who could volunteer to be ‘spotters’ either in school time or for a possible after-school club on Tuesdays, please contact school.
Next on the wish list is an outdoor sunken trampoline.  Look out for future fundraising events or contact school with any ideas of your own.
