Parental feedback and input into our academies continue to be of great importance to the Harmony Trust. We believe that parents can help us shape our strategies, address challenges, and share successes.
Alongside our parent forums, we are looking for parents to help our research team evaluate the impact of Trust-wide projects on them and their children. To ensure we can monitor changes over time, ideally we would like the same parents to respond each time. If possible, we are asking that parents to sign up to answer these surveys 3 to 4 times per year.
Our first project is to look at the impact of the 1-2-1 devices (iPads for all KS2 children) on children and their families through our Harnessing Technology Maximising Learning (HTML) strategy.
The surveys will take around 10/15 minutes to fill in. They will help us identify any changes we need to make and identify successes that we can share across our academies.
Your data will be held securely and will be anonymous, although we will ask for the school and year group your child is in on each survey.

Everyone at Hackwood Academy is delighted that all our children have now got access to Sumdog. It is an exciting and innovative piece of maths software that adapts itself to the child’s answers, increasing challenge when they are ready.
Your child has received their login from their class teacher and can access Sumdog immediately.
Did you know, that just 30 minutes each week increases your child’s maths fluency (being able to recall maths facts without thinking)? The questions all take the form of games and the children have loved earning coins and playing the games in their introduction to Sumdog.
You can read more about the benefits of Sumdog https://www.sumdog.com/en/parents/ or better still, ask your child to show you how it works.
