One of the best ways to find out about a school is to ask the parents and, of course, the children. So we thought we would share with you some of the comments last year’ s Year 6s made in their confidential exit questionnaire .
“School helped me to feel good about myself.“ ” School helped me to learn and to be good in maths and literacy” “School pushed us to the best of our abilities.” ” School has given me confidence.” ” This school is great, the best!”
The Year 6s also had some advice for the little ones starting in Reception, ” Ask if you are nervous. there is nothing to worry about; it is a small school with plenty of people around to help you.You can ask anyone.”
Here are some of the parents’ comments from this years Parent and Carers’ Survey.
“The teachers and other parents are so welcoming and friendly I feel part of a wonderful school community.My children love coming to school every day and that’s very important to me.”
Our daughter has “ truly blossomed, gaining in confidence and skills through the excellent range of activities and opportunities she has undertaken in the past two years”
“We have seen our son’s confidence growing week on week …he picks up his books now and wants to read on his own”
Every individual child really is important to us; we them want to achieve the best they can but be happy and confident in their learning.
We have 204 pupils aged between 4 and 11. There are seven classes, one for each year group. We have super grounds with many trees, grassy areas and a full sized, all weather games area. The children’s learning is really enhanced by the fun and challenges they have outside and inside through our topic based curriculum.
We are a Church of England school and our Christian values are very important to us but we also value and respect other beliefs and traditions.
