National Thank A Teacher Day - May 2020

Mrs Champion and Mrs Pearce and Miss Wilson are all kind, caring, reassuring and calm. They work with my son and I know he can be a hand full with out 30 other children. They all reassure mummy that he’s doing ok and are patient with him and his temper. I’m very grateful for his teachers not just in class but through out the school. Miss Elford, Mrs Bruce, Mrs Boothroyd are some others that work so hard to ensure it’s a happy calm environment for him. Thank you

Drop in sessions for parents (April 2018)

Starting in the summer term, Mrs Meehan, our Parent School Liaison Officer will be running a series of Wednesday morning drop in sessions where a wide range of school issues can be discussed. You may wish to pop along to these to find out more or to bring ideas, suggestions or questions to share. During some sessions other members of the school team will be present to ask for views on new development areas and initiatives. We hope to see you at one of these sessions soon. More information regarding these will be sent out soon.

June 2017 - A thank you email about our Year 2 teacher, Miss Barnaby.

I’m sending this email as I wanted to provide some positive feedback on Miss Barnaby and also my experience of your school and your great team!

My son joined the school in September 2016. Miss Barnaby was really welcoming to him; helped him to settle in and make friends in the class. She really got to know him well (his strengths and his challenges!) within a short space of time and overall, he settled in really well in his first term.

Miss Barnaby was really helpful. She listened, empathised and talked to me about options that might help him. She made a point of letting me know her door is always open and she genuinely makes you feel that is the case. One evening during the week of SATS, I emailed her to let her know how anxious my son had become about something, just to make sure she was aware for the following day. I had not expected an immediate reply, but I got one with some helpful context and it enabled me to talk him through his concerns and reassure him. As a result he went into school the next day in a really positive frame of mind. I can’t tell you how helpful that was! Miss Barnaby has been really proactive in supporting me.

There is no doubt in my mind that his progress (and more importantly, sense of happiness at school) this year has been due to her great support. Overall I’ve found all my interactions with the staff at school demonstrate how caring and nurturing the environment is, so I just wanted to say thank you! As a parent, it means the world!

I’m quite sad that he’s leaving this year, but my daughter is joining you in September so I’m excited to see how she gets on. She’s already really excited after a positive first visit last week!

Happy for you to share this with Miss Barnaby and anyone else in the team.
