Parent Comments:

  • I’m pleased with the progress made by our child and the overall support and effort provided by the staff.
  • Keep up the good work
  • I am looking forward to hearing at parents evening.
  • No concerns myself and both my children attended this school. Its a lovely school and the teachers are a credit.
  • Need regular parents meetings about the child development
  • Need regular parents meeting regarding the children
  • Regular parents meeting about child development
  • Could not answer all questions as not had experience
  • I am a new parent to the school and so far so good. Am happy with my daughter’s progress so far. For some statements I didn’t rate them as I had no experience.
  • Is it possible to install a microphone in the assembly hall? As it is difficult to hear.
  • I would like to be kept more informed of progress or lack of it. i.e. if my child continues to make progress at this rate he/she will get to this point. However with hard work and focus he or she could get to this point.
  • I think the school is good but concerned by the different amounts of teachers my child has had in the last 2 years. I hope this doesn’t progress further. (Reason for strongly disagree to statement three)
  • My daughter is showing good progress this year and hope the school keeps pushing her forward.
