Compliments From the General Public and Parents

  • Compliments

    We often find that when our children are on school trips, visits, on public transport, or just out and about; the general public will often comment on how well the children have behaved. Sometimes we get great feedback from parents too. Below are some compliments the school has received in email or by phonecall or by letter.
  • Thank you so much for our invitations to your Christmas lunch and Carol Concert. It was a real treat. Everything about it was stunning and we can’t imagine how much hard work you all put into it. The children were wonderful and a credit to the school. Thank you for organising it. Please say a big thank you to all the adults involved especially the ‘chef’ who provided a lunch better than some restaurants.

  • Dear Mrs Ainsley, I wanted to write formally to say thank you for helping me to arrange the session yesterday and also how impressed I was with the children who participated in my workshop. Please could you pass on my sincere thanks to Fraya, Harvey, Julia, Maclaren, Harry and Aia for all the work they did, and for being so kind to say that it hadn’t felt like work. They gave me so much useful information and really impressed me. I would also like them all to know that they are exactly the sort of young people I would like to have in my class at University. They answered questions but also asked them, they listened and respected one another and made sure everyone could contribute and they were also fun and interesting! If they ever want to come for a guided tour of Sheffield Hallam University I would be delighted to show them around. I will write up the report from the workshop and hope to have it with you early in the new year. Many thanks again

  • Good Afternoon, I have just had the privilege of meeting some of your students from Year 2 and your teachers and helpers. The children were impeccably behaved and had good manners, followed instructions and listened well. They also kept noise to a minimum. I have twin babies and the children were great at keeping a distance, not touching. I spoke with a little girl called ‘Summer’. If she is a reflection of the students of your school you should be very, very proud. I just wanted to say compared with another school I had the unfortunate pleasure of meeting on the way to Meadowhall: your children were amazing. My little girl attends Sacred Heart Catholic School and I’d like to think they behave like your children. With kindest Regards, Mrs Laura Holmes

  • I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed the morning. Your children were delightful: everything I could have wished for. They were extremely friendly and polite and in addition they were excited, enquiring and enthusiastic about everything I showed them, handing the artefacts with great care and sensitivity.

  • Your children were so polite and respectful on the tram. You wouldn’t even think there was a group of children on the tram! You must be doing something right. Tram Conductor

  • I can honestly recommend this school to all my friends and family. I am so happy with my daughter’s progress that she has made in her Reception class at your school. The teachers are all welcoming and friendly and it genuinely feels like a family. My daughter does all her homework: fabulous! Not only that, she is reading so well. I get all information on how she gets on with peers and concentrates which was a real insight. I am very happy with all my children’s progress. The school is very supportive with any of my concerns. Thank you to all staff. Regards, Razmee

  • I am really happy with all the staff at the school. I would really recommend this school and Nursery – they are brilliant. I am so pleased with how my son has progressed. And also the teachers are really helpful. My son has learnt a lot of things. As a parent I have enjoyed coming in to school to workshops. Any concerns I have all teachers are approachable and are able to help. Brilliant, first class teachers. Azaan’s mum
