Ofsted Parent View

A Thank You from New Parents


Mrs Massey and her Team,


It has been almost a year now since Emily 6.1 and Ellie 4.1 joined Howe Dell School and I would like to thank Mrs Massey and her team for welcoming and transforming the children into confident and articulate girls. I was so worried that changing schools would have a negative impact on their learning, however, since joining Howe Dell Emily and Ellie have shown a significant improvement in their school work and self confidence. I appreciate the efforts by the whole team in caring about my children’s education and ensuring they receive the support they need. The girls are happy and look forward to attending school every day -  they respect their teachers and the teachers respect them. 


Many thanks 

Lucy & Marcus

We are due an Ofsted inspection and parents/carers will be invited to give their views about the school to inspectors using the ParentView online facility as this has replaced Ofsted’s paper questionnaire. Please make sure we have your most up-to-date contact details to alert you that an inspection is taking place.  However, it is recommended that you access ParentView at any time to complete the questionnaire, you don’t have to wait for an inspection call.


Please register with an email address and a password using the link below. Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to tick the boxes against 12 short questions about aspects of the school, the quality of teaching, level of homework, etc.


Thank you in advance for your participation.

Farewell to a family travelling overseas

Just to confirm our 2 children will not be returning to Howe Dell after half term. Their last day will be Friday 23rd October.

We are extremely grateful to you and all the staff at school for all the support, teaching and encouragement the kids have received.

I'm sure there is no other school like Howe Dell and we will miss it dearly. Luckily with the guidance and nurturing you have all provided since Day Care Ruby and Robert are well equipped to handle and hopefully flourish in their new schools.

We have many fond and happy memories to take to Zimbabwe with us. Thank you from the four of us.

Best Wishes to you, all the staff and children for the future.
