Parent Voice Next Steps Presentation

All welcome to attend Parent Voice! Have your say in continuing to develop the best school in the Universe!

Careers talk.
Year 2 would like to say thank you to Mrs Kortekaas and Mr McFarling for coming into school and telling the children about their careers. The children were fascinated to learn about radiography and camerawork. These career talks have inspired many children to think about and discuss careers.

Messages from a Parents Children Recently Moved to Secondary School

I just wanted to send a note of thanks.

(My daughter) has just been placed in her sets in Maths and I was so proud to be told she was in Set 1, the highest!

I personally do not believe this would have been the case if Miss Madden had not have given up her time and supported her (plus Mr Mason's Maths Group is cool and she desperately wanted to be in that!)

Thank you so much for giving her a good start to secondary school and helping her to unlock her potential.

Kindest Regards




Dear Mrs Massey


I thought you’d like to know that we are a very proud family with Freddie achieving 8 GCSE subjects at Grade 9 and 2 subjects at Grade 8. He will be going into the Sixth Form to take A Level English Literature, Spanish, Government & Politics, and Classical Civilisations. 


Your Howe Dell boy has done well! Thanks for giving him a great start. 


Kind regards,

Home Learning - Parent Voice Feedback

Children choose Level of challenge? How does that work? A presentation in response from Parent Voice Discussion and Live Learning to Invite parents to come in and see this happening.

Live Learning Sessions


Thank you to everyone who attended our Spring Live Learning sessions - lots of lovely feedback and great comments - all of which have been passed on to the class teachers. We hope you have all enjoyed receiving your certificates!


"The teachers and teaching assistants are amazing - thank you!"

"We learnt that you can never be too safe online"

"My participation in the session showed my child that we are never too old to learn"

"I enjoyed seeing how the children had to use their imagination"


You have asked for lots of other subjects to be covered in future, however, when asked what subjects you would like to see one of our favourite responses was "Any - it's good when we all work together".


Watch out for details of next term's sessions in class newsletters and Dates For Diaries.


Have a look below at the wordle which has been put together from your 3-word summaries.
