Feedback Sessions During Remote Learning

A true Howe Dell Family Christmas supported by our amazing PSA (Amazon styled Christmas Shopping, Virtual Disco... the list goes on) and parents quick to show their support and thanks.

Families, keen to say thank you as whole school returns Sept 2020 after Covid-19 Lockdown.


I cannot put down in words how grateful I am as both a parent and a governor for all the hard work you have put in to keeping the school running through lockdown, to start it up on 1st June and for all the planning for Summer School and full opening in September. Of course it’s a team effort but also requires amazing leadership! You have absolutely smashed it! I can’t tell you how happy my children are to have come back to school and everything you do is definitely worth it- you have provided a safe and happy environment for so many families, and we are truly grateful.


Thank you on so many levels! Firstly, thank you for the support for xxx and our family when I had to work in the US at the start of xxx's school life. Thank you for making Howe Dell a safe, enjoyable and amazing place for xxx to return post lockdown. Thank you for being you! You are an amazing Headteacher, practically perfect in every way!!


Thank you so much for everything you have done for Howe Dell. You have helped me so much.


Thanks for working hard during the Covid-19 period.

Wishing you a great summer break and hoping school goes well in September.


I hope you keep well and safe. See you soon.

Thank you for being the best Headteacher ever.


Thank you for everything you do for the children at Howe Dell. They are so lucky to have such a passionate and hardworking Headteacher.

Thank you for another wonderful, yet testing year! In true Howe Dell style it was positive, happy and safe.

Thank you for all the support over the years.


 Thanks for all your love and encouragement. I am missing school terribly and can’t wait to be back soon!


I miss going to school! Can’t wait to see everybody again.


Thank you for welcoming us into the Howe Dell family. For all you have done for our girls, we are truly grateful. We will never forget your commitment and energy. You are simply an inspiration!

AGM Minutes - 5th May 2021

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,

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.
