Comments from the Parent Questionnaire in July 2017

 

Comments about our school include:

‘The school feels like a village school - safe, family-friendly. I love how all of the teachers know all of the children's names.’

 

‘Excellent teaching staff and support workers. Good selection of after school clubs.’

 

‘From day one my daughter has returned from school so happy and excited to go back the next day. VIP weeks in Reception are fantastic - school report was very informative. Good events - especially road safety.’

 

‘Varied curriculum with engaging and fun school trips. Good understanding of each child's capabilities and encouraging and stretching them to reach their full potential. Strong communication links between school and parents. Making school a safe environment and also a fun experience for children.’

 

‘Create a happy pro-learning environment - creating a community.’

 

‘Communication is very good - we also like the ethos of the school. The partnership approach and the way we feel part of the wider school community is great.’

 

‘Caring and nurturing environment but with good discipline and standards. Approachable and friendly staff. Good clear transparent communication.

Provide a safe and happy environment taking all opportunities to enhance the way in which the children are taught. This, I feel, lends itself to optimizing the children's learning potential and they benefit enormously from it - thank you.’

 

‘What can I say? Both my girls love school, are so happy and are thriving - such a lovely community feel!’

 

‘Great community feel - lots of great events both PTA and school led.’

 

‘Personal individual knowledge of the children - really consistent gentle encouragement if something is tricky. Really caring atmosphere around the school.’

 

‘Teach children to be well mannered, respect others and look after each other. Most of the children are extremely polite and respectful to others.’

 

‘Learning is centred on each student - shining a light on their strengths and supporting them in areas they need to work on. Nurture children, give each child a love of learning, teach them to challenge themselves, let them be children and learn in a fun, stimulating and engaging way. You are interested in the whole child - socially, emotionally as well as educationally.’

 

‘Create a community spirit. Ensure the kids are happy and safe. Create a welcoming and warm educational environment.’

 

‘Fantastic caring school with a lovely learning environment and fabulous teachers.’

 

‘Promote social values. It's a friendly supportive environment a bit like a big family. When they went on to high school there were many ex-pupils who came up to say hello and settle in.’

 

‘Lane End is truly a special place where each child is valued and given the opportunity to thrive. The chances you give children and the fact they openly come to teachers with ideas shows how they feel accepted and safe. Comparing our experiences with parents of other schools show again what a fantastic school it is.’

 

‘Final year as Lane End parents. Both of our children have thoroughly enjoyed their time at Lane End and have both left having reached their full potential. This has/will put them in great stead as they move to high school. It is a true credit to the leadership of the school and the teaching staff at Lane End – thanks.’
