“…issues are dealt with quickly and efficiently.”

“I cannot praise the school and staff enough.  Excellent support from staff has been so valuable and thankfully challenging mornings are now a thing of the past.” 

“We really appreciate everything that the school has done for us in the past and present, thank you!”

“The school has a very lovely “family” feel to it, which I believe truly helps the children.”

“My daughter has had great support from her teacher.”

“Very good, with all aspects of (her) education”

“”…great with my daughter and always there if I have any worries or problems.  Very good communication and would highly recommend this school.”

“She loves it and seems to be thriving”

“Thanks to the staff and pupils for helping her settle in to her new school, she really likes it there.”

“This year feels like a fresh start for the whole school.  Communication between school staff and parents has improved greatly. XXXX loves her new class and XXXX is a very fun and caring teacher.”

“You are fantastic. XXXX is so happy here and I can see the progress he is making every day.”

“My daughter enjoys all aspects of school life and is very happy at Weston Rhyn.  She is full of praise for all the wonderful and hardworking staff.”

“XXXX would not be where he is without the support he has received from staff at the school.  Thank you!!  His life has changed for the better because of the love, understanding and compassion of the staff at the school”

“We have been impressed with the positive impression that the Headteacher has made on our children, despite only being at the school for one half term.”

“Prompt and proportionate response to complaints”

“Early identification of dyslexia and good input and support.”

“Good communication”

“All the staff are very approachable”

“…teachers are always very supportive and encouraging...”

“I am pleased with the progress he has been making since starting Weston Rhyn.  He has grown into a happy little boy.”

“XXXX has thrived and developed very well since starting Weston Rhyn.  He is a completely different child now.”

“Teachers are always supportive.”

“XXXX is very quick to both pass on and respond to information/queries via Class Dojo”

“Class Dojo (with prizes for reaching milestones)is a great positive way to reward our son and gives us a chance to praise his achievements at home too”

“The above demonstrates staff commitment in the school, as I feel they are above/beyond actions of a class teacher and take a huge amount of personal time to complete, but make a very positive impact on our son’s school experience (he’s already looking forward to being an ‘agent’ later this year when they do tests).

“…it could be hard to meet everyone’s needs (with such a varied school population), but there seems to be a good balance”

“Our first priority is that our child is happy, and he is”

“xxxx is very happy with Weston Rhyn, as are we as parents”

“Generally, my children are really happy at school”

“Since September, the school has started to become more a part of the local community, long may it continue.”

The efforts of the wider staff team to improve the general ‘look’ of the school have not gone unnoticed – well done everyone!

“10 minutes for parents evening was just right, previously it was a rushed 5 minutes with insufficient time”

“Compared to friends with children in other schools, I think communication is really good”

“Really like the activity/creative days…the bug hotels have been exciting this year, and look forward to hearing and seeing what else is to come.  Thank you”

“Excellent community spirit across the year groups, giving older children responsibilities”.

“I think Tapestry is a brilliant way of showing parents what their child is doing in Nursery/playgroup.  We love seeing what XXXX has been up to, show him the photos, and he elaborates and tells us what he has been up to.”

“Very happy with how much XXXX enjoys his time at Nursery/playgroup.  His development has improved since he started, thanks to the lovely teachers.”

“XXXX has always loved school, never had any issues with him wanting to go.  According to XXXX, his teacher is the best and funniest teacher so far!”

“Mrs xxxx and Mrs xxxx work well with my son and I must say they’re both very supportive and he has developed so much in confidence whilst being with them.  Overall a wonderful school.”

“XXXX is very happy generally and when I had concerns…Mrs XXXX saw me very quickly and dealt with my worries”.

“Mrs XXXX is fab, XXXX really enjoys being with her and Mrs XXXX”.

“XXXX said that I had to mention that he loves doing tens and ones”.

“I also feel that the increase in interaction and information being made available online is a great idea, as XXXX’s school bag seems to be a black hole, and I have previously missed information that was just sent home in hard copy”.

“Staff are fantastic, keep up the good work".
