What our Parents/Carers said:

I appreciated the school extending the school day for all the children, even if they worked hard

through lockdown. Not just the ones who hadn't met targets etc.


Thank you all for being the absolute best team of committed, enthusiastic and nurturing, wonderful



Good remote learning for children through Covid.


Excellent support for ALL children when they returned, including the extended school days to ensure

that all school received catch up support rather than those classified as more vulnerable

(government term)


Great teacher this year who has really encouraged and inspired our son to ENJOY reading.

Very good communications from school, especially throughout Covid, parents are always reliably

I think the school and staff have been amazing throughout this incredibly difficult time. Despite all

the additional measures and changes that have had to be put in place, they have always put the

such a wonderful school!


With all the challenges presented to us this year, our son has continued to be happy and make

excellent progress. A big thank you to everyone!!

This school has been a great school for my son and his older brother before he went to senior

school. Both my boys have done fantastic at this school and the teachers have been amazing so

caring, thoughtful and extremely helpful. All teachers did amazing work through lockdown with

home learning, videos and constant weekly phone calls to my son which I personally found very help

and he was so grateful. Thank you all


This is a fantastic school. All the staff are amazing and all play a key role in my daughter’s life,

are a high priority.

I just want to thank the school, for everything they do for this generation. You have ensured that

learning can be fun and safe during this difficult time. And I hope that everyone involved is rightfully

rewarded. Thank you for supporting my child and ensuring their education never was jeopardized.

My son really loves school and has settled well into the junior school despite the school closures. His

teachers have been fantastic with him and … I am grateful for the work his teachers have put into

this with him and the encouragement he has been given.


The school is amazing and teachers are fantastic. My son is going to really miss being here when he

leaves next year


My daughter’s two teachers have made her transition to junior school seamless. She has come on so

well but has also been allowed to share her personality. Thank you Canford Heath Junior School
