A selection of kind comments from parents with children at St Clement Danes Church of England Primary School:
'I just wanted to say thank you for letting us come to your school and do the focus group. Your school has been the best school we have worked with so far! The students and teachers were absolutely lovely, and it was a pleasure to work with them. If you could pass our thank you on to the teachers I would really appreciate it.'
'Now that the dust has settled (for us anyway!) after the recent school application process I feel I should write and thank you for taking the time to show us around your school.'
'I have spent a lot of time visiting schools over the last few months as I am eager to make the right choice for my daughter when she starts in Reception in September. It was great to meet someone with as much passion for their school as you have, who was willing to spend time with parents answering questions which you must have heard many times before.'
'I loved the atmosphere of the school and the examples and stories of how the children behave and respond to learning. I was really impressed with the work you and the staff have done to improve the school over recent years.'
'I thought you would be interested to know that we have put your school as our first choice. We think it would be ideal for our daughter and for us as parents as we are very keen to become involved at her school.'
'Hopefully we will meet again in a few months! Whatever the outcome, I wanted to let you know how impressed I was with your school, the staff and pupils.'
'Thank you for taking the time to show me around your school this morning, I very much enjoyed it. I left the school feeling very confident and also excited that this would be the best school for my son. I have viewed a few other schools in the local area, and after much consideration I have decided that I would like to accept a place within your Year 3 group as it looks perfect for him.'
'I would like to say thank you to you and your team for making both Jon and myself feel so welcome. I was amazed by all the children and their behaviour. You must be very proud of them and of the hard work your teachers obviously undertake with the children. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with you all and would have happily spent all day talking and spending time with them. Thank you for the picture you sent Jon. That will take pride of place in my office at the gym. If there is ever anything else I can assist with then please do not hesitate to say, be it in my capacity as a fitness instructor, special constable or as an ex dancer.'
