What others think about us

We welcome and seek feedback from parents, children, staff and other professionals to help improve the service we provide. We’d love to hear from you if you have any ideas, suggestions, praise or criticism to share with us.

It was so good to visit your setting last week and hear about all of the amazing work you are doing with the children in your care and their families.

I think you have some real strengths to share, your provision is always at a high level and you are constantly reflecting on your practice and developing to meet the needs of your children.

At Holy Cross, we all greatly appreciated the liason with you in ensuring a smooth transfer from nursery to our school … we have not experienced such positive and constructive working relationships with any other pre-school.

Mairi Tullett - Inclusion Co-ordinator, Holy Cross Primary School

I am glad to be able to let you know that [child] has had a good first week at Blackheath High… She has been happy to attempt new things and asked me to help her come down the “fireman’s pole” in our playground, when she saw another girl doing this. She is able to manage her own coat (unlike most of the others!!) and has been quick to learn our routines… So thank you for your input in doing all the hard work before she came to us! I hope we can keep up the good work.

Nikki Slater - Class teacher, NPM Blackheath High Junior School

I want to firstly thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the most fantastic teachers and helping [child’s] skills develop and exceed any of my expectations… you have been wonderful and showed him the patience and time that he needed.

Each and every one of you hold a special place in my heart with all the help you have given [child] and myself and we will truly miss you all.

I wish you all the luck in the future and hope that Newstead Road goes from strength to strength. It is an amazing place, where I always knew [child] loved to be… you are truly amazing.
