A bit late in the day but I just wanted to wish you and all the staff at school good luck with the first day back today. I hope it went well and the children enjoyed being back. I just wanted to take this time to also say thank you for being such a fantastic teacher. You helped Max settle in from day one and he’s come such a long way since then, he loves going to school and has certainly missed it and I put a lot of that down to you and the rest of the school staff who have shown kindness, care, comfort and patience towards him. I am so proud to say that Max attends Saint George’s and that’s all thanks to the hard work that yourself and everyone else has put in, especially during these past few months. I so hope in 3 weeks time our current situation is better and that Max can come back before school is out for summer.
I am sure all will share my admiration for the care and work which lie behind the arrangements being made and planned, and will in particular want to extend good wishes to all involved in what is to happen in the Primary Phase on 1 June. Compliments to them on the detail of the thinking, and the professional preparation which it is involving.
From a personal point of view I’ve found moving to see in these documents not only the attention to detail the situation is demanding, but also the profound and equally detailed care for pupils, families and staff which has for me been a distinctive hallmark of Saint George’s throughout my decades of involvement.
Thank you so much to all of you for what you are doing – you are all so amazing. My daughter logged on to Google Classroom the other day and her Geography teacher gave her so much support – she was amazing! Take care all of you, keep safe and eat lots of chocolate!
Dear Ms Scott-Halsey, Thank you for your e mail and your continued hard work. Both Lizz and I know first hand how challenging it is and we are extremely grateful for everything school is doing and has done. Both Abi and Ben are fine with their work. Stay safe and Best wishes
Just a big thank you to you all at St George’s. I am so impressed with how you got everything up and running so quickly to allow the students to access everything needed from home. My daughter feels completely supported and has taken herself off to her room every day to do the assigned tasks and says her teachers are great at getting back to her quickly if she’s had a query. She’s working with her friends, face timing them and working through questions together. Thank you for everything and take care!
Thank you all so much for what you are doing and please take care and keep well.
Thank you for all the support you are providing during this very challenging time.
Firstly I hope you are all safe and well x I hope and pray that life returns to normality very soon for us all. Keep safe everyone and I totally appreciate the huge amount of strain you will be under in trying to prioritize students and balancing your home lives. So thank you and please take care.
And thank you and your staff for all you are doing and putting in place at this scary time.
I just wanted to say a very big thank you to all teachers and the school staff for their efforts in these challenging times.
When Louise showed me her Google Classrooms set up I was amazed. I can’t imagine what a huge task it has been for the school to prepare for this and put all the necessary resources in place. We are so very grateful for everything that has been done.
Please pass on my thanks to the Head and all school staff.
Wishing you well.
just wanted to say a little Thank you from my son. We are so grateful, he feels so safe with all those around him and this shows in his personal growth and development.
Have a fab day…..2nd day in already can’t believe how easy we all slip back in to the routine!
Dear Saint George’s Primary,
This morning I attended the prospective parents tour and talk. I must say I was very impressed right from the start. I received a very warm welcome from your office staff and I was greeted by Steve Carey (who was my English teacher during my own time at Saint George’s!) who asked for my honest feedback. The refreshments were a very welcome gesture which I have not received at any other school I have looked at. It also made a pleasant change for the children to be catered for with the opportunity of play and creative activities during the talk. This allowed the parents the time to listen to what the staff had to say. It’s clear that the teachers are as passionate about the primary school as they are about the secondary school. Although the primary is very new it is clear that the Saint George’s ethos and vision are ingrained in the very bones of the school.
It’s great to hear that there is much collaboration between the primary and secondary and fantastic that the secondary teachers are utilised to teach their specialities to the younger ones. As a prospective parent I felt a little bit nervous about applying for a place at a brand new school. There is no historical Ofsted inspections to look at and no reputation among parents about what the school is actually like. It was lovely to hear what the children had to say about their school and it was a privilege to see them engaged in their learning while we were touring the school. Perhaps, for future talks, some testimonies from parents would be a useful addition? Any apprehensions I have about applying for the September 2020 intake have been allayed.
Please congratulate all staff and children for making us feel so welcome and for expanding the Saint George’s community. You have created a wonderful school!
Pupil wellbeing is at the centre of everything they do. Cannot praise the school enough for how they support children and families. Would recommend the school to all!
Fantastic family feeling and my daughter is having the best time! Care for her as a whole person and not just academically (which is brilliant too). She got to take part in the light parade after an art workshop to make the lantern!
