What the parents say...

The school is a nice school with happy children however when my son started at the school or registered there were 78 pupils and now there is 144 pupils. There are no additional classrooms and the years are dualled which means there are now 15 pupils of one year and 16 pupils of the second year in one class room when there used to be 6 and 7. My son has to sit with his back to the blackboard which I find unacceptable, and the seating is rarely moved around.. Last year in year 2 my son had two part time teachers one working mon and tues and the other working Wed, thurs, and Frid. I do think the teachers work hard and they say it is the Cambridgehire County council keep putting pressure on the schools. Apparently CCC are one of the worst Councils in the UK for funding schoos. There is one other problem. The school has only a tarmac playground and this slopes distinctly downwards. The ball runs down the hill. This is very bad for children's bone development. There is a jungle gym on a small patch of grass which is hardly satisfactory either at the rear of the school.. If I was offset I would no longer rate the school "a good school" Their inspection was about 3 years ago the year my son started at the school

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.
