What the school says...

New school opened September 2011.

What the parents say...

My daughter started Year 2 at George Carey Church of England Primary School and she is very happy with the new environment, class teacher and classmates. Every day she goes to school with a great desire and shares how lovely and interesting is to be at this new for her place. She feels comfortable, safe, respected and evaluated for her work. At our first meeting in the school we were welcomed by the Headteacher, Mr Harrison who gave us a tour of the school, presented us the site, the newly equipped and spacious classrooms, the enormous playground, stressed on the high achievements of the pupils for the last years and introduced us the class teacher. This is a new school, but extremely well organised and developed, the staff is also very supportive and kind. For the smooth start in the school the children are offered a taster day which is very helpful for the initial adaptation to the new environment. Our class teacher is a sunny, polite and very dedicated person to her work, she treats the children with care, love and creates positive atmosphere in the class. When she first met us, she showed us the classroom, explained in detail what they study in Maths, English, Science and talked about the school daily routines which was essential for me to know how to support the educational process. She supports greatly the settling of my daughter in the class, accepts her so warmly at this very beginning which made the child feels comfortable and welcomed by all classmates. It is very important for us to have a good start at the new place. We are very pleased and happy to have such a lovely teacher. In a few weeks later, we were invited to a class assembly where the Headteacher Mr Harrison personally rewards the pupils for their successes. Amazing organisation and personal commitment to the pupils, he is interested in their achievements and getting feedback from the teachers. He deals easily with the children and adores a lot the communication with pupils which makes them feel respected, rewarded and proud of their efforts and work. He is a very highly professional person who is fully dedicated to his work, teachers, pupils, parents and all the school; creates this excellent environment at the place where the children enjoy all the moments spend in school. I strongly recommend George Carey Church of England Primary School as one of the best schools to all children and parents.
