FEEDBACK FROM PARENTS - JULY 2019
“Thanks to the WH team for another fantastic year. We're very lucky to have such a wonderful school.”
“We are very grateful and cannot thank the school authorities enough for impacting goodwill in the students. What an amazing school!”
“As a new Mum to the school, I’ve found that the family feel and inclusiveness has been wonderful. You have put Nathan completely at ease and he’s gone from a boy who hated school and had no friends to loving school with loads of friends. The school show was a definite highlight.”
“Great support with helping parents understand what their children is learning.”
“Just thank you for being a great school educationally and for also understanding the needs of each of your pupils. Giving the confidence and an extremely happy environment to learn in’
“I love the school. My children have never moaned about going and actually run inside when the gates open. The school provide such a happy environment. My absolute favourite times are when parents are allowed to go and have a small snap shot of their children in school by spending time/days with them in school.”
“The last year has been an incredible journey. Starting school and seeing the development in our child is amazing. Dedicated staff = dedicated children. He can not wait to come into school, long may it continue. Thank you”
“The care and support she has received, the opportunities she has been given and the progress she has made have been fantastic. I would highly recommend this school”
“Every element is great - really enjoy Women and men in school and school show”
“The school show was very good again but the best part of the year is the progress I have seen my daughter make”
"A school that cares to care."
"My day at school with my son is a day that I look forward to all year. It’s probably a day that the school doesn’t look so forward too as they are leaving themselves in a vulnerable position. However it shows me the importance that they are willing to get it right and I think it is working positively year on year . Thank you and well done WHPS"
"It’s great to be able to get together not only with the children but also the other parents who seem to look forward to this every year"
"Another exceptional 'men in school day'. All staff go out of their way to prepare a day which brings us closer to our child's learning journey. It's such a pleasure to see the children brimming with excitement about the day."
"A welcoming school that strives in providing inclusive practice"
This school is highly unique. It is always clear that pupils' happiness is at the heart of the curriculum at WHPS. The headteacher Mr O'Grady regularly says that "happy children learn". So simple and so true, but not easy to achieve. They do an amazing job building strong partnerships with parents and we could not be happier with this school. Thank you!
I found the day an inspiration for the next steps in my child's development.
"Dear Mr O’Grady,
I have the pleasure of forwarding you below some very positive feedback from Rebecca, one of our freelance educators who teaches schools at the National Maritime Museum. Please do pass on to the children and congratulate them on their excellent learning skills.
With best wishes,

Dear Mr O'Grady,
Thank you for bringing your children to the National Maritime Museum today, I hope they enjoyed their experience and picked up some interesting facts to start them on the right track for their Vikings project.
I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed working with the children from West Horndon. I found them to be interested and very willing to have a go at answering questions without fear of failing, even though they were right at the start of their project and had little prior knowledge. I was very impressed by certain members of the group who contextualized and applied the information they received. I also found all the children to be extremely polite towards me and each other which was a real joy to witness.
I have the pleasure in teaching a wide variety of children from all sorts of backgrounds and I am happy to say that memories of teaching your class from West Horndon will stay with me for a long time.
