We just wanted to say thank you for leading such a calm start to the Spring term for our son. We appreciate that is not easy in the chaos induced by the current National pandemic and such mixed messages being given to all schools.
Our son is really enjoying the well organised online teaching and he felt reassured by the one-to-one well-being meeting with his tutor on Friday morning. We appreciate the pastoral support for him as well as the continuation of academic teaching of his current curriculum.
Thank you and keep up the great work. Our thanks to all your dedicated staff who we can see are having to work from home (which isn’t easy!)St Benedict's Parent, January 2021
Please will you pass on to your colleagues how much we appreciate the efforts you are all going to at this very difficult time.
Our son is enjoying the lessons and seems to be engaging with them!St Benedict's Parent, January 2021
I want to thank you and all the teachers at St Benedict’s for providing such excellent remote learning for the pupils. As a working parent it really helps me to be able to carry out my job whilst I know that my daughter continues with her education at a high standard as if she were in school.St Benedict's Parent, January 2021
I just wanted to acknowledge how positive the parents evening was from my perspective and to extend a big thank you to all the staff involved. I know teachers are being asked to really go above and beyond right now and I wanted to say that it is very much appreciated by parents and pupils.
Please do pass on my appreciation and thanks to all the staff who stayed online to do these appointments quite late into the evening.St Benedict's Parent, January 2021
I have to say the home-schooling seems much more difficult than before. I have not seen this level of demotivation in my children - ever. There are moments of joy and maybe things will improve with encouragement.
Those moments of joy have included some unpredictable experiences such as a calming effect of doing standard form in maths (who would have thought), some joy in getting to grips with a physics problem and the netball umpiring session which was brilliantly delivered. Do feedback to your excellent staff.St Benedict's Parent, January 2021
Throughout this very difficult last year, you and all the teachers have been nothing short of brilliant.
All the communication we have received has been clear, concise and always optimistic. The online learning has been excellent from day one.
We are so incredibly grateful and are in no doubt that you, the teachers and pupils of St Benedict’s will come through this, achieving the best possible results.St Benedict's Parent, January 2021
I wanted to pass on our sincere thanks for all you have done this year.
You and your staff’s constant and tireless work to provide a stable learning environment for the pupils, in this very difficult year, has been greatly appreciated. My son has continued to enjoy school and has progressed in his learning, which is no mean feat this year!SSt Benedict's Parent, December 2020
I would just like to extend my sincere gratitude to you and all the staff members for the amazing work done whilst in remote learning. The incredible organisation and effort put in place were simply extraordinary.St Benedict's Parent, December 2020
I would like to let you know how pleased I am with the remote learning provision.
It has been very well organised and carried out. My daughter has embraced and enjoyed the online lessons and I feel that apart from missing her friends' and teachers' physical presence she has learnt quite a lot. I would like to say thanks to everyone involved in providing us with the online learning.St Benedict's Parent, December 2020
I would just like to say that in my opinion the school has done an excellent job in supporting the children in this past year in very difficult circumstances and the quality of education hasn't suffered at all.St Benedict's Parent, December 2020
We would like to congratulate you and your wonderful staff on a tough year educating our children.St Benedict's Parent, December 2020
I wanted to congratulate you and your team for all that have done and continue to do for our young people. I can’t imagine the journey of a school Headmaster during the pandemic, but as a parent, please know it has always felt you are a safe pair of hands. The communication, honesty and thoughtfulness embedded in every decision has always landed gently and is very much appreciated.St Benedict's Parent, December 2020
