Nursery parent comments

My daughter has had a wonderful year in Nursery, always saying what a good time she has had. We are very proud of her progress, both social and academic and we didn’t know how advanced her reading already is.

My son has had such a lovely time at Nursery. He has been so happy to go in every day and is now very excited to start Reception. I am very happy with his report, it’s lovely to hear he has done well and is a good boy. I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff for making his time there so good.

To everyone who has looked after my daughter over the past year – a big thank you! She has really enjoyed going to Nursery and I know she had lots of fun and really developed her self-confidence. Thank you for your care you are giving her each day, I truly appreciate that.

I am very happy to hear that my daughter can be relied upon to help keep the classroom tidy as she also does this well at home. I am pleased she has made the most of her year in Nursery and am confident she will progress even further in Reception.

We are delighted in reading our son’s first school report and pleased he is doing so well. It is clear that he shares his interests at home and in school and his dinosaur expertise is acknowledged! We can see a positive change in his concentration and approach to school life. He can read 70+ cvc words (with blending) at home and I am happy with his progress in reading.

We are so happy with how much our son has come along since attending Nursery. He loves school and is excited for Reception

We are very proud of how well our son has done in Nursery this year! He has enjoyed it and learnt a lot of new things – he is looking forward to starting Reception in September.

We are so pleased our son had the opportunity to spend this year at Nursery. His phonics knowledge is really good and he just wants to read everything! Thank you so much. He has had a great time and is really looking forward to Reception.


Reception parent comments

My daughter is happy and confident – skipping into school every morning. She loves to learn and is always eager to share her knowledge with us. Thank you for making her feel so welcome.

We are very happy with our daughter’s progress and all of the hard work and support given by the school. Many thanks.

My son has made good progress and it is amazing how well his reading has come along and lovely to see him take an interest in the actual story and not just reading words. He has been trying hard at home with his writing and sometimes gets frustrated or doesn’t want to attempt to write. He enjoys school and tries to please his teachers.

I am pleasantly pleased with my son’s report. I feel he has a good start to school and has enjoyed his first year. Really pleased with his phonics, but we are still struggling to get him to blend his letters. We would like to use the offer of support from his teacher for ideas for things we can do over the holidays to help to improve this further.

Thank you for such a lovely report. We are extremely proud of our daughter’s achievements this year. She loves coming to school, even asking to go at weekends. She is starting to try and read her own story books at home independently. Her colouring in and drawing has greatly improved. It has been amazing to see the development of her reading and writing skills over the year.

Firstly I would like to thank my Son’s teacher for all the help she has given him. We have noticed a vast improvement with his speech and his understanding. We are very pleased that he is on target and where he should be. We will carry on with his numbers 1-20 and with his reading and writing during the summer. Thank you again to all the teachers in his class. We are very proud of him.

Thank you for such a lovely report for our daughter. She has loved being in her Reception class so much and would like to be back there in September! After reading this, tiny concerns I had about my daughter have gone.

We are very pleased with the fantastic progress our daughter has made during her time in Reception. We are pleased with how she picked up very well with her reading and writing. She has become very confident in writing herself a story using her fabulous imagination!

We are thrilled with our son’s progress during his year in Reception. He has loved school from day 1 and looks forward to it every day. His reading and writing have really impressed us, he seems to have picked it up quickly and enjoys the learning. Thank you to all the staff in his class for making school such a positive experience for him.

I am so proud of my son and the time and effort he has put into his work, especially his reading! I’m so grateful to the staff in his class for helping and pushing him to where he is now! I can’t fault the school with anything, so happy we made the right choice of school.  Could we possibly know what books to get him over the summer holiday please, and I will help with his writing skills over the holiday.

Thank you for our daughter’s report. We are very pleased with the comments and acknowledgements made. It is of great importance to us that she enjoys her time at school and gains greatly from it. We have told her how pleased and proud we are of her and all that she has achieved in Reception. We feel that she has been very lucky to have had such a great start to her education. This has been brought about by the fantastic support, care and encouragement given by her teachers. We would like to thank them for all they have done for her, in laying the very best foundations for her future. We look forward to her being in Year 1 and continuing to give her support, encouragement and praise for all that she achieves.

It has been wonderful to see our daughter growing in such confidence over the past academic year. School has been an amazing vehicle for her inquisitive mind. We have been working at home on her reading (using Biff, Chip & Kipper books), and her writing and will continue to do so over the holidays. We recognise that she can do it but has some difficulty getting the words from her mind onto paper.

My daughter has enjoyed her Reception year in school and I am very happy to hear that she has been doing so well in school. She has had a wonderful teacher and has loved being in her class. She also is really happy and feeling very confident about joining Year 1.

What a wonderful first school report. We are so proud of our daughter and all that she has achieved this year. She really does enjoy all aspects of her learning and is keen to share her work with us. She also loves to continue her learning at home by practising her writing and reading and is always creating and making things. She has thoroughly enjoyed being in her class but she is equally delighted with her new teacher for Year 1.

We are very happy and proud of our son’s report and wanted to thank you for all your support and time you have given him over the last year. He certainly loves coming to school and I know he has worked very hard with his reading, maths and writing. We will be trying to encourage him with activities which involve practising these over the holiday.

Both myself and my husband are over the moon and very proud of our son’s report. We both feel the report has reflected his first year at school very well. We are very grateful for the time and support that has been put into his education and his confidence in areas of learning has soared.

I am incredibly proud of the progress my daughter has made in her first year at school. She definitely responds to compliments and praise and once she gains self-confidence she is eager to learn more. She is always ‘teaching’ me things at home. She is always reading signposts and writes stories and she is happy to make mistakes and happy for me to correct them. Once again, we are very happy with her progress this year.

I would like to say thank you for the support my son has received this year. I will continue to practice reading and writing with him over the holiday. We will also try to speak more English at home with him.

We are incredibly proud of our son’s fantastic progress since starting Reception last September. He has come so far in so many ways. What a fantastic year. We look forward to seeing how much more he progresses in Year 1.  We can’t thank the staff involved with him enough, for all they have done for him, the continued support and hard work over this past year Thank you all so much for everything!

My daughter has enjoyed her year in Reception immensely! She is such a happy child and seems to feel truly at ease at school. She has enjoyed dressing up, days out and loves being the special person! I hope this will continue into Year 1 which she is very excited to be starting in September. Thank you for giving her a wonderful flying start to her education.

I am very impressed with my son’s progress, especially his writing. He has thoroughly enjoyed the making table!

We are very pleased with our son’s report. He clearly enjoys school and more recently at home, he has been easier to motivate with home learning (maybe he has matured). He’s a happy and determined little man at home too, so it’s good to hear he displays these traits at school. We are proud of him. Big thankyou to the staff in his class for all their efforts.

A very pleasing report. Our daughter has done well this year and she has enjoyed being in her Reception class. Her reading is improving, she will now take home a book. She has enjoyed practising writing her name and is very pleased that she can write it neatly. We have been very pleased with the progress she has made this year and the standard of teaching has been excellent.

We are really pleased with our son’s report. Having been quite worried at the beginning of the year as to whether he was ready for ‘big school’. We are really thrilled with the progress he has made and we are extremely proud of his trying attitude. We really don’t underestimate how much of his progress is equally down to the effort that has been given to him by his teachers. We cannot thank enough the teaching staff who have really given him the best start in his education we could have wished for. Thank you all so, so much.

We have watched our son develop in confidence throughout all aspects of his schooling. We have been particularly impressed with his reading and phonics, especially as he started the school year only being able to write his name. We have watched him develop some lovely friendships and look forward to the new challenges Year 1 will bring. His development and confidence is largely down to the continued support of his teacher.

It was lovely to read how well my daughter is doing in school, the confidence she shows with her writing is great. She enjoys home learning, however, she will lose her temper very quickly with me if I don’t do it the same way as her teachers. As she is growing up she is becoming quite shy and clingy, so it is good to hear how well and confident she is. She talks highly of her teachers.

We are incredibly proud of all that our son has achieved during his Reception year. He loves school and is always happy to tell us what he has done. We will continue to help and encourage him with his reading and writing. We would like to thank his teacher for sparking such a love for school in him, he feels very lucky to have had her for his teacher.

My daughter has had a fantastic year in Reception, thanks to her great teachers. Once she got over her initial fear of going to school, she’s had a smile on her face every morning. I’m looking forward to seeing how well she progresses in Year 1.

I am pleased with how well my daughter has done and her learning this last year has come on so well. Very proud mummy. Thank you for being a great school.

I feel my son has come a long way this year. Thank you for the added support he has been given. I will endeavour to keep up the reading, writing and maths in the summer holidays.

We’re delighted with our daughter’s report and very happy to hear that she’s making such great progress personally and academically. It’s lovely to hear how well she’s settled in to school and that she’s confident around children and grownups. Thank you so much for all the hard work and support you have given her this year.

Our daughter has had an absolutely amazing time at school. She has enjoyed everything. She is really enjoying learning and is always excited to be going to school. We feel she has come on and developed so much and are really pleased and proud of this progress. She can’t speak highly enough of all the staff she has worked with. She is sad to be leaving Reception but incredibly excited about Year 1, as are we!

My daughter has really enjoyed her time in Reception. We are pleased she is doing well and that her teachers have provided her with the support and focus she needs.

We are delighted with the progress our son has made. We are very proud of him and very pleased with his school report. We would like to thank his teacher and everyone else who has helped him. His teacher is warm and approachable and has really helped and supported him and also helped me with any concerns I have had. I am so pleased at how well he can read. He reads everything at home, from road signs to shampoo bottles! He is very proud he can read and has enjoyed all the different activities, such as the Teddy Bears’ Picnic. I will look forward to his progressing more. Thank you for a lovely report.

We are very happy and proud of our daughter’s progress this year! She is very happy and confident in school and enjoys every aspect. We thank you for your encouragement through the year, especially with situations like the dinner hall. I knew she would be both happy and sad to move on to Year 1 and I hope she continues at the same rate of progression.

Thank you for a lovely report. We can see a real improvement in all areas of development in our daughter, especially over the last couple of months – we are very proud of her and her caring nature she has shown. She has loved her time in Reception, thank you for giving her a great start to her school life.

Thank you for our daughter’s report. We are very pleased with it and very proud of her progress. She loves school and the friends she has made. Thank you for giving her a brilliant start to her school career. She has thoroughly enjoyed being in Reception and is always excited to share her learning with us at home. Thank you also for the wonderful care you have taken of her – from the adults in her class to everyone in her school. She loves her teacher and was very lucky to be in her class. She will really miss all the staff in her class, thank you for all your hard work, much appreciated. She’s looking forward to Year 1.

We are so proud of how our son has come on, he has done really well. He has enjoyed his year so much. Thank you for everything you all have done.

We are both very pleased with our daughter’s report. With the right support next year I think she will keep in improving in her writing and reading. She loves her friends and teachers and has enjoyed her first year at Toftwood Infant School. She has a love of learning and hopefully this will keep her going when she has her challenges.

 


Year One parent comments

My son has made positive progress this year and has enjoyed Year 1. I have seen real changes in his academic work – this is mainly down to the support he has received this year. I hope that Year 2 will be just as supportive.

I have really enjoyed reading my son’s school report. He started slightly slow but really has made good progress under your help and guidance. The comments made about his personality and his smile, makes me and my wife really happy! It shows he is happy and I’m sure now set for Year 2. Thank you

I am thrilled with my son’s progress this year. He loves coming to school, learning and of course, telling me all about his day! Special thanks to his teacher for her encouragement and support, he has really blossomed this year.

Both Mummy and Daddy are very proud, well done!

Such a fabulous report! We cannot tell you how proud it made us to read such lovely words about our son. We are hugely proud of everything he has achieved this year. So much of that is down to his teacher, who has transformed his attitude to learning. He finally believes he can achieve things academically. We will never be able to thank you enough!

It’s wonderful to put into context through this report just how much progress my son has made this year. We are very proud of him and would like to thank you for helping him. We will continue to work with him, especially on letter formation and spellings. We know he has greatly enjoyed his year.

We are thrilled with such a positive report for my son. I feel it reflects the amount of effort he puts into everything he does. He has made amazing progress this last year and it wouldn’t have been possible without all the wonderful staff! He has thoroughly enjoyed Year 1 – thank you!

Thank you for this wonderful report. We are again over the moon with the academic and personal progress our daughter has made this year and are thrilled with the comments. She loves school and whilst she finds some aspects tricky, it is clear to see that she thrives within your care. Her progress this year and last year is down to the outstanding support she receives both in and out of the classroom and we cannot thank you enough for the time given to her. Thank you as always for helping her grow into the funny, happy, confident girl we have.

My son has flourished in Year 1 and I am so pleased with his progress. He still needs to improve on his confidence. This is something we work on a lot at home and in and after school, clubs Beavers etc. Here’s to Year 2!

Another brilliant report again for my daughter. So, so proud of her. She has achieved so much this year, and has enjoyed every part of it! She has confidence in everything she does and loves going to school. She has had an amazing teacher, always there to answer any questions I’ve had. The parent sessions were very good and my daughter will miss her!

I am very happy with the progress you are making with my son. I know he is doing very well. A very pleasing school report, I am very proud of him and many thanks to the whole of the school.

I loved reading my daughter’s report and seeing how well she has done this year. I will be sad to see her leave but I’m sure she will continue to blossom.

We would like to say thank you to our daughter’s teacher for such a lovely report. It was a real pleasure to read it and it makes us really happy and proud. We know that she has enjoyed every single day in Year 1. We are very happy with her report and would like to say thank you for being such a great and inspiring teacher. Our daughter was really lucky to be in your class.

My daughter is doing really well. I’m pleased with her progress. She’s enjoying school very much.

We are so proud of this report. My son has done really (very) well in his year. He is proud of himself so thank you for everything you all have done. He really enjoys school and he wants to do his best all the time and this report reflects that.

Thank you so much for all you have done for my son this year. He has really enjoyed being taught by his teacher and has been coming home full of enthusiasm for things he has been learning. I am more than delighted with this report and the progress he has made.

Wow, what great progress! My son really enjoys school and always shares what he has learnt when he gets home.

We would just like to say how proud we are of our daughter and how far she has developed/progressed this year, with the help of fantastic teachers in her class. We hope to see it continue next year. Thank you for looking after our little girl.

We are extremely proud of our daughter and everything that she has achieved this year. We are glad that her teacher has seen how hard she works and that this has paid off! She has really enjoyed being in Year 1 and is very excited about starting in Year 2 in September. It’s lovely to see her enjoy school so much and always be keen to learn.

Very thorough report reminding me of all the great things my daughter has experienced and enjoyed this year. Great to hear of the progress she has made and the support available to help her where she is experiencing difficulties. I know she has really loved her teacher this year.

Really pleased with my daughter’s progress, and proud of the effort she is clearly making.

Really pleased with my daughter’s progress since you became her teacher. She really enjoys school and talks about her day upon return home. We will be encouraging maths skills at home and she often spends time independently writing little stories and letters at home, which she loves to share with us. I hope she continues to enjoy school in year 2.

I am very pleased with my daughter’s report. I am glad she is doing so well and hope she keeps up in Year 2. The teachers have said very lovely things about her. We are very proud of her and everything she has achieved in Year 1.

Huge thanks to my son’s teacher. He has really enjoyed his time with you and will very much miss you.

So pleased with my son’s report – he loves learning and has thoroughly enjoyed his time in Year 1. A massive thank you to his teacher who has been such a positive and engaging teacher and also to the TA for all her support.

We would both like to thank you for the support you have given our daughter to help make her the confident little lady she has become. The knowledge she has gained and remembered from this year never ceases to amaze us. Thank you again.

I am very proud of my son and all the progress he has made in Year 1, and I’d like to say a big thank you to his teacher. I am excited to hear about his progress in Year 2 and looking forward to assisting him with his learning.

My daughter has grown up a lot this year. She has made real progress with her reading. She will miss her TAs especially and she created a lovely bond with her teacher over the year. Thank you very much for all your hard work this year.

What a fantastic report. I am so proud of my son and his progress/achievements this year. We haven’t done as much homework this year as we should have and this is my fault, not his. He is always eager to read (this we do lots of), and be read to and do homework and extra spellings. I will make homework a priority next year. Thank you for your ongoing support, it really is appreciated and I can’t wait to see even more progress next year.

I was delighted to read all the positive comments about my daughter’s progress over the year. I know she has really enjoyed being in your class and often talks about the exciting activities that she has been doing. I hope her enthusiasm for learning continues into Year 2. Thank you for all the support you have given her, I know she is going to miss you.


Year Two parent comments

A lovely report to read, so pleased to hear how well my son has progressed at school. He has really enjoyed his time at Toftwood Infant School, lovely comments from the staff. Many thanks.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to teaching staff for all the support my son has received in Year 2. I feel he has come on so much this year and has enjoyed his class. His teacher has also given me some great ideas to carry on his learning in the holiday.

A nice report. Our son has enjoyed Year 2 and his time at Toftwood Infant School. We feel he has made great improvements in all areas but especially reading. Thanks to all staff for making his time a fun experience. Looking forward now to Junior school!

We are very proud of our son and all he has achieved this year. He has enjoyed his year and has been inspired by his teacher and the Year 2 team to do well. Thank you for the care, support and encouragement you have given him over the years and during the time he has spent at Toftwood Infant School, it is much appreciated and we hope Elliot’s enthusiasm and determination to do well continues at Junior School.

As always I am very happy with the report. I am really sad that my son is leaving this school, but on the other hand, very thankful that he has had such a good start in his education.

My daughter has really flourished and has discovered the wonderful world of reading! She now reads enthusiastically at home and loves reading new books. She has particularly enjoyed having her homework on display and has worked hard at home to make it good enough.

Thank you for a brilliant year! My son has thoroughly enjoyed it. I can honestly say he never didn’t want to go to school this year which is a credit to you all, because he can be awkward! He has made some lovely friendships this year and I hope they continue. Excellent school with excellent staff.

My son has come on really well this past year. He loves his teacher and all his class friends. He enjoys school so much more and has made some really great progress in everything he does and we are very proud of him.

I’m very pleased with my daughter’s school report and want to thank everyone in the school for the clever little girl she is.

Thank you for this good report on my son. He has enjoyed his time in Year 2 and found many of the topics covered in Year 2 very interesting. I think he will miss Toftwood Infant School.

Toftwood Infant School is superb…thank you to the wonderful team of teachers, office staff & support staff for a fantastic 3 years of education, discipline and fun provided for our daughter, as well as the opportunities I have personally enjoyed when attending outings & events.

Thank you for my son’s report. He has thoroughly enjoyed Year 2 and his progress is noticeable. I am sure he will continue to improve at the Junior school, thank you again.

We are very pleased with our son’s progress this year. He is gradually starting to write things at home and as his writing improves he likes it better. His attitude this year has begun to improve and he is becoming more grown-up. His teacher has had a very positive influence on him.

It was a pleasure to read my daughter’s report and I really don’t feel there is anything to add to such a lovely report. It’s been a pleasure having her infant’s experience finish so well, thank you very much to all concerned.

We are really pleased with our son’s progress this year. He is getting better at concentrating and taking more care over his work. He has really enjoyed the maths and science work he has done this year. He was quite nervous about going up to Junior school, but having spent 3 days there, he now can’t wait! He has absolutely loved his teacher and we thank you and all the other staff from his time at Toftwood Infant School.

I would just like to thank everyone who has helped my daughter with her confidence – she seems much happier with reading and writing. She has loved Year 2 so much!!

Very pleased with my daughter’s progress since being in Toftwood Infant School. I couldn’t have asked for a better report. I am very proud of her and the school.

What a wonderful report! We are so impressed to see our son is achieving so many goals! It is wonderful to learn he is doing so well with his maths. We really appreciate everything you all do for him. Toftwood Infant School has been a fantastic learning environment, with a huge spectrum of learning opportunities. He adores his teacher, we have never seen him come home from school sad or glum. He is always so positive and enthused when he finishes his day. We cannot thank you all enough for the last 3 years. You are a really special school and have brilliant staff! Thank you so much.

My son has enjoyed Year 2 and made good progress. We would like to thank his teacher and all the classroom staff for all the help and support they have given him throughout the year.

I am tremendously pleased with my son’s progress this year. He has become a lot more focussed and really enjoyed telling us all the exciting things he has done throughout the year. Thank you for invaluable teaching skills, you are a wonderful school and he will miss being here immensely.

Fantastic report. My daughter’s teacher has been amazing. She has totally enjoyed being at Toftwood Infant School and is very sad to leave. Thank you for getting to know our little girl and helping her grow.

My son has made fantastic progress from when he started, I’m so proud of him. I couldn’t have done it without all the help from Toftwood Infant School. A big thank you to you all, for the hard work and help.

We are extremely happy with how our daughter has progressed through the school. Her enthusiasm for creative writing and drawing at home only proves how much she enjoys learning. Thank you to everyone for all your hard work.

We are very pleased with our daughter’s progress this year. Sha has thoroughly enjoyed her time at school and we can’t thank you enough for making her last year so enjoyable. She is growing into a confident and mature young girl and has thoroughly enjoyed and taken great pride in the extra responsibilities she has been given this year. It is also pleasing to note that she now has the confidence to ask questions and challenge her peers. Her enthusiasm and love of learning is all down to the hard work and dedication of all the staff and we are extremely grateful for this.

Really impressed and proud of my daughter’s efforts this year! She has thoroughly enjoyed attending Toftwood Infant School, which has given her a fantastic start on schooling. Thank you!

My son has had a fantastic year at school and has progressed as a result of it. He is always enthusiastic about school and always tells us about his day. He always likes to learn and take on responsibilities. His enthusiasm for school is reflected in his 100% attendance for 3 years running as well as always completing his homework. I feel the school has hugely contributed to his confidence and he has got a fantastic educational grounding out of this. All the teachers he has had have been fantastic and he has liked them all. He will be sad to leave Year 2 but he is also extremely excited about Junior school and this excitement is a credit to Toftwood Infant School. Thank you all.

We are incredibly proud of our son’s progress this year. He has put in a lot of effort both at school and at home and we are very proud of him and what he has achieved. His progress and achievement is a result of his hard work and the education and experiences he received from being in his Year 2 class. In our opinion his teacher is excellent – her enthusiasm and care for the children is infectious, and all of the children clearly love the teaching assistant for this class. Toftwood Infant School is very lucky to have two outstanding members of staff – we hope that are both still in post when our younger child comes through the school.

We are extremely proud of our daughter’s report and the progress she is making. We will continue to support her and do the best we can to ensure she builds on her success of this year. She has embraced her school council role and we are proud of her for this also.

Our daughter has really enjoyed herself, learning and being in Year 2. We are really pleased with her report and really proud of how she has progressed

Really pleased how my daughter’s confidence has grown this year. She has loved working with her class teacher and teaching assistant and will miss them both greatly.

I was extremely pleased with my son’s report. It is hard to believe he has completed his three years with you but he has learnt so much and gained in confidence during that time. I am amazed how quickly you taught him to read and his desire to learn has grown over his time at the school. I can honestly say he has never once grumbled about school and if I ever ask him he tells me he loves his school. I did mention to him that it is polite to say ‘good morning’ to the teachers by the door. He replied by saying ‘Oh, I hadn’t realised’. Now, every morning without fail, he will stop and say ‘good morning’! Thank you to all the staff for making his time at Toftwood Infant School so special. I know he has enjoyed every minute and whilst he is looking forward to a new challenge entering the next stage in his schooling, he will miss Toftwood Infant School, as will I with all the friendly, helpful, great staff.

Very pleased with my son’s progress and pleased he comes across as a polite, friendly funny boy. His confidence has come on even more in Year 2.

My daughter has really enjoyed her time at Toftwood Infant School and I am very pleased with the progress she has made. Thank you very much to her class teacher and all the staff. She is going to miss you all!
