Compliments From Stakeholders

 'Just to say how well supported my child felt during the lockdown. The school left no doubt that all actions were taken with the intention of making the school safe and continuing to keep the children safe.
 
Google classroom worked well, it was nice that all work was set for the week as children knew the expectation and google meets was great for my child's emotional wellbeing, he looked forward to being able to interact with his classmates and the tt rockstars tournament went down well.
With regards to provision, I could not have asked for more. The school have done an amazing job of delivering a quality provision which I would not have been able to do my job without. 
Thank you to everyone, your commitment has been second to none'.

 'Annalise is loving all these live sessions, thanks so much for organising them.  They are making a massive difference to her motivation for home-schooling. 

  When the call last week cut off at 45 minutes she told me it only felt like she was on the call for 10 minutes, which is definitely not how she feels about my lessons.'

Thank you to Mrs Bundy for printing out the VSB over the last few months it has been a great help during this time!

Year 3 Parent.

'I am really glad that you have asked for our feedback so that I can say a HUGE thank you for all your hard work this term. You have absolutely smashed it!
Gabriella has loved the live lessons each day and the interaction with you all has really made this lockdown so much easier. The volume of work has been absolutely perfect and the tasks have been varied and engaging. I often listen in to the live lessons so that I can help Gabriella with the work afterwards. I have been so impressed with the content and the way everything is explained in such a relaxed and friendly way. I realise now why my way of trying to teach Gabs does not work. Having said that, I can't replicate the way you all do it so hats off to you. You make it look easy!  
I have spoken to lots of friends who have children in other schools and I am so grateful and I feel very lucky that we have had amazing support from you all. You haven't just helped the kids through this really strange time but you have supported the parents too. The Storey family are very grateful for all your hard work!  ~ Thanks again.'

'Just wanted to say, thank you for all that you and your staff have done to keep the school open. I can only imagine the juggling required to ensure the children in school are safe and learning whilst coping with the logistics of teaching the children online at home.

Ellie has had such a good term, and I feel very grateful that she has been able to attend school, particularly as it is her final year at the Haven. Please pass on my thanks to Mr Boyd and the other Year 6 teachers too'.

'Amazing way to be in touch with kids via google classroom, this way you all helped children in a way I couldn’t help at all. I’m very pleased to say thank you very much for all your hard work.  And just want to mention Mr Boyd , such a nice and funny teacher Lukasz loves he’s teaching'.

Year 6 Parent

'My youngest loves hearing his teachers' voices and seeing them on video.  As a parent, I really appreciate the time the teachers have taken on preparing clear lessons with step-by-step instructions.
Also, the feedback has been amazing - he just uploads his work to Purple Mash and within an hour he has personalised feedback.  
Thank you to all the Year 2 staff, also for their daily story time videos - we really enjoy watching these together.
 
You have just got better and better throughout this lockdown - thanks again'.

'We appreciate all the hard work the staff are doing and understand that teachers are teaching in school a lot so live lessons can't be taught.'

'I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff both online and behind the scenes,  The Haven School I feel have been amazing.

Not gonna lie, sometimes challenging to get Lewis to focus but once set up and ready he's pretty much part of the group.
 
We have joined in Google Classroom every day and they have really helped, long may they continue until possible to return.'
