What Do Our Parents Say?

Updated April 2017

Our most recent Ofsted questionnaire results are in following an excellent (and improved!) response rate. You can see the latest statistics by following this link, needless to say the staff team, led by Mr Baker are absolutely delighted! As always, thank you for your feedback, your support, encouragement and your challenge have helped shape development plans and ensure we are providing a first class education for your children.

February 2017… So what did our community say?

“Our children are so happy and absolutely thriving, we know this is because of the supportive but also challenging learning environment created”

“It always feels like the teachers and TAs are working together as a team and we are warmly received every morning feeling that we are leaving our children in safe hands”

“We are so appreciative of the school’s support and quick response”

‘However you are teaching the children, I see such positive outcomes. Thank you”

“The difference in our children is simply amazing, and credit must go to your fabulous team” 

“… was so proud on the last day of term to tell us she had performed a dance in front of other students.  I’ve never seen a child come home with a bigger smile, ‘I did it Mummy, I really did it!’  For her, to do the things you’ve allowed her to do is such a HUGE achievement”

“You’ve allowed our children you’ve taken away the unnecessary pressures but given them knowledge to complete the work that is expected”

“You’ve given them experiences they could only dream of, and the confidence to achieve things they never thought was possible”

”… such wonderful teachers, they make learning exciting”

“Gulval is an outstanding school, and I truly believe that is down to the hearts of everybody that is involved in its development”

“We are incredibly happy, our son is feeling positive and encouraged to do, and think more than ever with her kind and supportive guidance”

“Such a supportive, nurturing and fun school. I appreciate all your efforts and think you have struck the right balance between being an educational place, an extended family type place, and an opportunity to explore and widen the horizons”

Absolutely over the moon with Gulval School. Incredibly nurturing with a sense of family values. All staff (and parents) are friendly and focussed on community. Very pleased with our children’s enthusiasm for learning. Even the 3 year old can’t wait to start!

“We appreciate the way the school as a whole really recognises and values different strengths, this is so important”

“Great school and a lot of happy students!”

“I cannot fault Gulval School. From teachers, parents, children, the environment and support staff, all are supportive and positive. It’s a great school all round!”
