What You Say About Us

************************************************************************************************

I just wanted to take the opportunity to say how impressed we have been with our daughter's development and growth over the past year under Mrs Smith and Mr Segun's guidance.  It's been wonderful to see our daughter's confidence grow, she has changed so much in her development and appears more confident with her speech and reading, something we were worried about when she started school due to her speech delay.  She has always been happy to go to school and has always been collected with a smile on her face.  We have felt we could always approach Mrs Smith with any concerns and always felt listened to.  I truly feel that Mrs Smith and Mr Segun were the right teachers at this point in her development to help her flourish as an individual.  I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you as from my job as a therapist I am aware of how important these times are in a child's life in creating their belief systems and I can honestly say that our daughter has been well looked after and has been taught well, which is reassuring as a parent.

As our daughter's journey at Shirley Infants comes to an end my husband and I really wanted to take the time to write to thank you and your wonderful team for all that you have done to make her experience at Infants such a positive one. 

When she started three years ago, we felt terribly anxious about our 'little girl' going off to school, no matter how ready we knew she was!  Your team have nurtured and cultivated her love of learning and we are so grateful for that.  She has had so many opportunities over the past three years from well organised trips, after school clubs, time at Upper Shirley High for PE, to choir.  We especially wanted to thank Mrs Miranda Clarke.  What she does with the children, the passion in music that she ignites is magical.  The JET proms, the taster 'Ladybird' sessions, the assemblies and all of the Christmas performances have been outstanding and we can't wait to see more with our younger daughter.

Our daughter loves school, there hasn't been one day when she hasn't been excited to come and learn something new.  The staff, Miss Miller, Mrs Mew & Miss Reilly accompanied by the amazing Mrs Saville, Mrs Powell & Mrs Dunford, who have invested in her have made such a positive and lasting impression.  Their enthusiasm and passion for what they do has certainly given her a 'thirst' for knowledge and is absolutely apparent during Parents Evening discussions on her progress (so much so she wants to one day teach at Shirley Infants!).

Personally as parents we would like to thank you and your fantastic senior leadership team, especially the Head of School.  We really appreciate the time she gave us at the start of this academic year when we had some concerns.  Shirley Infants is a special place.  The ethos and learning environment you have created is unique and won't be found elsewhere.  We also want to say thanks to the office team, the moment you arrive at reception you are met with the most wonderful individuals who have always reassured us that our child is valued and safe and, incredilbly, always remember who we are parents of!

Please pass on to your wonderful team how appreciative we are for all that you do.  We know how hard you work and thank you again for helping our daughter blossom.
