I wanted to write to thank you for the amazing time I have had at Stanford Primary School. The opportunities have been astounding - the best activities and opportunities in any school! From PGL to having people from Africa doing their native dances, having Caribbean people show us how to play the steel drums, doing sweet shack and representing the school in various sport competitions. I have enjoyed every moment of my time at Stanford. I would like to thank every single one of you. Even though this year we have had the coronavirus outbreak and missed things such as SATS, end of year Production and going to Fairford Airshow if it wasn’t for corona virus we would of done those things thanks to you, your amazing ideas light fires in our hearts and keep them going, things that we would of never done without you. It is this primary school that has made me who I am, from the staff and teachers and friends and visitors everyone has made my Stanford primary experience as good as possible. Also amazing things that we support, like charities such as the Christmas Shoe Box Appeal. You have prepared me so well to go to secondary school. At the start of school it was settling in for a few years and then before you know it you’re getting ready to go to secondary. I will miss all the smiley faces when I come in to school; all the friendly faces that I know oh so well.
Thank you for all that you do - every day, every lesson, every moment. This has, without a doubt, been the most emotionally challenging time to work in schools, yet everyday you turn up and greet the children with a cheerful smile. You do so much to ensure that, not only are our children safe, but also that they are forming a love of learning and not missing out on their essential education. Thank you for always going above and beyond.
We would like to offer our very sincere thanks for all the hard work and support you have given not just our daughter, but us as a family. Please never doubt your skills and abilities to mentor and develop children to be the best that they can be, because without you, there would be no future for our children, continue to believe in yourselves, for you are "Teachers."
As a parent, I am so very grateful for the safe, stimulating and fun environment you have managed to provide for our son in the most challenging of circumstances. Your commitment to the emotional and physical well-being of the children is second to none, and you continue to provide new and interesting experiences for the children despite all the restrictions and challenges in place. As a member of the Stanford community, I also want to thank you for taking extra special care of those more vulnerable young members of our village. I know you have gone above and beyond to ensure they are as supported as possible. That is the mark of a really special school at the heart of the community, and we are so very lucky and proud to have such a school in our village. You are all truly wonderful and Stanford School, without doubt, has helped us stay afloat as a family during this difficult time. Please know how much we value every one of you and all you do. As I put in the title of this email - thank you is not enough...!
Thank you for 10 years of guidance, taking our boys through Primary School, giving them confidence in learning, sport and standing up in front of people to perform in choirs, nativities, Stanford's Got Talent and of course, the Leavers' Play. There is no doubt whatsoever that Stanford in the Vale Primary builds an exceptionally strong foundation for Secondary School as not only our boys can testify but it is more than obvious when visiting FCC, how many Stanford in the Vale alumni are prominent in Sports and Academic achievements. Thank you for very special memories and happy times.
You have been amazing throughout these uncertain and challenging times. I am so proud of you and really appreciate all your hard work, dedication and commitment in providing ongoing care and education for the children and families in Stanford.
Thanks for all you've done for our daughter over the years. The teachers have been amazing and she's grown so much in confidence and ability. We are really going to miss being a part of Stanford School.
We really cannot thank you enough for all of the hard work you do to keep the children happy, safe and educated, always and especially through this difficult year! We really feel so blessed our children get to attend such a wonderful school thanks to an incredible Headteacher and the most amazing staff!
Thank you for all that you have done for our son during his time at Stanford. He has so many challenges to overcome but all the staff and children have shown so much care and compassion, it will be hard to match in another school. We shall always remember and be grateful for such a nurturing and inclusive start to his young life.
Thank you for all that you do and sacrifice for the school and children. Our children have all had their best primary school experience here, they have all grown so much and will have amazing memories to look back on. Each of our children have also been able to pursue their different interests for which we are truly grateful.
We just wanted to write a quick thank you for all that your wonderful school has done for our son. He truly enjoys everyday and is flourishing, both academically and socially. He now has a good group of friends and is living the life that we hoped he would have. We love that the children are so happy playing together irrespective of school years. My impression of the school is that you start from the viewpoint of what would the children like and then how do you make it happen? The ice rink, the water fight, the opportunity to do the radio at lunchtime and all the visiting music groups you have, make the school so fun!
I want to say a huge thank you to the team in Foundation Class, they have given my son a great start, helped in so many ways and I know his transition to school worked so well because of the imaginative and kind approach they employ. They will be missed when he moves on! Thank you'
