Parent Feedback

Here is a selection of the latest feedback we have received. 



Dear Birdham School and Staff,

I  am writing to express my heartfelt gratitude for the exceptional support extended to my son, during his half a year at Birdham School. 

The warm welcome and kind atmosphere provided by the teachers, students, and the entire school community have greatly eased his transition and integration into a new environment. 

 Being displaced from our familiar surroundings as a result of the war has been an immensely difficult experience for our family. However, your school has played a vital role in helping us find healing and stability. The nurturing environment you have created has not only assisted my son academically but also aided in his emotional healing process.

The dedication, creativity, kindness and endless patience of Miss Newman gone above and beyond to ensure that he feels welcomed and growing both academically and emotionally.

The strong sense of community at Birdham school is commendable. The various events, extracurricular activities, and cultural celebrations organized by the school are amazing.

We are eternally grateful for the positive impact you have had on our lives and feel like we joined one big friendly family.

We just wanted to say an enormous THANK YOU for everything you have done for our son and daughter this year.  Not just the teacher stuff, although that has also been amazing, but all the extra stuff from organising incredible days of super fun activities to all the love and support you’ve given our son, especially. 

 For my husband and I to know that we have such an awesome champion in you is more than we could have hoped for.  He goes into school with a smile on his face and is doing brilliantly, and that’s all down to you Mrs Ellis and your love and passion for teaching

The school has bowled me over with just how much goes on and so many wonderful things happening all the time for the children to look forward to and experience, from party down the drive, den building outside, farm trips, watercolour art, mosaic pictures and wonderful after school clubs to name just some. From the bottom of my heart I cannot thank you all enough. We are totally blessed beyond measure.

To each and every one of you, you are appreciated

I can not say how thankful I am for all your school has done for my son after he joined you last term.  I had no idea how much he could change, his personality is just shining through.  He has become more confident, loves coming to school and that’s all down to you!

Year 2 parent Jun-23

I am so pleased, you have really got the measure of my son.  When you look at how he was when he first started, you have worked miracles.

Year 3 parent, May-23

Our child has been a different boy since joining your school, he is back to how he used to be since joining your school.

He can’t wait to get into school in the morning!

We can’t thank you enough for making him and us as a family feel so welcome.

I just wanted to say how fantastic it was to see and hear about all the amazing learning that took place this week with the extra curricular activities surrounding Thomas the Gorilla and the use of the green screen.

The feedback I've had from both my children has been so amazing to listen to. 

They have loved all the engagement and cross curricular participation that has been going on and I'm constantly impressed by the all the additional learning that the kids do at school.
