Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour.

We will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect and when.

"Thank you all so much for keeping school a calm place for our children. Again, the school have shown incredible coping skills and have made this very scary and unknown time much easier for both us and the children."

"Dear Mr Horner and all the team at School
Just a quick note to say thank you and well done for the brilliant way in which you have kept us all informed throughout these strange and trying times, and for keeping the children’s spirits up under the most difficult circumstances. I hope the government can find a way to thank and reward everyone who works in the public sector once this is all over."

"I just wanted to say, you have all been amazing turning up for work, taking each day as it comes and I thank you for all your team’s commitment towards our children's care and learning. I know …… will really miss school and I just hope I can keep her as challenged as you guys and continue her love for learning."

"Thank you also for all your amazing support and updates. We wish that you keep safe and well throughout this extraordinary and challenging time."

"We want to thank you, Mrs Leonard, Miss Crockett and the other teaching/support staff for the outstanding effort you all put into teaching our children every day.
I just wanted to send a message of thanks and appreciation for your hard work over recent weeks, looking through the packs sent home today, it’s incredibly reassuring that we will be able to keep as much structure as possible for …….., I can’t imagine how much effort had to go into putting them together with very little time. You are all doing an amazing job to keep our little ones from feeling the uncertainty that is around us and I think I can speak on behalf of all parents to say we appreciate your efforts massively."

"Just to say thank you to your staff for keeping the school open and helping the emergency services to carry on working."

"We've had a very productive first day. Lots of different activities and the day flew by. The kids even said they enjoyed it!
I, however, am exhausted. How do you do it??!!!
Also a big thanks to you all for the teaching material, it would be a lot harder without it."

"Thank you so much for the home learning timetable. You are all amazing! The class story was one of the things that ... and ... were upset about. AWESOME."

"I just wanted to say thank you for all of the work that everyone put into the homework sheets and books that came home.
... has been following this week and they have given our days real structure as well as being fun & educational for him. I was really worried about how this week would go and it has taken away all of the stress. Please pass on my thanks to Miss Claridge."

"Thank you so much for the lesson plan and resources, really appreciate the help about what to focus on. Amazing you were able to pull all that together so quickly - thank you."

"Can I just say that ... had the most wonderful time at school today. Thanks so much to everyone for making the day as fun as possible at this weird time. Only problem now is that he wants to come every day!! Big thanks to Jack too."

"This week I finished Platinum level speed tables and really impressed my mum with the amount of certificates I earned this week. We do P.E. with Joe Wicks every morning at 9am and a P.E lesson in a nearby playing field on Tuesday and Thursday. We are enjoying listening to you read Pig Heart Boy. Thank you. I MISS SCHOOL! I hope I see you again soon."

"I just want to say what a brilliant job you are all doing in providing the timetables and supporting resources for homeschooling. ... and I spend an hour on Sundays setting ourselves out for the week with the lesson plan so he can just pick up the relevant days folder and crack on.
I think the lessons are short and succinct enough for their age and even allow.for parents to add some additional learning resources in if they wish."

"I feel you are just at the end of the phone or email if we were struggling and that means a lot when I can't imagine how difficult it is your end too. The messages of support help as well knowing we don't need to put ourselves under any pressure.
Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you and that I think it is really working well."

"Thanks so much for the kind messages you send ... in these emails. They mean so much to her as she thinks such a lot of you. She is very excited about seeing you tomorrow in the Zoom call. I think it is important to maintain the teacher student relationship even if they do not return to school. You have done so much for them all, especially throughout this period so thank you."

"It seems Chesterton has gone above and beyond with the materials you are sending each week, which has helped massively and, although we aren’t strictly following the timetable, we have everything we need to keep teaching our children. I have to say it is tough but I am enjoying it so very much, my two are content and settled but they wouldn’t be without the continued support from all of you."

"Along with all the parents I’m sure, I’m deeply grateful for you going to this effort to keep these special little celebrations going. Thank you."

"I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making today so special. ... will always remember this and I thought you did so well."

"Oh it was so lovely, a memorable day for all of us. It’s a great privilege us parents don’t usually get, to listen in to the teachers in "classroom action". They are so encouraging, supportive and clearly fond of the children."

"Thank you very, very much for the recordings that you upload, we love seeing them. I meant to email you on Friday to say thank you especially as …….. was over the moon to be awarded a certificate, she watched the video again and again! We also really appreciate being kept up to date so efficiently with both news on progress and plans of reopening and also the lovely newsletters from Miss Phillips, thank you to you both."

"On a separate note, thank you to you and all members of staff for your continued support throughout these very strange times. The Zoom calls, the emails, the tailored weekly rotas. Chesterton School have gone above and beyond, the amount of effort all have put in to make sure our children are still getting an education and the extra resources that have been made available... I could go on and on. We are extremely grateful and think the way you have handled this is just superb. So thank you again."

"First of all I would like you say thank you to you and all the teachers for all their hard work during this difficult time, it was very reassuring seeing the teacher out pointing the children in the right direction this week, especially as ... can be a very anxious child and does not always cope very well with change and I know he was very worried about knowing where to go on Tuesday so again thank you and well done to all."

"I just wanted to drop this in to say a massive thank you to everyone, not just for this year, but also for your amazing hard work during this pandemic. The obvious hard work made by all staff for keeping our children safe and the home-friendly schoolwork set has been outstanding. ...’s confidence being back to school gave me the reassurance I needed to know I made the right decision."

"I just want to say how incredibly grateful we are to Chesterton for all you have done for our girls and the amazing start to school life you have provided them with. All of the staff have been so nurturing and supportive and given them such personal care and growth - we couldn't have picked a better school for them to start their education if we tried. A huge thank you to the full team and we know the girls will miss you all a lot."
