We regularly send out questionnaires for feedback and suggestions for policies, events, initiatives, ideas, how to spend fundraising.. Here are some of the comments we have received on questionnaires and in letters/e-mails:
'My son loves school.. he tells me all about the fantastic things he has been doing and loves the rewards and great teaching..'
' I have had all 3 of my children go through the nursery and infant school. I've been very happy with how they have been taught and looked after. I would strongly recommend anyone to go to this school'
'I am extremely pleased with the school and my child's progress - very happy parent!'
'My daughter.. has always been very happy and loves going to school. The staff I have had contact with have always been very friendly and helpful both in the school and the office.. I can clearly see that she is progressing and learning which is testimony to how the staff interacts with the children'
'The 'out of classroom' experiences really enhance my child's learning'
'I am really pleased at her progress and how it is recognised by the teachers. She is really happy at school, and is always buzzing when she comes home about what she has done that day. It's lovely to see her being creative, writing, and understanding what she has learnt - thank you!'
'The only time our son has been unhappy was due to an older child. We just want to say a huge thank you to Mrs Baillie for dealing with the situation so well and efficiently... he has been our happy little boy again!'
'We are quite astonished at how we have seen our son's confidence grow during his time at KINS.. We feel he has really flourished under the guidance of all of his teachers.. We cannot praise you all highly enough for the positive environment and culture you have created.. that will benefit him for the rest of his life'
'Polite, welcoming staff - easy to approach with concerns and comments. Newsletters given out regularly to keep parents/carers updated. Text message service is good and useful'
'We wanted to express our huge appreciation for the work that the school has done with our son in relation to his writing.. the difference the physical literacy sessions have made has been amazing.. He has enthusiasm now when we ask him to write that we have never seen before.. Things like this remind us why we chose to send our son to this lovely school, and speaks volumes about the care and commitment the teaching and support staff have for the children'
'We think the school is outstanding and our son has loved his time with you in every year.. KINS has brought out the best in him, and he has gained confidence in so many different ways.. and seems to thrive in the classroom environment whilst still loving all the extra activities, theme days.. The staff all make a real effort to get to know the children and the pupils come first in all the school does - we think this is brilliant.. You and your team work so hard and the children all seem to love school and thrive in it's care'
'My son loves the school and all of the staff! I am also really grateful for all the extra work, time and effort that his teachers and TAs put into his education. Thank you and thank you to the Head teacher for all your hard work in running an excellent school!'
