"What an inspirational morning with Year 4 Kings Road!

"This year we are in 46 different Year 4 classes and are working with 46 different year 4 teachers. It is against this backdrop that I feel compelled to write this email.

I have just had two truly wonderful mornings in Kings Road with Miss Warrington, Mr. Burdge and the two respective Year 4 classes.

The workshops were an absolute joy to facilitate.

The classes are clearly so well prepared and have such a ‘can do’ attitude.

Both Miss Warrington and Mr. Burdge are exceptionally competent.

Working alongside them over the two mornings has been an inspiration.

We hear (and see) so much about the time constraints and the stresses associated with teaching. I observed patience, genuine interest in each pupil, kindness, and exceptional teaching.

It is very clear that the pupil comes first, that each pupil IS an individual.

We see these things written down as ‘mission statements’ or school mottos… I watched it in action and in truth, over the course of the two mornings…

It was wonderful to work with both Miss Warrington and Mr. Burdge, an honour and an inspiration.

Teaching truly is a vocation and these two staff members from Kings Road school are testament to that."

"Thank you for everything that you have done and continue to do to navigate the school community through these crazy times.

You didn’t sign up for this! You weren’t trained to deal with delivering home learning, whilst juggling your own home life and responsibilities, during a global pandemic.

You are all heroes in my eyes and an inspiration to us all, not just the kids.

I hope you’re feeling proud; I hope you can look back at this time and feel the power of your awesomeness!"

"Thank you for the fantastic support that the staff at Kings Road have given my child during the extended lockdown. My child is loving being back with her classmates and is a different child having benefited from the social interaction and face to face teaching."

"We are so impressed with the competition entry from both your Year 4’s.
The video entry was extremely professionally presented.
The children are confident, articulate and comfortable enough to show personality!
It is so clear that your teachers did a superb job.
The work that they have put into these two classes will have such a positive effect for years to come and these children will only know one way to engage with any audience.
We cannot commend your teachers and your pupils highly enough.
Sincerest congratulations to you, to Rob, to Claire and to Sophie - what a team!"
