Contacts from parents

'X is lucky to have been taught by so many wonderful, dedicated teachers during her time at Wilberfoss, teachers who take an interest in the child as an individual as well as their numeracy or literacy results, which I understand are also important.

I wanted to share my gratitude with you and hope that she understands how much we appreciate teachers going the extra mile for our kids.' Parent email


 'I want to express my thanks to all the wonderful members of staff who go above and beyond, listen to parents' views and implement positive measures as a result. I would be grateful if you could pass on my thanks and share with the deputy/assistant heads as appropriate so that the efforts of the aforementioned teaching staff team members does not go unrecognised.' Parent email

Parent Questionnaire

'We are encouraged by recent changes made by the leadership team resulting in a greater degree of transparency, open communication involving parents and welcoming feedback regarding the school’s policies and processes etc. The open mornings have been a great success and we are loving the range of activities on offer meaning there is something for everyone! The team of staff are super friendly, hardworking, supportive and approachable. It is evident they seek the best for their students and support them to help them achieve and to be happy at school. As a mother to a child with SEN, I’m so grateful for the support we have received where teachers are fighting for my child to reach their potential. At the other end of the scale my daughter who has always excelled has had teachers who have adapted work to challenge her and to bring her on, whilst also recognising her mental well-being is of equal importance. Both my children love coming to school and that speaks volumes. Well done and thank you!'' Parent

 'I am really impressed so far. The EYFS team are absolutely amazing. Mr Henderson is a fantastic asset to the school and I am in awe of his philosophy to teaching and the way he has brought it to life in the school. The achievement assembly we attended when my daughter was given an Always Child award was fantastic and so rewarding to witness. Thank you.' Parent

'I have always found the school to be a warm, welcoming place with a true family feel about it. The staff are very approachable and know our child inside out. He loves to come to school and feels happy and safe. The selection of extra-curricular clubs is vast and our child particularly enjoys getting involved with any sporting events. I would just like to take this opportunity to thank all staff members who have played an important part in our child’s education so far.' Parent
