Testimonials

We thought you’d like to hear what our parents, visitors and other stakeholders say about our school.

“Please can you pass my thanks on to all the staff involved in the story telling evening.  The boys thoroughly enjoyed the evening and I really appreciate the extra time and effort the staff have put in and appreciate that their evening was also used up for the event.”

“Dear Mrs Swann, I wanted to write to thank  Mrs Beaven and everyone involved for a wonderful world book day yesterday.  It was lovely to be invited into school to see the lovely costumes and share all of the activities which the children enjoyed. As a family we also enjoyed the Indian story telling evening. I appreciate the work that went into it and that the teachers gave up their evening to be there and run it.”

“Thank you for a wonderful story telling evening. My child has been talking about the stories today .”

“Congratulations on your good Ofsted report. It is a great tribute to you and your staff in achieving this accolade. On my visits to the school the children are always polite, well behaved and appear happy.”

“It has been a privilege for both my children to attend Benington Primary School all these years and I know their last day will be an incredibly emotional time. We will always be grateful for the school’s nurturing environment and high educational standards and especially for the support [my child] has received over the last 6+ years. I cannot thank you and your staff enough and wish you all the best for the future.”

“(My son) has never been very confident with maths, and last night it was wonderful to see him so enthusiastic and confident when telling me about the work he has been doing in the class. I think these classes are doing him a great deal of good and it’s great to see the school supporting his learning in this way.”

“We are very excited for [our daughter] to join in September and have to say, of all of the schools which we have viewed, Benington absolutely blew us away.  The quiet and respectful manner of the children really shone through and the real care that the teachers have for the school and pupils seems clear for all to see.”

“I can’t express how happy myself and my husband have been with the girls development over the last few years since starting at the school and how happy and confident they have become. The teaching standards at Benington are outstanding.”

“We would like to take the time to acknowledge our gratitude for the progress, both educationally and emotionally that (our children) have made whilst at Benington School. We do believe that the ‘individual and tailored’ approach has provided them with a solid foundation for moving forward confidently.” 

“We just wanted to drop a quick line of gratitude for taking the time to facilitate the visit of your school this morning. We were extremely impressed with the facilities and the passion you displayed about the education and developments of your pupils. I’m sure our children would thrive at your school, your team and your enthusiasm are a real credit to your values and beliefs.”

“I just wanted to send an email to say how proud I was of all the children that attended the inter-village sports event on Tuesday. Watching how well the children supported each other reminded me why I picked Benington school for my children.”

“We are impressed with the effort the school makes to involve the parents for the benefit of their children.”

“We would like to thank you and all the staff for giving our boys a fantastic start to their education. You have created such a supportive environment at Benington which we will miss very much.”
