Comments from parents/carers

‘Since my child has started back to school I have seen her develop and grow. She has moved up to a higher level. The school supports us with homework for her. We know what she’s doing, and when she’s meant to do it. We couldn’t ask for more from the school.’

‘I am very pleased with the school, especially the nursery green class. All staff are wonderful and I hope my child does get a seat in reception. She is really enjoying her time and I have noticed changes in her learning and behaviour. Thank you very much from me and my family for giving her such a wonderful experience.’

‘I spent a hugely enjoyable hour yesterday evening at St Leonard’s Church, Shoreditch, listening to a fantastic concert given by, amongst others from the area, some Old Ford pupils; members of the Globe Town Voices and Whitechapel Voices Choir. I was wearing both my hats: one a proud beaming parent and one of gimlet-eyed governor.

It was inspiring to watch and listen to the enthusiasm, involvement and enjoyment displayed by all the children from our local community. As an ex-singer I can attest to the hard work and dedication that it takes to put on such a performance, and not just by the performers.

So I would like to thank the members of Old Ford staff who have put their own time and much effort into organising this, into escorting the pupils safely to their choir practices and back, and commend them for their dancing at the back of the church.’
