Our previous parents of new starters had these comments about the first few days of transition into school:
“I feel that Grenoside Primary has done an exceptional job in providing a normal environment for the children to learn in and for keeping them as safe as possible and I am so grateful for this”
“we also would like to say what an amazing job you have done with the children and parents in such a confusing time, thanks for all your efforts”
“We have been very happy with the transition process for EYFS. Our child has settled into school life extremely well.”
“The encouragement and support from all the FS team has been incredible and is greatly appreciated”
“ Our child has settled into school life extremely well. All EYFS staff have been very friendly, happy and approachable”
“she’s non the wiser school isn’t the ‘norm’ at the moment, nor am I as a first time school parent- which I must be thankful for! Keep up the good work”
