Your Kind Letters

Your Kind Letters

We have been overwhelmed by the kind words we have received throughout the year. We wanted to share these with you.

Letters to the School

Today was such a huge achievement for my daughter.  I am so proud of her and what she accomplished today. She has been so nervous about it and today she absolutely smashed it. I just wanted to thank you both for all the encouragement and all that you have done. 

Dear Everyone at Polegate School,
Thank you so much for all the help and support everyone has given me. I am so grateful I was placed at Polegate, it is a fantastic school with very polite students and a lovely team of staff. I have been made to feel so welcome and I have learnt so much during my time here.

Dear All at Polegate School,
Just a quick line to thank you all so much for making me so welcome during my time here in school. I truly couldn’t have wished for a more inspiring first placement – the staff have been so friendly and supportive and the children a joy to work with. I have learnt so much here, so thank you again.

Dear Polegate School,
I just felt I had to drop you a line to commend the school on the Year 5 YouTube channel for Hindleap! What a fantastic idea – and I know everyone is enjoying watching the videos.
I’m missing Alfie lots and I haven’t even spotted him in any of the pictures or videos yet but just seeing how much support and encouragement they are all showing to each other during the activities has filled me with so much pride! (I even had a little tear!) What a lovely year group! I can’t wait to hear all his stories – you can’t put a price on what they gain from such experiences.

Thanks again

We are both very happy with my daughter’s progress at school. She has settled into Year 1 perfectly and loves coming to school now. She often says how much she likes her teacher and she feels happier with her friends. Her reading has improved well and she often reads to herself at breakfast. She loves to draw, write and colour at home.
I would like to thank the teacher for all the hard work – you have made a big difference to my daughter in such a short time.

My daughter has settled in very well in year one. She loves her teacher and loves being at school. She is happy to tell me what she has done at school. Overall I am very happy with my daughter’s progress so far.

You might find interesting the fact that Polegate’s response to my daughter’s bullying was amongst the best compared to the experience of other parents…. in both independent and state schools. An experienced child/adolescent psychologist chaired the parents session, and he also commented that he felt our school had responded very well.

Just a quick line to say thank you for taking my son into his class this morning. What a wonderful way for him to start the day. We understand how busy you are and it is a credit to you that you take the time to do small things like this. These small gestures are what set you apart from others and show you genuinely care about the school and pupils. Even my wife came home with a big smile on her face so pleased that Finlay had gone into school so happy.

My son has been working hard and I am very pleased with the progress he is making in year 4. He has done very well to become a member of the School Council. He takes this role seriously and is very proud, as am I.
I have noticed a fantastic improvement in his handwriting. I know that this is an area that he has found tricky, but his efforts have paid off and he is now presenting his work beautifully. Both Karate and the Secret Book Club are groups that Jerome has joined and is enjoying them very much. I am very pleased he is at such a wonderful school.

My daughter has had another very enjoyable term and has really enjoyed the WW2 topic. She really likes her teacher and the way he explains things. We are thoroughly impressed with the dedication and professionalism of the staff at Polegate School.

I am continually impressed by the commitment of your team to ensure that the potential is maximised in all pupils and that they continue to progress even when “target levels” have been attained. It must take considerable energy to maintain enthusiasm across the spectrum of ability.

I would like to say that I really enjoyed being a cabin boy for the day. It was great fun to dress up with my friends. The day was great because we did lots of activities. My favourite was sleeping in the hammocks and scrubbing the decks. I just wanted to say thank you for making it so much fun for us.
I just wanted to thank you and your staff for another great year at Polegate School. My son has been with Miss Franks and I think she is a truly wonderful teacher – so kind and very approachable. I sometimes help out and I know the class love her. Also I thought Olympic week was good fun as was the swimming gala.
Congratulations on your first year as head.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend today, but I have seen a few clips from other parents, which has left me in tears.  The theme made it extra touching and special for both my daughter and myself. 

Once again thank you for helping her grow into an amazing person.

I just wanted to thank you all for making SATS week a success. I know all children handle stress and view stress differently and my son has a high tolerance but he didn't bat an eyelid. I know it was a success because when I asked him how the day went he always replied first with how many sausages, bits of bacon and brioche he had managed to eat in the morning! So he was winning in life. I think his record was 6 sausages, two bacon and two brioche in one sitting!

 It was great meeting you on Friday, and I must say that it has been a long time since I met such well-behaved, enthusiastic -and very knowledgeable Reception children! They knew what "Nocturnal and Hibernation" meant, and one little boy even knew that baby Hedgehogs were called "Hoglets" - which is amazing considering his age!  It was a privilege to visit Polegate Primary!

Hi everyone,

I’d just like to thank all involved for this years year 5 trip to Hindleap.

My daughter has come home and loved telling me all about the activities, she’s had the best time and made such special memories with her friends.

She explained all the teachers/ helpers were in her words GREAT!

Thank you again, enjoy a nice glass of something this evening.
