Missing everyone in St Mark's, hope you are all doing great in your new classes. I am so sad that I left St Mark's and hopefully I will be back to visit soon.
Jayne Cross (Governor) (05/07/2017 15:37:46)
Just wanted to thank year 5 for letting me accompany them to The Big Bang Science Fair on Tuesday. It was great to see their enthusiasm and interest all the exhibits. I'd also like to congratulate them on their excellent behaviour throughout the day. Two members of the public commented on how well behaved everyone was on the bus.
Well done year 5. You are a great credit to St Marks.
Alicia yr6 (24/05/2017 16:37:58)
SATs are over, Phew! I know this sounds silly but I actually miss them. We've only got a couple of weeks left but I'm ready for the hard work that's coming. I'm going to miss St. Mark's so much but I'm looking forward to my new school.
Amelia Cooper (24/04/2017 16:41:13)
Dearest Year 6 pupils (XD) May I remind you to make every day at St. Mark's count as you have happy and funny moments and you will soon realise that they will become fond memories. My time at St. Mark's was amazing! I hope that yours is too, I just wanted to wish you the best of luck for your SATs (They are so easy but you must study!! If I didn't say this, then I'm sure Mrs Martin and Mrs Ferguson will come for me!). When you leave St. Mark's you will realise that it's no longer a place you visit for 7 hours 5 days a week, it's a memory that you should not let fade away and it is something you will thank in years to come as you will have made mates there and you will have had a amazing education that you will use to do exceedingly well in your SATs! Have fun and good luck . Hope to see some of your faces again soon. Amelia x

I miss St. Mark's so much.
Tony Christy (24/03/2017 09:56:22)
Just had a mooch of the site to see what was going on in my old school. I attended the Infants School from 1969-71 and then the Junior School from 71 finishing in 1974.
As far as I can remember.. teachers were Eddie Lomax, and Miss Delaney in Infants.
Junior School teachers were... Mr Fargher, Miss Riley and Miss Burns (who became Mrs Robertson (or could have been RobINson...) Her husband owned Tuers Garage.
Miss Bailey was the Infant Headmistress and Mr McGuiness was the Headmaster of the Juniors.
Great days.. loved it.
Evie (05/03/2017 11:18:03)
I loved World Book Day! It was so fun to see all the teachers dressed up as well as all of us pupils. I wish we could do this every day.
Lochana SureshKumar (29/01/2017 08:39:52)

caitlin (28/01/2017 12:29:05)
St Mark's is the best school ever!
Mrs Farrell (02/11/2016 19:08:52)
Brilliant evening at the Capstone Theatre watching our fantastic children in their production of A Midsummer Nights Dream. Everyone performed so professionally. So proud of you all- you were amazing. Well done everyone who helped to create and who supported the production. Hard to find the words to say how brilliant you all were.
Lochana :) (20/10/2016 08:17:00)
Hi everyone. It's amazing in Bluecoat. I miss all of the ex year 6's. Bye!

I loved going horse riding with the school. I loved riding Robin and really miss the horses. I would love to go back to the stables again.
Alanya (06/10/2016 03:54:42)
Thank you so much for letting St. Mark's go horse riding because you have made me want to join a club.
Sam Cross (19/09/2016 10:46:57)
I really enjoyed our come and see lesson today in year 6, we were learning about the prodigal son, it was extremely interesting. I also liked the way Mrs Martin taught us so we understood the story.
ceri mcintyre (09/09/2016 17:16:32)
I miss St.Mark's very much, especially all the teachers. I will come and visit soon!

Alicia (24/07/2016 11:31:05)
I'm so sad and so is all of Year 5 because we are not having Mrs Taylor in Year 6 with us. I'm going to miss her even though she's next door it wont be the same.
Alicia the new yr6 (24/07/2016 11:24:31)
I am scared going in to Year 6 because we will have Sat's and we're going to be the oldest children in the school so we have to show the younger children how to behave and we've got to be more responsible.
Vicky Rhead (20/07/2016 17:06:38)
Well done year 6 on a brilliant leavers assembly today. Good luck in your Secondary Schools. I hope they appreciate what a talented group they're getting!
Ella (20/07/2016 13:32:57)
I can't believe tomorrow is my last day in St.Mark's ever! I am so sad to be leaving after nine years of fun. All the staff and teachers throughout the years have been amazing. I have learnt so much and have made many friends. I've had wonderful experiences which I will never forget! Thank you St.Mark's - I'll be back to see you.
Milly Alcock (14/07/2016 15:29:01)
The Champion of Champions was lots of fun. I came second with Alanya, Jessica and Gabby and am happy that we got a silver medal.

It's nice to know that everyone had a great time at PGL and Andy decided to go on our website :) I LOVED PGL, you get to know different skills and make friends and teachers. I love St.Marks and I never want to leave.

Andy! PGL (02/07/2016 14:09:56)
St Marks came to PGL on the 24th June and i was lucky enough to be their group leader. I would to just say a massive thank you to all children and teachers who came along to PGL for making my weekend a brilliant, fun and and most importantly a funny one! Its also very nice to be asked to write in the schools guest book as i can read the comments on here about PGL and knowing a contributed to the children having a such a great time is an incredible feeling and is why i love doing what i do. It was a pleasure meeting all the year 6's as their are some awesome characters and i dont think I'll be forgetting you guys in a hurry! I wish all you guys (children) massive... Massive good luck in the future! I will hopefully see some of the teachers back here again next year when we can do it all over again! ('WATER!!!' - 'MELON!!!')

Rachel McAllister (30/06/2016 09:43:46)
My name is Rachel McAllister and I was one of the very lucky PGCE Primary students that had the pleasure to teach Year 3 a Spanish lesson yesterday.
I would just like to express my gratitude for your hospitality and welcoming us into your wonderful school and enabling us to work with such lovely, diligent and well behaved young children. I spent my last 14 weeks of teaching practice working with Year 3 and cannot stress how much I enjoyed working with St. Mark's pupils even more!
I would like to thank the kind Year 3 class teacher for welcoming us into her class yesterday and allowing us to have fun learning Spanish with her pupils.
I hope in the future I can work in a school as lovely as yours and wish all the pupils and staff of St. mark's Primary School a fun end of term celebration and Summer holiday.
Bethany (28/06/2016 08:57:09)
I loved PGL, it was really fun doing all the activities and trying different things. Mr Harvey and Mr Cushion pushing us all in doing kayaking and raft building was really funny!
Jayne Cross (27/06/2016 17:58:46)
Just wanted to thank year 4 for inviting me to their class mass last Thursday. It was a lovely mass and all the children read and sang beautifully. I also took the opportunity to talk to some of year 4 about school and to have a look at some of the work they've done this year. They were all very proud to show me their work books and talk to me about different stories they had written. Several of them talked about reading and the different opportunities there are in school , the enthusiasm was great.

Congratulations to the school for getting the Reading Quality Mark Gold Award - what an achievement! Well done to everyone involved.
Jayne Cross (27/06/2016 17:36:15)
Just wanted to thank the school for taking year 6 children to PGL this weekend. Thank you to the staff for the regular tweets and photographs which allowed us to follow the children on their adventures. Ella has had an amazing time and can't stop talking about it. I'm sure it is an experience she will remember for a long time. Thanks to all the wonderful teachers who also went, hope you all enjoyed it as much as the children have x
Vicky Rhead (27/06/2016 11:40:22)
Thanks to all the teachers who helped to make the kids' weekend at PGL so good. Erin is home and she hasn't stopped talking! She's clearly had a brilliant time. Thanks to them all, what wonderful Year 6 memories!
Milly Alcock (18/06/2016 16:44:02)
The athletics competition at Wavertree was lots of fun. I am really happy that I am getting a silver medal.
Lochana and Evie (24/05/2016 10:47:57)
We both were watching Mr Beard teach Y1 & Y2 how to move a helicopter in scratch. They all enjoyed it very much.They were all getting the hang of things and now know how to move a sprite. We also learnt how to do some things too! We hope our year get to do computer club.
Evie (23/05/2016 10:31:12)
Hi. Just like to say I loved today as we made crosses in Y5. We were allowed to choose our own group and researched a Saint. I was working with Hollie and Honor and chose ST we all had a great time painting them this afternoon. I hope we can do it again sometime.
Pam Rose (05/05/2016 03:47:24)
Thank you for making me so welcome when I visited your lovely school on 27th April 2016. I had a wonderful morning, seeing exciting lessons where children were really motivated to learn. Everyone was so friendly and the school is a credit to you all.
Thanks again.
Amelia (13/04/2016 14:32:18)
I can't wait for the celebration of St. Mark's 50 year anniversary.The Bake Off is the first thing we'll be doing. I just can't wait!!! At least we will all get to cake at the end, Yum!
Bethany Year 6 (25/03/2016 14:20:52)
I can't believe that half the year has gone already! I Love year 6 and never want to leave, although I am excited for secondary school.
liz (23/03/2016 09:16:13)
Dear Mr Coakley,

What a lovely morning we all had at your school. We would like to thank you, the staff and the children for such a warm welcome. Everyone from the orchestra was so pleased that the Year 4 children were able to join in, sing and play along with us. It was wonderful to see the performance on YouTube. Finally, it was great to see all the children singing, waving and clapping along with all the songs.
On behalf of the Liverpool Ukulele Orchestra, I would like to thank you all for your hospitality and we hope to see you again at your official 50th celebration in the Summer.

Yours sincerely,
Pat Grace
Evie (22/03/2016 12:49:08)
I would just like to say thank you to Vicky Powell for giving me a brilliant experience in the science workshop. I have learnt a lot of new things. I especially enjoyed making a paper helicopter. I love all the activities we have in our school.
High Sheriff of Merseyside (22/03/2016 11:33:52)
I visited St Marks school this morning with my wife. The main purpose of the visit was to judge the Easter Bonnet Competition. Although this might sound like an easy job it was, because of the very high standard of all of the hats, one of the more difficult tasks I have had to tackle.
It was all hugely enjoyable and I was particularly impressed during my subsequent tour of the school by the quality of the work on display and by the pupils themselves, all of whom were polite, interested and enthusiastic. Thank you for making our visit such a pleasure.
With best wishes,
Robert Owen. High Sheriff.
harvey yr4 (10/03/2016 12:47:08)
I have a really nice teacher, wonderful best mates and I enjoy every day of year 4.
isla (04/03/2016 15:48:40)
St. Mark's is the best school.
Mrs Dunbar (03/03/2016 17:34:21)
What a fantastic morning Reception have had at the library for World Book Day. Your enthusiasm and excitement when reading the books alone, or sharing them with friends, was a pleasure to watch. You even found the story 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff' which we have been learning through rhyme and actions. I enjoyed reading the story to you and finding out that it had a different ending to the one we had read in class. Your behaviour was outstanding too - proud teacher alert. Well done!
Mrs Dunbar
kieron (19/02/2016 08:57:31)

Amelia Y6 (03/02/2016 12:08:23)
I love looking at the pictures from years back, it's really fun to see the great memories from years ago, it puts a smile on my face. I DONT EVER WANT TO LEAVE Y6 OR ST. MARK'S, I LOVE IT HERE AND I'D NEVER CHANGE IT. I Can't wait for Summer though. Mr Cushion is my favourite Teacher.
Charlee [yr 6] (21/01/2016 11:36:19)
I had the greatest time today because we went to watch Rapunzel. I loved it and my buddy was Lola from Reception, hope she had a great time as well. xxx

Lois kelly (15/01/2016 10:40:16)
I love this school and I love year five. It is the most amazing school I have ever known. My teacher Miss Doyle and Mrs Taylor are the best teachers who have ever tought me.
Lottie (31/12/2015 10:31:44)

Hi Richard
I just want to thank you for making Rebecca and myself feel so welcome this morning. It was lovely to meet the staff and children of St. Mark's. The children listened so well and really engaged with us, which was wonderful.
Happy Christmas

I loved doing the Christmas play in school. It was the best I had ever performed. I was an angel and her name was Ariel. I had the funniest part. It is the best Christmas play I have ever done. Thank you to all of the teachers that supported us, Mr.Cushion, Mr Harvey, Mrs Martin, Mrs Taylor, Miss Doyle and all the other teachers that came to watch us.

Vicky Rhead (20/11/2015 07:04:39)
Thank you to the staff and pupils for my lovely gifts today. It has been an absolute privilege working with you all on Romeo and Juliet over recent weeks and months.

The pupils have worked hard and deserved every single cheer on Wednesday evening. They did such a fantastic job, I was stopped repeatedly by other teachers, parents and theatre goers to be told how excellent they were. "Professional", "Emotional", "Talented", "Special" and "Wow!" are just a few of the wonderful words used to describe them. Some said it was the best production they had ever seen by young people! The High Schools there thought that you shone and the standing ovation they gave you as you left your dressing room brought a tear to my eye!

That final cheer from the audience, drowning out all the other applause and cheers from the night, as you returned to the stage should be a memory that you treasure forever. Congratulations to every one of you!

A huge thank you to the staff of the school who gave up their time in the rehearsals, half term and evening itself. The support you gave your pupils on a cold, wet, November evening at a theatre miles away was phenomenal! Teachers, Teaching Assistant, Support Staff and Volunteers were all there in force. Thank you!
liz (18/11/2015 23:54:43)
To Children and Staff,
On behalf of Merseyaid, I would like to thank you for all the wonderful shopping you donated to the Syrian people. It will be a great help.

Congratulations to the wonderful actors and actresses who took part in the production of Romeo and Juliet at the Epstein Theatre last night. The show was absolutely amazing. All your hard work certainly paid off! We are all very proud of you all. Thank you to all the teachers who have helped with the months of preparations - without you it couldn't have happened and a massive thank you and congratulations to Mrs Rhead the director who has done an outstanding job. Well done guys x
Mrs Farrell (18/11/2015 13:42:31)
What a fantastic night !! Just got back from the Epstein Theatre. St Marks Years 5 and 6 performed Romeo and Juliet. It was an amazing production. The young actors, dancers and performers were excellent. Such skills and confidence on stage. You should all be very proud of yourselves. Many thanks to all the pupils who took part and many thanks to the staff and director who helped produce such a creative, innovative and professional performance. Well done !!
Honor y5 (14/11/2015 11:13:38)
I love Year Five, it is the best. I can't wait to perform Romeo and Juliet at the Epstein Theatre.

I am happy that I am the girl year 3 school councillor.
liz (21/10/2015 02:30:42)
To the Chair of Governors, St. Mark's.
The celebration of Mass to mark the beginning of the new school year was a most spiritual and engaging occasion. The theme of 'friendship' very relevant to all children. The manner of the teachers quietly in control inspired the children to real involvement in praying and singing. It was a credit to all concerned, creating an atmosphere of quietness so early in the new term, this only comes with preparation and organisation.
Thank you,
Mary Lonsdale
Alicia Harvey (yr5) (03/10/2015 04:56:45)
I love year 5 Miss Doyle always has a warm smile on her face and makes me feel apart of year 5 xxx

I am happy that where going back to school so I can see my friends.
liz (20/07/2015 06:22:00)
To all at St. Mark's,

The past 12 years have gone so fast. We could not have asked for a better Primary School for Alex and Emma, we honestly believe that they have both become the people they are because of all you have done for them both.

We can't believe after Wednesday our St. Mark's days are over, no more Christmas Plays, days at Wavertree track or hoping the weather will be on our side for Sports Day.

Love Paula & Tony Grimsditch
Melanie Smith (06/07/2015 13:31:49)
Fab photographs of PGL!
Milly Alcock (06/07/2015 09:04:07)
I enjoyed our school trip to Gullivers World last week. My favourite ride was the log floom. Miss McMurchie was fun.
Mrs Farrell (04/07/2015 12:17:10)
Looks like everyone really had a wonderful time at PGL. You all showed great courage doing some of the activities on the photos. I love abseiling but not so good on the water. Well done with the rafts and your very brave to sail them on the water !!!!!!
liz (29/06/2015 03:25:54)
I am one of the members of Memory Lane and as you will know your choir has been practising with us for the last few weeks finishing with a performance at the Hollies last Saturday. I am writing to congratulate you on the wonderful children who came to join us. Not only did they sing beautifully but their behaviour was excellent, making it such a pleasure to meet them.
I hope it's not too long before they join us again.
G Leivesley
vicky harris (25/06/2015 10:23:43)
What an amazing bunch St Mark's Junior Choir are! You performed wonderfully on Saturday at the Hollies - the Mayor was moved to tears. You should all feel very proud. Memory Lane have loved working with you all and really hope to see you again soon.
Evie schofield (23/06/2015 10:26:23)
I really enjoyed Saturday!
I enjoyed singing with the members of the Memory Lane Choir. I loved singing with the older people. I hope I can do it again next year!

Hi, I am in year 5 and I have got the best teacher ever. I love this school to bits!
Miss Grochowina (Governor) (18/06/2015 05:27:11)
I had a lovely visit to the school yesterday and wanted to say 'Thanks' to all who made me feel so welcome. Years 1 and 6 were great company while I experienced school dinners! It was lovely to participate in the afternoon with Year 4, and I particularly enjoyed 'Circle Time' - I can see why you all love it so much! Thanks once again and see you all soon!
Lottie (12/05/2015 11:48:59)
I really miss this school. The teachers were lovely. I especially miss swimming because now I have forgotten how to swim. I also miss doing the plays and all the fun activities. I hope to see you again soon.
liz (27/04/2015 03:18:47)
The Mass on Friday to celebrate the Feast of St. Mark was beautifully spiritual. All concerned were totally involved, not easy given the age range of the children. The readers helped us to appreciate the spirit of the words. The singing and gestures were joyful and conveyed joy to all present. I know all this take times, patience and dedication, my thanks to all involved.
Mary Lonsdale
Milly Alcock (23/04/2015 10:18:34)
I liked doing the activities with the army men today. Thank you!
Tom Leyland (30/03/2015 15:12:42)
I had a great time with the pupils from year 4,5 and 6 today. I was talking to them about my experiences working in an ebola treatment centre in Sierra Leone last month.
The children were all very engaged, interested and attentive - they asked some very good questions.

Thank you for having me, it was a pleasure to meet you all!
Amelia (25/03/2015 12:16:33)
I love our school. Miss Doyle said we will be making pen pals with Miss Bests new school, I'm really looking forward to it . I'll never forget you Miss Best.
Leigh Fredson (03/03/2015 00:39:37)
I attended St. Mark's from 1996 to 2004 and I have such lovely memories of the time I spent there.

I still remember all of the teachers who taught me, namely: Mrs Walberg, Mrs Robinson, Mrs Wyatt, Mrs Smith (née Jones), Mrs Doherty, Mr Beard and Mr Coakley. Mrs Gilbertson was headteacher at the time.

I visited St. Mark's a few years ago as part of my job and I was astounded to see that some of the teachers remembered my face and knew my name!
That gives some indication of the dedication of the staff - they still remembered me almost ten years after I'd left.

Thanks to to all at St. Marks for what were probably the best (and easiest!) years of my life.

Leigh
milly alcock (19/02/2015 03:47:28)

Well done to everyone who has taken part in all the christmas performances. I've enjoyed them all and your singing was beautiful. We are lucky to have so many talented young people at St Marks. I'd also like to thank the teachers and school staff for all their hard work especially during the last couple of weeks. The props and costumes used were amazing! I loved the giant cracker. Merry Christmas everyone.

This week we have been drawing pictures with chalk with Miss Doyle. My other favourite was Miss Ferguson's class because we got to remind ourselves of what they did on Christmas day in 1914. It was the only time the Germans and British got to play football and share stuff together.
Erin Rhead (14/11/2014 07:25:12)
Mr Bouvier's lesson this week was very poignant. We wrote letters to soldiers in the war. I felt like I was going to cry it was so emotional. I have had a brilliant week. I wish we could learn like this every day!
Miss Best (24/10/2014 22:12:11)
Miss Doyle and I LOVED your book about the Tower of London! Now we have put it on the wall in the classroom, everyone can have a look at it. Well done, we are always delighted when children do extra work at home!
I'm really pleased to see children enjoying their new classes, what a positive start to the new school year!
Helen Grochowina. (17/10/2014 01:27:41)
Well done to the School Council who interviewed the Governors this week.
We felt very welcome and noted how you all sat and listened very nicely. We look forward to meeting again to hear some of your suggestions.
Bethany Schofield (15/10/2014 07:24:47)
I love this school.All the lessons are fun in year 5. I'm really enjoying the start of this school year.

What a fantastic school! St Mark's is such a welcoming and friendly place. I visited St Mark's back in June 2014 and had a wonderful morning singing and moving with all the children and teachers as we celebrated our Catholic faith. I hope to see you all again soon. Blessings from Australia, John.

Mrs Jackson (08/07/2014 12:38:16)
Well done to all the children who attended Hope University for their graduation ceremony. They all looked very grown up. It was a privilege to watch so many awards being given. Lovely speech's and wonderful work displayed on Elizabethan day. Our children really did look HAPPY !!!
Erin (02/07/2014 12:05:09)
The Elizabethan day was fun. My favourite thing was art and I got to paint the landscape. And it was messy! I also liked the role play in History.
Grace Rhead (02/07/2014 12:02:15)
This is the greatest school ever. All the teachers are very nice. I loved the Elizabethan day. My favourite thing was dancing because it was dancing from way in the past.

As You Like It Drama (01/07/2014 09:25:09)
What a wonderful day we've had celebrating all things Elizabethan! From the athletic talents of year 6 and the beautiful sequence dancing of year 2, to the Shakesperian spells of our mischevious elves and fairies in year 1, the history experts in year 4 and the budding artists of year 3, AYLID Education have enjoyed working with you immensely. It was also lovely to see the Year 6 guides take the lead over the day and their final drama pieces were excellent. Well done to all involved; we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

Congratulations to all the children at St. Marks who made their Confirmation and First Holy Communion at the weekend. You all looked beautiful and handsome! The service was lovely and it was great to see so many teachers there to celebrate with the children.

Tina Griffiths (12/05/2014 00:16:31)
My daughter is in the nursery and has come on leaps and bounds in the last 8 months. I think St Marks is a lovely school with a very personal approach to every child, and would recommend it to anyone, so happy that my little girl will be starting reception in September, and hope every year is as lovely for her as this has been, (I'm sure it will be)
Norman Haddock (29/04/2014 05:26:18)
Just wanted to say that I am SO privileged to be able to come along to St Marks and sing with the children. Every time I step into the school, there is such a warm atmosphere, and absolutely everyone is so very welcoming. The joy I see and feel in there is in the eyes and smiles of everyone. Thank you for making my Tuesday mornings a sheer delight.
Helen Grochowina (28/04/2014 07:32:23)
The St. Mark's Feast Day Mass was lovely with the children's singing and participation. It was really well prepared and a credit to all involved. Felt very uplifted afterwards!
Miss Best (28/04/2014 03:05:14)
I'm delighted to see all these positive comments on the website and the wonderful, fun things you have all been doing at school.
Thank you so much to year 5 for writing to me as I am away on maternity leave. It was so lovely to hear from you all.
I can't wait to come back and see you all soon. I miss St. Mark's lots.
The best of luck to year 6 in the SATS.
Love from Miss Best

Dear Mr Coakley and Ms Ferguson
Many thanks again for the warm welcome to school yesterday morning. It was a delight to support your Y6 children whom you must be very proud of. Their attitudes and application are outstanding. Please pass on my very best wishes in their forthcoming SATs and for their transfer to High School.
Best wishes for the future.
Luke (17/04/2014 10:32:45)
This is the best school ever. Especially when we have our trip to Robin Wood . World book day was EPIC when Miss Greaves was scared that year 6 would eat Toto.

Never want to leave, and I can't wait for Mrs Dunbars baby to arrive. All our teachers are nice and kind.
Mrs Schofield (03/04/2014 10:27:15)
I would just like to say a huge thank you to the year 6 pupils who helped me create a 'St Mark's Zoo'! Your animal antics ensured a superb stimulus for year 1's writing activity......and kept Mr Cushion, Mrs Burke and I thoroughly entertained. (If not wet through- 'Ellie and Izzy elephant'!!!!!!!!!!)
Evie (03/04/2014 08:51:13)

Thank you to Vicky Powell & team for all your hard work. All the beautiful art work produced by the children showed this. Happy Easter ....

Mrs Jackson (17/12/2013 00:16:19)
Just to say "thank you" to all key stage 1 and key stage 2 children and teachers. Your Christmas plays were excellent. The singing, acting, costumes and you all helped me feel the Christmas spirit. You should all be proud....we are.
Ann Farrell (12/12/2013 19:35:44)
Have had the pleasure of watching the Christmas performances and this year they were exceptional. Foundation stage performed brilliantly and sang so well. Key Stage 1 did really well at remembering their lines and Key Stage 2 had everyone wanting to join their Christmas Party. Well done everyone staff and children and especially the solo singers who were great.
Jayne Cross (11/12/2013 00:08:07)

Everyone enjoyed the event and would just like to say a huge thank you to all staff for being so warm and welcoming in the summer break. Special thanks to caretaker who offered excellent support. Thank you all.

Just wanted to say thanks and well done on an excellent induction morning. Your school has a warm, caring feeling and clearly dedicated team. I feel we have made an excellent first choice of school for Lily. I can't say how impressed I am that Miss Connell is taking the time to visit Lily in her nursery before she joins to help her transition. This website is also a credit to the school clear, user friendly with some really engaging content.
Mrs Sellers (17/06/2013 12:04:12)

The new website looks brilliant, I found the parents information section particularly useful. It was also great to see Bethany & Evie on photographs of the activities that they have spoken about at home!
Angelo D'Ambrosio (20/05/2013 10:48:02)
New website looks great, one thing that would be a really helpful addition is to be able to see/ download term dates and the dates of school holidays in the parents area (assuming its not already there and I've missed it!)

School reply:- What a great idea! This information is supplied in the Prospectus, however we will create a new file and upload it under 'Parents Information'. Many thanks for your comments.
Sean everitt (20/05/2013 07:38:59)
Cadin has only been in the school a few months and he loves it, he can not wait to get into school in the morning and he has made some good friends . Cadin has come a long way with his reading as he was only on stage 1 and now he is on stage 3. We are very proud of him.

Definitely will make parents to visit the website often. Good luck.
Jayne Cross and Ella & Sam (10/05/2013 07:32:15)
It is lovely to see photographs of what the children are doing in school - Sam has enjoyed reliving the Halewood triangle outing, and Ella has enjoyed telling me about her plant experiment.
The new website is great, very colourful, eye catching and user friendly, well done all involved.
