Message from parent to Ofsted January 2021

"I'd like to take a moment of your time to give a special mention to the amazing staff at Stoke Mandeville Combined School in Buckinghamshire.

As a parent of two children, who are/have attended Stoke Mandeville combined since 2011, I have always been impressed with school. In particular though, throughout the last ten months and furthermore, this term. Especially given that all primary schools only had such short notice to organise live, remote learning/lessons alongside in-school teaching for vulnerable and key worker's children.

I am in awe of the dedication, commitment and sky-high standards that our teaching staff have shown (throughout the whole pandemic). It is so clear to see that they are extremely passionate about continuing to provide our children with outstanding levels of education even with all of the added scrutiny, pressure and risk to their own health & safety. They do not only do this professionally, they do it with a smile and bucketfuls of positivity and care for our children's educational and emotional needs. 

I'm overwhemingly grateful to them all. As a team (led by an outstanding head, Mrs Eileen Stewart), I feel they are second to none."

 

Message to Year 6 staff team from parent Jan 2021

"Just wanted to let you know that (child) has loved his live lessons the last couple of weeks. He said he liked it more than being in class, and a lot more than mummy or daddy helping him.

Could you please let Mrs Tong, Mrs Cole, and Mrs Bushay that (child's) parents really appreciate all their hard work and think they are doing a wonderful job."

Message from parent January 2021

"Dear Mrs Stewart and all the SMCS Staff,

We just wanted to thank you all for all your hard work and ongoing dedication. This week must have felt never ending! With both children at home accessing the remote learning, we wanted to let you know how impressed we’ve been with the live lessons.

(Child) has enjoyed the streamed lessons and has really engaged with the set-up with the teachers interacting between those at home and those in class.

The set-up for Year 1 works well with the children being able to watch the lesson and get involved by answering questions thanks to the brilliant TAs supporting the children at home.

A special mention for Miss Harris- she has been amazing!  Setting up the home learning, responding to work whilst trying to juggle a new class is a tall order. Please let her know we appreciate all her hard work and effort."
