We believe that happy children will learn and that happy children lead to happy parents! Here are some testimonials from some current and past parents.
Grandparent of Year 2 child during Covid Pandemic Spring 2021:
"...you do have a wonderful teaching team and a very fine school with above all your children doing you considerable credit. I read recently that our current Prime Minister had said that he was in awe of the parents in lockdown - in reality he missed a trick because it is the teachers that have carried lockdown with great skill and considerable patience. Balancing the equation of keeping pupils engaged with interesting content and making sure that each is involved as much as is possible in a zoom environment is indeed a skill."
Parent of Year 4 child during Covid Pandemic Spring 2021:
"I have to thank you, the senior leadership team and all the staff. I have such deep gratitude and respect for all that the Greenfield team does, for the hours that the teachers have put in, for the changes they have made, for the wonderful positive feedback they give, for bringing some sort of normality to our children’s lives. I marvel at how well these young people adapt and don’t bat an eyelid at setting up for a Zoom saxophone lesson. We may think it is a very hard time for them at the moment, but wait until they are young adults running this country – they are going to be a force to be reckoned with; no obstacles will get in their way and they will be ready for anything. You and your staff are responsible for instilling such remarkable strengths in our/your children."
Senior School Head December 2018:
"Just a note to thank you once again for the quality of your references for Greenfield pupils registered with us this time. They are always the best we get: informative, incredibly useful for us in contextualising pupils’ situations and really embodying how well you as a school know each individual, your fondness for them and that you have a plan for each and everybody; all of which of course reflects brilliantly on Greenfield and your team too."
Parent of Year 6 leaver July 2017:
"Everyone at Greenfield has instilled such confidence and self-esteem into our daughter. She grew up massively in the first week [at senior school] as she had the confidence to ask questions, approach staff and sort herself out. She has been beyond-prepared academically; the learning has just quietly occurred whilst she has embraced the other aspects of school.
I can not thank Greenfield enough and [our daughter] will always have such fond, happy memories of her time with you."
Parent of Year 5 pupil 2017/18:
"It is exactly a year since we moved [our son] over to Greenfield and I just wanted to say how delighted we are about our decision.
I was over the moon last night following parents evening not just because of how well [he] is doing but also because of the investment each member of staff is making in him.
Every teacher I spoke to clearly knows and values him, is very willing to work with him to progress in various ways (not just academically) and with the extension classes, ABC class, [various clubs] and invitation to the agit8 group he is having additional, varied and inventive support every day!"
Parent of Year 5 pupil 2016/17:
"This School year has been an extremely happy one for [my daughter]... her love of learning has grown again this year. I can honestly say that she has never been happier!"
Parents of Year 6 leaver July 2017
"We’re absolutely delighted with [our son's] progress at [senior school] and would like to share this fantastic news with you.
He’s been elected to the School Council, became a School Photographer, participates in all extracurricular activities and signs up to represent the school everywhere he can, which he’s very proud of...sometimes we don’t see him until 8.30pm!
On the academic side we couldn’t be prouder – his half term report was excellent... He’s beaming with happiness and his confidence is growing.
We feel we owe you and all of [our son's] teachers and teaching assistants a debt of gratitude for getting him to such a high level and helping him develop a fantastic attitude to learning which he will always benefit from.
His brilliant progress is the clearest testimony that even only two years of quality teaching can make a life changing difference."
