Parent Testimonials - September 2017

 

In our eyes, O has gone through quite a transformation and we are so grateful that the teacher and the rest of the school team have been able to support and encourage as well as they have. Thank you!

 

Huge thanks from us to everyone at The Round House who have made E feel so happy and well cared for in her Reception year.

 

Expected a good report for H, but to see in writing how fantastic he is doing was a very pleasant read. Extremely happy with how his education has progressed since he started.

 

We are very happy with the schooling and attention that A has received whilst he has been at school and this can be seen in the results.

 

I am very pleased with L’s progress. He is very happy at school and is enjoying learning once again.

A quick email as I am coming to the end of the 2nd school year working with you all at The Round House.

 

Just wanted to say how much I enjoy working with both the Staff and Pupils at The Round House. The Staff are so positive and open to picking up any new information that can help in their own development. The children are a pleasure to work with, so well behaved, engaged and fun to be around.

 

Look forward to assisting your school in the best way you see fit in the future.

 

Regards,

Testimonial from a visiting vet - May2015

 

I recently visited the Round House Primary Academy school to talk to the KS1 children about being a Veterinary Surgeon. I really enjoyed talking to the children about the sort of things I do in my working day. I showed some pictures of my surgery, including some recent patients. We looked at some of the instruments and kit that I use, and got some of the children dressed up like surgeons-ready to go into theatre! We had lots of fun. I then examined Simba, the school dog, and one of the teacher's rabbits. Thankfully they were both in perfect health, other than a bit of ear wax!

The children were excellently behaved. They were very attentive and interested, paying close attention to me as I spoke. They were good at listening, and there were  some great questions asked at the end of my talk. Some children showed a really mature understanding.



 

 

Parental Testimonial - May 2015

We have been so pleased with the Round House Primary Academy. Our daughter started reception last September and has settled in really well. She loves school, and seems very secure and happy. She is learning lots and enjoying herself. A few days into the holidays and she is wanting to get back to Robins!

We cannot praise Mrs Moulam and the TAs support staff enough. They are clearly very good at their jobs! They are kind and pastoral, yet strong, directive and with very high standards for learning and behaviour. We love the holistic approach to learning, especially the school dog! What a fantastic idea. Simba is what our daughter talks about most....we get daily updates on where he was spotted and what he was doing!

We would wholeheartedly recommend the Round House to any parent.

Parents/Carers comments on Summer 2012 reports:

I am very happy with Grace's school report, especially how confident she has become. Her reading has come on leaps and bounds. One very happy mummy.

A lovely report, thank you! It was very comprehensive and informative and we will certainly take on the advice offered. Thank you.

Thankyou for all of your help and patience you have had with him! You have a very good school and the school staff are very happy to deal with children even if they are from another country! Thankyou!

We are thrilled with all that she has achieved at school this year and delighted that she has obtained Level 3 in all areas. Thankyou to Miss Coleby for being a fantastic and inspiring teacher.

We are very please with his report. It's great to see that he has made such progress. We are also pleased to hear that he will be included in intervention groups during year 2 as this will help him improve in these areas. Thankyou for your hard work and continues support.

It was a pleasure to read such positive comments. He tried really hard with lots of extra help and support which was reflected in his SATs marks.

I helped with Swifts class today (Nov 29th 2012) at the St Neots Story Telling Superstars Festival and I wanted to take the time to write to you about how fantastic The Round House children and teachers were.
 
The behaviour of our children was exemplary.  They were without exception, the best behaved school in attendance.  They listened carefully and joined in with everything.  During the telling of our story, we were accompanied on stage by two other schools.  Our children participated fully and wholeheartedly and carried on despite the school who were positioned behind them behaving badly.
 
The teachers were so encouraging and had clearly put in lots of effort..  They were brilliantly prepared and the only school to bring activities for the children to keep them occupied when necessary.


I was so proud of the children and they are a credit to the school as are the teachers. (Lorna Allen)

I attended the morning session of the Sport Day to see and support my son and his classmates.  I was very impressed with the games organised, the children behaved very well and seemed to have lots of fun, despite the poor weather.  The year 6 pupils were very good helpers to their younger peers and set a tremendous example.

I was very impressed with the behaviour and interest shown by all students throughout my stay at the school as well as the support of teachers when working with the different classes. The introduction to archaeology and the showing of the site under excavation went well and the pupils (including the younger ones) were attentive at all times. 

The classes were enthusiastic about what we did, asked questions and were at all times well behaved and polite. For me the morning went very quickly and I hope that all pupils learnt a little more about archaeology in general and about the archaeology around their school. I hope that they enjoyed the whole experience. I certainly did and I look forward to returning to the school in the future.' (visiting archaeologist, October 2012)


 

We wish to thank the entire Round House team for all the preparation and rigorous discipline that have clearly led up to the excellent production we saw at the Christmas play this afternoon. The children were very well trained and performed wholeheartedly. You made us very proud parents!

“I had the pleasure of visiting Rockingham Castle today with Year 1 and 2 and what a wonderful day it was.  The children really seemed to enjoy learning about the castle, it’s structure and its history.  Not only did the rain stay away which meant we got to explore as much as we could in the time allowed, but the children were so well behaved.  I can honestly say that it was very enjoyable sharing the day with them and watching how their classroom topics were able to come to life through the trip.  It was very obvious that they have really enjoyed the dungeons and dragons topic by all the interesting questions they had for our tour guide.  Also a big thank you to all the teachers who organised the day so well and who were meticulous in their planning.  It definitely paid off.  After such a wonderful trip I look forward to being able to help on other school excursions if the opportunity arises." - Mrs Anstee
