Email from a Year 4 Parent - Received Thurs 7th Jan 2021


Hello Miss Cranfield 


Hope you’re well. 


The online learning set up for year 4 work is amazing! It’s great how there’s visual aid, presentation or video to embed the learning followed by independent activity. xxxxx is really enjoying completing all the subjects. She loved joining the call today, she was so happy with having seen her friends. 


A huge thank you for all your hard work with creating such an amazing online learning platform covering all areas. The amount to be done is just right, not too much and not too little. The deadlines are a great way to motivate kids too. xxxxx loves the whole thing of doing her work and submitting it.

Feedback from a Reception parent on Tapestry!

Received Fri 11 Dec 2020


Such an amazing experience to study online. We trying our best to teach her everyday's session and she gave her 100% concentration to learn. Here are some videos and pictures of her practice. Thank you very much to all teachers and the team of WHA.
I request to continue providing online study videos at least once in a week, so we can help our kids learning home as we can follow the same pattern and syllabus.
Thank you so much for your support!

Good Morning Mrs Snowden,


I just wanted to feedback that the online learning through the virtual classroom for Year 4 has been excellent. Miss Poynter has done an exceptional job at balancing the demands of children in class and those at home. She has kept the kids at home participating and engaged throughout their time in isolation. xxxxxx has felt like she was still part of her class and she has not missed or fallen back on any work delivered.  The school and Miss Poynter have done an amazing job.


Kind Regards,

xxxxxx (parent of Year 4 child)

Email received by WHA Principal 9 Dec 2020 regarding Home Learning


Dear Mrs Snowden,  


I am writing to thank the reception teachers especially Ms Rivet and Ms McClean, for the excellent singing, exercise, cooking and phonics lessons.

xxxxxx really enjoyed this and joined in every day.


xxxxxx really enjoyed the virtual chats, and we logged in everyday for this. It meant my daughter was able to see her friends and teachers and had some routine and smiles in these hard times. 


Thank you for making the hardest times seem somewhat easy for my child. 


Thank you to everyone for all their hardwork over these last two weeks. 



Kindest regards

Yes we are settling in lovely with the home learning, I think the work/videos the reception teachers have done is fantastic, xxxxxx is really enjoying it and is happy doing this from home. 


It is great when the teachers do videos like they have done so far, as it also makes the child feel like they are still with their teachers. Xxxxxx has even been explaining to me how it’s done at school.


Please can you pass on these positive comments to Reception.


Kind regards

Trust this email finds you in bests of health and high spirits.

At the outset, I would like to thank you and your SLT team for the quick and prompt feedback on the concern I raised few days back. I confirm each team member from the SLT team spoke to me personally and advised me of the action plan which WHA has taken to ensure the safety of the children(s).

At the same time, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and each and every member of your teaching staff, Sports coach, Support/Specialist teachers, HLTAs, key workers, Admin staff and premises team for keeping the school going in such unprecedented times.

Take care and best regards,
