The school is amazing.

11.11.22 Y6 Parent:

Love the variety of before & after-school activities available as they fit within our work-life balance, making it easier for our child to attend.  We were both happy when our child had the same teacher in Y4 – Mr Simons has an amazing influence on our child plus other parents we’ve spoken too.

11.11.22: Y6 Parent

I wish to express how delighted we are at the comments received at Parents evening this week and in particular from the meeting I had with Miss Breakwell this morning regarding ****’s learning. I have been overwhelmed with the quality and quantity of work **** has been engaged in and the support he has been given to support his learning goals. I wish to express particular thanks to Miss Breakwell for her support, dedication, enthusiasm and encouragement. ****’s learning has developed greatly with the support provided.

Bellfield Junior School is the best school out of all the schools my children have been to.****** really wants to come back, even though she has Covid and I've tried to tell her she can't!

28.01.21: Parent of Y4 child:

We as parents really appreciate the home learning platform and the communication from the school and teachers as well

Hope you are all well. I would just like to say how impressed I am with year 3 learning lab and a very big thank you to all the staff putting it together in this very difficult time.

22.01.21 - after a Year 4 nurture group online session:

Just wanted to say Thank you. Zoom was great, and kept ***** and the other children engrossed with what you was saying and doing. He really enjoyed the session and seeing you and his friends. We look forward to next one.

21.01.21: Parent of Y5 child:

I really appreciate you and all members of staff for working in this tough time. I want to say a big thanks for all you guys do and done so far. Thanks for your kind reply and it’s really touched my heart.

08.01.21: Parent of Y3 child:

Hi, I just wanted to thank everyone at the junior for there amazing support through such a tough time. Was really appreciated Miss Craddock calling to check in. The work and laptops that have been provided and the food hampers are very much appreciated too. Thank you for all the hard work that has been put in to help families I know it must be as hard for all the staff as it is us families.
So thank you all so much from a very grateful family.

08.01.21: Parent of Y4 child:

***** seems to be doing swimmingly and seems happy to get on with things reasonably well on her own, though obviously with some cajoling, encouragement and review as required. I am incredibly impressed with the home learning materials that your team have provided. She has found it easy to access and there is a variety of things to keep her busy and entertained, including access to other sites where she has been playing maths and spelling games. 
Thank you again to you and your team for everything you're all doing. Home learning and working is challenging but thanks to your materials is not insurmountable, (at least not so far!) so fingers crossed we can keep going. 


Hello year 3 team,

Thanks for the structure you provided for me to work with *****. This is the most organised and clear home schooling I’ve done and it was only possible due to the structure and guidance you provided.
I won’t say it was easy, as I was tested many times but your structure was so clear that there was no room for ***** to try and trick me

05.01.21 - Parent of Y5 child

Just a quick message to say a huge thank you all for today. ****** was really sad coming this morning but yes come home with a big smile and feels happy and safe at school. As a keyworker it’s hard leaving him but I’m grateful for all you have done to support Jordan today and obviously I know you will continue to do so.

 With huge thanks

24.08.20 - Parents of Y4 child:

Dear Mr Attwood and team,

Just a small note to say a big thank you for all the correspondence we've had from the Junior School over the past few months. It has given us assurances that you are "on it" and I never feel like I don't know what's going on as regards Freya and her life at school.

It has been weird times for all of us, but we have appreciated your frank, open and honest communication about what the school is up to and what we need to do to play our part. Thanks again

16.07.20 - Parent of Y6 child leaving us today:

I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help with ****. It's been a rough year and I can't thank you enough for all you do. You will be truly missed.

16.07.20 - Parent of Y4 child:

Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication during recent times. Your stability and support in ensuring children still received a high level of both teaching and support has been much appreciated.

16.07.20 - Parent of a Y6 child leaving today:

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you in all you have done over all these years. ***, **** & *** have some amazing memories and will carry those with them always. You helped make them into 3 amazing young people. I will be forever grateful and wish you well.

16.07.20 - Parents of a Y6 child leaving today:

Many thanks for all the support you have given ***! You've been an amazing school and you will all be missed!

16.07.20 - Parent of a Y6 child leaving today:

Good afternoon everyone,

Due to unprecedented times we have currently been facing I have been unable, in person, to show my upmost gratitude and thanks to all the amazing staff at Bellfield School. Therefore I hope this email may go some way into showing how truly thankful to you all I am.  

I would like to first thank you all for the wonderful care and support you have given Daniel during his years there, you all got to know Dan on a personal level and taught him so much! I know he will miss Bellfield a lot and we've had lots of tears since returning home. You have kick started his education and I hope because of his time at Bellfield he goes on to achieve great things! The T-shirt was a wonderful touch too!

You also taught my son Lewis - who some may remember? He is starting his 2nd year in college in September and is doing so well. Bellfield has been a big part of my familys life for over 33 years,;  I attended Bellfield myself  starting nursery there over 33 years ago! You have gone on to teach my brothers, James and Ben and my sisters, Sarah and Amy. Then going on to teaching my children, Lewis and Daniel. This school has become a big part of our lives and it shaped all of our educations from the start - we will always be big advocates for Bellfield School and we can never thank you enough. All the staff are wonderful, caring and supportive and I will miss coming in to see you all and the great plays, assemblies and workshops you held.

My Dad can now hang up his shoes as his 33+ years of school runs have for now come to an end...but maybe in the not too distant future another of us may grace the gates of Bellfield school again!!

 So a massive Thankyou to each and every one of you for everything you have done for my children, my siblings and myself... you are all Hero's!! 

23.5.20 - Parent of a Y2 child:

I would like to say a big thank you for allowing **** to attend your school and for welcoming him with open arms. In the past 2 months, I have seen a huge change in him and although we have all been riding this awful storm, I have found comfort in the positives that I now have my little boy back and it is with thanks to your lovely team. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you.

27.4.20 - Parent of a Y4 child:
