At Trotts Hill working in partnership with parents is very important to us. It is in partnership we achieve the best outcomes for our pupils.
Parents are surveyed twice a year and their views are shared with stakeholders and acted on. Trotts Hill has an open door policy and parents are encouraged to contact the school office to make an appointment with the class teacher, Keystage leader, Deputy Head teacher Mrs Kramer or Headteacher Mrs Evans.
Parent Feedback July 2023 - End of Term
"I would like to express my profound gratitude for the amazing impact you have had on my son's life and learning. Thank you for believing in XXX and helping him to settle safely"
"I feel XXXX has had a really good year this year and has really enjoyed Year 6 and really like her teachers, shes really progressed well and could not have asked for nicer teachers and a better year for her as her last year at Trotts Hill".
"I could not agree more with XXX's report. XXXX started school with needs that meant she needed intervention. She has always been resilient and determined and over the years with the help of the school and passionate teachers has faced those challenges and finished her primary school journey on a high, not only smashing a greater depth result in her SATs and core subjects but building her knowledge as an Eco Warrior and participating in the girls netball and football teams. Cannot speak highly enough of not ony the year 6 teachers but of the school as a whole".
"XXX has very much enjoyed his time in Reception and it has been fantastic to see the progress he has made., I have really seen his eagerness to learn come through this year. Thank you to a wonderful teaching team for helping his development".
"I am writing to express my appreciation for the detailed and informative annual report you provided for my son. I want to commend the entire staff, especially teachers for their dedication and hard work throughout the year. I am delighted to see the academic and social progress of XXX as well as his positive contribution to the school. While we are leaving, we are grateful for the strong foundation you have built".
"I am so pleased that his first year at school has been such a successful and happy one, testament to a great school and teachers. Thank you".
"What a fantastic report and amazing SATs results. We could not be more proud of everything that XXX has achieved at Trotts Hill. XXXX has enjoyed school and this time she has spent here has equipped her for all the skills she needs to be successful in Secondary school. We are very grateful for all of the opportunities XXX has had across the curriculum. We are really sad XXXX is moving on but so thankful for her time at Trotts Hill".
"XXXX has enjoyed his time at Trotts Hill and I know he will look back with fondness. The school has nurtured him through his time here and helped him grow into himself and pushed him to achieve his best. Thank you to all of the staff at Trotts Hill".
"I am very happy with xxxx's report. She has grown in confidence this last year and I think the Science Ambassador role has really helped. She enjoys Maths and is always trying her hardest with that subject. Overall I am very happy with her progress and hope she continues to grow within Year 5".
"We have read through the report and acknowledge that is a true reflection of his abilities. We also hope to support him improve as he progresses to Year 1. We are much grateful for the relentless effort put in place by the school to see XXXX improve greatly. Much gratitude to the Teacher for her kind and unfathomable professional support towards XXXX".

Thank you so much for the past year. XXX has developed more than we could ever have imagined. We are immensely proud of him and extremely grateful to the teachers.
We are very proud of XX and what he has achieved during his time at Trotts Hill. We look forward to what his further achievements will be. We would just also like to thank the teachers for all their support during these last few months you are all super stars.
We were worried about how XXXX was going to cope with the transition from old school to Trotts Hill. Surprisingly, he settled well in the new school. Moreover, he prefers Trotts Hill from his old school in every aspect. He has made lots of progression in reading and other learning activities. He enjoyed every minute of school.
It was a pleasure to read XXX's school report. We are so proud of the progress she has made this year, not only academically but socially as well. It is a joy to see she is kind and thoughtful at school as well as home. XXX has loved year X and all the brilliant opportunities for learning, the support from her teachers and the involvement in school projects - particularly being a reading Champion! Thank you.
XXX has thoroughly enjoyed his first year at Trotts Hill. He has taken to school like a duck to water immersing himself into school life and embracing the structure and learning possibilities.
I am very pleased with XXX's progress in school. He loves coming to school and seeing his friends and teachers. Trotts Hill is a very good school and always supports the children. I am very happy and cannot wait to see how much XXX will learn in Year 1.
We thank you teachers and faculty for consistently delivering such high standards of positive learning and values for our young generations. We hope you keep up the excellent work. Many thanks again.
We are so proud of XXX and the progress he has made this year. He is always enthusiastic about going to school and often has lots to tell me when he gets home. His reading has come on amazingly although I often struggle to motivate him to read at home. He has had a great year and is looking forward to year 1.
XXXX's time in Trotts Hill has been fantastic. I am very proud of all that he has achieved from the Headteacher to the other staff. I say thank you to all. Parents concerns are always taken into account and dealt with if needed.
We are very happy with XXX's report and are very pleased with his progress this year. We thank all of the staff for the great efforts they have made for the children this year. XXX always loves going to school, so this reflects in his achievements this year and that the staff make Trotts Hill a great place to be.
What a lovely report for XXX. I cannot tell you how happy it made both of us that they managed to do their full year. Thank you as always for the dedication that you all give to support our children. A big thank you to the Teachers who have been amazing given the amount of time they missed in year 1. I will never get tired of telling you how proud I am to be part of the Trotts Hill community.
We are also very proud of XXX. this is a wonderful report, we are very grateful to the Teachers for all their hard work. We have loved watching XXX being very conscious in his role on the school council. It has been lovely to see him take on this responsibility and to see his confidence grow. It is quite unbelievable to consider this has been his first full year of school given the pandemic. We appreciate the enormous hard work that has gone into nurturing the children this year and we are particularly grateful for the extra support XXXX has had. Our sincere thanks.
We are so happy that XXXX had the opportunity to join Trotts Hill. Our only personal regret is that he did not join sooner. We know it was a steep learning curve but feel he did his best to match Trotts Hill's high achievement levels. Thank you.
We were delighted to have received such a wonderful report for XXX. We are very proud of their achievements this year and the wonderful progress she has made whilst embarking on her school journey. XXX thoroughly enjoys attending school and is excited to continue her learning journey at home where we will continue to support her. All of this is testament to her wonderful teachers. We thank you whole heartedly for your continued support and encouragement on XXX learning journey.
We are so pleased with XXX's school report and so happy with the start she has had to school life at Trotts Hill. It is lovely to see the progress she has made and how much confidence has grown both in and out of school since starting in September. The teacher and support XXX receives from the staff has been amazing and we are so grateful for that. Thank you.
What a fabulous report. We are so proud of XXX for all she has learned and achieved during her first year of school. Thank you to all who have been involved this year, we are delighted to be able to continue XXX's school journey at Trotts Hill.
Dear teachers, I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation for your fantastic work with XXX. She learnt a lot and she enjoyed attending school. This is extraordinary achievement. Thank you very much for it. My warmest regards.
