We would like to share some of the fantastic comments we

have received from people that have visited our school.


11th April 2019

I am emailing to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who accommodated our visit to Foxfield.  Your Headteacher and two Deputy Heads were so professional; they presented your school, Trust and global curriculum with clarity and passion.  The positive, values and ethos of the school and  Inspire Partnership were clearly evident. The Deputy Heads spoke about the Trust with enthusiasm, it was clear that everyone had the same level of commitment.  Your vision to ‘transform the future for our children through partnership and collaboration’ was evident throughout the presentation and when looking around Foxfield School.

The school environment is exceptional; I understand that whilst it has been ‘years in the making’  it feels like a place children would want to come and learn and staff would want to stay.

The global curriculum which links to Oxfam’s six goals and values was inspirational and helps to prepare children from a diverse community for their part in the global world.  You recognise that children are change makers  and the children’s leadership team certainly champion this. The children that we spoke to were proud of their school, they were keen to talk about and share their work and to be ambassadors for Foxfield Primary; please thank the children for us.

Discovery Schools Trust is outward looking so we would happily accommodate a reciprocal visit to our Trust, please do let us know if you would like this to happen. 

On behalf of the eleven staff from Discovery Schools Trust, thank you for the hard work you all put into the day, your hospitality, the efforts you put into the presentation, your lovely children who were so keen to talk to us, your committed Deputy Heads, Headteacher and English Lead for sharing the values and vision and how they transfer into the curriculum.   

You inspired us all.  Thank you very much.  Warm Regards

Dear Mikala, Candice, Sarah and Rupinder (who I was delighted to be introduced to today)


Thank you all so very much for your hospitality today.  As you know, I was completely blown away by your school and I am still calming down from one of the most positive experiences of my working career of 25 years in education.  What a truly amazing burst of energy it has given me.  How wonderful we have schools like yours in this country - kudos to you all and to your staff on all of your hard work and for inspiring the children (and me).  I look forward to including your case study in my art and design chapter and will be in touch in due course.


Thank you again for everything - I really feel inspired and elated.


Have a wonderful weekend.


Best wishes


I wanted to say a massive thank-you to you and your staff for welcoming the 'Barham Team' in to you lovely school, the time you took out to spend with us, and your amazing children. 

We have found it very inspirational and there are many things that we saw at your school which we are hoping to implement here.
