Dear Mrs Garcha,
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for the support that Foxfield Primary School gave my Grandson XXXX. XXXX started XXXX XXXX XXXX in September 2015. He is in set one for all subjects except English which he is in set two. Within a week of being a pupil at XXXX he was elected to the position of class councillor and Captain . XXXX prepared a presentation unaided to explain why he was a suitable candidate, and to why people should vote for him. As you are well aware XXXX started Foxfield in XXXX he as a very shy sad little boy, however I believe that because of the guidance /patience and devotion of all the Teachers /Teaching assistants/admin staff, not only XXXX but every child is given the opportunity to be the very best student that they can be regardless of social problems or background. The schools ethos was reflected in the last assembly attended by the year 6 Children and their families Every child’s progress was celebrated. Whenever I visited Foxfield I saw happy polite children. Educationally speaking it is apparent that Foxfield set the bar high and the children achieved good Sats results. I would like to thank Mr Mustafa for his dedication to hard work, and his kindness and compassion shown to my grandson I would like to thank also Mrs Baines and Mrs James. I wish to thank Mrs Garcha, for the pastoral support that you have given XXXX and my family in the role of a teacher and a safeguarding officer. I would like to wish Foxfield Primary every success in the future.

Dear Miss Bansil,
I've just been looking at the school calendar and see year 1&2 have a school trip to London zoo planned for the end of term. As a parent I really like that they get to go on so many trips, they love it and it's just encouraging that the school obviously value these additional educational opportunities. And it's great that you are taking advantage of being in London, there's so much available on our door step that so many children would miss out on if you didn't take them.
They are both really excited about their trip to "the dinosaur museum" next week.
