Some parents requested more external visits. Each year group goes on one school trip per year. As a school, we are mindful of the current expense of living and would prefer not to burden families with the costs of additional external trips. Most school trips cost each parent approximately £20. Often, only half of the parents pay, making it difficult for us to continue with the trips.


9. 98% of parents would recommend us to another parent.


We also received some amazing comments from parents. Here are a few to enjoy.

'Having had another child go through the Infant School, I have seen how the school has improved immensely under the leadership of the new Headteacher. There are so many activities for the children to take part in and my child is making great progress.' 


'My daughter couldn’t be happier.' 


'We moved our son here last year from another school and it was the best decision that we have made. We wish that we had placed both of our children here originally. Our son has settled really well and any days that he has struggled the staff have been amazing! He is very happy here and enjoys coming to school and is often shattered at the end of the busy day of learning.'


'My daughter is happier here than any of my children have ever been at any other school. Every member of staff is kind, welcoming, understanding and supportive of both children and parents alike. The leadership is exemplary and you can tell that at Maidenbower Infants, unlike too many other schools now, the focus and priority is the children and that their emotional and mental wellbeing comes before all else- just as it should be :) Thank you to all at the school for providing my child with so many great memories and experiences.'


'I think the school does the best job they can with the resources they have available. There has been a vast improvement since Mrs Roberts joined the school.'


'This is a wonderful school, which has thrived since the arrival of Mrs Roberts. The teachers and teaching assistants are wonderful, and it is clear to see that they really do ‘care’. I would recommend this school to anyone, and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all for taking such good care of my daughters.'  


'Overall we are very happy with the school and would highly recommend to other parents!' 


'My child has progressed immensely with phonics, speech and language, and confidence since attending this school.'
