At Gleadless Primary we feel a strong commitment to our children and their families. Children flourish when schools and families work together in partnership and we strive to do just that every day for every family. We feel privileged to work with such a hardworking community who do so much to support our work at school.
Covid 19 has been a very difficult time and both lockdowns have presented schools and families with unprecedented challenge. We want to say a huge THANK YOU to our families for their incredible support and hard work during both the lockdown of Summer 2020 and Spring 2021. It was quite a challenge to home school the children and so we were so impressed by 95% of our remote learners regularly accessing their live lessons each week (on three or more days a week).
Here are some of the kind comments our teachers and support staff received. Colleagues worked incredibly hard and it was wonderful to hear that this was appreciated. Together, Covid will not hold us back!
We think Gleadless is doing a great job!
Even though it’s a very difficult time for all of us, I just wanted to say thank you to all of the staff at Gleadless for your support
The teachers and other staff have been amazing, we are very grateful for all the support and learning materials - thank you all so much.
R’s teacher has been amazing. She has been there for R when ever she needed help or a question answered. Thank you, you have been an amazing support for me and R.
The Year Six teachers have been absolutely amazing! Their prompt feedback and help has been brilliant, every single piece of work has been checked , commented and guidance given where needed virtually immediately that day which has been fantastic for C to read, it’s given him a sense of his work has been worth doing and encouraged him to give the work set his very best under the different working circumstances , the y6 team are a credit to the school and deserve a huge well done !!!
We would like to thank [the class teacher] for all his time and work he’s putting in so the kids at home get the same learning experience that they would in the classroom. My son looks forward to the zoom calls with him everyday even though he’s shy when he gets on. You all are doing a great job, thank you.
The year 5 teachers have done an amazing job under very hard circumstances. They have been very helpful with technology issues we've had. The live lessons have been brilliant and a good link with school. They have worked very hard (and often over weekends) to ensure we have the information we need and to provide interesting and engaging work. Thank you to you both and the amazing efforts the whole school staff have gone to under very difficult circumstances.
J is in school for part of the week, the time he isn’t the work prepared by the teacher is excellent. J very much enjoys his home learning.
Well done to everyone at Gleadless Primary!
