We always love to welcome visitors to our school, and the children are always very proud to show visitors around. As we await further news from the government in relation to the easing of restrictions, visiting parents are currently not permitted into the school building. We ran some Open Afternoons over the course of the year, where parents could book a slot and come for a look around our grounds. This was very well received and the feedback was very pleasing. Please scroll down to see some quotes from visiting parents.
Our Headteacher, Miss McGann, is more than happy to show parents around our school grounds, and inside once permitted. Please book an appointment through the school office.
Please see below two videos that will give you and your children a flavour of our school. There are also some FAQs at the bottom of this page. If you have any questions, or require any further information, please do not hesitate to give us a call on 01276 472489 or email the school office on email@example.com
This first video is a chance to meet our leadership team and see what some of our children have to say.
The second video is a virtual tour, this will give you an insight into the layout of our school. Enjoy your tour!
QUOTES FROM VISITING PARENTS
What did you like about Connaught?
'I liked the outside space, and the fact there is pottery workshop and a science lab in the pipeline.'
'Staff members were welcoming, we like the outdoor facilities and the playground/play area.'
'The facilities and space are excellent and we received a very warm welcome. My son, who can be shy, happily spoke to the teachers which gave us confidence that he will be happy at the school.'
'Great open spaces with lots of creative use of the outdoors for activity and learning. The classrooms were welcoming with really engaging displays. The Headteacher was welcoming and clearly has high aspirations for the school and a clear vision as well as being down to earth. The other staff members we briefly met were also really friendly and certainly seemed happy.'
'The school flowed well and the whole place seemed really well thought out for the child’s educational experience. I liked the ethos of the school and that it’s teaching good life long habits as part of normal practice. Good motivational approaches for children at different levels of attainment was really encouraging. Loved all the sensory support as part of everyday school life too. I was really impressed!'
'Warm welcome, school tour, informative evening by deputy head, time given by head teacher, Year 3 Head, welcome wave by other staff. We like the Year3 rainforest display, forest school, playground equipment & new golden mile track.'
And from a current parents who came with younger siblings:
'I love everything about Connaught. I like the facilities that are on offer to our children, the way things are taught in school in a fun and informative way. The teaching staff are fantastic.'
'Location. The pride taken in all of the areas of the school. Friendliness of the staff. Safety procedures. The organisation & efficiency when we went into the first lockdown with regard to home learning, something I feedback to all parents when they ask about Connaught.'
