Feedback from this year's School Direct students

Dear David

I have just been reading the students' reflections from last week and I just wanted to pass on how useful they found the EAL day that you organised. They all mentioned it and how helpful it was, especially going into their NQT year. 

Best wishes

Hi Lucy

Thank you so much for allowing me to see your RAP time in action today. It gave me many ideas to take our own maths forward and extend on what we already do. The children and staff in your school are lovely and I felt very welcome.

Please pass on my thanks to them.  If you do get time, please visit our school. You will be very welcome.

Thanks again for your time.

Hi Lucy and Karen 

Massive thanks for you excellent workshop on Friday which was extremely well received.  One evaluation form says 'let me know if there is ever a job at Croyland!'  Really hit the spot.  I thought those voices were great - nothing like hearing it from the pupils.

Thank you so much.

I enjoyed the whole course and found it all very useful.  I liked having time to moderate.

It was an amazing day for all of the Interns – and for me too!  I can honestly say that visiting all three schools was inspiring.Dr Tony Daniels, University of Leicester


It’s been a well-planned, organised sequentially presented series of topics.

I just wanted to say that the training course on evening was the best course I’ve been on.  I think the biggest difference was being taught by another governor rather than an Ofsted inspector or someone within teaching who seem to have their own idea of what a governor should be doing.

Really worthwhile skill that I can take back to school and see having a good impact. Coaching Training, 2016

Thank you for providing this - it was purposeful and relevant to the National Local Agenda. Prevent Training, November 2016
