Parent Views

Here at Thoresby Primary School, every opinion is extremely important and valued. No adult or child stands alone within our community, and we pride ourselves on the combined strength of 'Team Thoresby'. A crucial part of 'Team Thoresby' are all the parents, whose children we have the pleasure of teaching.

But what do they think about our school?

Check out the some of the wonderful comments left by parents during recent Parental Consultation Evenings.

Below are a selection of the numerous responses collected by our Governors during a Parental Consultation Evening.

Parental Consultation Evening

Really happy. Son is happy.

Thoresby has been incredibly supportive of my 2 boys, they love the extra activities and being part of such a supportive school.

I have two children at the school and I am constantly impressed with the staff, teachers and receptionists. Carry on the fantastic work!

Very happy with the progress my daughter is making at the school. Also like the parent involvement- I recently took part in a taster dance session and it was great fun! Keep up the good work!

Extremely happy with the school. Any problems are quickly and efficiently sorted out. All teachers are very approachable. My boy has learnt a lot.

Thoresby is a great school. It really feels like the children are involved and supported as individuals. The teachers are great and always available with issues or questions. It’s a real pleasure to see that my son is developing as part of this wonderful school. He asked me to write “I’m having a lovely time!”

We are so happy with everything at Thoresby; the teachers that our son has had so far have been amazing. We feel they understand him and challenge his learning, encouraging him to do his best. Thoresby can do no wrong in our eyes!

We’re delighted with Thoresby School. Our son loves it here and is very enthusiastic about all his learning. We’re very impressed with the approach to teacher such as the actions to go with stories and the little rhymes for sounds in phonics.

Our son is coming to the end of his time at Thoresby, he has loved his time at the school and is well prepared for his secondary school!

My children love this school and are doing very well.

My child enjoys coming to school, he enjoys sports day the most.

Our daughter loves Thoresby School. The staff have always made her feel welcome and safe.

The school has always been there for my child in time of need and my child is very happy. Would definitely recommend this school.

Both of my children love coming to Thoresby School. Teachers and staff are approachable and helpful and the children are offered some fantastic opportunities for learning.

I am always impressed when my kids come home and tell me about their day (as an ex-teacher that’s no easy feat) but it’s the way in which the school deal with my children’s well-being that impresses me the most. If they’re troubled I can let Miss Gillard know and she will always listen and help. The kids teach me yoga and this has got to be good alongside emotional intelligence and a general feeling of love and respect. I am confident Thoresby was the best choice of school for my kids. 

Thoresby Primary School is a wonderful place for children to learn. The most amazing element of the school is the teachers who go that extra mile to ensure children are happy and fulfil their potential. As a parent to two boys who attend the school, we believe it’s a blessing. The school celebrate the differences in children and as a parent, it’s reassuring to know that my child will be supported at every step of their primary education.

As a parent of two children at Thoresby and moving to Hull from Saltburn-by-the-sea, Thoresby has been a great help to us settling here.
