Parents' and Professionals' comments about Kingsdown School


At Kingsdown School we take pride in providing the very best for our pupils. In order to help us, we ask parents to let us know how they think we are doing.

At Parents’ Evening on 8th March we decided to offer various workshops where parents were able to see some of the work we do in school. Workshops comprised: Papa Piccolo, ICT – Interactive Games / Switch Skills, Singing Hands, Role Play, Forest School / Stickman Trail, PE, Art and Sensory Integration

In total, 38 parents attended, some attending up to three different sessions. 24 parents completed feedback questionnaires, all of which were positive.

A selection of the comments received have been listed below:

  • "Loved it enjoyed it very much."
