As part of our ongoing school improvement, to ensure we are giving the best quality education we regularly ask for feed back from our parent community. Here are some of the comments we received in March 2022.

"I just wanted to say how amazing todays sports day was, Walker and Wonder were all so happy and proud of themselves. I wanted to send an email in particular to praise year 6 and how fantastic they were with each of the younger groups. It was so lovely to see the older kids interacting and taking care of the younger kids, and they did such a great job. It’s really rare to see different age groups mixing so well and they were so compassionate and enthusiastic with the little ones. It really shows what a lovely environment you’ve developed at Darell for all of the children."

"We attended the sports day this afternoon. Both his grandad and I thoroughly loved it. It was so well organised and the teaching staff and the Head Teacher really made a huge effort to make sure all the children were included and enjoyed their afternoon. We especially loved the tug of war at the end.
Thank you so much and please pass our thanks on to the staff and children. Such fun."

"Most welcoming, diverse, inclusive secular school in the area.  Very impressed with the school ethos and how engaged the children were with their learning and their teachers."

" My son has been a part of the Darell community since 2015 when he joined the nursery, and has always had such amazing support! As well as us as a family.
It was a no brainer we wanted our daughter to attend Darell & when I was told she could join the nursery early because her birthday was in the September I was overjoyed!
During Covid-19 we were again shown just how wonderful the school & the community is, with weekly check in calls & making sure the children was as happy as could be!"
