Lovely Parental Feedback!

As you know we here at Harris Primary Academy Chafford Hundred, really appreciate the feedback and support we get from our parent body.


We have lots of contributions, with an overwhelmingly positive message, on the Ofsted "Parent-view" page for HPACH and where it has been indicated that more can be done, ie: in sharing information about our approach to dealing with bullying and in developing better approaches to homework, we are taking action to do so.

To access the Ofsted Parent-view page please click here.


It was also really nice when the following letter came into our office today from the parent of two pupils in Nursery and Year 2 of our academy. We thought that it would be nice to share the positive message as it lifted our staff on the first day of term.



Dear Mr Britt

I wanted to let you know how I feel towards the school and staff who dedicate their hard work and enthusiasm into what they give day to day with the children.

...... my son who is in the Nursery, has made such positive progress in his development and learning and as a parent I feel really proud of what I see and hear of the day-today learning in the Nursery. The staff have been so co-operative and supportive and I respect as a parent what they are doing to make our children who they are today.

...... my daughter, in Year 2, has progressed from strength to strength in her maths and thoroughly enjoys her learning and development. I am very impressed.

The school in my opinion is outstanding and I feel proud when I drop my children off and to know that they are in good care and good hands. I know that their achievements will help them go far in their future life.



We really welcome the feedback we get but it is so nice when the positives get shared as well as the things that need improvement and we anted to thank you because as a parent body we get a lot of praise and recognition and it  really helps make our staff feel valued.
