"Mrs Claire Hodgson is absolutely amazing, always looking to improve well-being, education and safety. Everything me, my wife and children being from the Gypsy Traveller community have never felt more welcome that what she has made me, my wife and children feel through my life I have encountered a lot of racism but the school all of the teachers the diversity has been absolutely amazing and for that I can't thank you enough. Thanks once again".
"Let me take this chance to share with you how very grateful I am for Burstow's response to home-schooling. Yes, it was a challenge for many, but I did feel that our school had a perfect balance of screen-based and self-regulated learning. The staff were all amazing in their delivery of YouTube and Zoom lessons, something that really is not easy to do! So thank you all, so very much"..
"One of the parents at the school has recently got in touch with me to share your message and celebration you will be putting on for pupils when they return on Monday. As such, I just wanted to drop you an email to say what a fantastic sentiment and way for the pupils to reflect positively on what they have gained from this different time. I will certainly share the message with my colleagues in Parliament".
Claire Coutinho, Member of Parliament, East Surrey
"I just wanted to send you a note to say how inspiring and uplifting the messages are that you are sharing with your community, the children attending Burstow are very lucky indeed".
Liz Mills, Director Education, Families & Learning, Surrey County Council
"A huge thank you for today's treat of Silly Scott's Magic Show. Ending this message saying my son secretly misses school (on our daily walk yesterday he waved to it and whispered I miss you)".
"Thank you also to all staff at Burstow who have gone above and beyond during 2020. The smiles that have greeted my daughter every morning are just one example of the positivity and caring nature of the whole staff team. The communication home has also been very impressive throughout".
"We just wanted to say a huge thank you for welcoming our girls to your school at the start of this term, they have settled in so well, and absolutely love going to school now, and have the best learning experiences, we can't believe how much you do as a school to enhance their learning! The change in their attitude has been amazing to see, and I can't thank you enough for making them feel so welcome! From a very happy mummy and daddy".
