"Dear Mrs Carlisle, Thank you X can’t wait to return!  A massive thank you to you and all your team, the organisation, communication and commitment to home learning has been excellent.  You have made a very challenging time so much easier for parents and fun and engaging for all the children. Have a good weekend." 5-3-21

"Many thanks for all your hard work and support during these difficult times. The arrangements for all children returning to school seem very well organised and advice about drop offs pick ups seems to be a great solution." 3-3-21

"Good Afternoon, For Abi’s gymnastics challenge last week she had to create a poster thanking the NHS and key workers.  This is Abi’s poster and she wanted all the teachers and staff at GLPA to see it because she thinks you are all brilliant & she wanted to say thank you for all your hard work.  A big thank you from me too." 1-3-21

"Hi Mrs Carlisle and Mrs Coughtrey,
I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for the last few months during lockdown. The quality of the teaching and the lessons whilst being remote have been outstanding. I can’t imagine how hard is must be keeping a class of 4 and 5 year olds engaged but X has remained focused throughout which can only be a testament to the teaching.
We’ve had a fantastic selection of reading material provided throughout and the continuation of the guided reading groups and 1-1 sessions have ensured that X’s development has continued.
We really appreciate all the effort involved in keeping the continuity for the children and their learning through these difficult times.
We feel very proud to be part of Green Lane.
Look forward to seeing you on 8th!" 26-2-21

"Hi, I just wanted to send a thank you in to all the staff for their hard work during the latest lockdown. My daughter X is in Hazel(Y4) and is enjoying the Zoom classes, she particularly enjoyed the Spanish lessons with Miss Perez, the lessons were very engaging and X said they were fun ???? Thanks again." 3-2-21

"Can I take this chance to once again praise the school, and Miss Franks and Miss Harrison in particular, for everything they have done since the start of January. I speak often to parents at other schools, both in Garforth and further afield, and they are amazed by, and jealous of, the amount of time X and X get to spend with teachers on zoom every day. I hope you are very proud of what you and your team are doing for your pupils. We are certainly grateful." 2-2-21

"Dear Lucy, As you know, my daughters are in year 3 and year 6, and from everything I have seen from their teachers and their teaching assistants, GLPA is making Herculean efforts to keep the educational standard high for the children. I cannot praise the staff enough, and I know that many parents feel the school is doing an excellent job in the most trying of times. You, and the whole staff, must be absolutely exhausted." 29-1-21

"Dear Mrs Carlisle, Thank you for the offer of a nursery place on a Thursday/Friday. I have discussed this with my husband and we feel that, as we are able to work around having X at home, that this is the safest option for us. I would like to take this opportunity to commend you and your staff for how you are dealing with such a difficult situation and adapting to online learning. All the best" 19-1-21

"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you and all Green Lane staff for the excellent job you've done to organise remote learning for the children. X and X have benefited hugely from the structure and interaction school has provided." 15-1-21

"Thank you for all your amazing organisational skills and hard work. You seem to be leading the pack having heard experiences of colleagues and their school experiences at present so a massive thank you from us!" 13-1-21

"I would just like to say that we think the whole GLPA team are doing an absolutely magnificent job at the moment in supporting all pupils, both at home or in school. We feel that you have genuinely made what is a very tricky time for many families, much easier to get to grips with. I would like to make a point of saying the communication from all 3 year groups for our children has been fantastic and we appreciate every single bit of effort which is made from all the staff involved. We know it is a very busy and challenging time for all concerned and how much hard work will be going on behind the scenes. Please do pass on our heartfelt thanks to the whole team. We also hope you are all managing some much needed downtime with your families when you can." 11-1-21

"I just want to say thanks again for the continued support from yourself and all the staff. As I have said previously, running a business and having to work from home is difficult in itself, so the seamless home learning is such a great help. X has calls with her friends and seems to be more engaged with her friends over the past week or so than she has for a longtime. I know compared to other schools, the way the school has been set up with resources, equipment and teaching, is by miles, ahead of other schools in and around Garforth." 11-1-21

"Hi, I just wanted to say a big thank you to all the staff for their help during the last week of learning at home.There were more than a few technical problems for me and I'd like you to know that I was helped on a number of occasion by Miss Bingley and Mrs Coates.I'm pleased to say that I have now got a device from School, which will hopefully help.  School office staff were also very helpful when I know they must have been inundated with tasks and enquiries.Well done to everyone and thank you again." 10-1-21

"Thank you again, you are all doing an amazing job and we appreciate all you are doing to support all the children."

"Hi, I just wanted to send a quick message in to say thank you to everyone at Green Lane for all they have arranged this week and for all the lessons over zoom and dojo. Its very much appreciated and both X and X have enjoyed watching the lessons and have been happy to complete the work.  It feels like a real community as we all try to learn how to use the dojo app together! Thanks again." 8-1-21

"Dear Mrs Carlisle, I just wanted to send a note to say thank you from our family for all the hard work that has gone into this week and for keeping things going for the children learning at home. It has been a big learning curve for us but it has been such a help to have the online learning and we really appreciate everything the teachers have done to provide this. I hope you manage to get a restful weekend! Thank you again." 8-1-21

"Mrs Carlisle, Hope you are well. I can’t imagine the level of detail required to have in place for homeschooling with notice! Great job! In the last lockdown I sent feedback to you re my view of lack of detail on support, volumes of email, direction for time spent in a subject area etc, I just wanted to reach out today and advise this weeks/today’s experience has been massively different. The delivery of home school packs was efficient and smooth. Girls love the packs. The detail in the daily plan is amazing. Both girls were interested and engaged all day. They managed their time (in the most part) and were keen for the next item to start. A great start and lovely to see them engaged and motivated. We had a few hiccups with dojo app but give it a couple of days and this will be smooth too. This was more us than the girls- and we just need to get used to this. We just need to find our rhythm of school and work now but you have made this as easy as possible for us and we are grateful for that. This experience of lockdown #3 is a massive contrast to last time. Thankyou to you and the team for making this happen." 6-1-21

"Hi Mrs Carlisle, I just wanted to say thanks to all your team for all the work they’ve put into homeschooling this time round. I know it’s only been one day so far but it’s been so much better for X & X (and us), and we’ve all found it easier & more rewarding than we did before. I don’t envy your position at all, but we really appreciate all you’re doing to continue to support the children’s learning.  Many thanks." 6-1-21
