Thank you so much for looking after our precious little girl. Under your supervision she has felt cherished, safe and supported enough to grow in confidence and blossom (Little Willow Parent July 2017)

We can't thank you enough for looking after our little girl so well. You've loved her, cared for her and nurtured her when we were so nervous to leave her in a new place. You have supported us and shown nothing but kindness. What each and every one of you does is so important to us Mums and Dads. (Little Willow Parent July 2017)

Thank you so much for taking care of our XXX since he was a baby. Everyone has been so caring and he has been incredibly happy at Longwood. He will miss you all and we are very sad to be leaving. (Pre-School and Cherry Parent July 2017)

Thank you so much for looking after XXX so well whilst she's been in Cherry. She loves coming to nursery and tells me all about what she's been up to! (Cherry Parent July 2017)

She has blossomed in her years at Longwood and has become a happy confident child. (Pre-School Parent July 2017)

It is incredibly hard to express how very thankful we are that both our children have gone to Longwood. Thank you for helping them grow, not just in terms of education but more importantly with happy confidence. One child started at 3 years and the other at 3 months old. (Year 6 parent July 2017)

I would never have imagined a headteacher never having her door closed, and so easy to access. Thank you for everything that you have done. You are inspirational and you have helped me so much. I will really miss you. (Year 6 parent and pupil to Mrs May, Headteacher July 2017)

We've been coming to Longwood for 13 years and are so sad to be leaving, but our babies are learning to fly! You've done wonders for the school in such a short space of time - it was a wonderful school 10 years ago but it's truly brilliant now. Thank you for everything that you do - you really change children's lives. (Year 6 parent to Mrs May, Headteacher July 2017)

You have helped me achieve and experience so many things that will never be forgotten. You are very special and shine like a star. (Year 6 pupil to Mrs May, Headteacher July 2017)

It is clear my child has greatly enjoyed his time in Longwood, and has clearly made some good friends within his classmates. We cannot thank you enough for all the things you have done to guide and nurture him as he has grown these last 3 years. He has come back from nursery every week having learnt something new, which is just fantastic for any parent to see. We certainly hope that his new school will be as nice and accommodating as your staff have been. (Oak Parent June 2017)
