Testimonials

Working closely with students’ families is a crucial part of our work at Addington Valley Academy. We want to ensure that the school is doing everything it can to support and nurture  students. Your feedback helps us to focus on key areas for improvement and the issues that are important to you and your child.

Some comments from parents and carers:

Please could you pass onto to everyone at Addington Valley Academy that we appreciate all the hard work in helping with my son’s education whilst at home. The home packs get better and better every week!

Parent – January 2021

I think your school and staff are amazing and you have wowed me! My son was very anxious about starting at a new school, but after one week he said it was ‘the best school’. He has tried many new foods and I have added some of them to his regular diet. His maths skills are improving, but best of all, he said ‘I have a friend’ – which is huge! Thank you for all of the effort – it really shows.
