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:

Honestly, sitting in the parent workshop, I felt simultaneously humbled and proud that my son has been given the opportunity to be educated at your school, and chuffed that you all are continuing to ‘walk your talk’ and action the principles you have spoken of since AVA’s inception. My wholehearted thanks and appreciation to you all.

Parent March 2022

The progress my son has made is phenomenal, we couldn’t be happier. We feel very lucky that he’s in this school.

I was really touched by how kindly my son’s teacher handled my call this morning. Yet another instance of the love and care that permeates throughout the staff culture; it really means a lot – thank you.

Parent November 2021

My son joined Addington Valley Academy in September 2021 and we are very happy with the progress he has made in a short period of time. During half-term we were able to take our son to the park where he enjoyed playing on the swings and tried out the other playground equipment rather than just wanting to play with the grass or dirt. He also calmly and safely held our hands whilst travelling to the park and back, meaning we didn’t have to worry that he might run into the road. We would like to thank his teacher Jack, and Johnson class team for their hard work and commitment.

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.  

Parent – November 2020
