Kind Words @ Our Place

We are so very proud of the young people we care for and educate and it is hugely important to us that they feel they are heard. We are also extremely keen for parents guardians and Ofsted to share with us their experience when coming to see the children.

Here is what a few of them have said about their time here with us:

To everyone at Our Place school, I wanted to say a big thank you to all of you for looking after A. His time with you was only short but you have all made such a difference to him. He is a much happier and relaxed boy from his experience with you all.

I would have loved for him to stay with you as I felt that he belonged there. You took such good care of him and taught him so much. If it was up to me he would still be with you!! 🙁

I know that you will all miss him and I am sure that he misses you.

Good luck to you all and I hope that we will keep in touch.

Thank you G for being his key worker, you and everyone there have really helped him. I hope that he will be able to keep in touch with his friends too.

Just a little message to say thank you for sharing your report in advance with me, and what a lovely discussion held today!

If you’ve got an Ofsted feedback form, I’m happy to complete one and return by email if this is helpful. It was really valuable having the day to day keyworkers present, as they were able to bring to life your report in a way which leaves such a valuable footprint.

Just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate all your efforts for the YP.

‘Our Place is a happy school. Pupils develop trust and confidence because of the positive relationships they have with staff.

Teachers have high expectations of what pupils can achieve. They tap into pupils’ interests, such as gardening, cooking or sewing, to make learning fun. This helps pupils to stay focused on their learning.

There is a calm, purposeful atmosphere in the school. ‘
