I attended your school on Tuesday to carry out a presentation regarding Aspiration week, and I just needed to comment on the excellent behaviour of every person I met. The school children were exceptional; they were very polite and welcoming, and even after every child I spoke to said Thank you. Normally I wouldn’t notice this, but it definitely stood out.
I expected the hall assembly to be noisy whilst all the children filed in, but as I was setting up my demonstration I heard a quiet softly sung chorus of what can only be described as Angel’s voices, this literally stopped me in my tracks and felt a tear coming to my eye.
I couldn’t believe the emotion I felt after coming out of your school, I was there doing a presentation to inspire them, but actually the children inspired me, I felt like I needed to change my attitude, my outlook on life. I need to do more!
This also goes for the team of staff that work there, I got the impression that the teachers actually have TIME for the pupils, they were prepared to listen, I felt every one is ‘on-board’ with what they want to achieve with the children.
I spoke to 3 of your students from a Nurture group, on one hand I felt that it was sad that these beautiful children at this age can feel like “I can’t do this”, or “I’m not good enough”, on the other hand how wonderful it is that the teachers are helping them, these children have someone who will listen to their worries and help support them at this important stage in their lives.
I cannot express how privileged I felt being at your school and it was only for one day.

I just wanted to write to you to thank you so much for inviting me to your school and providing me with the opportunity to speak to some of your girls about the financial services industry. I was so impressed with the William Bellamy Primary School and everyone that I met there. I thought that the pupils I met were so well behaved during the presentation and were really engaged. That really came across with the number and level of questions that they had after the presentation. Everyone made me feel so welcome and I would be very happy to come in again if required. If anyone has any further questions that they would like answered, please do not hesitate to let me know.
