Ofsted: In July 2018 they visited our school and they said:Pupils are a credit to the school. They treat each other the utmost consideration and ensure that the school makes everyone feel welcome and valued. Pupils new to the school, including international new arrivals and those new to speaking English, are made very welcome and settle quickly. One child remarked, ‘We are all unique and great friends from different countries. We are like the united nations here’.
Sadly each month we say goodbye to pupils who are returning with parents to their home countries following study at universities or hospitals. We receive amazing feedback from these parents, below is one parents comments:"Thank you so much for offering my child the opportunity of studying here. She learnt a lot and attended many activities. The biggest gain for her was to learn to play with children from so many diverse cultures, which helped her to respect and cherish other peoples unique character. What impressed me the most was the care, love and support all the teachers and pupils give to each other. The smiles on faces are the symbol of love, respect and understanding given. In our heart Water Mill Primary School is the best school! Thank you."
