Parent Survey Sample 2023

'We are very pleased with the provision of education to our daughters in Reception and year 4 but Appleton Thorn is much more than that, the culture, values and ethos is exemplary and the behaviour and character I can see developing in my children, particularly in my older daughter, I believe is due to that. She is respectful, cares for others, demonstrates kindness, understanding and fairness and I really believe this has been driven by AT’s strong values led approach to school life and all of the fantastic teaching staff who implement it. Our daughters could not be happier.'

I love Appleton Thorn and all the staff. They all work so hard and show real commitment to the school and the children. Whenever I’ve had a concern about my son it has always been dealt with professionally and with real compassion. He is growing in confidence and ability which shows just how much the school has supported him. Thank you
