Annual Reports

Having sent out the annual reports, we offer parents the opportunity to comment on them and return them to school. We value these comments and publish them on our website.

As parents we would like to thank you for putting such a lot of effort into events such as the Royal Wedding and Sports Day - My whole family commented on how well managed the school is, (even my 85 year old). BCPS is definately living up to its reputation and we are grateful our child is there."

"Thank you so much for all your hardwork in putting this report together - it must be an enormously long job for you but it's wonderful to read all about our child and how she's getting on and w're very grateful. Emily has thoroughly enjoyed this first year at school and that is due largely to the huge talent and care of the teachers. You're all fabulous and we hope you have some idea of what a brilliant job you all do."

"Thank you for a very pleasing report. It is good to see that despite his perception of his ability in literacy, he is at a good level. This report has had a very good effect on him (for the present at least,) It has boosted his confidence tremendously to see his teachers' assessment of his ability in print, and that the levels given exceed his self-assessment."

"It is clear from reading my son's report that you have got to know him incredibly well over this year. He has settled well into your class and I am delighted he will remain with you for another year. You have brought out the best in him and he obviously adores being in your class. I am very pleased with his progress this year and am confident that he will continue to thrive under your care. Thank you for all you have done for him this year."

"A glowing report. Couldn't be more pleased!"

"I am pleased with how in depth and personalised this report is. It clearly explains to me the subjects studied as well as her abilities and preferences in each. It is obvious to me that this specific report was created for my child alone. I appreciate how much time and effort went into preparing this. It was informative and personal and gave me a clean picture of my daughters' first year at Burnham Copse."

"We are very pleased with our child's report. He has achieved so much in his first year at school, we couldn't be prouder."

"A very pleasing report. Thank you for all the help and support you have given my child at Burnham Copse."

"We are very pleased with our child's report this year. She seems to be progressing well. Thanks to the class teacher for her support."

"A great report again for my child. Comparing last years to this years her progress again is fantastic. She does struggle with spellings - unfortunately she gets that from myself, but together we will get there. My child was very pleased with her report and it has given her a big confidence boost. Thank you class teacher for all your hard work this year with my child, she will miss not being in your class next year."

Thanks to all and the school. We look forward to our child moving into the next year group. Our child is also very happy with her achievement."

"We are very pleased with Gemma's progress and we feel that she has achieved a great deal during her time at Burnham Copse. This has been due to her putting in the effort needed, but also to the great support she has received from a good team of teachers and other staff who always gave her the encouragement needed over the years."

"We are very pleased with our child's report, she is obviously doing very well, for which we are very proud. our child seems to have come a long way since their last report and we hope her learning continues in this manner.

It is good to know what they are learning during class and how well they are doing and to know ways in which we can help them progress.

"Both my wife and I are very pleased with the progress our child is making at school. We can both appreciate thet the class teacher has a difficult task teaching so many children, however the progress which our child has made can only be reflected on the time and effort that the teaching staff apply to the children."

"A very pleasing report. We are very pleased with the progress our child has made this year and appreciate all the support he has received. Thank you."

"We are pleased with this report. Our child seems to be at the right level and in some cases above. He has enjoyed this year and I can see improvements in both his reading and writing as well as his willingness to complete homework."
