Parent Testimonials

“Selwyn Primary School School offers a uniquely, safe and supportive environment for children of all ages. What we love about the school is the way staff works tirelessly as a team to understand and encourage every individual pupil, stretching their talents and addressing their needs. Every child has a special place and the chance to succeed it is a place where everyone looks out for everyone else. Before we discovered Selwyn Primary School, our child was struggling to make any friends, now he is at ease within a community that respects him and which he respects, enjoying the company of children of all abilities. We are confident that he can learn in his own way, stretched to achieve things he might not initially feel capable of. As parents we have felt welcomed into the Selwyn Primary School community. Nothing is ever too much trouble. We would not hesitate to recommend Selwyn Primary School School to others.”



“Selwyn Primary School School provides a caring environment where children are encouraged and nurtured. Both our boys are learning at their own pace and thoroughly enjoy learning and school. Every Child Matters’ is often quoted in education, at Selwyn Primary School it is true; each child really does matter.”



“When we were deciding on which school to send our children to we were looking for a nurturing, inclusive and unpretentious school environment. We wanted the teaching team to be approachable and have an opportunity to help shape the schools future.  Selwyn Primary School School fits that bill completely. We particularly wanted a school where the arts were celebrated and developed. Selwyn has three choirs, opportunities to learn many different instruments with highly qualified staff and a musical, linked to their learning., every term!



Our children are very happy, love going to school, enjoy learning and take great pride in their own and their peers’ achievements.  What more can we ask for.”



“If you are looking for a school where your child can grow and learn in a caring and nurturing environment, where your child will be inspire to be the best the can be and where they can make friends for life, then Selwyn Primary School should be your school of choice. I cannot thank the Head, the other school leaders and the staff enough for all they have done for my daughter. I have watched her grow into a confident, self-assured and caring individual extremely well prepared for the next step of her education.”
