positive feedback from parents and students, as students return to fairfield farm college
Over 50 students returned to Fairfield Farm College this week, and feedback from parents and students has been overwhelmingly positive. It was great to see the students back at the college, enjoying their time and seeing friends and tutors again after nearly 10 weeks.
Here is some feedback sent to us from parents / carers of students that joined us this week.
“Please could you pass on our thanks and admiration for how the college are dealing with this.
Although we at home are encouraging more frequent and longer hand washing, like yourselves, we have not discussed with our son all that is happening, or what changes may come ahead. We are keeping everything as much as normal (though sensibly preparing for what ifs.)
We are delighted that the college is maintaining such normality at college (as we are at home), so that his anxiety levels are not heightened, and he is not becoming fearful.
It takes great skill to maintain such continued stability for the students at this time (while making preparations for an uncertain few months ahead). It is wonderful that our son is continuing to love college and enjoy life, when there is so much anxiety around. So just wanted to say “Thank you”, and send best wishes and health to you all.”
“It is certainly a challenging time for us all, and just wanted to say how much we appreciate your continued care and support.”
“Please relay my thanks to all the staff for being amazing and doing such a wonderful job”.
“Thank you and your staff for all your extraordinary hard work, during these unprecedented times”.
“Can I say how very impressed I was with your swift and clear communication over the last week with the ever evolving Covid-19 guidelines. It was much appreciated.”
“Thank you to you all that you are doing to keep us updated with the constant changes regarding my child’s education etc. I have just gone on-line to check out the ‘home learning’ area and it is an incredible source of learning resources.”
“Video to support returning students – what a lovely video and a big well done to everyone involved. My son really enjoyed watching it and seeing familiar faces that he hasn’t seen for so long he is really looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday so see you all soon.”
