We are very proud of our playgroup, we are pleased to have some great feedback from the community.

Thank you so very much for giving our daughter so much love and attention these past two years.

The headteacher from St Luke’s told us

Over the last decade, St Luke’s CEVA Primary School has experienced a dynamic learning journey with many imposed national and regional changes. Throughout this period, we have been supported by “our” Noah’s Ark Playgroup, its children, leaders and managers. The playgroup has always worked alongside the School an has helped to increase the school roll. There has been a total collaboration in every way and this has helped to provide our school community with an extended facility. Our older pupils work with playgroup children on a regular basis to increase awareness and foster an extended family feeling. As our playgroup now embarks on its own learning journey, we look forward to continuing our very special relationship.

We really get children ready for school

As I watched our new Ladybirds and Hedgehogs this September, it was very clear from their earliest sessions in School, so many were confident and content to be playing and “workng on their jobs” in their new surroundings. The transition from Noah’s Ark had evidently been very effective. The playgroup staff work hard to encourage their pupils’ independence and natural love of discovery and learning – and this really shows with our new reception classes.

Even the teachers think so

It is lovely to be able to work alongside each other. It makes the transition for the children coming to us very smooth and easy.

Parents agree

To all the staff at Noah’s Ark, thank you for taking good care of Sophie over the past year, teaching her new things and providing her with lots of fun memories. We would like to thank you for providing an excellent beginning to Sophie’s school life.

Thanks, we really appreciate it and will keep up the efforts for you an your families

The Noah’s Ark Team are great. Our daughter has really enjoyed her time with you. She has enjoyed the playing games, painting, making models, reading and cuddles.  She has also enjoyed becoming part of the school community with playgroup, trying out assembly and eating her lunch with her friends.
