"Thank you for a truly uplifting assembly.  It was funny, heartfelt and touching in parts.  It was lovely to feel part of a community again and see faces we haven’t seen in what now feels like forever.  I am also extremely impressed with the steep learning curve many of you have accomplished with IT lessons. No one ever had this in their teacher training  but you have embraced it like the professionals you are."

Pupil Voice


Please find the feedback from ‘Pupil Voice’ that was collected independently on Tuesday 3rd December 2019:


  • All thought they attended a great school. ‘Simply the best’ said one pupil.
  • All unanimously agreed that the teachers helped them to learn. They enjoyed the many different activities and love it when they were given an extra hard challenge.  ‘We like it when teachers explain things clearly. It helps us to get better.’
  • All agreed that bullying was not a problem at Cranford.  'Everyone helps each other’
  • All agreed that teachers help children to understand by writing green comments in their books.  ‘Teachers always give you an example….. you are never left on your own.'


  • All pupils unanimously agreed that the work challenges all children, whatever ability level. One pupil said: ‘Teachers activate our learning, they turn it on so we are always ready for the next step.’
  • ‘If we learn something quickly there is always something new and more challenging to do.’
  • ‘Challenging is not the same as hard; there is a chance that you may be able to do it if you try.’
  • Over the past year there have been so many improvements to our school grounds:  ‘There is so much equipment so that we can keep fit and have fun.’  ‘This school believes in celebrating our achievements.' 
  • '...there is plenty of extra help for some children and always something new for others.’
  • ‘All children are valued and listened to. There is always fairness and we have a great school council that speaks up for our views.'
  • ‘Maths is practical. We have so much new equipment to help us in our learning. It makes sense to me now.’
  • All children agreed that bullying was not an issue. ‘Sometimes things happened that were called bullying but they were not bullying because bullying is several times on purpose.
