'Absolutely delighted my daughter goes here, the staff are amazing and my daughter has some additional needs and the SENCo dept are so supportive and caring. Would 100% recommend the school to other parents.'

EYFS transition Autumn 2023


'We liked that the days built up gradually. We feel this helped Adam adjust to the new demands of school.'


'She is loving her class, teachers, making friends and learning new sounds every day. She’s also loving the lunches!'


'Yes, she doesn't say much when she first gets home, but later in the evening, she acts out a little lesson where she pretends to be the teacher and we're her pupils. It's really eye opening and quite sweet that's the way we find out what happens each day. She says things like "now we're doing literary learning" and she shakes a tambourine and we have to wave our hands in the air!'


'We loved the time table supporting the start in Reception, he loves drawing his family and his house, sharing experiences and learning new things.'

'Very lucky and happy that my child is going to RD.'


'I just wanted to thank you for the show round on Monday. We weren't sure whether or not to look around again considering two of our children have already been through your doors. I am so glad we did. 

With Effie being a pandemic baby and possibly autistic we are slightly more concerned as to where we send her however, having looked around with her on Monday, we are certain Round Diamond will be the perfect provision. 

The children throughout the school all appeared so engaged and supported. 

Everything we saw was amazing from the beautifully well behaved and well-mannered children to the spectacular display boards! 

We learnt new things on the show round and got to see your lovely school with fresh eyes.

Thank you so much for the opportunity.'

Our daughter has enjoyed this academic school year. She has enjoyed the year 5 learning especially the hands on activities. During home learning the home learning she was kept engaged.

Year 5 Parent


I am proud of my child’s achievements this year. It has been challenging due to lockdown and he has demonstrated resilience. He has enjoyed doing home learning projects such as building a Roman catapult. He has shown progress as an independent reader and read lots of books. I am looking forward to seeing my son progress next year.

Year 5 Parent


During a very challenging year the staff and teachers have been fantastic in supporting children in not only continuing their learning but providing a safe environment. The home learning and support online was amazing and meant my son had structured time. He has thrived in year 1 and I have really enjoyed all the learning he has been challenged with. He is so happy at Round Diamond and we couldn’t be happier. Thank you!

Spring Term 2021 relating to lockdown and remote learning.


Thank you so much, my son absolutely loved it! It's unreal how they adapt so quickly, always surprising us in what they can do.  Nursery parent


Thank you all so much. It takes a lot for my son to sit still and pay attention and you have all done an amazing job engaging with all of the children. 


I hope that you all are healthy and well during these very difficult times. I just wanted to email you today to commend you for the hard work and excellent lessons that have been delivered by your teaching staff. 


Understandably, following the announcement of the third lockdown I dreaded working from home with the children again. I have a very high pressured job that entails having meetings and telephone calls with schools hourly. However, since the start of my daughter’s online lessons both my husband and I have been amazed at the high quality of teaching, learning and engagement that has been delivered. My daughter enjoys seeing her friends, completes the work and is happy to share with us what she has learnt. It feels like she is in school all day and only comes out to be fed and watered.


I just wish to thank you for all your efforts in the last few days. I fully appreciate how hard you must have worked to have kept the school open and then to have provided such fantastic online content for all the children at such late notice.

Both of my girls were engaged with the live content today and happy to see the faces of their teachers and friends. I so hope they get to see them at the school again soon.

Well organised, the children were brilliant.  Well done to the teachers.


Really enjoyed seeing how the children learn and interact well with the teacher.  It was a lovely experience.


Useful insight into what goes on in the class.  Very interesting.  Thank you for organising.


Year Two

Loved the fast pace, all children were included.


It was lovely to share the learning experience with my child and see the fantastic learning that goes on.  A lovely calm classroom.


It was very useful to see how the teaching is delivered, Really enjoyed this session.


Year Three

The children are clearly fully engaged in the activities throughout, this can be seen and shows how much is put into keeping the lesson ast paced and exciting.  


I was really happy how they were taught and it helps me at home with my child.


Great to watch how my daughter interacts in class and with fellow students. Really well planned.


Year Four

Children very well engaged.  They were all very enthusiastic to join in.  I would love to attend again.


Very useful to see classes live!  Interesting to see the level of engagement between teacher and pupils.


What a brilliant idea!  Thank you so much for allowing a "fly on the wall"experience.


Year Five

I think its great that the children work  in pairs as they help each other. 


Fantastic idea!  I really enjoyed this session.


Very enjoyable.  I even picked up a few words/meaning myself!


Year Six

It was lovely to see them getting involved.  The music was a lovely touch, very calming.


Wonderful to see an English lesson in full swing.  They are all so confident and happy sharing in a comfortable environment.


Children all seem thoroughly engaged.  A positive focus on attempting to answer regardless of 'correctness' of the answer.




Parent Feedback - Maths Taster Sessions 

Spring Term 

Year One

I found the taster session really helpful, I enjoyed watching the children engage and learn.  The teaching style really engages them.  I look forward to the next.


Good to see a structured class and the deployment of extra help where needed.  Good balance of group and independent exercises.


I really enjoyed watching a maths lesson.  I love the way the teacher gets all children involved and to the children it seemed enjoyable to them.  I like how learning is practical and using the resources to help the children in their learning.  I love the marking criteria you use as well and how you challenge the children.


Very interesting and enjoyable experience.  Given an excellent insight into how learning is achieved.  All children were engaged, well behaved, good re-enforcing of learning, overall a very pleasant session, well done.


Really useful.  Love how well the children work together and respond with confidence to the teacher.  Very happy learning!  Pleasure to be a ‘Fly on the Wall’.

Year Two


The children are really motivated and engaged and the atmosphere for learning was excellent.  There were no ‘bad’ mistakes – everything used for a learning experience.  The teacher has a lovely relationship with the class.


I was really impressed with the variety of methods used and how interactive the lesson was.  The teacher was so patient and positive with all the children.


Great experience, would be interested in seeing another topic in the future.  Lovely calm and fun atmosphere at the same time.

It would be nice to be able to sit with the children whilst they are doing their learning to observe them individually as well as collectively.  Thank you for offering us these opportunities to observe our children’s learning.


Year Three

I found it valuable attending the sit in lesson today, it was great to actually see how a lesson is run and how the children get included.  I would like to attend another one.


Really loved seeing the equipment (like the visualiser) that is available to the teacher and pupils.  Great to see how they keep the kids engaged.


Taster session was interesting to see how well the children engaged with each other and the teacher.  Found the teacher really made sure the children understood what they needed to do.


Year Four 

Excellent range and use of resources, teaching methods.  Teacher was fun and all of the children were engaged.  I was surprised at the number of children in class for one teacher.  Excellent method to guide how I can help and increase learning at home, to encourage my child.


Good to see clarification from the start on method to use.  Good behaviour.  Useful to have immediate checking that what they are doing is correct, and that they understand what the answer is, not just doing the sum.


It was a very happy and relaxed lesson.  All the children were totally engaged.  They were given choices as to what questions they wanted to try.  I would’ve loved to have come to Round Diamond if I was a child again.


Year Five

I found the taster session very interesting and important as it shows teachers’ skills as well as the students’ learning capabilities.  Enforces both student and teacher out of their comfort zones.  Good to be out of your comfort zone as it’s that what helps you grow.


Interesting use of diagrams throughout.  I will incorporate more into home learning.  Excellent teaching as always.  I am constantly surprised how well the children grasp the very adult terminology.  Many thanks.


The learning style is more mature, preparing them for secondary school.  Plenty of help and support was offered to the students.  The quieter students were being aided in joining in discussion.  Visuals in their learning were triggering a better response when being asked questions or during their discussions.


Year Six 

It was a pleasure to be in the classroom and witness so many children engaged in their learning.  When asked “who would like help” there was no hesitation by some pupils to move onto another table to help each other.  All the children were engrossed in their learning and seemed to be enjoying themselves very much.  Thank you, I really enjoyed the lesson.


I really enjoyed today and found it very helpful to see how my child is taught.   I really like how the children talk about their answers and discuss the subject.  No child seemed embarrassed asking questions like I used to when I was at school! 


The teacher got the whole class answering and engaging with problem solving.  They wanted to learn and weren’t worried about making mistakes.
