"The free breakfast club is great but for work I need childcare before 8am. Can you help me and open the breakfast club any earlier?

Response from the academy: From this comment we consulted parents about the need for pre 8am childcare. Many people who used the free magic breakfast club did not need the club to open any earlier. However there were a few parents who did not use the club as they needed childcare before this time. We therefore opened our 7.30am provision which charges just £1 per day per pupil. This club also provides breakfast and is supported by our teaching assistants.

"My child is really enjoying nursery, as Grange Lane is not his catchment school do I have to take him to my catchment school for reception?"

Response from the academy: We are delighted that your son is enjoying our nursery and the flexible way you can take your 15 hours provision. The answer is no, the choice of reception school is completely yours, if you would like for him to attend our school for reception please put us as your first choice for a reception place on the admission form. As long as we have enough available places we will endeavour to support all children and their families no matter of where they reside.

"Grange Lane will hold a lot of lovely memories for my daughter and I. Brillant school & happy learning."

"I am completely satisfield with everything but I do think the school menu should be re-assessed."

Response from the academy: We offer a hot meal including vegetarian, a jacket potato and choice of 2 different sandwiches. We appreciate that the choice can become tiresome so we work with Chartwells to change the menu each term and include speciality days such as Dwiali, Bonfire night and Chinese New Year to keep it interesting.

"I think Grange Lane Infant Academy has been a brilliant school and hope all the kids in the future will enjoy learning there"

"My daughter has made some real progress with her reading and has been very good at sounding out words she cannot read and her confidence has grown everyday".

Response from the academy: We are so glad that your daughter's confidence has grown in her reading, we have noticed that our new Read Write Inc scheme has made a real impact on not just children's ability but their confidence also. We are glad that this has been noticed at home.

"We've enjoyed all the different activities that we got to do together, we also value how helpful the teachers and all the staff are."

Response from the academy: We are delighted that you enjoyed all the many activities we ask parents to be a part of, such as stay and makes and learning in the classrooms. We know how important working in partnership with parents is to each child and their learning.
