What an outstanding performance of 'A boy in the girls' bathroom'. Your team again went above and beyond and are truly committed, but the drive of Mrs Jones and tanasity to do what she did is nothing but inspirational for the children.

"I wanted to share my gratitude concerning your work on promoting online child safety.
I want to suggest you share an important guide which came out last week. I found it was very thorough on child safety online: https://www.vpnmentor.com/blog/the-ultimate-parent-guide-for-child-internet/
I liked the way they summarized each section with actionable items for the parent/teacher.
Once again, thanks for helping protect our kids"

Thank you Mrs Smith, Mrs Jones & Mrs Ridsdale for all the extra music activities Lydgate Junior School offer. Our boys are so lucky to have been involved in choir, windband, orchestra and handbells and thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas and Summer Concerts.

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to Mrs Wymer (and all the other staff who have helped) for all the amazing sports activities this year! Our children have loved cross country, the swimming gala, the Fun Run and being Playmakers as well as the numerous sports clubs they attend at Lydgate Junior School every week! We appreciate all the extra time and commitment this takes.

I just wanted to pass on very positive feedback about my daughter's time a Lydgate Junior School. She is just coming to the end of year 4 and since day one has thoroughly enjoyed coming to school and has thrived. Thanks for all the hard work that you and your staff put in to making the school such a positive and supportive place. We really appreciate it!
