    I would like to end this term by expressing my gratitude to yourself and all of your team. I have spoken to a couple of them a few times throughout the whole 'lockdown' period. As a family we feel so supported and really happy with all the processes, daily emails, teaching methods, support that's been offered and available. It's been outstanding, it really has. My son has had a couple of wobbles along the way but it's been quick to rectify with an email and a phone call from school. His head of year is a credit to the school, she's been great with him putting his mind at rest and has been lovely.
    The hard work the school has put in as a whole has certainly helped from our point of view and we have every faith and no concerns in our children returning to school in September. Both children are looking forward to coming back too which is fantastic. Enjoy your summer break and sincerest thanks.

    Dear all NK staff, I am sorry I have not been in touch each week or taken part in your extra online activities, I even admit I haven’t read all your daily emails . Sorry.
    This period of time has been eventful, emotional and some days have been harder than others.
    Throughout I have been aware of you all working at school to support all the children and prepare for the uncertainty of things still to come. I thank you for this.
    During this time I have learnt how to upload, download navigate Microsoft teams, (unfortunately algebra is still something, even after hrs on You Tube that I still have no idea about) and deal with more teenage dramas.
    Listening to some stories regarding home schooling I can not thank you enough for continuing to encourage my son's learning by providing him with work to complete . I never thought he would admit this. but he is looking forward to getting back to school.
    I hope that over the next few weeks you all manage to get some time to relax and spend time with your families.
    Thank you for everything you have done and will continue to do in the months to come. Stay safe.

    I would also like to thank all staff at NK for all their efforts through out ‘lock down’. Communication has been consistent, pertinent and informative. The work set has been achievable for my daughter and she has had regular feedback from the majority of her teachers. They have also answered emails promptly. You have made schooling from home as hassle free as able and for that we are grateful. We hope you all have a restful summer.

    I just wanted to drop a quick note to the management team at NK to say how professionally I think you have dealt with the situation over the last few months. I have just sat down with my daughter and gone through all the changes in the email and I could tell she felt happy and relieved that things aren’t going to be too much different to “normal”. The fact the kids have another few weeks to digest everything is great.Thank you so much for all your efforts it hasn’t gone un noticed in our house and I hope you can all have a break over the summer.

    As a mum with three teenage girls I didn’t really think about how this would impact me as a parent or a person, until I received calls from heads of years and teachers who support my girls. Straight away the conversation started how are you! How you coping!! It was so nice to hear someone ask how I was.  I have had contact with the teachers on many occasions seeking help to keep my hormonal pack happy as possible.  But without school support I couldn't of done it Thankyou from the bottom of my heart. You guys are in such a difficult situation but you have carried on regardless.

    I would like to say a massive THANK You to all my kids teachers and those who answered my weepy concerned phone calls, and helped me to feel comforted that they are on it. They have read and replied to my long winded emails, and showed me the same care and support they have shown the kids, even though it's not their job. So they are not just amazing teachers, supporting my kids education, their thoughtfulness, kindness, and care make a massive difference to both my kids and us as a family. Over the years there have been so many teachers and staff that have gone the extra mile.

    I would like to send a message of thanks to the academy in general for the support offered to our family during this time. Specifically for the reassuring call, and sparing the time to chat. I don't see or speak to other adults as often as most people so it really helped. On a student based level I couldn't ask anymore. My son only joined your school in year 9 and the difference was immediate. I saw an almost instant change in him. From the first parents evening I realised why when I saw how engaged all the staff were with their vocation and the students. Being in year 11 these last 2 months have been incredibly difficult for all concerned but the daily updates giving us as much info as was possible have helped. The outcome is certainly not ideal for the students but I feel the school have handled it well. So thankyou to all the staff, for battling through and continuing to work when it seems you have very little outside support. It is very much appreciated, not only now, when things are so unsettled, but always.
