Parent Consultation Surveys

In December 2022 we carried out a parental survey and had some fantastic responses.
We are always keen to hear parent's views and opinions. We strive to ensure all children and parents are happy here at Joy Lane.
Please read some of the lovely responses from our parent community:


Thank you for being such a caring school. Everyone works so hard for our children and we appreciate your efforts. Extremely happy our children are part of the Joy Lane family!

There’s is nothing bad to say about Joy Lane. We love it so much, it’s a happy, fulfilling place to be!

My daughter has additional health needs which are accommodated really well by her teacher.

Mrs X has been very effective in helping my daughter with some of her anxieties, which were impacting her school and general life.

The kitchen team have been very accommodating in incorporating dietary requirements which has meant my daughter has felt more included.

Special mention for how amazing the music department is, Mrs X has gone to such great lengths to encourage my child musically.

Our family have been made to very welcome at Joy Lane and we are incredibly grateful.

Our boys are flourishing at Joy Lane! Teaching is very creative, broad and engaging and all staff care strongly about the overall emotional well-being of the children too. Senior leaders and teachers are available daily to talk to and the diary is packed with fun events & activities for the children and wider community too. There have been a couple of teething problems with the new Arbor system, but all issues have been dealt with swiftly. We are very happy to be a part of this positive and nurturing community!

The staff go above and beyond to not just educate our children, but also to enrich their school experience and make it the best it can be.

We’ve been really happy with all our interactions with the school and the team. Both teachers we’ve experienced so far have been fantastic (positive, constructive and really personalised the learning experience to date.) My only slight criticism would be school meals and if they could be healthier, however I do know you deal with all allergies in an incredibly inclusive way and appreciate that catering for so many mouths on a budget must be very challenging.

Joy Lane has always gone above and beyond to support my children when needed and whenever it has been required. You are all great, keep smashing it!

Absolutely amazing school, would recommend this school for anyone! My child has just gone into year 1 and is absolutely thriving. Her teachers are amazing and all the staff are so happy, friendly and helpful. The new after school clubs are brilliant and so happy that parents’ evenings are now going ahead.

Thank you. I’d just like to say that I’ve been so impressed with Mrs X and Miss X so far this year. The speed at which they’ve got to know my child is remarkable and she is so much more settled both in terms of learning and friendships this year. It’s been lovely to see.

I’ve tried to come up with some constructive feedback, however, I have failed! I feel that Joy Lane is an amazing school. Well done to all of you.

Thank you for being such a great Team at Joy Lane

Thank you to all of the wonderful teaching staff, teaching assistants, premises staff, office staff and management.

It is brilliant the school encourages a love of reading. Fantastic support for emotional well-being. Being given the recent ‘dates for diaries’ this far in advance is incredibly helpful.

My child has thrived at this school. We are incredibly happy with the progress he has made throughout his whole time at JLPS and are very happy with the support he has received. we would (and have) highly recommend Joy Lane to others. Thank you to everyone.

We couldn't be happier with the education and support our daughter has received at Joy Lane. The staff go above and beyond and their passion and fondness for all the children really shines through and makes the Joy Lane community what it is. We feel very lucky and fortunate to be a part of it! Thank you

The best school for all 3 of my very different children x

SEN is always dealt with appropriately and promptly. I have a daughter who is currently struggling in the mornings and the teacher has immediately put things in place to ensure she has as smooth a transition as possible.

I am so grateful and happy with the level of support and communication from teachers at the school.

Both my children love school and skip in happily every day. They come home excited to talk about their learning and are so enthused and engaged.

They have made progress every year and been encouraged to work hard. They also use words like ‘respectful’ and ‘responsible’ when at home as these values have been instilled in them at school.

The opportunities available to them at school are fantastic and both my children thoroughly enjoy the different extracurricular clubs. They are also lucky enough to have access to forest school and the swimming pool on site.

Staff are all so friendly and make themselves available to talk if I have ever needed to discuss anything.

A truly wonderful primary experience for my little ones.

Great activities for the students to access, especially the forest school for students to explore the environment.

I love how caring and full of energy JLPS is. It is well run, and feels like they are doing everything my child needs to progress and be happy at the same time.

Joy Lane is a wonderful school.

The school continues to go above and beyond for all pupils. I would like to thank all staff for their continued dedication and support.

Joy Lane has done wonders for my child and since joining Serenity in the mornings there have been no issues going to school he loves it. Doesn't want to go to secondary school. I go on and on to you all about but I honestly can’t believe what a happy confident boy my child is now compared to his previous school. I can't thank you all enough!

Fantastic school with amazing teachers and a wonderful community feel. I’ve never had any issues or concerns. My children have been very happy and settled throughout their time at the school.

Joy Lane has a full and enriching curriculum and all my children have fulfilled their full potential in school.

I could not ask for better support from the teachers over the last few years.

My son is very happy and looks forward to school.

The teachers at Joy Lane are very dedicated, going above and beyond their teaching roles.

My daughter has settled in really well, her teacher is brilliant and takes her character into her day-to-day life. She has had excellent help with a concern with speech and keeps me informed of her progress and her day-to-day activities.

Since the start of this term, both my children have seemed so happy at school. Thank you to their teachers.

A beautiful community a fabulous school. Love it

As parents we appreciate the clear and consistent communication, the newsletters are very helpful, as is class dojo.

One of the nicest things about the school is the emphasis on fun and having lots of different activities / themes.

Thank you to all teachers and staff, what you do is appreciated.

We are very happy with the school, especially since the covid restrictions have relaxed and we have been able to feel like more of a part of the school and understand what is going on with our children’s' learning.
