We are fully committed to the partnership between home, school and the community, working together to support children to achieve success. We value the communication and partnership and encourage parents and carers to become involved in a broad range of school activities.
“We think we are so lucky to have such an excellent school on our doorstep! The school's reputation for looking at each child as an individual is very much deserved, and we've felt well supported as parents of a schild who needs some additional help with his learning. Our son settled into Reception quickly, made friends, really likes all his teachers, and loves his time at school. He even asks if he's going to school at the weekend! There's a really welcoming, village-y feel to the school as a whole as well. Our family feels actively part of the local community now, thanks to Joseph Hood School”
“My husband and I chose Joseph Hood School because we love the caring attitude of the staff at the school, and the warm atmosphere they create for the children. My children are thriving and are well taught, with their strengths recognised and challenged further, and with support and help for those areas they find harder. The friendly school community and good relationships amongst the parents are also another reason I love the school."
“We have a family history of attendance at JHPS (20+yrs old!) and live close by; it was our first choice. Since accepting out place we have found the school to be excellent, welcoming, supportive and friendly, not just the staff but students too."
“As a new Reception parent to Joseph Hood School I have been extremely happy with our experience so far. My daughter loves coming to school and she has settled in really well, particularly as she knew no other children at the school when she started. I have been really impressed with the teachers and how they have been able to give her the time and recognition to develop at the pace she needs and wants to. I think the school is really changing and developing in a positive way and I look forward to being part of that."
“We chose Joseph Hood because of its friendly atmosphere and both my daughters love being here. The teaching is great and our girls have been challenged to achieve their best, while also taking part all sorts of fun opportunities and exciting events.”

“Joseph Hood is an AMAZING school. It's like being in a big family; all the staff (from the office, to the teachers to the Head Teacher) know every single child by name. My daughter wasn't able to say a single word in English when she started Nursery, but everyone was so lovely and welcomed her so warmly- in a blink she was talking amazingly. I couldn't be happier and I'm really looking forward to my son joining the school soon.”
“We chose Joseph Hood from Nursery for our son who is now in Year 4. As an early and enthusiastic reader, it was - and still is - important to us to ensure that he is in a school that engages and challenges him without compromising the importance of allowing creative and playful learning across the curriculum. We also appreciate the supportive and friendly community the school offers - my family is in the States, so we need a school that offers more than just a basic 9am-3pm day of lessons.”
“I would highly recommend this school. My children have various different needs and the school is quick to contact you, support you and have helped me and my daughter greatly. They are friendly, helpful and I feel happy that my children are safe in their hands.”
