Message from a happy Yr 7 Parent at Springwest

Home / News / Message from a happy Yr 7 Parent at Springwest

It was lovely to receive this message from a happy parent of one of our new Yr 7 students at Springwest.  Her daughter is supported by the Arc.  It means a great deal to us all to have such positive feedback from our parents.  Thank you for letting us know how your children are doing.

“I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at Springwest Academy especially all the staff at The Arc. for making my daughters transition into year 7 as stress less  as possible, in the first few weeks they always tried their very best to make sure she was supported and her needs are met, the communication is excellent, this was very important to me as I was able to relax knowing she is happy within  herself and growing in confidence. I am extremely happy with my choice of sending her to Springwest Academy  I can already see a massive change in my daughter she is developing brilliantly and learning .

I have been very impressed with the support from The Arc. It is an extremely welcoming safe place, educational, stimulating, and a place where she feels understood and can have head space!! all of this done with an exceptional amount of care and sensitivity. It feels  good knowing you understand her needs and she feels the staff are all very approachable and care about her as an individual.”

A huge thank you to you all!!
