I am writing with regard to the article concerning Buckswood School.

After reading the article I do not think it gives a fair reflection of the school despite the recent Ofsted report. Both of my children attended Buckswood from the age of 11 and I have to say that the children’s safety and wellbeing was always paramount and I must stress that the school were always very helpful and prompt in dealing with any issues that arose. I would recommend this School to any prospective families based on my experience and dealings with them.

Mr Sutton works very hard to make sure that the school is a friendly and safe environment for the children to learn and live in and this becomes very obvious whenever you visit the school to meet him and see the children in their school surroundings. My children were always very happy and I am extremely grateful for the education that Mr Sutton and his staff provided to my family.

I do think that it would be helpful to prospective families to hear a testimony from a parent whose children have spent many years at the school.
