As Governors, we have been sharing our views of what makes Bernards Heath Infant and Nursery School special; we have been talking about our aims and our values.  The Governors were keen to seek the children’s views too, so two Governors met with School Council in December. It was wonderful to hear the children speak so positively about their school.  When asked to describe how they feel at school the children used the words “happy”, “awesome”, “safe”,” excited”, and “proud”.  They explained how the teachers made learning fun and interesting.  The children talked with enthusiasm and pride about their learning and told us about their ‘Learning Heroes’, they explained to us that they don’t give up and they keep practising.  Science, cooking, looking at books in the library and playing were some of their favourite things to do at school. Their respect for one another came across clearly, they said they expected to be treated kindly and that Bernards Heath was a very friendly school.  We heard that “If people weren’t nice it would be the worst school, but it’s not like that at all…It’s the best school in the universe!”
