Hi, I just wanted to send an email to say a massive thank you for everything staff are doing to ensure a safe reopening on 1st June. The amount of work that has gone into planning is phenomenal and I wanted to express my gratitude to all staff for your dedication to doing your best for the pupils under such pressurised circumstances, and for providing so much information to enable parents to make an informed choice about sending children back to school. Anya will be back on the 1st of June as I trust you to do your very best under the circumstances, you have my full support. Additionally I just wanted to say thank you for all the work you have compiled and sent out each day for home learning. Although I've not been able to get through absolutely everything every day, Anya has found the work engaging and enjoyable and hopefully this will make the return to school easier. I hope you have a wonderful half term next week and manage some relaxation. Kay
Hi Claire , Please could you pass this message on to the lovely children at Landywood School: Thank you all so much for the most amazing, colourful and beautiful paintings you all sent in for the staff and patients at Walsall Palliative Care centre. The pictures were shared between the St Giles In Patient Unit and the Palliative Care Services within the building and are making our walls and doors look beautiful! They are definitely bringing a smile to everyone who sees them and are appreciated so much! Thank you all, you talented little stars!

We have received news today that Mrs Thaker will be retiring after an amazing 26 years at Landywood. We wish her all the best and hope she has a wonderful retirement, she has been such an asset to the school and will be greatly missed. I am quite sad she won't get to teach Lucia but so happy Amelie benefited from her vast knowledge and she will always be remembered by Amelie as one of her favourite teachers and the one who gave her the pen licence!
I was hoping to catch up with you at the end of last week but unfortunately missed you, so just wanted to send an email to thank you for allowing me to undertake work experience at Landywood last week. I had a wonderful week, with pupils and staff both proving very welcoming and friendly. Pupils in particular were so polite, well behaved and joyous in their learning which was fantastic to see. The atmosphere and culture throughout the school was so warm and positive too - it was great to be part of. Alex Gardner
Can I express my thanks to you and your staff for making last weeks PGL trip an amazing event for Year 6. Alex came home buzzing with excitement to tell us everything he enjoyed and learned during the week. I appreciate it must take a huge amount of work to organise but assure you it’s worth it for the life skills the children develop and the pure fun they have. On a wider note, you have made great improvements to Landywood since taking on the headship. In my view, the standards of classroom based education have improved and the children have a greater variety of activities that prepare them for life as well as developing their knowledge. Communication with and involvement of parents has also improved, as has the appearance and feel of the school itself. Alex loves school - although I doubt he’ll feel the same in high school - so thank you for creating that environment.
The kids and staff from Landywood Primary School have been an absolute pleasure to work with. The children are always enthusiastic about any activity and always put 100% into them. Aside from the activities, the children are respectful to staff and show great manners and are always in a good mood. There are a lot of funny chracters in the group which made my time with them even more enjoyable. Most of the time I spent laughing and joking around with the kids. I wish them the best of luck in Year 6 and believe they will all do well in the SATS. This week has been a ripper of a week!!! Peter
I am glad the staff enjoyed yesterday's training. It was very evident that they had taken on board the work on positivity, resilience and relationships that I spoke about last year. The school looks great and which child would not feel excited to arrive and walk into an enchanted forest! Equally, the 'painted heads' spoke volumes about how the staff are putting the resilience work into action. And this year I was incredibly impressed by their enthusiasm and creativity when I introduced new concepts to them for developing engaging lessons and techniques to help make those lessons memorable. The polar bear on walkabout has to go down as the highlight! Gary Toward Decisive Element
I just wanted to send an e-mail to say a great big thank you to you/your staff for bringing along such an exceptional group of young people to take part in the Schools Activity Zone at The Birmingham Classic. We hope that your students had a fantastic experience and that the day has inspired them to think about/engage in tennis more than before. Please feel free to share your brilliant images online using the #tennisforkids Kind regards Natalie Manca-Wilcox Participation Development Partner
Mr Clewer I felt compelled to write to you and complement you and your staff on giving our daughter Amelie Bartlett a wonderful journey through Landywood, she has been nothing but happy there and it will be with a heavy heart when she leaves on Friday. You have given her a wonderful start in life and we will always be gratefully. This is reflected in her brilliant SATs results 120 in her reading test , wow! I have already thanked Dawn Burrows for her hard work. I also think it is lovely all the end of year celebrations you have organised for our children. The school is a credit to you all. Regards Michelle & David Bartlett
Dear Mr Clewer I am writing to say how impressed I was with the concert given by the children of Landywood Primary School on Friday 12th July at Great Wyrley High School. It is a wonderful idea and experience for the children to perform in a proper performing space, with tiered seating and the stage lights and all the technical things that are not possible in a primary school hall. What an amazing sight to see so many young musicians from one school performing together on a whole range of instruments. It was incredible to see so much talent and commitment from everyone children, staff and visiting teachers. Your vision to offer the children a range of instruments to choose from and then learn for the year paid for by the school is such a fantastic educational opportunity and the quality of learning and performing was outstanding. Whether steel pans, glockenspiels, ukulele and ‘doods’ or the follow-on lessons strings, every child was involved and displayed great listening skills, confidence and concentration. The addition of recorder group and choir run by school staff was super and made the whole thing complete, with every child in KS2 involved. Thank you so much for inviting me to the concert. I enjoyed it tremendously and was delighted to hear the children perform. Please pass on my congratulations to the children and your staff and I wish you all every success with your music making in the future. With best wishes Jennifer P Mason (Mrs) Music Hub Manager-
