To the staff and students of Tattingstone CEVCP School

A huge WELL DONE for taking part in


on Saturday 9 March 2019.


We just wanted to say a big thank you from everyone here at Snape Maltings. We really enjoyed having you here to perform in the Snape Maltings Concert Hall, and hope you had a brilliant day!

We’d love to see you all again so do look out for other opportunities here at Snape Maltings.




Testimonial from 'Celebration of Music' at Snape Maltings, March 2019


Dear Mrs Derrett


I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the performance your pupils gave at Saturday’s concert at Snape. It was a real treat to see such young children on the stage, performing with great aplomb and not a sign of nerves. 


It was just a joy to watch them perform with such confidence and enthusiasm as well as to a high quality and with great stage presence and discipline. I loved their demonstration of signing and their ability to keep it up and sing at the same time was particularly impressive.  Congratulations to all concerned.


At a time when music education in schools is in such peril, the commitment of you and your staff to such a venture is so heartening.  It really lifted my spirits.


I am a regular at Snape and a great admirer of the work of Lizzie Woods and her team.  I appreciate that getting emails out of the blue from people you don’t know is a potential issue for a school, so as you can see, I have copied Lizzie into this email – she will vouch for me if you need someone to do that.


Best wishes


'A Snape Regular'

My child could not hold a pencil properly at the start of the school year. He now writes very confidently (Reception parent).


Teachers have always kept us informed of his progress.


The whole school seems to have caring ethos. All children from all years look out for one another and help and comfort one another.


The school has a lovely family atmosphere where all pupils look out for each other across all year groups. All the teachers are very friendly and approachable.


My child is very happy at Tattingstone, loves going to school and is making amazing progress, and is encouraged to reach his full potential – I couldn’t ask for more!


It has been the best experience of my child’s school life. The care and attention has been exemplary. I couldn’t agree more that he has made good progress. He has caught up after being very behind (parent of a child who joined Tattingstone at the beginning of Year 6).


Absolutely agree that my child has been well looked after – he is a different boy almost and been nurtured to his true potential.


I have recommended the school already – over and over!
