Teacher’s Evaluation Forms: Written Feedback

“This was one of the best activities I have ever experienced, in 30 years of teaching. The writer was excellent…The children were 100% involved and are still talking about it now.  Excellent experience – will definitely book a writer again”  Annette Williams, Rock Ferry Primary School

“The work provided by the writer was outstanding. Their dynamic approach was most successful in engaging and challenging students' approaches to poetry… I felt, and the other co-ordinators agreed, that this was one of the most successful creative writing and arts residentials.”  Irene Dyer, Gifted & Talented Co-ordinator, West Derby Schools cluster

" I was particularly pleased as the writer showed the children first draft copies of published poems. They demonstrated not only the importance of editing work but in maintaining ideas too.”- Halsnead Primary

 "This was our first time working with The Windows Project and certainly won't be our last. Everything went very smoothly and took a lot of the stress from my shoulders! - Denise Stanton, Penwortham High School, Preston

“One of the best educational visits I have known.  The artist, as requested, shared a traditional Japanese tale before engaging children in simple origami work they learnt as a child. They then progressed to more difficult work, which all were able to complete” AV Murphy, Holy Angels Primary School, Kirkby

“ The writer was a brilliant storyteller and the children really enjoyed working with them during the day. They used lots of techniques to involve the children in their stories and sessions.  The boys were particularly motivated and all children produced some excellent poems using techniques I will adapt in future lessons” - RJ Thomas, The Brow Primary School, Runcorn  

“An excellent day! The writer engaged the whole school with their performance, from KS1 to post 16.  A number of our older pupils commented to the writer how much they had enjoyed the performance and thanked them individually.  The workshops were also very successful, with even some quite reluctant pupils listening and participating in the sessions. The writer was very confident working with complex pupils and delivered a programme appropriate to a wide range of abilities and ages.” Debbie Baird, West Kirby Residential Special School

"Charismatic, engaging and entertaining. ….. One of the best days of my career! Thank you” Belinda Ludlow, Blue Coat School
