Feedback from parents

Autumn Term 2019

At the end of the Autumn Term, the parents of children that attended ‘Get Set Go’ were asked to share the benefits of their child attending the club and other thoughts. Here are some of their comments;

“Child A always loved cooking and took a great interest in food. School have gone ‘above and beyond’ in ‘Get Set Go’. Child A loves the games and raves about the snacks too!  Thank you for all your hard work and effort.”

Child B has knowledge of healthy food consumption. They have an awareness of sugar/fat quantities in food and the importance of extra physical exercise. We are really happy with the club and its intentions.

“Child C has made new friends. He has more confidence with trying new foods and helping in the kitchen. He often comes back asking to buy the new food item or make the food he had at Get Set Go. Thank you for your dedication. Child C loves this club.”

“Child D has improved his physical abilities and stamina. He is more aware of healthy eating and a balanced diet. I really appreciate teacher’s effort on this.”

“Child E comes home talking about what he tried. He often surprises me by saying he likes a new vegetable now. It is also easier to get him to eat veg at dinner time (obviously not all the time). Child E talks about healthy behaviours, the things it is healthy to eat and about being active. He’ll be dancing and will say this is good exercise.”

“This club has given child F the opportunity to learn the importance of food groups and express her views on what she likes and doesn’t like. Child F gains much knowledge learning about the different food groups. She loves talking about what she has made and how she made it. She has a lot of enthusiasm for baking and cooking. The simple recipes are so easy to follow and are very child focused. She has had the opportunity to try ingredients and food that she hasn’t at home. Thank you so much for all your hard work.”

“Child H has grown in confidence socially and in her kitchen skills. She now regularly helps with dinner preparation and cooking. She loves going to Get Set Go, and it is her favourite night of the school week.”

“Child K has an awareness of healthy living and eating. He understands why we need to eat healthy snacks. Thank you for your amazing hard work, thought, preparation you put into this fantastic after school club. It really has become something child K enjoys, He was really disappointed the week it was cancelled so I think that reflects how much fun he has!”

“Child L is recognising different food groups and learning about new recipes and snacks both at school and at home. She makes her packed lunch every day.”

“Child M has become more aware of healthy snacks, enjoying making things and overall enjoyment of the club again. Child M is a bit more open to trying new things now. Thank you again for another great club. Child M loves Get Set Go, she has been proud of herself for trying new things and joining in. Thank you very much.

“Child O thoroughly enjoys coming to Get Set Go and likes eating the food they make.”
