Thank you for giving The Paul Lavelle Foundation the opportunity to deliver Fair Play to both Year 6 classes this morning. The children are a credit to your school and had great confidence answering questions and engaging in debate. They are well practised in their COVID hygiene and we were most impressed.  It was a lovely morning and the feedback we were given was great.

Visited for World Book Day 2020 and had a lovely morning reading stories and poems to the children, chatting about books and admiring the wonderful World Book Day costumes.  The children were beautifully behaved, interested and fun to be with.  Left lots of books behind in the library for them to enjoy.  Happy World Book Day!

Dear Ms Radley

Thanks so much for sending such wonderful children to the gallery today. I was very impressed by their knowledge, enthusiasm and ideas and only in year 2!   I am now expecting great things from this group with their Arts Award journey and I look forward to sharing their learning.  All the staff and pupils were great fun and I had a very busy and rewarding morning.  Please come again soon!

Dear Rock Ferry Primary School

Thank you so much for letting me know about the wonderful work you are doing to help Wirral Food Bank and Neo Café this year. I am very proud that a school in my constituency has put in so much effort to help others in the local area and I urge you to keep up the good work. I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and I look forward to hearing about the good work you undertake in the New Year.

With best wishes, Frank Field, MP

Had a great time writing, drawing and thinking about ways in which we can re-tell well known stories from different perspectives. Had some fantastic ideas - from a cow getting kicked out of the stable because he had chicken pox to a sheep being sheared by a shepherd so a baby wouldn't get cold. The children were fantastic. Amazing listening, happy to get stuck in, happy to stand at the front and tell their stories. Respectful, polite children who were engaged in the lesson from start to finish.

I would like to thank you for inviting me to work in Rock Ferry. I have had such a fun and creative week. The staff were all very supportive and positive and the pupils did an absolutely amazing job. I was really impressed with their dedication to the tasks set, and their willingness to support each other and perform their work. And, Stevo's Heroes worked so hard, giving up their breaks and dinner times to rehearse, and then produce a moment that I will never forge it - very special.
