“We were pleasantly surprised by the uptake and retention of our parents/carers with regard to the English & Maths course. It is clear that this course appeals to our families and is something that they have been looking for. I believe that this has been so successful because of the professionalism of the tutors, their sensitivity to the needs of our families and making the sessions accessible to all. The feedback from the parents has been fantastic and I cannot recommend this course highly enough. Many thanks to JM RET for providing this service to our school. It has been a real asset in developing our parental partnerships.”
