Message from Mr Waiting
Dear Parents and Carers,
In this final newsletter of the term I wanted to write to thank you all for your support, commitment and encouragement this year. It has been a memorable start to my time at Alexandra but I am so proud to be the head teacher of the school and grateful for the help and kindness I receive from our community.
This week we said goodbye to our Year 6 pupils. We had four wonderful assemblies outside in the playground where the children shared their reflections of being at Alexandra, recalling memories of teachers, school trips and, in particular, the famous ‘Vegan Camp.’ The children also put together a brilliant and highly entertaining ‘lip sync’ video, illustrating their enjoyment at school and the friendships that have formed in their time here. As our first Year 6 cohort, I am so proud of all they have achieved and I know how fortunate their secondary schools are to be working with them. They will be missed.
We are also saying goodbye to Ali Gowe, deputy head at Alexandra. Ali has been at the school for sixteen years working with children as a class teacher but also an instrumental school leader, helping to oversee the change from an infant to a primary setting. She has had a huge impact on our community and will be missed by staff, parents and pupils. We wish her the best of luck at Surbiton High Prep.
Next week we are looking forward to welcoming the children back in Years 2-5 for their transition days. This will be an opportunity to see the class teacher but also for your child to meet their teacher for next year. The timings and arrangements for this have already been shared with parents but if you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the staff team at Alexandra. This year more than any other they have had to go above and beyond to meet children’s needs. They have worked incredibly hard to provide home learning opportunities whilst simultaneously working in new year groups in different classrooms. The teachers, support staff and administrative team are a credit to the school and I am lucky to work with them.
Have a wonderful summer and I look forward to welcoming everyone back in September,
As we are now approaching the end of the school year, and in the absence of normal transition arrangements to new classes, there will be presentations added to the website each week, covering staffing changes and arrangements for next year, so that the children informed of all that is taking place at Alexandra. We hope that these will help the children feel better about concluding their current school year and look forward to September when they will be in their new class. You can find the presentations here.
These are best downloaded to a laptop or PC and played on slideshow, where the audio will play automatically on each slide.
