Message from Mr Waiting
Dear Parents and Carers,
We have had a fantastic week at Alexandra with our Year 5 pupils finally being able to attend the school residential at Grosvenor Hall in Kent. The children embraced the opportunities to abseil, rock climb and swing on Jacob’s Ladder, showing great confidence and determination. They were also a credit to the school in the way they supported and encouraged each other at every opportunity, consistently showing our school values. I also want to thank the staff team who accompanied the children on the trip, giving so much of their personal to provide such a memorable experience.
This week I have been pleased to visit classrooms with the rest of the senior leadership team and see the learning taking place. I have been impressed with the quality of behaviour across the school and the children’s engagement with the curriculum. It is pleasing to see the consistency in place within all classrooms regarding our approach to teaching and learning and the children’s depth of understanding related to their topics.
Next week we have parent consultations taking place. I would strongly advise all families to sign up for an appointment if they have not already done so. The meetings are of such value in discussing how your children have started the academic year and the social and academic progress they are making. All of the sessions will be take place on Google Meet for parents’ convenience.
Have a great weekend everyone,
