Welcome to Alexander First School and Foundation Stage
I am very pleased to welcome you to Alexander school.
Whether you are looking for a place for your child in Foundation stage or First school you will find that our children are happy and enthusiastic learners with a desire to achieve!
Our belief is that all children are entitled to learn in a warm and respectful environment where they enjoy coming to school and feel valued by their peers and the adults at the school.
All staff at Alexander are passionate educators who develop a good knowledge of how each child learns and build on their individual starting points to develop progress towards achieving their individual goals.
Our nurturing approach develops children’s self–esteem and confidence and our outdoor learning activities build their resilience. Together these enable our children to become independent and collaborative learners who show pride in their successes and have the capacity to praise the success of others.
Visitors to the school remark on the calm learning atmosphere throughout the school and our children are praised for their behaviour as well as the interest and enthusiasm they show when they are out on school visits or engaged in activities with other local schools.
Please come and visit us, to experience for yourself the calm, welcoming atmosphere where happy, excited children learn together in a respectful and tolerant environment.
There is more for you to read about what Alexander school has to offer in ‘About Our School’.
I look forward to showing you around our school,
Mrs. Gill Young
(We were judged as a ‘Good’ school by Ofsted in 2013).
