School Description

Pupils are very positive about Alexandra School. They are actively engaged in their lessons and in lunchtime activities. They work well alongside each other. The school provides a wide range of learning opportunities for pupils. Teachers prepare interesting lessons and pupils achieve well. Pupils enjoy taking part in a variety of lunchtime and after-school clubs which enrich their experiences, including gardening, yoga, street jazz, karate and cookery. The whole school goes on a camp each year, which enables pupils to grow in confidence and maturity. Parents and carers said that staff are approachable and are like an extension of their own family. Pupils are well supported by staff. Teachers have high expectations for all pupils. As a result, pupils are well prepared for the move to secondary school. Pupils’ behaviour is excellent. All children understand the ‘golden rules’. They work to earn stars which are displayed outside the hall. The atmosphere in school is friendly and purposeful. Pupils feel safe because bullying is a rare occurrence. Pupils are confident that teachers will sort out any concerns that they may have.
