We are pleased to announce that the netball team won their match by 3-2 this afternoon against St.Peter’s School.
St.Peter’s hosted the match and we were impressed by their good sportsmanship. They also chose Scarlett as our player of the match, who plays goal attack. Thank you so much to the parents, aka paparazzi! – what a great turn out! Your support means a lot to the children.
On Wednesday 17th January from 6.30pm – 7.15pm we will be hosting an E-Safety Meeting for parents. All parents are welcome but please bear in mind it will not be appropriate for you to bring children with you. We hope you will be able to join us and take the opportunity to share key information and tips on how to help your child to stay safe when they are online. If you navigate to our Parents page from the ‘About Us’ hyperlink at the top of the page you will find a handout and other useful information on E-Safety.
School will be closed on Monday 11th December. The decision has been made this evening as a number of staff are unable to get into school due to the heavy snow and as more is forecast for this evening. School will reopen as normal on Tuesday 12th December unless we notify you otherwise.
Last week we received a letter from the Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP, Minister of State for School Standards. It is to congratulate us on our outstanding achievement in the 2017 phonics screening check with 95% of pupils reaching or exceeding the pass mark. This places Alban City School in the top 8% of all primary schools in the country. Please do have a read, we are very pleased to have received this recognition. Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP letter 11.2017
All the staff at Alban City School would like to thank you all for once again nominating us as Primary School of the Year. We are honoured to have made finalists and really appreciate the time you have given towards making the nominations. We are all proud of our pupils and the school community that we are so lucky to work within. Thank you for your continued support.
Last week supported by our parents and the local community we held our third International Week. With a ‘Food’ theme, children took part in workshops within school and in some of our local shops and restaurants to learn about, taste and cook foods from different countries. The week was rounded off with a ‘Food Court’ in the school hall for the children to share with their parents samples of foods from the many countries represented. Thank you to everyone who helped make the week such a success.
