Thank You!

Thank you to all the parents who attended the SRE talk this morning. What a good turn out! We had around 115 parents attend. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Netball Match Result

The children played against St Peter’s school on Tuesday. This time it was a home match. Both teams played really well and it was a ‘close game’. The score was 6-6. Player of the Match was Emma, who plays in WA (wing attack). Well done Emma! ūüôā

Football

Last week the football team won their first friendly match against Bernard’s Heath Juniors School. The score was 4-1. The children at Alban City School are doing really well so far with their competitive sports. Hopefully it is a sign of things to come as we enter leagues next academic year.¬†

We did it again!

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.

Netball Match Result

We are pleased to share that we had our first non-league netball match this afternoon against Maple Primary School. Both teams played really well, with Alban City School winning 7-5.  Well done to all who played and thank you to our spectators.

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 Closure

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.

Congratulations!

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

International Week

Thank you to everyone who helped make the week such a success.
