Head's Welcome

 

‘Success is a journey we take together.’

It gives me great pleasure on behalf of all the staff, children, parents and governors to warmly welcome you to our website. Alveley Primary is part of The Bridgnorth Area Schools' Trust. We have capacity for 120 children and a growing Nursery.

It is our aim to ensure that we give the children of the school the opportunity to develop and grow into the citizens of the 21st Century! Using our extensive school grounds, spacious classrooms and exciting learning environments, we believe that we provide our children with the best chances to progress academically, whilst upholding the highest of expectations.

We are immensely proud of the resilience and attitude that our children display towards their learning. We believe that by giving them the opportunity to develop, they will become the citizens of the 21st Century.

Whilst we place a great emphasis on standards of Maths, Literacy and other core subjects, we also aim to develop the whole child through our creative curriculum. Children at our school are enthusiastic, confident and independent learners, who achieve well both academically and socially.

Our School Council plays an active role in our school, where the voice of the child is paramount.

We have a range of extended school provision for children, including a breakfast and after school club.

Alveley Primary School prides itself on being fully inclusive, with high expectations and aspirations for all pupils.

If you would like further information about any aspect of our school, or you would like to arrange to visit us, please contact the school office at the address, telephone number or email as shown in our contact details.

Dear Parents, Carers and Friends of the School

Alveley Primary School is now in its third academic year as a member of the Bridgnorth Area Schools Trust (BAST) and a great deal has changed since it joined in November 2016. The 2018 SATs results saw the academic attainment of our pupils well above the national average, a tremendous achievement for pupils and staff working successfully together. The Trust continues to invest in the fabric of the school and its grounds and in improvements to teaching resources, equipment and technology.

Towards the end of 2017 the Governing Bodies of two of Bridgnorth’s largest primary schools, Castlefields and St Leonards voted to join with Oldbury Wells and Alveley as members of B.A.S.T. With the three primary schools serving over 700 pupils there is now a wealth of expertise to enhance teaching and learning and continue to raise standards.

The excellent SATs results provide a secure foundation for future development of a rich and engaging curriculum, ensuring all pupils have a well-rounded education and enjoy the diversity of school life. Pupils already participate in a wide range of sporting and outdoor learning activities and there are strong community links including the local church and the Severn Valley Country Park.  We are also grateful to the Friends of Alveley School for their support, both financial and practical.

We are continuing to update this website as a reference point for information about the school but also to give a glimpse into school life throughout the year. We hope you will find it useful and informative.

'Windrush Generation'

June 21, 2019

This week Oak class have been finding out about the ‘Windrush generation’ – migrants who came to Britain (from 1948 onwards) from the Caribbean. Pupils examined a range of primary and secondary sources to find out about the immigrants’ experiences, which were not all positive as many faced prejudice and racism. This led to discussion about racism, prejudice and equality in post-war Britain.

Mental Health Awareness

Mental Health Awareness

On Friday we held a Mental Health Awareness afternoon in school, marking the end of Mental Health Awareness week. We began by sharing a clip in assembly ‘Talking Mental Health’. We talked about the range of feelings and emotions which we may experiences and what we can do if these feelings become too big. Through school the children had the opportunity to choose from a range of activities which they felt would help them relax and unwind at the end of a busy week. The children enjoyed working with peers from all classes. We enjoyed sensory activities, mindfulness colouring, peer massage, Lego, yoga and reading for pleasure.
