St. Alban’s is a warm, friendly school, where children are nurtured and thrive in a ‘family’ atmosphere with Christian values at the centre. Each individual child is important to us at St. Alban’s, and the children are at the heart of everything we do. Our children enjoy coming to school.
We are proud of the achievements our pupils make, and significantly high standards have been maintained over several years. Our focus is clearly on the learning within school and the community. As teachers and leaders, we continually seek to find ways of improving levels of performance and ensuring that no pupils underachieve.
We want children to leave St. Alban’s with a core knowledge of English and Mathematics, a specific knowledge of key concepts, the ability to apply skills and continue learning independently and a systematic approach to enquiry – a set of lifelong skills, attitudes and values that will guide and inform their learning. Ensuring that our curriculum is exciting and relevant is also important to us, and many of the initiatives we are engaging in this year seek to fulfill this aim.
Valuing our links with parents, the church community, the local community and our very strong links with our Trust and partner school, Flanderwell Primary, is a key aspect of our values and ethos, and we know we are stronger because of the firm links we have made. In a society which is increasingly showing signs of isolation and disintegration, we value our role as a school in the development of pupils’ sense of responsibility, belonging and ownership of their own school and local community.
“No child will underachieve”.
