Welcome to the Autumn 2013 edition of Newsline

Alexandra School’s Christmas Charity:

Suzy and the School Council met earlier this term to discuss which charity we would support this year. Once every class had voted, the popular choice was Text Santa. Text Santa raises money and awareness for six UK based charities: Age UK, Barnado’s, BeatBullying, British Heart Foundation, CLIC Sargent, and Help the Hospices. Please contribute at least £2 for each ticket.

Every year we sell a new school mug. This year has been a period of some considerable change for Alexandra, becoming an academy and changing heads! So our mug design was inspired by the phrase that sums up Alexandra, regardless of any changes: Learning Together. The winning design was by Ahmed Mustafa Maihanwal. The Mugs cost £4.50. All proceeds go to our Christmas Charity.

Please be generous in your contribution to the appeal and buy one or more school mugs—they will make lovely Christmas presents. This year we have also chosen to put Ahmed’s design on a travel card wallet, perfect for holding your Oyster card. Travel card wallets are just £1.00.


Message from Head of School

In September we welcomed 17 new children and several new members of staff. We also became an academy and joined the Eden Academy Trust. Lots of changes but still, at heart, the same Alexandra School! Now we can look back over a busy but successful autumn term. It already feels as if our new children and staff have always been part of our school.
We are all looking forward to coming together for the Christmas Show on Wednesday and then our yummy Christmas Lunch on Friday!
On behalf of all the staff at Alexandra, I would like to wish our children and families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
We will see you all again on Monday 6th January!
Best wishes


Parent and Family News

It has been great to see so many parents visiting school this term, for a wide range of events. Parents have been invited in for class assemblies (which you can still watch on Fronter) and for class cookery activities early in the term. The cookery theme continued with Family Learning, which ran for five weeks. If you have the opportunity to sign up for Family Learning next term—do! Families who take part are always very positive about the sessions.

We’ve held various Gate Gossip afternoons and workshops this term, discussing topics like home school communication, transition to high school, Signalong and reading. Last week saw our wonderful Table Top Sale, organised by Jan and her band of parent helpers.

We are currently planning our parent and family events for next term, so if you have any ideas or requests, do let Jan know. We have a request for you!

As has now become tradition, we would like to serve some mince pies and mulled wine (or fruit juice) before the Christmas Show on Wednesday 18th December. The school will provide the drinks, but we would like your help with the mince pies. We have provided a link to a simple mince pie recipe. If you have time, it would be great if you and your child could make some mince pies, then send them in to school by Wednesday 18th (in a box with your child’s name on). Baking is a lovely activity to do together! If you would prefer to bake something else festive-gingerbread biscuits perhaps - then that would be lovely too.

Fronter News

We hope that you have all got into the habit of checking Fronter regularly this term, to read the weekly class newsflashes, watch any assembly videos and find out what is for lunch! If you’ve been away from Fronter for a bit, do check it out. If you have any questions or suggestions about Fronter, send Georgie an email at
