Welcome to the Summer 2011 edition of Newsline

Looking back on 2010/2011

This has been another year where we can be really proud of the children’s achievements. Looking back over the school calendar, I see the regular highlights to the school year— “Countdown to Christmas” in December, spring term lit up by the children’s performances in the Harrow Dance Showcase and lately, the successful Outdoor and Adventure week, including Year 6 visiting France again.

At this time of year all the class teams put up a display of their Golden Moments. If you get the opportunity, have a look up and down the corridors to see the pictures. They demonstrate an amazing range of work and a rich variety of educational opportunities. There are photos of school trips, of the children with visitors to Alexandra and of children simply enjoying their time at school. But I particularly like those photographs which show individual children concentrating hard on their work.

I want to take this opportunity of thanking all the staff for their hard work and creativity.

Please come to the school barbeque on Thursday 21st July. The school prizes for 2010/2011 will be awarded and we will celebrate the end of the school year together.

This page will be updated with a list of Prize Winners, soon!

Camille Cole has completed her graduate teacher course and was awarded the grade of Outstanding. Well done Camille. It has been a long journey for you and we are proud to have you on the teaching staff for 2011/2012


School Leavers

We say good bye to sixteen children in Year 6, as they move on to secondary school. We wish them luck and will miss them all.

Barry Nolan, our chair of governors, will be stepping down at the end of this year.
Barry has contributed energy and wisdom to the Governing Body as well as organising annual work parties from Barclays Bank to do community service with us.

We also say goodbye to five members of staff:

Kavita and Emily, who have worked with us this year as graduate teaching assistants, are going back to college to get their Post-graduate Certificate of Education, which will allow them to become teachers.

Norma West and Charmaine Bromfield have been class teachers at Alexandra for seven and eleven years respectively. Norma is retiring at the end of this school year, while Charmaine is taking up a new job at a special needs school nearer to her home. We wish Norma a happy retirement and wish Charmaine luck with her new job.

Finally, we say goodbye to Sue Stalley. Sue has worked at Alexandra for fourteen years and was Deputy Head until just last year, when she took semi-retirement. At the end of this school year Sue retires for good (although with luck we will tempt her back with the role of Chair of Governors!) It is almost impossible to put into words how great a contribution Sue has made to Alexandra School. Children and staff alike, have the fondest memories of Sue as a teacher and a colleague.

School re-opens for the new school year on Friday 2nd September

Have a great holiday!

Dennis Goldthorpe, Headteacher
