Chair of Governor's Welcome
Welcome to our new look Alveley Primary School website for 2023. It is designed to provide a wide range of statutory and more general information about the school and also illustrate the kind of activities which help our pupils learn and develop throughout the year. We hope you will enjoy looking through it and find it useful and informative.
I continue to be impressed by the enthusiasm and hard work of our teachers, teaching assistants and support staff across the school who are committed to ensuring that all our pupils are making the kind of progress which will equip them with the skills and knowledge necessary to make the most of their educational future.
Last year saw pupils across the country benefit from an uninterrupted return to a normal classroom experience with face to face learning. At Alveley our comprehensive ‘catch up’ programme saw pupils making accelerated progress, exemplified by 82% of our Year 6 pupils achieving the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Maths when statutory tests resumed in June 2022. This was our best ever figure and in the context of 59% of pupils nationally reaching this level is a great testament to the quality of our teaching and the application and hard work of our pupils.
As governors we also monitor the excellent pastoral support focussed on the social, emotional and mental wellbeing of the pupils and in particular of our most vulnerable children and families. At the heart of this is our school ethos which values all pupils as individuals, encourages a strong sense of belonging to the school community, strengthens their personal development and builds their resilience.
The Local Governing Body at Alveley is a dedicated and knowledgeable group of people who are very familiar with the operation of the school and have a real commitment to the quality of education offered to our children. Their support and enthusiasm enhances and strengthens the systems and policies we follow as we continue to move forward.
The school is a member of the TrustED CSAT Alliance, a Shropshire based Multi Academy Trust. The governing body of Alveley is made up of Trust appointed governors, staff governors and parent governors.
