has been a dramatic term with the completion of our new classroom
and consultation on change in age of transfer. Both these developments
will have a significant effect on Alexandra School. We are delighted
to see an increase in the number of places we can offer. From January
we will have 80 children in school not including the Nursery.
Our next campaign will be to replace the temporary structure
which houses the ASE classes and to move the ASE children to
purpose built permanent classrooms!
Alexandra parents responded with a resounding NO
to consultation from Harrow on change in the age of transfer. Harrow’s
proposals would mean we lost our oldest children—with Year 7 going
to secondary school. Alexandra’s Governors, staff
and parents all want the option of children remaining at
this school until the end of Year 7. Harrow Council decide on the
matter at the end of January.
Sadly we are saying goodbye to Debbie Brennan.
has been offered and has accepted the post of Nursery Manager at
a new provision being set up at St Joseph’s School.
Debbie joined us as Nursery Nurse in the 90s and has since
been an outstanding manager in the Nursery and lately, an excellent
teacher in the ASE place. I am sure you will join me in wishing
her well in her new job.
Thank you all for your support and donations at Jack and the Beanstalk.
Staff and children worked so hard, learning new skills
since the beginning
Debbie tells me that we raised over £350 for charities.
With good wishes for Christmas and the New Year
