After-school Clubs

At Alexandra we provide many opportunities for parents to visit and become part of the school community:

Gate Gossip is our parent group, which meets at least once every half term. The aim of the group is to encourage parents to come along and meet each other, discuss different topics and learn about all the different activities that go on at school. The group has a friendly and informal approach, with plenty of tea and biscuits on hand! We often invite guest speakers along to give us useful information about parent entitlements or parenting issues, e.g. sleep, healthy eating, behaviour. We run workshops for parents, for example on healthy cookery or developing IT skills. We also organise family trips to the local library in Rayners Lane.

Family Learning Sessions run once a week for blocks of five weeks each half term. Parents are invited to sign up for these sessions with their child. Each block of sessions has a theme, e.g. photography, storytelling, cookery. The sessions run at the end of the school day and are a great opportunity for parents and children to learn together. Families value the warm and friendly atmosphere of these free sessions.

Parent Activity Sessions are organised by the class teachers once per term. Parents are invited in to class to take part in an activity with their child. This might be anything from a reading session to a science and engineering challenge! These sessions allow parents to see their child learning in class and to meet other parents of children the same age.

As a way of extending the services offered by Alexandra School, we also organise a range of after-school clubs for the children. Click on the After-school Clubs link to the left to find out more.
