Prince Albert gain Inclusion Quality Mark Centre of Excellence status for a third time.

Prince Albert have been successful once again in achieving their Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM) Centre of Excellence status. 

The IQM provides schools with a nationally recognised framework to help schools evaluate and measure how they are performing. Ofsted defines an educationally inclusive school as one in which the teaching and learning; achievements, attitudes and well-being of every young person matter. When schools are successful they receive external validation through the IQM of their Inclusive status. 

Following a review of provision on 12th February,  Joe McCann (Director of Inclusion Quality Mark-UK ltd) said "Prince Albert Primary School continues to move from strength to strength in terms of its inclusive practice and I am of the opinion that the school fully meets the standard required by the Inclusion Quality Mark Centre of Excellence review."

Report highlights

  • In all of the classrooms visited, children were engaged in their learning activity and the atmosphere across the school was very calm. 
  • The nurture group provision is impressive and it is to the credit of leadership and the staff involved that it has been established so successfully
  • Staff have worked hard to create an effective learning environment within the confines of a grand Victorian school building
  • The new PSHCE curriculum is comprehensive, holistic and driven by strong values
  • Staff have worked hard to make the building welcoming and reflective of their values

Exploring Loose Parts

In Nursery we encourage children to lead and develop their own learning and develop their own ideas and ways of working. To help with this we have introduced ‘Loose Parts’ to our environment, these are materials that can be moved, carried, combined, redesigned, lined up and taken apart. Our children use their knowledge, creativity and imagination to create numerous creations. 

Mahek has created a pattern, during this activity Mahek uses mathematical vocabulary to talk about her learning.

Mahek – ‘I have a pattern, that’s all the same things on this line. Some are big and some things are small. I counted them; I couldn’t fit anymore in because there was no space’.

    

'Together for a better Internet’ - Online Safety Week & SID 2019

Monday 4th February 2019 will mark the start of our PACT Online Safety Week across all of our schools. Throughout the week your child will be learning about how to stay safe online whilst in school and at home. We will also be participating in the globally celebrated Safer Internet Day on Tuesday 5th February.

Safer Internet Day 2019 will be celebrated globally on Tuesday 5th February with the slogan: ‘Together for a better Internet’.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved and join a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.

Welcome from our HoS

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website. I hope it gives you a flavour of our school and is helpful in answering any questions you may have. 

Prince Albert is a caring, inclusive and creative school that is committed to raising aspirations. We hold many nationally recognised awards including: Gold primary sports award, quality mark for health and safety, NAACE ICT mark, 360 e-safety mark and the science quality mark award. We are an inclusion quality mark centre of excellence and a National Support School. In addition we are a pioneer school for class VR (virtual reality headsets)

A happy child will achieve their full potential, and Prince Albert is all about creating opportunities for every child to succeed.  We set high expectations, academically and socially.  We want all of our children to go onto secondary school ready to further develop their love of learning and with a solid foundation in the core skills, enabling them to become confident, successful and responsible citizens of the future.

We were graded as outstanding by Ofsted in February 2015. The report stated ‘Every aspect of this school’s work is exceptional.’ I believe that the success of a school is down to the staff. Our staff are caring, hardworking and committed to ensuring the best outcomes for all children.

I feel very privileged to lead this fantastic school. I am very proud of our amazing children, supportive families and dedicated staff. 

If you are joining Prince Albert, I look forward to welcoming you, if you are already with us, my door is always open and if you are an ex-pupil we would love to hear about your successes.

Melonie Davies

Head of School
