On Thursday 2nd October we hosted 11 school leaders from Stoke. The group included 2 Ofsted inspectors and Prince Albert was recommended to them by Andrew Cook, one of Her Majesty's Inspectors (HMI). They spent the day visiting classrooms, speaking to pupils and looking at work in books.
The feedback from our visitors was overwhelmingly positive and they were kind enough to leave their thoughts about our school. Please take a few minutes to read their comments:
"I have rarely observed such high levels of pupil engagement as those seen today at Prince Albert. The teaching is clearly addressing the personal needs of each child. This is evident from the highest quality work seen in books, on desks, walls and taking place as we toured. Pupils are confident, articulate, very welcoming and completely charming.
School Leaders could not do enough for our visiting party, everyone was available for our observations, questions and we were given invaluable information and advice which will be well used to improve practice in Stoke. Thank you so much for the privilege of visiting the school."
Christine Bray - Lead for Governance, Learning Services, Stoke-On-Trent Council
"WOW! Inspiring to see children with such a love of learning. Very impressed by the quality of play outside supported so effectively by the enthusiastic play leaders.
I observed every child in every class from Nursery to year 6 engaged in meaningful learning, with adults and most impressively in their independent learning. Thank you for your hospitality and kindness in opening up your school to us today."
Sarah Cumbo – Headteacher, St Teresa's Catholic Primary School

Stimulating learning environments ensure that all pupils are engaged and enjoy their learning
At Prince Albert Primary School we are very clear in our message that social deprivation, lack of parental support or any other negative influence outside of school is no excuse for underachievement. The school is located in the heart of Aston, in one of the most deprived wards in the country, and the majority of pupils who join us in nursery have a level of development that is well below that expected for their age. Over a third of our pupils have special educational needs, and almost half are eligible for the pupil premium. The vast majority of our children are from either Pakistani or Bangladeshi backgrounds.

To celebrate Culture Week at Prince Albert, Year 6 have entered a competition by the Royal Mint to design the new £1 coin set to be released in 2017. Year 6 thought about the best of Britain and used these ideas for their designs. Year 6 also added their own flavour to the designs.
