“This is a highly inclusive and successful school which is seeking to improve still further and can offer valuable support to other schools.”
On 7th February, Prince Albert School had an Inclusion Quality Mark review to see if it would qualify as an Inclusion Quality Mark Centre of Excellence for another year.
Assessor Barry Carney, spent the day at school, meeting with staff and children to look at the progress we had made since the last assessment 12 months ago.
We are very proud to be able to say that we were awarded Centre of Excellence status again for another year.
We were sent a report following the review that you can read in full here but we just wanted to share a few highlights with you.
“In 2015, Ofsted noted that “Every aspect of this school’s work is exceptional” and it was evident from all that I saw on my visit, that this was an accolade truly deserved.
What was particularly impressive was the quality of provision for children with complex needs and the pastoral support afforded to all.
The tireless work to develop a secure, wrap-around and caring environment that promotes a good sense of wellbeing is to be applauded.”
“Pupils are very well presented in their smart uniforms which also serve to identify their involvement in the school through a host of pupil leadership opportunities.
Behaviour is excellent and there is ample evidence of the respect that pupils and staff have for each other.”

World Book Day takes place on Thursday 1st March 2018, and we would like to invite you to join us in helping your child to make the most of this special occasion.
This year, we are encouraging children to dress up as characters from their current whole class text. Parts of the costumes will be made during a prior Learning for Life lesson to reduce the workload for parents and bring the characters they have become engrossed with to life.
The class texts are:
Nursery: Each Peach Pear Plum- Allan Ahlberg
Reception: Supertato- Sue Hendra
Year 1: Jack and the Beanstalk- Mara Alperin
Year 2: Traction Man- Mini Grey
Year 3: Stone Age Boy- Satoshi Kitamura
Year 4: The Iron Man- Ted Hughes
Year 5: How to Train Your Dragon- Cressida Cowell
Year 6: The Wise Fool: Fables from the Islamic World- Shahrukh Husain
World Book Day celebrates the joy and value of books and reading, especially for children.
To help get them started on their reading journey, every child will receive a £1 World Book Day Book Token that can either be exchanged for one of TEN special £1 World Book Day books or used to get £1 off any book costing £2.99 or more. You can find out more about the books at worldbookday.com/books. Your child’s token can be used at most large bookshops and major supermarkets from Monday 26th February to Sunday 25th March.
We look forward to seeing everyone dressed up and celebrating reading!
