We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA). This is an amazing achievement of which we are very proud. We know that children achieve best at school when their families are involved in their school life and the more supported a child feels at home, the more effectively they will learn at school. We will be continuing to enhance the way we work with you to help our children achieve their best. The latest report can be found at the bottom of this page.
We are also proud to have achieved:
The Eco-Schools programme provides a unique opportunity that empowers pupils to lead change within their school and have a positive impact in their wider community. The programme encourages pupils of all ages and abilities to work together to develop their knowledge and environmental awareness. Independent research into the Eco-Schools programme in England found evidence of the positive impacts on pupils, including increased confidence, development of leaderships skills, improved pupil well-being and behaviour and greater motivation at school.
To become an Eco-School we followed a pupil-led programme that involved the whole school and the wider community, before being assessed for a Green Flag Award.
In July 2015, our school won the Green Flag Award for the second time.
“This school is astonishing; you would so want your children to go here. The Eco warriors are totally dedicated, bright, hardworking team with children clamouring to join.”
Pupils from various primary schools around Stockport were given £400 through Stockport Council’s School Improvement Service to set-up and run a small business. They did their own market research and designed, produced, advertised and sold a product. Each child had a role within the ‘company’ such as finance director or marketing manager and it was fabulous to see such enthusiasm and commitment from everybody involved. Around 200 primary pupils took part the final of the Stockport Young Entrepreneurs of the Year competition at Stockport Town Hall. Children at Alexandra Park Primary won first prize in the competition. They ran a company called KS2 Inc, producing a range of goods branded with their own invention - Crazee Creatures. We won this award for two successive years in 2014 and 2015.
The children received their trophy from Steph McGovern, the lead business presenter from BBC Breakfast, who described their efforts as “very impressive”.
Alexandra Park Primary made it to the final of the opportunity to win £10,000 to support a project to raise standards in their schools. Nearly 400 schools entered, 18 were short listed and three prizes totalling £30,000 were awarded at our gala prize-giving in May.
The school has been awarded “School Participation Sports Awards” in recognition of our excellent participation participation in school sport. This has included participation in several competitions at local and regional level in a variety of sports including tag rugby, athletics, swimming, lacrosse, gymnastics, football and dodgeball.
