"Five years ago I handed my first child to the staff at Alexandra Park primary school as a terrified mother hoping and praying that they would care for her the way I cared for her, that she would be as safe with them as she was with me, that she would be treated well and listened to and that her safety would never ever be compromised there. Four years ago I realised that I could not have asked for a better school for my daughter, she felt happy and safe and was supported. Then last year Covid hit and I was once again terrified that nobody could keep my child as safe as I could and even worse I was about to send my baby off to start Reception and knowing him as I do was so incredibly worried as he was so young and may not understand and yet as I had done before I put every ounce of my trust into this school and every single faculty member who works here and I have not once had reason to doubt that decision. In a global pandemic in which none of us knew what to do, or how to act this school remained a beacon of hope, happiness and safety for my children and even when they were not in school they received immutable support from their teachers. In a year where everybody's lives were turned upside down you; Teachers, Teaching assistants, Dinner ladies, Head Teachers, Learning support staff managed to shepherd not only yourselves and your own households but hundreds of children and their parents through a Global Pandemic. So thank you to each and every one of you who have never given me a reason to falter in my absolute trust in this school."
"Every year I think this school gets better, and this year you have excelled! The attitude and commitment and positivity through these strange times have put parents and the children at ease."
"The school has given so much support to the children from the start of the pandemic putting their own lives at risk to keep the school open and making sure the children had what they needed for at home I can honestly say that I’m glad to be a part of the school."
"I have two children who attend Alexandra park school. The care and education they receive is always above and beyond. The communications from the headteacher and the teachers are always consistent, and we find the seesaw app a really useful source of contact. We are really impressed with Alex park and we can see that the schools values of care, aspire and achieve reflect in everything they do."
"My children have been coming to this school since 2006 and I always found it to be a really good school."
"I could not praise this school enough. It has been a fantastic place for both of my girls, not only to thrive in their learning but also as individuals. The care and love that goes into the teaching is outstanding but more than anything, you are teaching my girls the skills to care and give 100 percent to their learning at the same time. I have worked in schools for many years and have yet to find one that meets the standards of this school. In addition, the care and support myself and my family received during lockdown was above and beyond anything I could have hoped for."
"I have only good things to say about Alexandra park!! My admiration of teaching and support staff has grown especially during the difficult period when school was closed. We were so grateful of the support we received from teaching staff providing resources for home schooling. This helped us as a family to provide structure for our child whilst both parents were working full time from home (not an easy task!) The communication we have received has been exceptional throughout the whole period. It’s very evident that both children & staff safety has been put first in any decisions the school has made. I admire the schools ethos and values and as such have sent our 2nd child to the school this year who is now thriving in reception. Well Done Alex Park Team!"
"Thanks to all at Alex Park for the support, nurture and fun times over the last 7 years. I can honestly say my daughter has enjoyed every minute!"
"Well done Alexandra Park! Winners of Stockport Young Entrepreneurs two years running!"
"Well done to Alexandra Park for inspiring the children to spend more of their free time reading and letting their imaginations go wild!"
"It's fantastic that parents and carers get the chance to communicate with the school. I am extremely confident that I have chosen the right school for my son."
"The children at Alexandra Park are so confident! What a credit to the school and teachers" - Holly Tree Nursery
