Here you will be able to find all the information you need to know about our school.

Alderbury and West Grimstead Church of England Primary School is a ‘single-form entry’ school. Classes are limited to a maximum of 30 children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 (like all schools), and classes in Years 3 to 6 are usually around this size, too.

If you want to apply for a Reception place in 2019, please check our Admissions procedure under Key Info on the tabs above.

Every year the governing body will review and publish information concerning the Alderbury & West Grimstead school admission policy. This will confirm the maximum number of children to be admitted to the school as a whole, the Pupil Admissions Number (PAN) which is currently 30 and explain how places will be allocated.

If there is anything you would like to know that you can’t find here, please contact us. We would love to talk to you!

What’s Been Said

“Thank you so much for my warm welcome. I had a great time. AWGS is a lovely, lovely school. Smiling seems to be the default setting.“


‘There’s a lovely family feel to the school, it feels as if it has been here for ever.’

‘I recently spent time at School, in my professional capacity as a Library Systems Trainer and Cataloguer. I was e impressed by all that I encountered at Alderbury. A great and positive atmosphere, caring and helpful staff who were always willing to help, however busy they were, and pupils who were a real credit to the school.’

‘Pupils are very reflective and think deeply about issues such as ‘Peace’ ‘Values’; this confirms strengths in their spiritual, moral and social and cultural development’

Safeguarding Online Payment

Purple Mash is an award-winning website for nursery and primary school children. It enables children to explore and enhance their knowledge in a fun and creative way. Its key features are:

•To deliver fun and engaging lessons for children from 3 to 11 – right across the curriculum

•To raise academic standards through creativity

•To increase parental engagement

This school has adopted Purple Mash. To find out more click the logo opposite.

Communication via emails and phone calls will be dealt with during school hours.  The most effective way of making contact with staff remains to speak with them at the school door or to contact the school office. There is no expectation that staff will check their emails when at home during the evening or at weekends.  I hope this helps.


Trussell Trust Christmas Shoe Box Appeal

We are approaching the last week for our Shoe Boxes to be gathered before the Trussell Trust collect them next Friday 23rd November. We have collected 12 boxes so far, last year we collected 62! Please consider supporting this worthwhile cause and put a box together over the next few days.


Parent/Teacher Consultations

Parent/Teacher Consultations

Thank you to parents for coming along to our Parent/Teacher consultations this week – 97% of parents had appointments compared to 81% last year, which is great to see. It is so important for our children’s success that we have the full support of parents in this process so thank you and well done!

 

Road Safety Week

Next week is Road Safety Week with the theme being ‘Bike Smart’. Children are encouraged to cycle to school whenever possible but it is very important that they are safe and road/traffic aware. Cycle helmets must be worn.


Boundary Coffee Shop at The Village Hall

Open every Friday morning from 9.00 am till Noon for tea/coffee and homemade cake. Drop in for a chat – it’s far more comfortable than the school gate! All profits go to support activities in the village – including the school.
