We have a very exciting few days in the Annexe. We took delivery of 10 eggs on Monday and this morning the first chick hatched! We invited year 1 parents in after school and 2 more hatched right on cue. The children have loved watching the changes occur and the delight on their faces has been wonderful. All classes have been invited over to see the chicks and parents are very welcome to bring their children to visit them after school if they'd like to. Watch this space for more developments 🐣

Leadership Programmes, by Mrs Muddy

Date: 18th Mar 2024 @ 11:13am

A range of staff from across all the schools in our trust and beyond, have recently completed our bespoke ‘Step into Leadership’ programme. We delivered this over 5 months for two cohorts based on geography, one for schools in the Nantwich area and the other around Alsager. Colleagues from both the primary and secondary phases explored leadership issues ranging from vision, leadership styles, how to develop others and many more. A huge thanks to Ms Bentley, Mr Whitehead and Mrs Martin for all their hard work in designing and facilitating the programmes. Feedback from all the staff involved was very positive.

“Thank you for such an amazing course.”

“A big thank you. It has been really useful to dedicate some time to learn and apply something directly to my role.”

This is another great example of our trust of schools working effectively together to raise standards and investing in our brilliant staff.

Word Guerilla, by Mrs Muddy

We were thrilled to welcome David Bowden, the Word Guerilla, into school today to inspire us with poetry performances and workshops. He used looping, beat-boxing, rapping and music to get every single child involved, with plenty of laughs thrown in for good measure! Every class has had the opportunity to create their own poetry with him and we have had our eyes opened s to what poetry can be. @wordguerilla

Alsager Highfields Design Technology Workshops at Alsager School, by Mrs Muddy

Date: 11th Jan 2024 @ 8:23pm

As we have recently covered, a group of year 5 & 6 pupils from Alsager Highfields completed x3 design technology workshops at Alsager School during the autumn term. The sessions covered food technology, textiles and resistant materials (woodwork). The carousel of workshops finished at the end of last term and they have been a great success. Comments from the pupils include.

  • “Design and technology was a really new and exciting experience.” (Ottilie)
  • Shianne, Arthur, Hayley and Erin enjoyed using the pillar drill when making their toolboxes.
  • “I loved everything about it.” (Scarlett, Rosie, Lillia)

In the textiles workshops, children printed and stitched their own pencil cases. They also developed their own fabric painting and marking skills for a wall hanging that is now up at Highfields. The design was inspired by the works of Edwardo Paolozzi and Wassily Kandinsky. I am sure you will agree from the photos that it looks fantastic!

All the children were a delight to work with and thanks must go to Mrs Birchall, Mrs Sample and Mr Preston for running the workshops. This has been a great example of two schools in our multi academy trust collaborating together for the benefit of our young people.

Published Admission Number (PAN) at Alsager Highfields Primary School, by Mrs Muddy

As the admissions authority, The Cornovii Trust is consulting on the proposed reduction of the Published Admission Number (PAN) at Alsager Highfields Primary School from 45 to 30, from September 2025. This would mean that the maximum number of children who are admitted from September 2025 in reception would be 30, with a maximum of 30 in year groups 1 and 2 and a maximum of 32 in years 3 to 6.
