I was blown-away by the support and efficiency of the staff at Alexander Mcleod. Delivering NSPCC assemblies and workshops was an utter joy. The children are incredibly behaved and were engaged throughout our important safeguarding sessions with enthusiasm and passion.
Look forward to our next visit in 3 years

To all staff at Alex McLeod
Thank you so much for being great guardians for my child. She has grown to enjoy learning which is an amazing feat by no means. Thanks to the wonderful staff for being amazing especially during a difficult time. My child has taken away some great memories. We wish you all the best in the future.

Thanks to the whole foundation team for being so accommodating during my observations this morning and last week. You have had a significant number of children with very complex needs joining the school this month and I have been so impressed with how the foundation team have pulled out all the stops to ensure their successful transition into primary school. I was particularly impressed with everyone’s ‘can do’ approach –pulling together so well as a team, and coming up with such creative solutions and ideas. It really feels that there is a focus on each child’s strengths and interests with everyone working hard to focus on successes and small steps of progress. All of your new children look so settled and at home and each of the classes feels so positive and welcoming.
What a lovely school
With thanks and very best wishes

'Just like to say a huge thank you to all the hardworking, dedicated staff working over in EYFS. After my visit last week I observed some outstanding inclusive practice. The staff are working above and beyond the call of duty. The lunchtime provision being offered to support the AEN children is amazing, showing that at Alex McLeod we really are an inclusive school. These staff really are a credit to our school which is why I'm recognising them for it.'
'The production was brilliant, thank you to everyone of the people who played a part in all of it. The kids were fantastic! What a shame we are losing our wonderful music teacher, good luck to her, but a big big loss for Alex McLeod.'
'I just wanted to let you know how much my husband and I enjoyed the 2 sports days. They were both very well organised and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The competitive element was clear but there was no aggression or one-up-manship. Please pass on these comments to Josie and the team as we know it takes a great deal of effort and energy to organise these events. It was also lovely to be back on Bostall Heath which somehow gives it a true community and family feel. Thank you again'

'An exceptionally strong sense of purpose permeates the school. This is underpinned by a determination that all pupils do as well as they can, and is evident in the rapid progress pupils make, often within challenging circumstances.'
