Admission Policy Consultation

We are currently consulting on some changes to our Admissions Policy 2020-2021.
If you have any feedback about these changes please email e.walton@alsagerschool.org by 11th November 2018 advising if you are a parent, staff member, member of the community or other.

 

Alsager School is consulting on changing it’s over subscription admission’s criteria due to a major increase in housing developments in the area which in turn is placing a huge strain on school places. As a town with only one secondary school and Alsager’s population set to increase considerably as more and more housing developments are approved, the governors are consulting on changing the admissions criteria to ensure the school can meet the needs of its local community. Even with the school increasing its pupil admission number by 30 students to 265 students in September 2019, the current admissions criteria means local residents who do not attend a current feeder school are potentially unable to secure a place at their only local secondary school. ‘Feeder Schools’ continue to be part of our over subscription criteria.

#LRC20

The old school library was transformed into the LRC (Learning Resource Centre) and officially opened on 23rd October 1998. The following activities are going on in the LRC week commencing 22nd October to celebrate its 20th birthday.

All week
Book Fair – we have a Scholastic Book Fair with loads of books and stationary for sale, students will need to bring in cash if they would like to purchase anything – no payment can be made through ParentPay.
Alpha Challenge – quick timed quiz for the students to compete against each other, and the clock.
1998 Memory Board
2038 Time Capsule
Book Tree – growing all the time with leaves students have completed detailing their favourite book.
Graffiti Wall

Monday
Year 9 Alsager Rotary Club Literacy Competition – all year 9 have written WW1 ‘Thank You’ poems and the shortlisted ones from each class will come to the LRC for a tea party at which time prizes will be awarded to the winners.

Tuesday
‘The Journeyman’ will be working with some year 8 in the LRC exploring the dystopian theme.

Wednesday
Cake Sale in aid of MNDA – the LRC will be selling cakes throughout the day to students and staff. There will be a MNDA Bakeit! quiz circulating to all form groups with a prize for the winning form.

We will also be holding a VIP party for some of our regular users, we are hoping retired staff who were involved in the transition will also be visiting the LRC.

Thursday
Slam Poet, Ash Dickinson, will be working with some year 9 & 10 students in their English classes.

Friday
Book Sale will still be on for all students who wish to buy something.
