Children, parents, carers and community partners are warmly welcomed to Lady Alice Primary and Nursery Class. Children’s needs and interests are at the heart of everything we do and we will work with our families to ensure that the time children spend at Lady Alice Primary and Nursery Class is both enjoyable and productive. Through high quality education we aspire to encourage and support everyone in our school community to reach their full potential in all areas of their lives.
Staff in Lady Alice Primary are a highly motivated, dedicated team who work well together and with other agencies to ensure the best outcomes for you and your children. They have accessed a wide range of continuing professional development opportunities; several teachers have successfully undertaken the Uplifting Leadership course. Both Teaching and Support Staff ably take on roles where they lead the learning within the school.
Our Parent Partnership works closely with parents, staff and pupils to support our continuous improvements throughout the year. There are many opportunities throughout the year for parents and carers to become involved in the life and work of the school; all stakeholders are invited to help make Lady Alice a great school.
Since 2015, Inverclyde has been part of the Scottish Attainment Challenge. The Scottish Attainment Challenge aims to achieve equity in educational outcomes by focussing on closing the poverty related attainment gap. In August 2017 Lady Alice Primary and Nursery Class joined the third cohort of local focus schools. This is an exciting time for our school and staff are keen to engage with the wide range of opportunities available.
Through Attainment Challenge funding we are fortunate to have a newly appointed Nurture Teacher who will further develop nurturing approaches throughout the school.
Our community has worked together to make a great success of our 18 months decant to the former St Stephen’s High building, we overcame the challenge of distance to ensure that we retained our community spirit, but, since August 2018 we are absolutely delighted to be back together with our Nursery Class, where we belong, under one roof in a refurbished building which meets the needs of our learners, our families and our staff.
