Welcome to everyone who has found our new website,
St Alban’s is a family school and our family is growing and developing into the future with increasing numbers on roll, indoor refurbishments and IT to support teaching and learning along with outdoor developments and new equipment to keep our children active! We have a dynamic team of staff, with many new and some long-standing, but all with a variety of skills and talents that combined offer excellent provision for the children of St Alban’s. Over recent years, we have achieved many successes including: high results in phonics, solid progress by the end of KS1, outcomes at the end of KS2 some of the highest in Doncaster, recognition for our bespoke and dynamic curriculum, our outdoor and active learning provision and the opening of our school nursery in September 2021!
We aim to build on these successes so that our children, starting with our 2 year olds in Easby Nursery class, throughout EYFS, KS1 and KS2, receive a rich core, life and essential curriculum with opportunities to suit all learners within a distinctive Catholic school where all children are nurtured, taught holistically, know they are loved and can achieve anything. Through forging and strengthening our partnerships with parents, carers, governors, the Parishes of St Alban’s and Blessed English Martyrs, Mexborough, the Denaby and Conisbrough communities that we serve, schools in St Clare Catholic Multi-Academy Trust, across our Hallam Diocese and in Doncaster, we believe that we offer something unique and something special for all our stakeholders, with our children at the very heart of all that we do.
Our January 2022 Ofsted inspection recognised how good the personal development and behaviour and attitudes of our children are as well as the strengths we have in our Early Years Nursery and Reception classes along with a good early reading provision. Our developing subject leaders and new curriculum will further enhance our children's outcomes across the subjects covered in our curriculum and everyone who knows St Alban's has witnessed first hand our rapid development and growing staff team as we have continued on the upward trajectory, expertly moving into the future, teaching our learners both at school and at home during COVID, in such an inclusive and dynamic way that most people wouldn’t think possible. Changes are inevitable and will continue to build on the great successes we have achieved so far in recent years. With the team of staff, the strength of support in our community and our most wonderful children, St Alban’s is a truly great school with an exciting future ahead of it!
