William Alvey School Lincoln
Welcome to the William Alvey Church of England School
The William Alvey C.E. school is a large primary school with a small school ethos. In this school children come first and consequently all developments are driven by their needs. Our children have a strong voice in much of the schools development planning and as they pass through the school so the opportunities grow for them to assume more formal and influential roles. The roles of School Councillor, Team Representative, Junior Road Safety Officer and Eco Warrior are just some of the roles adopted by our older pupils.
The school dates back some 160 years on its current site but has been central to the education ofSleaford’s primary aged children since 1729. The William Alvey School has deep rooted associations with the church of
St Denys and enjoys a high standing within the town. Indeed, the status of the William Alvey as a Church Controlled school is central to its ethos and continues to shape its daily rituals, practises and routines.
The school may be old but every effort has been made to create a high quality facility fit for a twenty first century education. A beautiful stone clad exterior hides a modern facility which is subject to constant updates to ensure that pupils can access the best and most modern of facilities.
The school enjoyed a very successful OFSTED inspection in December 2006 in which it was deemed to be outstanding in all respects. This was further complimented by a church schools inspection which reached the same conclusion. The school now receives regular health checks to ensure that standards are maintained. Academically, the school sits above national averages and evidence shows that all children make good progress regardless of ability. The school has also achieved a number of awards. These include the Healthy schools award; Investors in People; Arts Mark Gold; The Inclusion Mark and a variety of other national standards.
Pupils attending the William Alvey school are drawn from all quarters of Sleaford as well as from some outlying villages. As a whole-school body our pupils are known for being very well-mannered and diligent. This is in no small part due to the children’s enjoyment of their time in school where our year group teams work tirelessly to create a rich and vibrant curriculum which emphasises basic skills in a creative context. The school offers and is committed to providing a curriculum which is stimulating and relevant to the needs of tomorrow.
