Welcome from our Head
A very warm welcome to Alderman Pounder Infant and Nursery School.
We may look like a traditional school building on the outside but inside, magical things happen. Our skilled, committed and caring team make a tremendous effort to get to know each child to enable them to grow into strong, independent, life-long learners, ensuring that the values we promote at Alderman Pounder are instilled in them all. Therefore, our school motto captures this aspiration:
Making a difference as we grow together.
Children, and their best interests, lie at the heart of everything we do and our vision for them is clear: we believe that every child who attends our school will be academically and socially equipped for success in their next stage of education and beyond, whether that be at junior school, secondary school, university or in a career of their choice.
Our dedicated team take great pride in enhancing the lives of the children we serve by offering the best possible learning opportunities. We accomplish this through our ambitious, broad and diverse curriculum which has a clear focus on English and Mathematics and has reading sitting at its heart. In addition, we celebrate the differences between each of our children, recognising their individuality and using this to enhance our strong personal development curriculum which we support through excellent pastoral provision.
We are a proud member of the Flying High Trust. Being part of Flying High allows us to benefit from a strong network of around thirty schools across Nottinghamshire, Nottingham City and Derbyshire who all work closely together to ensure that we are providing the best education possible for our children. Flying High Trust is one of highest performing Trusts in the country and, along with the other schools in the trust, we aim to continue to build on this to be the best schools in the universe!
At Alderman Pounder, we believe in the importance of a strong partnership between home and school and aim to develop a sense of security, interest and enquiry in children so that they may progress confidently through our school. Ultimately, and above all else, our priority is that your child feels happy and valued. Our aim is to ignite a child’s love of learning and inspire them to achieve their very best, ensuring your child leaves Alderman Pounder with high self-esteem, lots of independence, confidence and happy memories.
