Alford Academy Parent Council have a collection of pre-loved uniform items to pass on to families. If you need anything please come and visit us on August 10th at the Alford Campus Entrance between 4 and 6 pm. All items are free of charge but any donations to Parent Council would be appreciated and would go towards funding our outdoor gym/seating project. We have numerous small and large v neck jumpers as well as a few medium sized items. We also have a small selection of girls and boys’ blazers (for S4-S6 pupils). If you still wish to donate items (which should be washed prior to donating) there will be a drop off box at the collection table. Please see flyer for further information.
We hope you are well. Please see the poster below about our School Uniform Recycling Project. We cannot believe that the end of term is near and no doubt our cherubs will have outgrown some, if not all of their school uniform. Our aim is to reduce waste and we will be most grateful if you could support our School Uniform Recycling Project by either donating clothes, coming to our tabletop day(s) if you need clothes and by spreading the word/sharing the poster with your contacts who may be interested in supporting this project.
Thank you for supporting this project.

Please note the meeting of the Alford Academy Parent Council on Monday 23 March is cancelled.
Thanks to all parents who have come along to my informal conversations this term. Great discussions and feedback.
A key theme coming through these conversations and the feedback from Parents’ Evening surveys is ‘How can we better acknowledge and share the work of the Parent Council’.
What we are doing? … improving access to information about the Parent Council and their priorities. Information can be accessed on the website and school blog and we will also trial e-mailing Parent Council information directly to parents/carers.
Watch this space.. more to come in the future, we are actively working together with parents on this.
Next Parent Council Meeting is on Monday 23 March 2020 at 7pm (please note change of date). All welcome.
The minutes from the last meeting of the Parent Council held on the 21st January, are now available on the blog here.
