The school continues to place great value on its links with the wider community, beyond the confines of the school and these are wide ranging.
Please note: whilst Alton Park Junior School wishes to bring local clubs/events to your attention, we are not affiliated with these and parents/carers are responsible for carrying out their own safeguarding enquiries.
