Welcome to Alverton School

 "Throughout the school there is a buzz of purposeful activity. Pupils of all ages show very good, positive attitudes towards school. In lessons they are enthusiastic and keen to contribute. They respond very well to lively and imaginative teaching; they are very well motivated and they enjoy their learning."  Ofsted 2004

Alverton School's principal aim is to consider children as individuals and to help each one develop into a person able to meet the needs of contemporary society.

We achieve this by providing a structured, well-balanced curriculum and a happy secure disciplined environment which gives opportunities for each child not only to acquire the basic skills but to develop the "whole person" - intellectually, socially, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Our whole emphasis is on quality experiences leading to quality learning within an inclusive framework. Close co-operation between home and school is essential and visits by parents are welcomed. We look at the education of children as a partnership between parents and teachers.

We are proud of our school, the children and the work we do and we appreciate the extensive support we receive from our parents, governors and the community.

To ensure high standards are maintained our procedures are kept under constant review. We are always ready to meet change and take new initiatives.




Alverton School will be a safe, secure and happy environment providing a challenging, dynamic and diverse experience to fulfill every child and adult's potential.

'Together We Learn'


Our aim is to help children realise their potential. We believe in the worth of each individual and see education as a preparation for life. At our school we believe that our first responsibility is to the children we teach. We adopt a philosophy of continuous improvement towards every aspect of the school’s work.


At Alverton School we aim to help everyone develop:

  • Lively enquiring minds, a love and enthusiasm for learning, the ability to question, argue rationally and think for themselves.
  • Encourage parents and carers to take an active role in their children’s learning and development.
  • The knowledge, skills and attitudes we will need in all aspects of life in a global technological society.
  • An appreciation of human endeavour.
  • A sensitivity and respect for the needs of other.
  • An understanding and appreciation of our multi-cultural, global and local society.
  • Feelings, imagination, creativity and a sense of awe and wonder.
  • A risk taking attitude to learning within a safe and secure structured environment.
  • The ability to work hard, both independently and cooperatively.
  • An understanding of the purpose of what we are learning and why.
  • Good relationships with the local and wider community.
  • A realisation of their full potential.
