Our mission encapsulates ‘how we do things around here’; the way we work today and endeavour to work tomorrow.
Our School Values
Alveston CofE Primary School continues to seek to be a place where all children are given the opportunity to reach their full potential intellectually, socially, physically, creatively, emotionally and spiritually in a supportive, safe and stimulating atmosphere. We strive to give every child the opportunity to shine whilst developing the qualities of responsibility, self-discipline, independence and tolerance.
All children are encouraged to be members of a caring Christian community.
Rooted in the Bible
Our school vision, mission and values all stemmed from the work we have done with our community. We asked our children, parents, staff and governors to share with us their favourite bible texts which they felt should be the foundation of our education at Alveston.
We were inundated with suggestions and as a team, we shortlisted our favourite six. We took these to our community once again for our community to discuss and vote on their favourites. Three different texts and quotes held much importance for the Alveston Family. Our vision, mission and values are therefore rooted in these texts.:
- How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver. (Proverb 16:16)
- Whatever is hidden away will be brought out into the open and whatever is covered up will be found and brought to the light. (Luke 8)
- I have come in order that you might have life – life in all it’s fullness (John 10:10)
"Alveston Primary is a warm and welcoming church school, where pupils are provided with a successful, well-rounded education. The school's aim of 'Achieving at Alveston' is well supported by the creative curriculum and the strong spiritual, moral, social and cultural provision in particular." (Ofsted 2016)
