Welcome to Alverton Community Primary School

At Alverton, we have a highly committed staff team who are dedicated to supporting and guiding your child’s development. We place vital importance on the physical and emotional well-being of our pupils and believe that children are better learners when they feel happy and secure.

Alverton has three core values which underpin all aspects of school life. These are ‘Care, Trust and Honesty’. Our vision is that all children achieve their potential and develop into caring, responsible and hardworking citizens. At Alverton, learning is fun and pupils are enthused and supported to achieve their very best.  This is encapsulated in our school motto, ‘Together Everyone Achieves More.’

Our whole school theme this year is ‘Alverton’s Year of Writing’ which builds on the success of last year’s ‘Year of Reading’. We aim to inspire and enthuse children to write for pleasure, to demonstrate their learning across the curriculum  and to communicate effectively with others.

I am delighted to be Acting Headteacher for the Spring term as we prepare for the arrival of our new and permanent Headteacher, Mr L Matravers, in April.

At Alverton, we truly value the partnership between home and school and have an ‘open door’ policy, which means that parents and carers are welcome to visit or contact our school anytime. I am always able to make time to talk to parents and carers, so please do not hesitate to get in touch.

I look forward to welcoming you to our school.

Mrs K Lacey, Acting Headteacher
