Alston Primary School is a small family orientated school. Our core values are: resilience, respect, honesty and community and our ethos is always to try our best at whatever we are doing.
Our Pupils: they are central to everything that we do; we want them to be happy at school, to be confident, respectful and supportive of each other, enthusiastic to learn, and for them to thrive, achieve and succeed.
Our Families: the contribution they can make to their children’s learning and progress is invaluable; we do everything we can to make them feel welcome and to help them fulfil their key role.
The Wider Community: we are keen to further develop our links with local businesses and the voluntary sector, widening the range of opportunities available to our pupils by tapping into local people’s skills and experiences whenever possible.
Partnership Working: our Federation exemplifies the importance of partnership working; on top of this, our on-going development is underpinned by links with other schools through the CASL and LASL as well as the Local Authority and its various agencies.
Our place within the UK: we want children to appreciate the uniqueness of the environment in which they live; but we also want them to be in sympathy with British values and to be aware of and excited about the opportunities presented to them as citizens of the United Kingdom.
