Welcome to West Alvington Church of England Academy
We are proud to be part of the Learning Academy Partnership, which is a family of schools, working together within a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) with a Church of England Foundation, where we are committed to putting children first in all we do, think and say. We are passionate about ensuring that your child will achieve their very best in a nurturing environment. At West Alvington we want every child to ‘learn to soar’ - we believe that there is no ceiling to what our children can achieve and we know that by working in partnership with parents and by modelling a real love of learning we are providing the best possible conditions for each and every one of our children to flourish and ‘soar’ - creatively, spiritually and academically.
West Alvington Church of England Academy is a thriving village school and is part of a group of local schools (All Saints' Thurlestone C of E and Charleton C of E Academies) who form the South Hams Hub of the Learning Academy Partnership.
Our Christian Values are threaded through all aspects of life and we want our pupils to uphold British values such as respect for the law, understand the role of democracy and to respect those who are both different and similar to ourselves.
Our academy is often described by parents and staff as being like a caring, close family. Parents and visitors to our academy praise our warm and friendly atmosphere. Working together is key to the success of your child. This of course includes our crucial partnership with you as parents. We recognise that education is a joint effort between home and academy, and communication between the two is a key strength, resulting in the strong, caring relationships we enjoy across both the academy family and the trust family.
West Alvington is a Church of England Academy in the Diocese of Exeter. Recognising its historic foundation the Academy strives to preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles and practice of the Church of England and in partnership with the church in the parish and the diocese.
Being mindful of its Christian Foundation, the Trust Board aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. This will be explicit in Church Academies. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promotes Christian values through the experiences it offers to all its pupils.
We are really looking forward to welcoming you to our academy family - there are amazing times ahead for us to share together and we can’t wait to make a start!
