Welcome to Bere Alston Primary School

The school is a large village primary of 187 children. There are 7 classes. Our aim as a school is to provide a warm, friendly atmosphere in a safe, caring environment, where children will be happy and successful. To achieve this, it is important that the school and home work together in partnership. This partnership is built through a regular dialogue between parents, child and school. We hope that you find us friendly, approachable and open. We value children as individuals and encourage them to become independent, achieving their full potential as learners and realising their responsibilities as members of a community. As this site grows, we hope you will visit it regularly and suggest other information that would be helpful. Safeguarding is a school priority
