Alpington and Bergh Apton CE VA Primary school is a family of unique individuals; loved and valued by God and each other.
Our school vision is “Let Every Light Shine”. This means that together we create a vibrant, supportive and encouraging learning environment where every member of our school community is valued for who they are, and nurtured and enabled so that they can flourish. We aim for excellence; in the people we can be and the things we can achieve.
Our Alpington values are the foundations of everything we do. We are curious about the wider world, thoughtful about the impact of our actions and resilient to try hard and again. We are global citizens; empathetic towards and respectful of others in our Alpington family and beyond. Our courage and aspirations for ourselves and our world mean that we face the future with hope and confidence.
By living out our values in faith, love and action our own lights shine brightly, and we enable others to shine too.
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Matthew 5 vs 14 – 16
