School Vision Statement
As a small school, at Aveton Gifford we are able to celebrate each pupil’s uniqueness. We aim to create a safe and stimulating environment whereby our children experience challenging, creative and exciting learning opportunities; raising our communities’ aspirations for all. Pupils learn of their place in their rural and coastal setting and comparatively the wider world.
We aim to strengthen our community and church links for the benefit of all.
Our unique outdoor environment including an enhanced play area, swimming pool and forest school, enables children to explore their physical and social capabilities. Our indoor learning environment challenges pupil’s personal academic growth.
Our Christian distinctiveness is based upon our school values of friendship, perseverance, trust, joy, thankfulness and compassion which underpin how we aim to nurture the whole child’s personal growth whilst striving to Flourish, Aspire and Achieve academically.
