Alverton School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. To achieve our commitment, we will ensure the continuous development of robust safeguarding processes and procedures that promote a culture of safeguarding amongst our staff and volunteers.

Our Library

At Alverton, the children enjoy our beautiful, woodland-themed library.

The library provides a warm and welcoming environment that inspires, informs and transports all our children from our youngest to our most proficient readers.

We want the books in our library to make our children want to read, and to continue reading, throughout their time at Alverton and beyond.



"The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives. She went on olden-day sailing ships with Joseph Conrad. She went to Africa with Ernest Hemingway and to India with Rudyard Kipling. She travelled all over the world while sitting in her little room in an English village."
