Welcome to the wellbeing page for parents.
Our vision is to develop a school community where children can enjoy a welcoming, secure, happy and healthy environment, where all members can develop self-confidence, self-esteem, self motivation, independence, compassion, tolerance and understanding of others.
At Alston Primary School we support the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils and staff. We have a supportive and caring ethos model of respect and kindness, where each individual is valued.
