Our aim is to provide pupils not just with a body of knowledge but with the skills required for a lifetime of learning, to prepare pupils for integration into the wider community, able to enjoy and participate in life as contributing adults.
Alfriston School provides a holistic environment that recognises the need of the individual in order to secure the best outcomes for adulthood. Our ethos is routed in Learning for Living covering key areas of: Engagement, Organisation, Independence, Risk Taking, Resilience and Social Interaction.
We aim to provide:
A curriculum to build skills for life-long self-esteem, confidence, team work, social interaction and the protection of physical and mental health to meet the individual needs of our school community, providing relevant education and experiences, and the attainment of qualifications where appropriate.
Independence at all ability levels to ensure all pupils become young adults who can find purpose and engagement within their communities, through employment or other means.
