'Learn Well



A very warm welcome to Alford Primary School’s website. We are a thriving school community where high aspirations and a caring family ethos are at the heart of what we do. At Alford Primary School we pride ourselves on our proven ability to ensure all our children are happy, safe and reach their individual potential. We are a busy and thriving School where 'a love of learning' is truly evident from the moment you step through the door.

Guided by our clear values, Governors, staff, pupils and parents all work towards our principle ethos – to learn well, have fun and be safe.  At Alford Primary School, we know it is both our duty and privilege to help children make the most of their precious childhood years, building a firm foundation for the rest of their lives. The children are at the heart of our curriculum which is designed to excite, challenge and support every child, to find strengths and to build aspirations.

Our home, school partnership is one of exceptional importance to us as we firmly believe that this is the key to ensuring successful learning for your child. Read what our parents say and what our pupils say about us.
We hope that our website is useful and informative. Visits to our School are always welcome and can be arranged by contacting our office staff. I will meet with all new parents and children personally and I will be proud to take you on a tour of our school.

Parent View

Your views about our School are important to us. If you are a registered parent / carer of a pupil at Alford Primary School you can click HERE to share your views by completing OfSTEDs online survey, Parent View.

We send out our Parental Questionnaire annually and always get an overwhelmingly positive response. Last year from the many returns we received nearly 100% were either 'strongly agree' or 'agree' There were very few 'neither' responses and this reflected the fact that parents had no experience of the issue covered in the question.

It would be really helpful if parents / carers could reflect their views on Parent View.
