Welcome

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our School website. 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.

Children have just one childhood; we believe their primary school experience should be nurturing and exciting. 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.

We hope that our website is useful and informative and we hope that what you see here will inspire you to visit us and see for yourself Alford's wonderful, nurturing environment.
