Super Science in Year 6 today! Look at the fantastic switchable circuit that a group of children devised - it is a quiz board about Ancient Egyptians! They even put Mrs Ross to the test to see if she could answer correctly to make the bulb light up! #super #lightup #science https://t.co/HTkKl2qAuh
The School Council wanted to collect food to distribute at local food banks this Christmas. Look at some of the food items that we have collected so far. What a kind and thoughtful idea of the children! #christmas #foodbanks #happyholidays https://t.co/WuA53OrmgJ
EYFS have had a wonderful Christmassy day at @RandFarmPark today! We fed the animals, had fun at Santa's Music School, learned how to be an Elf and decorated biscuits with Mrs Claus. We also visited Santa and his reindeer through the magical forest! #santa #elf #farm #animals https://t.co/mI25IVXCiW

Our Aims, Values & Visions
Through a rich and exciting creative curriculum, extra-curricular activities and close relationships with other local schools, we are able to provide a high quality education which meets the interests and needs of each individual child.
One of our School rules is to be happy and have fun. We believe children learn best when they are happy and engaged in a stimulating and relevant curriculum.
Children have a voice in our School. We encourage them to tell us if they are unhappy about anything or if anything makes them feel unsafe. This is embedded through assemblies, PSHE lessons and is part of our School ethos. We regularly survey our children to ensure that they feel safe.
Joining Our School
At Alford Primary School we are committed to doing everything we can to ensure that children settle into their new surroundings as easily and happily as possible.
We work extremely closely with our local pre-schools and are part of the Lincolnshire Transition Project, where our puppet, Louis, is used effectively to help children with the transition to School.
Our Lincolnshire Local Offer shares services and events for children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) and their families.
It includes advice about health, education and social care for:
- children and young people from birth to 25 years old with SEND.
- parents and carers of children with SEND.
- professionals working in health, care and education.
- providers of services for children and young people.

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 share your views by completing Ofsted's 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.
