Year 1 had a very exciting visit from the Police @lincspolice today! They really enjoyed finding out about the role of a Policeman / Policewoman and had a look inside a police car. Even the adults tried on some some uniform too! #policecar #thepolice https://t.co/neToCGipt2
Look at the fantastic pop up books that Year 4 have been busy creating as part of their DT work. The books are all about the famous French Wire Walker Philippe Petit who walked between the two twin towers in New York City. Super work children! #newyork #cities #walk #create https://t.co/EjuvROBBFB
Year 5 have had a very busy day today cooking Flapjack! They took a basic recipe, modified it by adding extra ingredients and then learned how to make it! They all agreed that the finished Flapjack tasted delicious! Yum Yum! #recipe #cooking #cook https://t.co/GEdVtWJ8Ex

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.
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.
