Our Aims, Values & Visions

Learn Well

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.

Have Fun

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.

Be Safe

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, to effectively help children with the transition to School.

If you would like your child to attend our School please read our Admissions Policy. Please note that all admissions are administered by the Lincolnshire County Council Admissions Service.

Parent Feedback

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.
