Happy Half Term! All of the children have been amazing this term and should be very proud. They have worked extremely hard under the current circumstances and have adapted to a different way of school life incredibly well. Their cheerfulness and enthusiasm is still shining! https://t.co/ObHRvdhij0
Year 2 have been back to the 1960s this week as part of their 'Back to the Future' topic! It has been so interesting to compare fashion, technology and transport then and now. Here they are exploring some artefacts! What fantastic observational drawings too!
Year 4 have loved exploring the story of Charlotte's Web by E.B White this term. Lots of reading activities with the help of the Pawsome Piggies leading into some super writing! Amazing English Year 4! 🤩🕷🤩🕷🤩🕷🤩 #Reading #writing #English #Amazing https://t.co/KuGHGuUIsv
Year 4 practised lots of practical cooking skills to make Tudor Pottage this week (a vegetable broth thickened with oats and served with wholemeal bread). It was great to see the children broaden their taste buds and try something new! Well done Year 4! 🍲🍲🍲🍲 https://t.co/6Zg86hbM5n
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.
