We have been fortunate during April and May 21 to have one of our former pupils return to Alford Primary as a trainee teacher. Victoria is training at the prestigious Bishop Grosseteste University, in Lincoln, in order to gain a Primary Education degree and fulfil her ambition to become a teacher.
"Some of the staff have changed, the friendly community and positive ethos of Alford Primary is the same as I remember from my time here".
Indeed, Victoria, said that one of the inspirational Alford Primary Teachers was the reason she started thinking about teaching as a career! Victoria has very much enjoyed her time back at Alford Primary and we wish her every success in her teaching career – you never know we may see Victoria back again leading the class!
Our very own IT technician was once a pupil at Alford Primary School. Peter went on from Alford Primary School to study at John Spendluffe Technology College. Following this he attended Boston College, where he gained a BTEC Level 3 qualification in Computer and Software Development before re-joining Alford Primary as an IT Apprentice. Now a fully-fledged IT Technician, Peter is a valued member of the Team working throughout the school in a varied role supporting pupils, teachers, parents and office staff with IT.
