Welcome to Aberford C of E Primary School. We are a small village school situated in the heart of Aberford Village just behind St Ricarius Church. The building dates back to 1716 when it was a tithe barn and in 1817 we were established as a national school. As a result the school buildings are full of character. Our school is increasingly popular. There are currently 100 children on roll from Reception through to Year 6 who are organised into four classes:
- Class 1 Reception
- Class 2 Year 1 and 2 children
- Class 3 Year 3 and 4 children
- Class 4 Year 5 and 6 children
Our school receives strong support from governors, parents and our PTA. They are regularly involved in school activities. We are very proud of our school and hope that this website will help us to share all of the wonderful things that happen here. Everyone was involved in shaping our aims and values including children, staff, Governors and parents.
Aberford C of E Primary School aims to enable each individual to be caring, capable and confident in an ever changing world.
We respect each other and are proud of each others' achievements. We foster a love of learning and a determination to embrace new challenges. We are creative and enthusiastic in all our teaching and learning and work together in a safe and happy environment, where Christian values are placed at the heart of all we do. We are a family.
Three things will last forever - faith, hope and love - and the greatest of these is love.
