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.

Aberford Children’s Ethos (ACE) committee meets regularly to think about and develop how we show that we are a church school in everything we do – from collective worship to how we treat each other day by day. They are a very active committee and have been the driving force behind many positive developments, reporting back to the Governors' Ethos Committee about their monitoring and impact.
Collective worship is a special time for pupils to reflect upon their life experiences and to seek out answers to ultimate questions as far as their intellectual and spiritual capacities will allow them.
Collective worship at our school endeavours to encourage the development of these areas in every child. In our celebration worship, we have an opportunity for the individual child to celebrate his or her social and academic achievements, and a time to foster the positive values held at the school, the local community and the wider world.
Parents do have the right to withdraw their children from collective worship. As a school, we encourage parents to talk to us so that any concern can be discussed to avoid misunderstanding.
