Aberford C of Primary School is situated in the picturesque village of Aberford on the Eastern outskirts of Leeds. Our school is tucked away behind St Ricarius church towards the top of School Lane. Most of our families walk to school and, as we don’t have parking spaces for parents outside school (unless you have a disabled badge), we would ask that any cars are respectfully parked on the main road. We also have bike racks in school so that the children can cycle to school or come on their scooters. Please ensure that they wear a helmet.
Our Grounds and Building:
Our school has lots of character. The main building houses our Reception and Year 1/2 classrooms, our meeting room and a school hall which is used for many activities including collective worship and indoor PE as well as doubling up as our dining room. Across from the main building we have our Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 classrooms. Our library is housed in the building behind the main school. This also offers an extra space for additional learning activities throughout the day. We have a playground with a quiet seating area, a boldering wall and an all purpose surface. We also have a field at the back of the playground with a trim trail for the children to use, thanks to funds provided by our PTA to maintain this.
The view from our playground, across the fields of the Parlington Estate and across to the wind turbines in the distance is a beautiful and calming outlook and we feel that our children are very privileged to be educated in such a welcoming setting. Our PTA work hard to maintain the gardens and raised beds and improve the garden areas used by our school.
