Welcome to Aberford C of E (VC) Primary School

On behalf of our pupils, staff, governors, may I wish you a very warm welcome to Aberford C of E Primary School. I am so pleased and proud to be headteacher here and it is a real privilege to be part of the Aberford community.
As one of the smaller schools in the area, we offer a friendly and nurturing environment with Christian Values at the heart of all we do. We are a hardworking, well respected and motivated school, committed firmly to the belief that every child can achieve. We work hard to create an atmosphere where children are happy, safe and secure so that they can thrive in everything that they do.
At Aberford C of E Primary School, we are a family.
The staff at our school work hard to provide rich, stimulating and accessible learning opportunities for every child. Learning should not only be exciting and rewarding but should also encourage and challenge so that our children have high aspirations. As a church school committed to encouraging all children to develop all their abilities, we offer a broad and balanced curriculum where children are challenged to achieve their best, not only in Maths and English, but also in the wider curriculum. 
Working collaboratively is a key driver for our school. Relationships and support from parents and families is strong and means a great deal to us. As a Church school, we also value our relationship with the local church and community. In addition, our school Governors act as supportive critical friends who play a key role in the school’s development.
I hope you find our website informative and interesting and if you wish to find our more, please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange a visit.
