Nurturing, Achieving and Inspiring


Respect, Challenge and Enjoyment.


Thank you for visiting Alford Primary School and Nursery website.

Alford Primary and Nursery are part of the thriving Alford Community Campus which was completed in 2015. Pupils attending the school benefit from fantastic facilities including extensive outdoor spaces, good connectivity and access to IT, a theatre, library, dance studio, sports halls and a swimming pool.

Alford is a happy place where the values of RESPECT, KINDNESS, FRIENDSHIP, RESPONSIBILITY, TRUST, HONESTY and LEARNING, agreed by the school community, are at the heart of everything we do. As a school community there is an expectation that every person will work hard to:

  • Be the best they can be
  • Learn from others
  • Take responsibility for their own words and actions
  • Care and support others
  • Speak respectfully and truthfully
  • Keep everyone safe

We hope that what you see and read here will give you a feel for the life and work of our school. Please contact the school office if you would like to arrange a visit.
