Welcome to Bayford Church of England Primary School & Nursery
Welcome and thank you for your interest in our school! At Bayford we create a caring, family atmosphere under-pinned by our Christian values. We aim to develop each child’s talents and abilities, providing opportunities for every individual to be a happy, confident, resilient, and enthusiastic learner, ensuring they have the skills needed to achieve their full potential. We have a range of facilities, which include a field, ponds, and woodland area which allow us to provide fantastic outdoor learning opportunities for our children, enhancing the engaging curricular and extra-curricular activities that we provide.
Our School vision
We started a major review of our school’s vision in the autumn term of 2021, our first review since 2016. Our values remain what they have ever been, rooted in Christian faith. But from time to time it’s important that we all stop and think about our vision and don’t just take it for granted. We’ll only stay the friendly and supportive community we are if we keep talking about how we ought to be living and learning together. So that’s what we’re doing!

We hope that you can find everything you need by following the links in the main menu. If you prefer, you can download the current school Prospectus, which includes much of the same information. We update the Prospectus every year. If you can’t find the answer to a question you have, you can always get in touch directly by phone or email. We’re always happy to help and to arrange a visit. You can also request a paper copy of anything published on this site free of charge.
We are a Church of England School
We belong to the Church of England and the vision and values which underpin everything we do are founded on Christian faith. But far from making us exclusive, that faith makes us an inclusive, community school. We believe that God loves each and every individual, regardless of their faith or their lifestyle and choices: so we are here to live out that love and play our part in enriching the lives of everyone who comes to our school, whether as a child or as an adult, a member of staff, parent, or volunteer. That is what we were founded to do almost two hundred years ago, and that remains central to our vision today.
Here’s our most recent attendance figure as a percentage across the whole school for the year to date. We owe it to our children to keep this figure high! Our target is at least 95%.
