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.

Pupils are well mannered,

confident and articulate;

eager to share their creative

ideas for the school.

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!

Staff know their pupils exceptionally well, so they understand when extra help is needed.

Information for parents

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.

The school has created a distinctively Christian family atmosphere where each child is valued. This has a significant impact on pupils’ achievement and behaviour.

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.
