Great Barford Primary Academy is in the village of Great Barford east of Bedford. Currently we are a lower school providing education for children from nursery age to year 4. The school is currently a one form entry.
Great Barford Primary Academy’s aim is to provide a secure, happy and effective learning environment in which children, staff, parents and governors work together for every child to develop their skills and talents to their full potential and to become thoughtful and responsible members of society.
We aim to provide pupils with the maximum opportunity to learn, to acquire a broad range of skills, knowledge and understanding, and to develop their physical, social and personal skills. Pupils are encouraged to grow in all aspects of their being, to achieve their personal potential, to promote self-esteem and respect for others and to constantly explore their individual talents.
We have an excellent staff who deliver outstanding learning to pupils. This they do by preparing effective classroom activities. Creating a disciplined, motivating, fair and secure learning environment and understanding the individual child’s potential, demonstrated aptitudes and building a relationship to nurture their talents.
We encourage all our parents and carers to participate in the development of the school and their children. Through parent consultations and classroom drop in’s they are provided with timely feedback on their child’s development with honesty and respect. They are given support and encouragement to work with the school on defined priorities.
We aim to provide the local community with a school that fulfils the educational and developmental requirements required by society. It benefits from the positive contributions made by a thoughtful and responsible school community which always acts as a good neighbour. We encourage the local community to support the school and all its efforts within the community.
As a governing body we ensure efficient and effective systems and procedures are operated in collaboration with staff, parents, children and the community towards the school’s aims. We are held accountable for raising standards in school and ensuring that the potential of every child is reached.
