About As

The School

In 1870 the Beaford Board opened its school in the centre of the village and the front of the school is very similar today. Originally the school was built to cater for the parish of Beaford but now also serves the communities of St. Giles in the Wood, Roborough, and High Bullen. Some children even attend from as far afield as Torrington.
In 1994 re-modelling was completed. Since then a new foundation unit has been added, housing our nursery and reception year one class. The unit opened in Spring 2003. The School presently has a hall, five teaching areas, a resources area and library. The administration area is in the reception and the school administrator is usually available there until the end of school on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Re-modelling has also provided the School with a kiln for pottery and modern indoor P.E. equipment. We have an environmental area and a large playing field. Since re-modelling the school has steadily grown and during this academic year there are 4 teaching groups.
The school retains its Victorian frontage to the village but inside is well equipped for a more modern approach to education, especially through the use of ICT to deliver the curriculum.

The school is proud of the reputation it holds within the wider community and the fact that it draws pupils from a wider area than its immediate catchment. We attach great importance to the caring family atmosphere which we encourage and maintain.

Mission Statement


Our aim is that Beaford Community Primary School, by working in partnership with
parents and the community, will be a happy and enriching learning environment. We hope that by celebrating the children's achievements, helping them fulfil their potential, respecting their differences and encouraging kindness, consideration and respect, we will foster self-esteem and provide a sound foundation for their future life.


To establish a reputation for excellence in the academic, social and
physical development of our children.

To constantly strive to raise standards.

To give all children equal opportunities, whatever their race, gender or
individual need.

To enable and inspire our children to learn and achieve their full potential as a sound foundation for their future life.

To provide a safe, happy, enriching environment in which our children are able to learn.

To promote childrens' self esteem, encourage them to take responsibility for their own work and foster consideration and respect for others.

To promote a supportive, active and co-operative partnership between parents and the school in the work of their children and to encourage all parents to become actively involved in the life and work of the school as a whole.

To encourage in service training and development for all members of the school staff, Governors, parents or other helpers.

To involve the community in the work of the school and enable the school to play its part in the life of our local communities.


The school year runs from 1st September to 31st August. The Nursery admits children the term after their 3rd birthday or as soon as a place becomes available. They are offered up to five half day sessions.

Nursery Admissions
Autumn Term 1 April - 31 August
Spring Term 1 September 31 December
Summer Term 1 January - 31 March

Children must attend school from the beginning of the term that follows their 5th birthday but are usually admitted to Class One in the term in which they are five. This is a matter of parental choice. At present we have an intake at the beginning of all three terms to Class One but from September 2003 this will alter to two intakes, one in September and the other in January.

School Admissions
Autumn Term 1 September 31 December
Spring Term 1 January 31 March
Summer Term 1 April 31 August

There is a close link between the Nursery and Class One. They share stories and singing sessions on a regular basis. The nursery children are invited to school events and parents receive a newsletter as well as being encouraged to participate in school activities at the earliest opportunity. Prior to the children joining the Class One, we arrange a programme of half day visits to their new class. We rarely have difficulties in settling children into their new surroundings because they are already familiar with the school environment.

Visits to look around the school and meet the staff are welcomed. Please telephone to make an appointment. Admission details are available from the office.
