Welcome to Aldbury C of E Primary School
Due to our Headteacher leaving at the end of the summer term, we are looking for a new Headteacher to start in September 2015 who can take our school forward into the next phase of its development. Details of the post can be obtained by clicking here.
Aldbury C of E Primary School is fully committed to safeguarding children and young people. Our Child Protection policy is available in the School Policies section of our website and in our school office.
Welcome to the website of Aldbury Church of England Primary School – a small, friendly village school in the heart of the countryside and yet in convenient reach of Tring, Berkhamsted and surrounding villages.
Aldbury is a happy school with a strong, caring ethos. We encourage and expect children to work hard, behave well and try their best, so they can develop into independent, self-confident students with, above all, a love for learning.
We offer a wide curriculum where academic excellence and creativity are highly valued and participation in sporting and music activities is encouraged and nurtured. We encourage every child to succeed in a caring and supportive atmosphere, enabling them to grow and develop into well-rounded young people.
Aldbury is a Church of England school with close ties to the church and our community and a committed parent teacher association which provides welcome fundraising support for the school, as well as organising a variety of social activities to promote community links.
We very much value the positive contributions to the life of the school from pupils, staff, parents, governors, the local community and the church – because we are a whole school community working collaboratively with high expectations to support pupils’ intellectual, social, emotional, spiritual, moral and cultural development.
Families from outside the village are welcome. If you are interested in our school please contact us, we would be very happy to show you around.
