IMG_0441 (2)Welcome to Christian Malford Church of England Primary School’s website. I hope that it gives you a good idea of the supportive and stimulating environment we provide both the children and their parents at our school: from pre-school through to Year 6.

Our motto says, “Challenge, Motivate and Succeed” and everything we do is focused on providing the children with the challenge and motivation to succeed. Please read our Aims and Philosophy statement to find out more.

We have an open door policy for parents so that we constantly communicate with them to ensure that their children are happy and getting the most from the opportunities we offer.

From the start, our pupils are encouraged to reach their full potential.

Our Local Board and Diocese of Bristol Academies Trust are supportive and skilled and work closely with me to continue to grow our school. Our Friends of School provide vital help with fundraising and social events. Together we form a strong team for our pupils through these important first years of their education.

It is impossible to include everything on our website so I hope that you will take the opportunity to come along to an Open Morning/Afternoon or call the office on 01249 720496 to arrange an appointment to visit.

Mrs Andrea Kaye – Executive Headteacher
