We welcome you to our website and hope you enjoy finding out about our school!
Parents and teachers at Giffards Primary School want children to be happy and learn lots of new skills.We believe that these two things can be achieved in an environment where children and adults respect each other, regardless of age, gender or position. We want children to be kind, careful and considerate, friendly and polite, helpful, sensible, honest, hard working and respectful of other people's opinions, beliefs and property. Children at Giffards are happy and remain at the heart of everything we do. An important element in a child's education is the link between home and school. Children learn best when home and school work together so that we can achieve the very best for our children. Please ensure that children attend school every day, are punctual and wearing school uniform. Click to see our Prospectus and an explanation of the National Curriculum that we follow. Please click to view our Child_Protection_Policy_with_regard_to_the_website. We have advice regarding internet safety for your child and we have a Social Networking Policy in place for your information. Contact us if you have any queries or questions or wish to report your child's absence.
