Welcome to Balfour
We would like to welcome you all very warmly to our website and to our school.
All our staff are committed to providing an outstanding learning experience and success for all our children. We are all dedicated to blending academic excellence with a richness of opportunity beyond the classroom. We believe that sound values and a positive attitude are crucial for our pupils to become life-long learners and responsible, valuable members of the community. Our expectations of the children are very high and we believe that every child will couple academic success with success across the breadth of our curriculum and wider experiences. We want all our children to love school, love learning and feel proud of their own achievements.
We are determined to give our pupils every opportunity to make the most of their abilities through a combination of excellent teaching, an inspirational learning environment and by enabling pupils to take significant responsibility; all the qualities that we aim to foster through our school values, which encourage us all to be responsible, respectful, reflective and resilient.
Balfour Primary School is a dynamic and innovative learning community that is committed to continuous improvement. This means that very little remains static at our school as we continue with our drive towards excellence at the heart of our wider community.
Our hope is that through this website you get a feel for our school, for the importance we place on nurturing a love of learning, for our belief that every child can and will succeed and our commitment to ensuring every young person at Balfour has a rich and fulfilling education. This site can only give you a glimpse of the diversity and vitality of our school, however, if you are thinking about coming to our school, we would urge you to visit us, meet our children and staff, and see through your own eyes what life at Balfour is really like.
