Welcome to Beckfoot Allerton and our Headteacher Michelle Blanchard
Beckfoot Allerton Primary School and Nursery is a two form entry school on the outskirts of Bradford.
We aspire to create a great school where pupils love learning and staff love working. We serve a diverse community and are proud to work closely with families to elevate pupil achievement and wellbeing. Our pupils are amazing! We have high aspirations for all our pupils and passionately believe that all pupils can, regardless of their background or personal circumstances, achieve highly. Our values are entwined in our SCARF ethos which is woven through our school and nurtures the holistic development of pupils. Pupils wear their SCARF with pride and we are delighted when they tell us they take their SCARF with them when they go to secondary school.
We are committed to offering all pupils a broad and meaningful curriculum including languages, the arts and sciences. We want all our pupils to find something they love. We believe that our curriculum should help pupils to find their voice and their place in the world. Our pupils care deeply about the world around them and we encourage them to find small ways to positively impact their world.
