As the Headteacher of Lothersdale Primary School, it is important to me that the school has a warm and welcoming atmosphere and offers children exciting opportunities to develop their full potential.
At Lothersdale Primary School we recognise that children have individual needs and our aim is to encourage every child to achieve their full potential. Our children are happy and their parents very supportive. Our school has a track record of consistently reaching very high results. Our achievements have been recognised by Ofsted in January 2006, October 2008 and, most recently, July 2014 when we have been judged ‘Outstanding’ in all areas, with no significant areas for improvement:
Achievement of pupils
Quality of teaching
Behaviour and safety of pupils
Leadership and management
In 2009 we gained the prestigious Arts Mark Gold Award for the second time. In 2010 we gained the Dyslexia Quality Mark, the highest level of The Inclusion Quality Mark, the Enhanced Healthy Schools Status, Global Schools Award Level 1 and Fairtrade Status. In 2011 we achieved the Silver Eco Schools award and in 2013 we achieved the prestigious Green Flag Status. In 2015 we achieved the Sainsbury’s School Games’ Gold Kitemark, which recognised the high level of physical activity that the school promotes.
I hope that the information contained in this Prospectus will give you a flavour of the school and help support you in deciding about your child’s education.
