Our aim as a school is to provide a warm, friendly, atmosphere in a safe, caring environment, where children will be happy and successful. To achieve this, it is important that the school and home work together in partnership. This partnership is built through a regular dialogue between parents, child and school.

: A massive thank you. Hello. My son, Kyle betts has recently had his sats tests. I would like to thank everyone involved with these as he has achieved great marks and he is thoroughly proud of himself, as are we. The staff at landywood primary school have been absolutely amazing throughout his whole primary education but in particular with these tests. Kyle does struggle with concentration and lack of confidence, but the time and effort put into him by mrs Burrows and mr Clewer in particular, has made all the difference in him. I felt like they really kept his confidence going on his tougher days and helped him in anyway they could, the door was always open for him. I’ve honestly not known many teachers that are this invested in helping the children, nor this approachable. I feel that they have set him up with tips and skills that I’m sure will help him in the high school. Mr Clewer and all the teachers are an absolute asset to Landywood and Kyle is very sad to be leaving as am I. I honestly cannot thank you all enough for what you’ve done for my son. It’s very much appreciated and I wish you all the best. Lisa Smith
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all staff and students for helping to make Wyrley in the park so special. As a music teacher I appreciate the drive, enthusiasm, dedication and hard work involved in learning any new repertoire and you should be immensly proud of the standard at which your choir performs. To produce the quality performances seen today and during the music extravaganza on Friday is an amazing feat. I only wish I could have had a teacher like Mrs Picken when I was younger. I look forward to working with Landywood in the future. Thanks again for your support. Best wishes, Vaughan Smith Faculty leader for performing arts and media. Great Wyrley High School.
Dear Mr Clewer I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the school play last night. Mrs Slymm and Mrs Picken put on an excellent production. I know a lot of hard work has gone in to this and I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone involved. I could see each child enjoyed performing and displayed great confidence. I look forward to the next show Kind regards Kelly Lees
Well I believe sports week has been a fantastic success. Well done to everyone involved. It was finished off with a really lovely BBQ this evening which had a lovely relaxed atmosphere. FANTASTIC.
Just some photos I took of my boys Harry and Stanley at the party last week. We had a lovely time thank you for having us celebrate with you. Thank you Annie Allcutt
Today I have been asked to work with some of the students here at landywood primary in connection with the schools sports week. I have been running sessions around healthy eating and balanced diets that not only taste great but gives us essential fuel for our bodies. We spoke about each food group and what it does to our bodies. In the sandwich making session the students were tasked with making a healthy balanced sandwich which ticks off at least 3 food groups. After tasting sandwiches all day I have seen some really interesting flavour combinations, with strawberry, tuna and cheese , to beetroot yoghurt and ham, I can honestly say the children worked extremely well and listened throughout. I think I may have seen some future master chefs today!
Dear Mr Clewer, I would like to congratulate the school on what I thought was the best Mother’s Day assembly I have been to and I have been to a lot. I would go on to say best assembly I have been to ever. There was so much effort from all parts of the school and every single year played their part well. You could see the emotion from all the students which made the message come across even more. The songs were fantastic and so were the little messages for everyone’s mum. It ended up a very emotional day with a row of mums all crying into tissues I had luckily brought with me. Well done Landywood, a school that’s going from strength to strength. Thank you for a memory I will treasure forever. Mrs Niles.
Hey James, thank you for bringing your pupils to take part in the hockey tournament. Please congratulate your pupils, they competed really well, showed a good team spirit and represented your school in a positive manner. I hope to organise a combined Year 4 and 5 rounders tournament in the summer and look forward to seeing you there. Thanks Jenny Fielder. P.E teacher at GWHS
On the very coldest of days, Landywood Primary was a warm beacon welcoming me. I go into a lot of schools and it is always a privilege but sometimes it’s particularly special. As soon as you step through the door at Landywood there’s a rather joyous energy: I wasn’t in there one minute before some pupils were telling me about their World Book Day costumes. It’s a happy energy, too, and I learned through the day that it’s focused on learning things that are deeply important to me as an author. Mrs Thacker, for instance, told me how alongside all the requirements of the curriculum, the school makes space for what’s called Writing for Pleasure. Any school with teachers as good as this can show pupils how to write but it’s when they’re encouraged to explore the topic that they become writers. Then the pupils were so fast and clever that I wanted to risk challenging them with editing. This is an essential part of writing that I regularly find hard to get even older children to do – but Miss Cook was able to tell me that her class already do it. You can’t imagine how rare that is or how important. I said this to everyone who’d listen on the day and now I want to say it to you too: I wish my primary school had been as good as Landywood.

In September 2017 we began working with Landywood Primary as part of a scheme run by Beanstalk, a charity involved in the recruitment of volunteers to help children with their reading. On the preliminary visit we were taken to all parts of the school and were impressed by the wonderfully creative environment, rich with displays, the purposeful atmosphere of the classrooms and above all, the well-mannered pupils with good social skills and social graces. Working closely with pupils, we have observed that they are keen to learn and proud of their achievements. For example, one stopped us in the corridor to show us the 100% attendance badge and the Headmaster’s award badge (his second!), awarded for reading and writing, which he was proudly wearing. Children are clearly happy at school. Signs such as “Being the best we can possibly be” and “our values” are clearly displayed and serve as reminders, instilling a sense of pride and belonging in pupils (and staff too!) According to some parents, the appointment of Mr Clewer, as Head Teacher, supported by his dedicated staff has proven key to the school’s success. Anita and David Owen Volunteer Readers
