Welcome to Landywood Primary School.
On behalf of all the Governors, Staff and Children I would like to extend a warm welcome to our school, we hope that you and your child enjoy your time with us.
At Landywood Primary School every child is as important as the next. In short, every child matters. Everyone at Landywood is committed to providing a caring and friendly school, a happy place to learn because happy children make engaged learners.
Our Ofsted inspection judged the school to be good in all areas. The inspectors identified "The curriculum is designed to ensure that pupils make good progress in English and Mathematics and develop their skills and knowledge in a range of other subjects through school's creative curriculum."

Landywood Primary School is an inclusive community and we promote tolerance and respect for all. We value the individual contributions our pupils bring to school and we encourage and support them to fulfil their potential.
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.
We want all children to achieve the highest possible standards and make maximum progress in relation to their prior learning. We want children to enjoy acquiring and using knowledge and skills to question and explore, to acquire positive attitudes, to gain independence, to become lifelong learners.

Thank you for visiting!

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
A massive big thank you to Mr Clewer, the staff and the delightful children at Landywood who made my Water Assembly a total pleasure to deliver. Your Fairy Wood Land Reception area took my breath away, it was the most creative, inspiring and interesting entrance to a school that I have ever visited...truly amazing!!!
I just wanted to say Thank You to Landywood for giving Grace the opportunity yesterday to attend Great Wyrley High School's recording studio to record a poem she had wrote for Remembrance Day. Grace, along with Mr. Clewer and three other children from Year 2, spent time in the recording studio and came home with a CD and photo. This opportunity given to her by Landywood has given her the chance to experience something new and will be something she will always remember. Another proud "Mummy & Daddy" moment to look back on.
I would just like to say what a fantastic Christmassy afternoon we've had today with Olivia's Around the World assembly, the Carol singing and choir and the Christmas fair and tea room. We all had a lovely time and it was such a nice atmosphere too. Well done to everyone involved and thank you! Best regards and Merry Christmas, Emma Trow.
Thank you so much for entering a team into the National Young Mathematicians’ Award 2017 – we’re thrilled to say your team will progress into the Regional Finals of the competition! Here’s some feedback for Team Landywood: the team demonstrated great team work and earned points for deciding and demonstrating how to work as a team, agreeing on their strategies, and checking the answers of others. They were able to identify five discreet paths that total 75, and demonstrated reasoning to support there only being five paths. They showed evidence of having worked systemically, but lost marks for not noticing there are gaps, or being able to explain why these gaps are present. Please do pass on my loudest WELL DONE to the children – it was wonderful to see their enthusiasm and attitude towards solving the problem. Gaby Explore Learning Centre Manager
