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.
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.
Want to know more about our school? Have a good look at our website and even better, get in touch and arrange a visit.
Thank you for visiting!

Just wanted to give some feedback about the INSET I delivered to staff on the language and literacy and numeracy toolkits yesterday. Staff were attentive, engaged and contributed to discussion and activity given well throuhgout. As part of the session I included an activity that required them to consider information given about a case study pupil so that a profile of the pupil’s strengths and weaknesses could be compiled using the continuums. This is a task I often do in schools and it can be difficult as we are not working with a ‘real-life’ example and even more challenging for your staff as none of them had previously used them. I was encouraged by various discussions I heard at tables about the judgements they made about the pupil’s attainment across the 14 threads. In addition to this they are beginning to justify their decisions well. The questions asked and comments made throughout the INSET demonstrated an understanding of the rationale behind the continuums and their use. Embedding the continuums can take time and practise and I am looking forward to working with staff to do this but feel that we are working from a secure baseline. I am also really impressed by the steps staff have already taken to ‘get going’ with the toolkit for their own pupils and am looking forward to supporting them next on subsequent school visits. Thank you for your welcome and introduction on the day and much needed help with IT. Manjit Kaur Hayre Pupil and School Support (North)
I was a pupil here during the war around 1942/3 and remember sliding round the playground in the snow! We came to Great Wyrley to miss the bombing in London.
A very well behaved and disciplined school. We have visited a high number of schools and we feel that Landywood Primary were one of the best in terms of behaviour and participation. Thank you for having us
I'm sorry that I had to leave this morning’s presentation early. I left at the point where you were discussing the attendance reward system and up until that point I was thoroughly impressed. It was very refreshing to see such energy, motivation and a proactive approach. You used the word passive in the early part of the presentation regarding children's learning, I believe that the school in recent years has been rather passive in many other aspects, all of which it seems you are well aware. I was pleased to hear your aspirations for the direction of the school. The new structure of leadership and curriculum sound very exciting and conducive to a great learning environment. The data analysis of individual pupils progress was music to my ears, I look forward to seeing the feedback from this in the coming terms in regards to my daughter. Your discussion around outdoor and active learning was very interesting, I am a firm believer that everyone learns better when a variety of teaching techniques are used. I would also like to express my support for the introduction of more homework, as well as promoting children's learning, it will also prepare them for secondary school and provide them with opportunity to develop organisation and time management skills. I have discussed the homework with my daughter, who initially was not too impressed, but we have devised a plan and a reward system, which she is more than happy with. The new topics sounded like great fun, whilst incorporating vast amounts of scope for learning. You mentioned a forthcoming topic of rain forests, we are planning a holiday which will include a visit to a real rain forest in Borneo over Easter, if there is anything you would like us to do that would help the children's learning while we are there, please let me know.
Dear Mr Clewer I felt I must let you know what an absolutely wonderful morning I spent at Landywood, telling the story of Treasure Island, for Story Week. The pupils did themselves and the school much credit in their welcome and appreciation. The letters to me from them are amazing, and I would be most grateful if you could pass on my thanks to the children. Yours sincerely Roland Smith
Is it possible to have school meetings/assemblies for special occasions at the very beginning of school day(9/-15) so working parents can attend without having to travel to work to leave after half hour to come back or not even be then able to attend and those who are stay at home mothers don't have to go home to come back.
Dear Mr. Clewer and James, I would like to begin saying I am very grateful to you for allowing me to work within your school for the week and be a part of the Landywood team. I have felt very welcomed by James and have very much enjoyed getting involved with the children both in P.E and during lunchtimes. Overall, it has been a very pleasant experience and I have enjoyed working so closely with James, hopefully I could be in contact with you in the future if you were to be so kind having me back again should the opportunity arise. Best regards, Tom
Dear Mr. Clewer, I would like to say a very big thank you to you, the staff and the children that attended our Book corner, here at Sainsbury’s. May I say it was a pleasure and great fun, I do hope that the children enjoyed themselves and feel inspired to start their own stories with the notebook that was part of their gifts in the goody bag. Kind regards Heather Norman PR Ambassador Cannock Sainsbury’s
