Landywood Primary School’s vision is “To be the best we can possibly be.”
We will endeavour to:
Landywood Primary School currently has 305 children on roll, aged between 3 and 11 years old, (Nursery including wrap-around to Year 6). We are situated on an extensive campus, with a wide range of facilities available.
In addition to the Primary School, there is a Holly Lane Nursery, which is a privately-run organisation caring for children from 12 weeks old to 4 years. A Children’s Centre on site runs courses and programmes for families and very young children. A Kids Club provides care before and after school.
There is also the Cannock and Lichfield Dyslexia Centre based in school which is a local authority run centre for pupils with specific learning difficulties.
The school is organised into four phases.
The Foundation Stage (our Nursery and two Reception Classes) are housed in a separate open plan unit which is completely self contained. Nursery and Reception each have an enclosed outdoor play area.
In the main building we have Years 1 – 6, arranged in phases (Year 1 & 2, 3 & 4 and 5 & 6).
Class teachers in each phase plan their work together to ensure that there is continuity and progression in the curriculum so each child makes progress at the right rate.
Our PAN is 45.
We have a large, well maintained site which gives us the ability to provide good care and exciting opportunities for pupils. We have a dedicated medical room, an art room, and a circle time room for Life Education.
Our ICT facilities comprise a computer suite, and a wing of the school which is wireless connected, with a suite of laptops available.
Outdoors we have a playground for each phase, plus very extensive grounds which hold an adventure playground and an outdoor stage set in its own amphitheatre.
We have three woodland areas, where each class has a session of Forest School activities each week, and a garden area, where children grow vegetables and plants each year.
As a school we believe that children learn best when they are safe, happy and motivated and we have worked hard to ensure that our facilities and curriculum enable us to develop the whole child.
At Landywood we are committed to providing the best educational experience for the pupils, and we constantly strive to live up to our motto: “Being the best we can possibly be”.
