Welcome to Lawn Primary School website, I hope that you will find it a useful introduction to our school.
We are a large, suburban primary school of approximately 420 pupils situated close to the centre of the City of Derby. Our aim is to provide a high quality learning environment combined with a caring ethos in which each individual achieves their full potential. We place great emphasis upon the development of a broad range of learning skills so that during their time with us our children are able to acquire a love of learning that will last them for a lifetime.
We have a very talented and committed teaching and support staff team who offer the children many different ways to excel and achieve. The school curriculum is differentiated to provide challenge for our more able pupils and support for those with any special educational needs. We have an extensive range of extra-curricular activities that provide an extra dimension to the opportunities for learning. We are continually developing our technological facilities to ensure that all of our pupils can access and benefit from the digital learning environment.
We encourage the pupils to be involved and take responsibility for their own learning. We encourage them to have opinions and participate fully in all aspects of school life. There are many opportunities for them to join in including Class and School Councils, Buddies, Mini-leaders, librarians, team captains, various monitor roles throughout the school. We encourage them to take a pride in their learning and achievements and hold weekly celebration assembles.
We aim to work closely with parents in an ongoing partnership to support children’s learning. We have an “open door” policy and encourage parents to communicate closely both with class teachers and with myself. We hold regular consultation evenings which are well attended by almost 100% of our parents. Each term we send home curriculum information letters and hold annual curriculum evenings for every year group. We publish fortnightly newsletters and send out whole school information letters on specific topics.
I hope that our website will provide you with a taste of who we are and what we do and if you like what you see and would like to know more about us then please contact the School Office and make an appointment to come and see us. You will be very welcome.
