Welcome to Lime Academy Larkswood. Larkswood is the founding school of the Lime Trust.
Larkswood has places for 800 children between the age of two and eleven. We are a multi-cultural school with over 20 nationalities represented.
Our ethos is clear-we put children first, we always look for ways to be brilliant and are values led, believing in displaying: courage, partnership, equality, enjoyment, trust and excellence in all we do.
Our curriculum is broad, balanced and motivational, encouraging all pupils to become independent thinkers and learners. We place a vital importance on life-long learning, aiming to prepare our pupils for the future workplace and to become global citizens.
Our pupils’ behaviour is exemplary, they are proud of their learning and of their school. Their efforts and successes are constantly celebrated.
Larkswood pupils, at the end of Key Stage 2, achieved in line with the national average in 2017, and our younger pupils are achieving above the national average at the end of Early Years and Year 1.
The school was inspected by OFSTED on 23rd January 2018 and it deemed that we continue to be a good school. We are very proud of this achievement especially as the lead inspector particularly commented on the fact that;
‘The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection, setting high expectations for what pupils can achieve’.
The school ‘have created a learning environment that promotes your core values. Your curriculum meets the needs of all your pupils because you are constantly reviewing its effectiveness’.
‘One of the strengths of the school is the pupils’ attitudes to learning. They work hard to support each other, are polite and resilient, and take a pride in their school’.
‘Parents and pupils agree that the school is a safe place to learn’.
Our key priorities are:
- Raise outcomes in reading
- Increase whole school attendance
We continue to review our processes and procedures in order for our pupils to achieve at the highest standards.
The staff team at Lime Academy Larkswood are ambitious for every child in the school. We make sure that they are given the best possible education, are safe and are valued.
Visits to the school are encouraged and we look forward to meeting you.
