Headteacher’s welcome

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.

The school was judged as ‘Good’ by OFSTED in 2012 and we are working hard to achieve outstanding status at the next inspection.  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.

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.

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.
