Executive Head Welcome

On behalf of our community, welcome to Livingstone Road Primary Federation.

Our federation consists of Livingstone Road Infant School and Livingstone Road Junior School. We work as a primary school team across two amazing sites. Everything we plan is progressive, from EYFS to Year 6, including our curriculum, reading offer and behaviour policy. Children start their learning journey with us at 4 years old and transfer to our junior school at the end of Year 2, to complete their primary journey to the end of Year 6. During their time at our Federation we prepare the children to have the skills and knowledge they need to move onto the next stage of their learning.

As a federation, we recognise that all children have individual needs and our aim is to provide a happy, stimulating environment where everybody is valued and encouraged to fulfil their potential. Both of our school sites have been developed to create learning spaces that engage and inspire children and provide them with amazing learning opportunities. Reading has been a recent key focus because we feel this is the gateway to all learning. We want all children to have a love and passion for the written word and we created The Book Factory, Narnia, The Train Room and our Alice in Wonderland garden as spaces for our children to develop their love. Please watch our virtual tours to see these fantastic spaces! We are also currently developing a new ICT suite and Art/DT room for all children to use.

Both our schools have recently had an Ofsted inspection (Oct 21 and Nov 21) and received a ‘Good’ judgement. We are so proud of these outcomes and that the reports recognise our team of talented and dedicated staff, who all work together to provide the best possible education for the children in our care.

Although not part of our Federation, Kidscape at Livingstone Road, operates from premises on our Junior School site and we work closely with them. They provide wrap around care for our children, including breakfast club, after school club and holiday clubs, which means that the children can be cared for onsite outside of school opening hours.

Staff, Governors and Parents together share a common interest – the happiness, wellbeing and education of your children.

Our ethos says it all:

Together we can

Learn, Laugh, Dream, Grow

I hope you enjoy our website and look forward to welcoming you to our school.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Suzy Hayward
