We aim to provide a safe, secure environment where children of all aptitudes and abilities are encouraged to embark on a lifelong learning journey. This is a community of learners: staff, children and parents. We may not always get it right but we recognize that mistakes are an important part of the process for all of us. Feedback from parents and visitors tells us that our children are happy here, that they are eager to learn and that parents are overwhelmingly pleased with their children’s progress. However, we are not complacent. We are committed to raising standards for all groups and we constantly challenge all learners – including teachers – to aim higher.
Every child really does matter in our school and we are proud of our relationships: staff with children, children with each other and staff with parents and carers. This is the bedrock of all that we do, from Foundation Stage to Year 6 and the start of secondary school. We aim to produce happy, self-disciplined, hard-working children who value themselves and others and who will be an asset to their community and to the world.
We use a telephone messaging service called “Echo” in case of bad weather, delays on return journeys from trips, short notice club cancellations, etc. The number is 0844 481 9238 to listen to Livingstone’s personal message. We will update it with any changes.
This is a good school.
Pupils enjoy learning and achieve well. All groups make good progress from their starting points and test results at the end of Year 6 are above average in English and mathematics.
Children get off to a good start in the Nursery with good attention given not only to developing skills in reading, writing and mathematics but also to children’s personal development.
Pupils behave well not just in lessons but in and around the school. They are very friendly and rightly feel safe and secure.
Please note: Will no longer authorise term-time holidays under ANY circumstances.
