Welcome to Levendale Primary School
For all our pupils we seek to provide a happy and secure environment founded on mutual respect for one another. We aim to develop the childrens’ skills, knowledge and understanding through carefully planned and structured activities, which provide experiences to enrich and stimulate learning. All children are special and we seek to foster each individual’s unique talents and to provide support where difficulties arise.
Success in achieving these aims was acknowledged and applauded on a recent inspection (June 2013) by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate.
“ Pupils behave outstandingly well. They say that the school cares for them well and that they feel safe”
“Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is very strong and pupils regard their school as a real community. They are courteous and respectful to each other and to adults”
“Leaders and governors are very ambitious for the school and the pupils.”
“The headteacher, ably supported by an effective leadership team, provides strong educational direction and is determined to continue improving the school.”
If you are considering applying to the school but would like more information, or you would like to make a prior visit, please contact either Mrs Dearlove or Mrs McCullagh in the school office.
Dr R. Beadnall (Headteacher)

Ruby Performance – POSTPONED
It is with real regret that, following a Senior Management meeting this morning, we are going to have to reschedule our Ruby Anniversary performance that was meant to take place this afternoon on the school field. The field is too wet to be used following the heavy rain yesterday and overnight; the forecast for late morning onwards is more heavy rain which would preclude us moving on to the playground with the electrical equipment we would be using.
We are looking at moving the performance to next Wednesday afternoon and incorporate it into Sports Day, running a slightly reduced programme of events for Sports Day and having lunch slightly earlier than usual. More details to follow.
Our sincere apologies for the inconvenience that this postponement may cause: we wanted to let people know at the earliest opportunity rather than very late in the morning.Read more

On a semi-related note, thank you to all those who have expressed their thoughts via the school meals survey. I have now had 46 respondents and will be closing the survey collector on Friday afternoon this week to analyse the results. I will communicate the results to the Governing Body and yourselves as parents in due course.
There will also be a range of desserts, including iced buns, apple crumble/ice cream and strawberries & cream.Read more
