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.

Here are some reports that we thought you may want to read!
News & Information
Happy New Year! After a cold spell overnight, the paths and playgrounds are frosty this morning so please exercise care when arriving at school this morning. Mr Harding has already been out gritting but some areas may still be slippery at 8:45am when the children should be arriving at school.Read more

App notifications issue
It has come to our attention that a few parents have stopped receiving app push notifications on their phones: as far as we can tell, there’s nothing wrong with the app itself: I’m getting notifications on my own phone as I send items out, but there does seem to be an issue with individual phones having turned off specific notifications (whether as a result of whole-phone software updates or app-specific updates).
I’ve had to advise a couple of parents already to do the following (based on an Android device):
Go into ‘Settings’ (the ‘cog’ icon in Android)
‘Sounds and notifications’
Ensure that ‘Allow notifications’ is checked (and ‘Set as priority’ as desired)
After experimenting with a member of staff’s iPhone, this would be the procedure for checking an iOS device’s notification settings:
Go into ‘Settings’
Find the Levendale app and select it
Ensure that ‘Allow notifications’ is checked as well as ‘Show in lock screen’
I would appreciate an idea of whether this solves the problem as it does not seem to be affecting all users. If you are able to pass this message on to anyone who you know IS having issues, I would be very grateful.
