Headteacher’s Welcome

Dear Parents and Carers,

A warm welcome to Layton Primary School’s website. Here you will find plenty of information about our school, our aims, our welcoming ethos and our staff.

We wish to enable your child to be the best they can be, whatever their talents, and to develop their skills so they achieve beyond their expectations.

At Layton we place a high value on children’s achievement and attainment, and have been extremely successful in this regard. We remain one of the most successful schools in England at developing children’s potential; in 2013/2014 we were placed in the highest 250 schools in the country for attainment and achievement of groups of our pupils, and were one of the most improved schools in the country. In 2015 we were placed in the highest 100 top performing schools in the country; we are incredibly proud of this huge achievement. On October of 2017 we received an outstanding judgement in all areas from OFSTED. We will be looking forward to building on this success and will continue to strive for excellence.

We are currently an Apple Distinguished School and place a high value on using ICT to support development of children as independent learners.

We deliver a bespoke curriculum which is tailored to the needs of the children in our community, complying with all national requirements, but tailored to cater for individual needs. We place a high value on the basic skills of Literacy and Numeracy, as well as the skills of learning itself, in order that our children can continue to learn throughout life, and utilise what they have learned over and over again. Our curriculum builds on those skills year upon year, both in academic skills, and in creative subjects.

We aim to educate our children in partnership with yourselves. Our relationship is vital to securing the best outcomes for your children, and we value it highly. Our aim is, as a community, to “Grow Great Minds Together’

Please visit our website and blogging site to see more of our curriculum in action. It is an integral part of our work in school.

We look forward to working with you and your child to ensure continued success and happiness. Please watch the video below where our children give you an honest opinion of Layton Primary School!

If you’d like to get in touch, then please use the ‘contact us’ link above and we will deal with your contact enquiry; you can also access our recent OFSTED report from our website or ofsted.gov.uk

Yours faithfully,
