On behalf of the Governors, staff and children here at St. Anne`s CE Lydgate Primary School, I would like to welcome you to our school and thank you for visiting our website.
At St. Anne`s we pride ourselves on our warm and friendly atmosphere and hope that new parents and children will quickly feel part of our school family.
We have high expectations and the good quality teaching and pastoral care our children receive, regardless of their starting points or abilities, guarantees that they have a great beginning to their school career.
It is important to us that the children are happy, confident and resilient and enjoy their learning, making the most of all the opportunities we have to offer. We ensure that all learning is purposeful and linked to children`s own experiences so they are engaged, challenged and become highly effective problem solvers and communicators.
Our curriculum is creative, inclusive and exciting. It provides children with a broad range of learning experiences which seek to nurture talents and acquire new skills in a hands-on and engaging way. It is our aim for all children to have a deeper understanding of the world around them and to become responsible and caring citizens of the future.
We hope that during their time with us your children will become confident, articulate, and inquisitive and endeavour to work in partnership with parents to achieve the very best provision for every individual.
Our weekly newsletter keeps everyone informed about forthcoming events, essential information and the exciting activities that have taken place in school. Our class blogs also highlight the key aspects of our curriculum right from our Reception class all the way through to Y6.
I hope that you enjoy reading about what we have to offer. If you are looking for something in particular and are unable to find it, please don`t hesitate to contact the school on 0161 770 8661 and we will be happy to answer your questions.
A message from Peter Burnley Executive Headteacher
Ask me why St Anne’s is such a special, successful school and I will tell you that it is due to the fact that the children are placed at the centre of all we do, they always come first. We want the children in our school to be happy, safe, confident, enjoy learning and achieve their full potential.
Everyone, not just the children, see themselves as part of an effective learning community that works hard to achieve excellence – no one settles for second best.
When people join the school they become part of one big family, enjoying the real sense of community which that brings. Working together for the good of all, we form a formidable team.
Our motto ‘reflect and learn’, encapsulates our intention to identify the steps we need to take in order to improve our practice. Everyone at St. Anne’s sees themselves as a learner, keen to develop and enhance their talents, skills and abilities. No one ever stops learning here and each person is valued for their unique contribution.
We aim to develop independent, thoughtful, considerate, resilient community members, who reflect on what they do and take responsibility for their actions.
Finally, there is a genuine willingness to share what we have with others because we believe that when we give freely, we receive more in return.
