'We are proud of our school. The staff and children look after each other so that we can all do our best and succeed.”
Lingfield Primary School is situated in the heart of the large village of Lingfield, most famous for Lingfield Racecourse. Fields and beautiful countryside surround this busy village.
Lingfield is proud of the rich tapestry made up by all its pupils and their families. Our school community is made up of significant proportions of pupils from a range of backgrounds. The employment status of our families includes: professionals both local and city based; small business owners; and a skilled, manual workforce. We have a higher than average proportion of pupils with Educational Health and Care Plans and our pupils eligible for free school meals is slightly lower than the national picture. Children who speak English as an additional language is a steadily increasing pupil group and we also have a small yet thriving traveller community.
Our school is a larger than average two form entry primary school with children from Nursery to Year 6. We are very lucky to have a light and spacious school building with outside learning spaces for most classes. The site benefits from extensive playground and field facilities, outside classrooms, pond and wildlife area and designated Forest Schools space. In addition to the natural features of our school site, we have an all-weather running track and outdoor gym which promotes daily physical activity. At Lingfield, learning outside is valued as much as learning inside.
If you would like to see our school in action, we would love to welcome you for a tour. Please contact Sharon Dowds, firstname.lastname@example.org
