    Welcome to Lipson Vale Primary School’s Website which we hope you will find both useful and informative.

    Its purpose is to give you an overview of the school, a snap-shot if you like, of its inner workings. Lipson Vale Primary School is a school that works hard to be the hub of its local community. It was built in 1953 and has since undergone three phases of extension and modernisation. It is a two form entry school and provides accommodation for up to 420 pupils and 75 staff. There are 14 classes, with two classes in Foundation, four in KS1 and eight in KS2.We have worked hard over recent years to create an educational environment which is stimulating and empowering, as well as safe and secure – a school that is fit for purpose. We value the opinions of our school community; the children, parents, staff, visitors and governors, and in partnership work together for the good of everyone. We have included some helpful links to support with home learning and also some of our key policies and procedures. We hope that as you investigate this website you will discover a school that has the child at its centre. We all care passionately about education and recognise that our role is to provide opportunities that will encourage the children in our school to become lifelong learners with the capacity to show humility, intelligence and self belief. If after exploring the website you have unanswered questions then feel free to contact the school and arrange a visit. We would be delighted to meet you and show you around. Thank you for taking the time to look at our site.

    Kind regards
