At Lexden Primary School we aim to provide every child with a stimulating and caring environment where creativity and challenge inspire academic success and individual fulfillment.  We work tirelessly to unlock the potential of every child and encourage them to achieve as highly as possible.

Our school is lively and inclusive; we are proud of the wide range of learning opportunities provided for all children, both within the curriculum and through our links to the wider community.

The teaching and staff form a dedicated team fully committed to meeting the needs of our children and we encourage a close partnership with parents/carers to ensure that children develop the social and emotional skills that are required to get the most out of life.

We hope that our prospectus will encourage you to come for a visit and experience for yourselves the energy and enthusiasm which characteristics our school.

  Nursery Places Available from September 2020 

Lexden Primary School benefits from a  thriving 26 place Nursery class led by a qualified teacher.

Offering both full and part time sessions for three and four year olds, Nursery children are taught and nurtured  in a caring, stimulating and challenging learning environment built around the children’s needs, interests and passions.  Our experienced team of Nursery staff work in partnership with parents to cultivate children’s wellbeing, enabling them to become confident, resilient and independent learners.

Parents are able to pay for their sessions via Government funding vouchers (15hr Free Early Years Education Entitlement or 30hr Extended Entitlement) or pay the school directly for additional sessions over their free entitlement. Children who attend whole day sessions are able to book and pay for a nutritious hot school lunch. The school also runs a popular (pre-bookable) Breakfast Club that Nursery children are welcome to attend dependent upon availability.

To register your interest in a Nursery place, please complete the ‘Nursery Place, Registration of Interest Form’ found under the 'NURSERY' tab above and return it to the school office marked FAO of Charmaine Scott.

We will be delighted to invite you in to visit the school as soon as the current social distancing restrictions are lifted.

We look forward to meeting you and your family very soon.
