Community, Courage, Curiosity and Commitment

Our School

 Our school is well maintained and boasts extensive grounds providing a large playing field, a Forest School area and two playgrounds. The outdoor pavilion provides shelter and is used as an outdoor classroom. We have seven main classrooms, the Nursery and the Unit for the teaching of Hearing Impaired Children. All surround a delightful school garden which is the Early Years' outdoor classroom.

Every child is given a Lexden Passport to Tomorrow which contains activities inspired by our values.  


British Value Statement

At Lexden Primary School we value the diversity of backgrounds of all pupils, families and the wider school community.

The Department for Education states that there is a need:
“To create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs”.


Phonics teaching at Lexden Primary

At Lexden Primary we use a six-phase programme called 'Letters and Sounds' designed to help to teach children to read and spell with phonics.  The different phases are directly linked to the reading books that the children take home in our Reception and Year 1 class.

You can find more information and some practical help in this leaflet.  

Below, you can find a link to the Letters and Sounds YouTube page with 100s of lessons you can use at home to support your child's learning. 


Forest Schools

Here at Lexden Primary School we are pleased to be able to offer a Forest School programme, run by a Level 3 Forest School leader and support staff.
