Lightcliffe C of E Primary School

Welcome to Lightcliffe School!

We are proud of the fact that for over 140 years the school has been at the heart of the community of Lightcliffe.

We believe strongly in a partnership between the home and the school, which will unlock each child’s full potential. Our Aim, as indicated in the Mission Statement, is to give everyone the opportunity to succeed.

We hope that you will find the information contained within this website both helpful and informative. You will find details of a practical nature, but also an indication of the type of school we are. We value the contribution of all aspects of the curriculum in developing a child’s understanding of the world around them, whilst obviously ensuring that the basic skills necessary in life are well grounded.

The way children relate to one another and how we relate to them, to you the parents and the community at large is also important to us. We encourage what we hope is a climate of participation and mutual trust built on Christian values.

We do know, however, that things can go wrong. Please let us know about anything you are worried or unhappy about. We really would prefer you to discuss it with us.

We like to hear good news as well, so do please let us know that too!

We look forward to receiving your child into school.

We hope that Evan Charles Sutherland Walker would still be proud today of the school he so generously founded for the parish of Lightcliffe. “Not,” he said, “for any personal glorification, but for an honest desire to do good.”
