Hello everyone and welcome to our school website.
We hope you find it useful, informative and it gives you a real flavour of what a great place Long Lee Primary and the Footprints Federation is for children to learn.
I have the great privilege of being the Headteacher of Long Lee Primary School and feel very proud of our friendly, popular and caring school that is filled with enthusiastic and dedicated pupils. We have an equally happy team of staff who are highly skilled and committed to providing high quality teaching and learning to all of our pupils. Children are ‘praised loudly and blamed softly’ and learning is celebrated.
We value our diverse and multi-cultural community and use this as a driver to develop tolerance and respect. We value our supportive families and the wider community. We all share the same goal of every child fulfilling their full potential regardless of any barriers to their learning.
Our pupils are nurtured, well supported and challenged through our broad and balanced curriculum. We have high aspirations for our pupils to have a love of learning, curiosity, independence and life skills throughout their time at Long Lee and life beyond. At Long Lee our aim is ‘to be the best that we can be’; we want all our children to be excited by learning, to take risks, seek challenge, ask questions and persevere. We have an exciting curriculum that allows children to develop skills for lifelong learning.
Our curriculum provides lots of enrichment opportunities through Drama, after school clubs, weekly music lessons led by a specialist teacher, inspirational visitors in school and regular trips. Children learn through real life experiences and we believe that these vital opportunities help children to find out about the World beyond their school; to ensure they have opportunities to write and talk about as well as memories that last a life time.
