Return to Our School


Welcome to Longlands Primary School Website, which has been designed to keep parents and carers informed.  We hope that if you are applying for a place at Longlands, this website will answer many of your questions.

Please see the short video clip to show you what life in our EYFS unit is like. If you have further questions, office staff will be happy to arrange a suitable time for me to telephone you and explain a little more about our school.

As Headteacher, it is my privilege to work with a dedicated and enthusiastic team of staff who work hard to create an exciting and challenging learning environment where everyone is committed to the highest possible achievement for all children. We believe in building a strong partnership with parents and carers and value their contribution to school life. Our school serves a community which is socially, culturally and linguistically diverse and we consider this diversity to be an asset, which enriches the educational experience we can offer our children. We also have a very strong commitment to inclusion.

Everyone at Longlands Primary School thinks that it is a very special place and we are sure you will think so as well!

Ashleigh Calver, Interim Headteacher.
