Lytham Hall Park is a happy and busy community primary school currently catering for over 330 delightful children between the ages of four and eleven years. We are a popular school and we are proud of the excellent reputation we have in our local community. Our school is housed in a modern building with semi-open plan style classrooms and beautiful grounds which we use regularly. We are in the process of increasing in size to a two form entry primary school with an admission number of 60 pupils each year. We have already admitted extra children for the last four years and the numbers will continue to increase for the next three years. A significant building project has now been completed which has provided us with six new classrooms, a music room and a purpose built assembly hall large enough to accommodate all our pupils.
We pride ourselves in offering a curriculum which is creative, challenging and engaging; a curriculum which follows the requirements of the National Curriculum in all areas. Lessons are clearly differentiated to meet the individual needs of all pupils, and we recognise that there are times when every child may need extra support to ensure they reach their true potential. We have a strong music tradition and children of all ages enjoy developing their choral skills. Our school choir perform regularly, both in school and at local venues. Peripatetic teachers offer opportunities for children to play brass, string and wind instruments. Our children’s artistic abilities are encouraged in lessons and through art clubs. Art work is successfully entered into annual competitions and we pride ourselves in the high standard of display in our school. A variety of sporting opportunities are available for the children covering sports such as football, netball, athletics, tag rugby, cricket and short tennis. The school is part of the local football and netball leagues, competing throughout the year. Children frequently take part in competitions festivals and we encourage them to take a pride in representing our school in a sensible and sporting manner. We offer a wide variety of extra curricular clubs for all our children including computer club, sports clubs, art club, gardening club, Ju-jitsu, dance and French. Our Junior Gardeners take great pride in developing our school grounds and as a result of their endeavours we were awarded Best Primary School Grounds by Lytham in Bloom in 2014. We are currently developing further opportunities for outdoor learning through the introduction of a Forest School.
We recognise that the best schools are those who actively listen to their community and encourage their involvement. We see education as a partnership between home and school and support your participation in many ways including class assemblies, regular parent meetings and through our welcoming approach. We have an active Parents Teachers and Friends Association who are keen, not only to raise funds for our school, but also to arrange social events for our community to enjoy time together.
Our school has a unique family ethos which remains at the heart of our success, indeed visitors often comment on the calm, friendly and nurturing atmosphere. Our most recent (May 2013) OfSTED report states our pupils ‘are extremely keen to learn. They have very positive attitudes to work, strongly contributing to their good achievement. They work very well together and enjoy sharing ideas.’ It also describes our pupils’ behaviour as ‘extremely good’ with teachers providing lessons ‘that grab pupils’ attention and fire their enthusiasm’. It is this love of learning which we know will ensure our pupils continued success even as they leave us.
Our school motto - “Discamus As Vivendum, Let’s Learn to Live' encapsulates the attitudes for which we strive, ensuring our children grow into young adults who see learning as an exciting and integral part of their daily lives.
