Consultation to become an Academy within a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT)
As you may already be aware, Governors are proposing that Lower Farm Primary School becomes an academy and joins with a group of other schools, already part of a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) called Mercian Trust. For more information please visit the 'About Us' and 'About Our School' section of this website.
Our main aim for every pupil is to provide a happy, stimulating and safe learning environment, where every child is appreciated and confident so that they can achieve their personal best. We believe children learn best when they are happy and Lower Farm is a very nurturing and inclusive school. The school has a range of pastoral support in place and recently opened an onsite Nurture House to further enrich the provision for pupils.
Lower Farm Primary School is a two form entry primary school for children aged 2 to 11. We offer funded places for 15 hours per week for eligible 2 year olds and for 15 hours and 30 hours per week for eligible 3 year olds. At present we have over 450 pupils on roll.
The school has a strong focus on the well-being of pupils. Pupils’ personal development is central to many of the activities of the school throughout the day. The curriculum that leaders have designed and implemented contributes significantly to pupils’ enjoyment of their school life. The headteacher is committed to promoting a culture of high expectations to ensure that pupils fulfil their potential.
