I am very proud to welcome you to our Federation of Ladysmith Infant and Nursery School and Ladysmith Junior School.
As an Executive Headteacher, I work with the Federation Business Manager and our single Governing Body, to provide strategic leadership for both schools. Each school has a Head of School and senior leaders who are responsible for the leadership of the schools on a day to day basis.
We are a diverse Federation with children and families from all around the world. We teach the children to respect people’s different beliefs, faiths and cultures, and to take an active part in the life of the community. We want to achieve the best outcomes for all the children and families that are part of our community and work closely with all parties to achieve this.
Choosing a school for your child is an important decision. This website can only provide a snapshot of what life is like at the Ladysmith Schools and is no substitute for a visit. We warmly encourage visits to both schools and appointments can be made through the school offices.
We look forward to meeting you in the near future.
Please contact the relevant school office if you would like a paper copy of any of the information contained on this website.
For further information about the schools, please contact the Federation Business Manager, Lorraine Carter, on 01392 255554.
School Radio launching today!
Don't forget the return of the Pop Up Cafe and Easter Trail is tomorrow after school, which is organised by our fabulous CPTT.
#BigWalkAndWheel is happening for the next two weeks. Walk, bike or scoot to and from school to see how many active journeys we can have over the Federation
Year 2 had a fantastic day out @NMAPlymouth Plymouth Aquarium on Monday - Friday the Turtle was a firm favourite!
Our Reception children had a fab time @PrincessTorquay watching ‘The Tiger who came to Tea’ We had lunch overlooking the marina too! There were some tired children (and staff!) on the coach back from Torquay!
We promise you won’t have too much washing! Last day tomorrow. They should sleep well for the weekend.
This morning saw the children learning survival skills in the woods; they worked together to build shelters and lit fires using steel flints. The children’s confidence, especially with heights, is building throughout the week: we’re so impressed.
The challenge course (also known as the mud run) has proved popular, even with those who weren’t initially keen on getting muddy. No photos from this evening’s campfire, but the marshmallows have gone down a treat and the children are still out there, singing and dancing!
