On behalf of the staff, children and governors it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Latton Green Primary Academy and Nursery.

Children here are recognised as unique individuals with specific talents and needs, where they are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure they are happy, confident and that they are provided with needs both relevant now and for their future.

Through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning and curiosity that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We believe in ensuring that children receive a well-rounded curriculum; where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential, this is seen both academically as well as in the specialist teaching of sports, art, music and Spanish. Our children are encouraged to explore, discover and question through a range of exciting learning opportunities both within and outside the classroom.

The school has a dedicated team that works hard to reach high standards in everything we do and this is further embedded through our successful relationships with parents, the local community and the other local schools within NET. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school and regard you as an active partner in your child's education and value your interest and support.

You’ll find our classrooms to be hives of activity and full of creativity and learning, making Latton Green a special place indeed for children. The staff endeavour to provide a calm and stimulating environment where good behaviour and mutual respect is modelled by everyone and where everyone is valued.

If you would like to know more about our school, you are very welcome to come and visit. The children of Latton Green very much enjoy talking about and sharing their achievements and our successes.
