What the school offers its staff

About our school

Lewknor is a successful and friendly small school. We currently have 83 children on roll across four classes. It is rated Good by Ofsted and Excellent by SIAMS, with SATS results consistently above county and national averages. Just as importantly, it is a welcoming place: we have brilliant children, an excellent staff team and a very engaged parent community.

The school is supported by a strong team of governors, an active parent group and the wider community. We offer wrap-around care with breakfast and after school clubs. There are also opportunities for children to take part in various art, cooking and sports clubs, and we have regular residential trips for our Upper Junior pupils.


We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
