PUPIL CAPACITY 119 (currently on roll: 103)

The villages of Linby and Papplewick are situated approximately 8 miles north of Nottingham, close to the town of Hucknall. Most of the parish of Linby cum Papplewick, is rural/residential in character, lying on the edge of Sherwood Forest.

The school is a CLASP building, erected in 1968 to replace the old school. It is situated on the edge of the village, surrounded by fields and gardens. It has a rural play area with a playing field, hard surface play areas, covered area, a wooded area, seating and a separate key stage one outdoor work area – part covered. There is one small school hall used for worship, P.E., lunches etc., 4 classrooms, and two additional teaching rooms for group and individual work.

The school intake is varied - at present approximately a quarter of the children come from the villages of Linby and Papplewick, the rest choosing to come to the school from the nearby estates of Hucknall and surrounding area. The school therefore has an interesting mix of children living in rural and urban areas. The school is commonly oversubscribed.

The school enjoys very close links with the parents who are welcome at all times and encouraged to become partners in the education process. Links with the local community and Parish Church are strong. The Rector of the Parish is a school Governor.

15% of the children are on the special needs register. 14% of the children receive free school meals.

The school sets high standards for behaviour and reviews rules annually with the children who have a behaviour contract to sign. Parental expectations are high and the school works hard to achieve high standards.

There is a broad range of extracurricular activities and clubs including prayer club, lego engineers, choir, crafts, hockey, basketball, football, tennis, table tennis, cricket and dance. The school also provides peripatetic piano and ukulele.

The day-to-day smooth running of the school depends on having a staff who can work together sharing ideas and practice. The Governors highly value the contributions all staff make, are very encouraging and supportive, and take an active part in the life of the school.
