Laleham Lea staff show commitment and dedication to each and every child in our community. We firmly believe in putting the child at the centre of everything we do from the warm welcome as you walk through the door in the morning to the playground where all ages play, run and socialise together as one happy family.

‘A high standard of teaching and learning is central to our success; experienced teachers engage young minds helping each developing individual to reach their full potential. ‘Pupils are extremely well known to all staff’ (ISI 2012); ‘the key strength throughout the school is the excellent knowledge teachers have of every pupil evident in the way work is matched to their needs and potential’.
