A Catholic Independent Primary School for boys and girls aged 3 to 11

29 Peaks Hill, Purley, Surrey, CR8 3JJ


‘Pupils’ demonstrate high levels of respect for one another. They are extremely inclusive and respectful of other faiths and cultures. They view diversity as enriching their school community and their personal development. Older pupils explained that they do not see anyone as being different because we are all different. The outstanding respect that pupils show for one another and for adults is securely founded on the school’s Catholic ethos and mission statement.’ (ISI Inspection February 2022)

Laleham Lea School has always been and remains an inclusive family at the heart of the local community. Our mission statement is at the heart of everything we do as the Laleham Lea family, both in and out of school life.

Recognising that Gospel values are central to the life of the school, we at Laleham Lea aim to create a loving, welcoming environment in which our children may grow intellectually, socially and emotionally; an environment in which their talents are recognised and fostered and their weaknesses treated with compassion; an environment which provides quality teaching and learning within a balanced curriculum framework and which helps every child to reach their true potential.

Together with Parents, who are the first educators, we aim to lead our children towards tolerance, understanding and sensitivity to the needs of others so that they may grow up as well balanced individuals with a strong sense of personal identity and an awareness of God’s love.

We believe that equality at our school transcends all aspects of school life and is the responsibility of every member of the school and wider community. Every member of the Laleham Lea community should feel safe, secure, valued and of equal worth.

At Laleham Lea equality is a key principle for treating people with dignity and respect irrespective of their age, disability, gender, ethnicity, religious beliefs/faith, sexual orientation or any other recognised protected characteristic under the Equality Act 2010.
