Dear Parent(s) and Carers,

On behalf of the entire school team, staff, children and governors, I would like to take this opportunity of welcoming you to Leen Mills Primary School's website.

We hope that you will enjoy browsing our school website and that it gives you a flavour of what life is like at Leen Mills Primary School.
The website will provide you with a range of information from our visions, aims and curriculum to our policies and practice.

At Leen Mills Primary school we provide opportunities for children to develop as curious, creative and confident learners.This is achieved through a curriculum which focuses on more than just English and Maths.
The curriculum covers a full range of learning. It includes the EYFS and National Curriculum, which all schools are legally required to teach, but emphasis is placed on the wider aspects to provide rich and varied experiences for all. These include a range of extra-curricular activities that the school provides in order to enrich experiences for the children. It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’, that is what the children learn from the way they are valued and the way they are expected to behave.

The staff and governors of Leen Mills Primary school believe that children should learn to value themselves, their families and friends. They should develop qualities such as kindness and tolerance of others and a regard for truth and honesty. They should acquire a positive approach to life and learning and take pride in their achievements and those of others.

Our curriculum is designed to prepare pupils to respond positively to the opportunities and challenges of today’s fast changing world, to understand their heritage and to take their place in society; recognising their role within the global community.

We want our pupils to derive pleasure, satisfaction and develop resilience from the wide range of activities we offer:
• All children receive first hand experiences beyond the classroom; this is achieved through educational visits (locally and beyond), residential visits for all classes in Key Stage 1 and 2, visitors to the school and cultural activities e.g. Young Voices; the intention of this to widen children’s horizons and to encourage aspiration.
• Our school is a Singing Hub school and we value the importance of the arts and sports on children’s education
• We provide strong nurture support for children and families through our Tree House provision
• To develop a sense of belonging, we want our children to take an active part in school life. This is achieved, in part, through our ‘Creative curriculum’ sessions, Enterprise week, Playground Buddies and Sports Ambassador programmes.
• We are pro-active in trying to engage parents with their children’s education through meet and greet sessions with Tree House (nurture provision), Class dojo, stay and read sessions, open afternoons and enterprise week; we try and provide a balanced view to parents so that they are aspirational for their children.


If you would like to visit our friendly school, do not hesitate to make an appointment.
If your child has any additional needs and would like to have a conversation with us, please contact Miss Hayley Owen, who is the school's SENco. Please telephone the school for an appointment. Tel: (0115) 9536688.

Our latest Ofsted report can be found in the ‘Important Information’ section. If you require a paper copy of this, or any other information contained within this website, please ask at the school office.

We are currently working in partnership with the George Spencer Teaching School Alliance and with other schools across the Hucknall family.

In the meantime, I will look forward to welcoming you and your child as members of our school community and the Leen Mills family and I hope that you will be with us for many happy and successful years.

Russell Tew
Head Teacher
