Welcome to our school
Welcome to Lydgate Infant School. We are a happy, caring and inclusive school where diversity is valued and celebrated. We believe that learning should be creative, enjoyable and exciting and that the time your child spends here will lay a firm foundation for his or her future.
Our school is a large setting, providing for up to 360 children aged from 4 to 7 years. We are careful to create a ‘small school feel’ for our younger pupils, building our provision to capture the benefits of our larger scale as the children become older. The school has a strong relationship with its sister setting, Lydgate Junior School (about 5 minutes’ walk away), to which the overwhelming majority of pupils progress when entering the junior phase of their education (click here for more information).
Although Victorian in character (built in 1907), our two-storey school building is a modern and bright environment for our young learners, with all 12 of the school’s classrooms having been refurbished in the last 5 years (and each containing an Interactive Whiteboard and bank of computers for pupil use). We have 2 large halls, a school library and several specially furnished ‘break-out’ spaces for small group and intervention work.
In addition, the school has a separate Dining Hall (refurbished in 2016), and prepares freshly cooked meals for pupils direct on the premises each day, meeting the high standards of the ‘Food for Life’ partnership programme in recognition of the quality of its meals for pupils.
We hope that our website will provide you with all the information you need about our school. However, if you would like any further information, or would like to tour the school, please get in touch.

As usual, Phileas and I are starting our summer holidays in Mr Bromage's pond! I hope that you have a lovely holiday time too - just before you start, though, click on your yeargroup blog to see what everyone's been up to in this last week of term!
This week it was Philippa's turn to help in the greenhouse! What have you been up to? Take a look at our yeargroup blogs to find out...
Message from Broomhill Library - Silly Squad Summer Reading Challenge!
The Summer Reading Challenge this year will be a celebration of funny books, happiness and laughter. This year’s Challenge will be a bit different as libraries are currently closed so you will need to take part online. To join in the fun you will need to register online and read six books of your choice. You can still borrow books from the library by using our online E-Library. You can find lots to read and listen to, just go to https://sheffield.rbdigitalglobal.com/home. You will need to have a library card to be able to use the E-Library but you can still join at https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/home/libraries-archives/join-the-library. Books that you have at home can also count towards your challenge.
You can sign in at https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk
Children without access to e-books can read their own books or borrow from the Library once we can restart. We will initially be starting an "Order and collect" service, hopefully in the next few weeks. We hope to be able to hand out the usual rewards for completing the Challenge, such as stickers, medals and certificates from September onwards. For further information, please check our website: www.broomhill-library.org.uk or telephone: 0114 2308637. Please don't leave a message, as we're not there yet.
