Lydgate Infant | Welcome
Aiming High and Having Fun!

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.

Kind Regards,
Dewi Bromage (Mr)

Mini Olympics at Lydgate Infant School

Officials checked their watches, final preparations were made and the summer sun beat down strongly on the competitors.  This wasn't a scene from the World Cup in Russia but from Lydgate Infant School's Mini Olympics which took place on Wednesday 4th July.  It was a full day of activities in which Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2 classes all took part.

Just like in a real Olympics, our athletes were tested on their speed, agility and teamwork.  They competed in 10 different events, including hurdles, skipping, speed bounce and bean bag biathlon.  Despite the warm weather, the children performed admirably: cheering each other on, listening carefully to instructions and giving their all in each event.

We would like to say a big thank you to Luke and Kyle from Forge School Sport Partnership who organised and ran the events and to Mrs Wymer and all the Year 5 Playmakers from Lydgate Junior School who explained the rules of each game, encouraged the athletes and recorded the scores.  Lastly, thanks to all the children who took part in this fantastic day of sport.  Well done everyone!
