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.

If you have visited school lately, you may have noticed the fantastic displays in the Lower Hall. Each class has taken a Christmas song and created some artwork to go with it. It is always great to see the different ideas and work that the children produce and it always helps to build the festive feeling. If you haven't had a chance to look at the displays yet, try and take a look in the coming week.
We hope that everyone enjoyed finding out lots of new things about the world as part of our International Week. It was great fun - finding out all the ways in which we're different, but also all of the ways in which we are the same! Here are a few photographs of our Friday dress-up day, when everyone came to school in clothes from all over the world...
Many thanks to all for your support for our lovely, thought-provoking Harvest Festival Assembly for pupils, which took place here at school on Friday. As you know, our fundraising focus was international and local in nature, with donations (including some from pupil's own piggy banks) collected for 'WaterAid', and an amazing quantity of non-perishable food items donated for distribution to needy families and individuals in Sheffield.
We've been really happy to welcome all of our F2 new starters here at school, who have all been having great fun and have settled in really well!
