Below is a copy of our school's latest brochure - please feel free to come and get a hard copy from the School Office. We also operate an open-door policy, so we will be delighted to show you round the school whenever you are free.
At Lydiate Primary School we have the highest standards of learning in Maghull and Lydiate. The SATS celebration document below will show you how our children made fabulous progress from Year 1 all the way up to Year 6.
You will also find a handout that might help you with your child's reading - it is a must-read document for anyone who wants to encourage their child to read.
A further document that you may find helpful is the document referring to the Prevent Strategy, which has been much in the news recently. This paper will help you see how we are supporting you in helping your child enjoy British society and British values.
In our school, we have a range of reading scemes, which are book-banded to allow children to experience a wide-range of texts. Our main scheme is Oxford Reading Tree, which is then supplemented by ProjectX books amongst others. For phonics, we use the DFE's sponsored prograsmme 'Letters and Sounds' supplemented by resources from Hamilton Trust and Twinkl.
2016 was the first sitting of the revamped Year 2 tests - below you will find a presentation we gave to parents to explain them; they are daunting, but we are determined to support all of our children to achieve the very best they can.
