Welcome to Lydiate Primary School from all the staff and Mrs Forshaw, our Headteacher.
I am delighted to welcome you to our new school website and I hope you find it useful. Thank you for all of your ideas about the new website, logo and motto, which we have incorporated in this design. Our new motto is 'Inspire, Achieve, Prepare for Life' which says it all about our mission here. As Headteacher, my aim, along with all the staff is to provide the very best education for your children so they grow up to be very confident, happy and successful in all they do.
We are a thriving, happy school which is always striving to improve which I hope is reflected throughout the website. You should find all of the information you might need to access inside the website.
If you would like any further information on anything you have seen on the website or would like paper copies of any information, please do ask the office.
If you are a prospective parent, please do not hesitate to get in touch and come and have a look at our wonderful school. I would be more than happy to give you a guided tour.
