Mission Statement
To create a safe and happy learning environment with high expectations where each child is encouraged and supported to reach his or her full potential.

About Our School
Larkrise is a Community Primary School for infant and junior boys and girls aged from four to eleven years.  We aim to provide a caring, supportive and stimulating environment where children are motivated to develop lively, enquiring minds and to express themselves fully in a variety of ways. 


Admission Arrangements
Parents of prospective pupils are welcome to visit the school with or without their children and appointments can be made through the office.

Children start at Larkrise in the September after their fourth birthday and will be part-time or full-time depending on their birth dates.

We strongly recommend that you talk to your pre-school provider if you have any concerns about whether your child is ‘ready’ for school.  We will be happy to help with any worries you might have about your child’s maturity.

Admission Criteria
There is no guaranteed place for children living in the priority admissions area.  However, children living in the priority admissions area who submit an application by the closing date will be given a place.  The following criteria are used to allocate places if we are oversubscribed:

Brothers and/or sisters already at Larkrise

Foundation Stage

The Foundation Stage Curriculum for children in their first year at school is organized into the following six areas with the emphasis on learning through play:

Personal, social and emotional development;

Communication, language and literacy;

Mathematical development;

Knowledge and understanding of the world;

Physical development;

Creative development.

We extend the Foundation Stage into children’s second year in school because we know that they continue to need elements of this approach throughout their primary education.  This is often particularly important for summer-born children.

Year One to Six

The National Curriculum for Years One to Six is organised into the ‘core’ subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and the following ‘foundation’ subjects:

Information and Communication Technology (ICT)

Design and Technology (DT);



Art and design;


Physical Education (PE);

Religious Education (RE);

And, Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE).

ICT and RE are often seen as core subjects with English, Maths and Science given the higher priority in allocating time.
