Lever House Primary School offers a Primary Education to children from the ages of
4 – 11 years. The building is an attractive open-plan design and was built in 1969. It
is equipped to cater for the needs of children of all abilities and interests, and
currently admits 37 children in each academic year.
We provide a safe, happy, stimulating and creative environment for children to achieve their best in all areas of their lives.
We have been awarded the Investors in People Award and the National Healthy Schools Status Award.
- To provide a supportive, secure and stimulating learning
environment within which, each child has the opportunity to reach their full
potential in academic, creative, physical and moral areas.
- To prepare our children for the experiences, opportunities and
responsibilities of adult life, and to develop in them a full appreciation for the
quality of both natural and man-made environments.
Lever House School follows the National Curriculum Programmes of Study as set
down by the Department for Education. These requirements set out the teaching
programmes that all schools have to follow. As part of the National Curriculum there
are also requirements to formally assess the children when they are 7 and again when
they are 11. These come at the end of what are termed Key Stages. Key Stage 1
covers Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Key Stage 2 covers Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. When
the children transfer to High School they enter Key Stage 3.
It is a requirement that we inform parents of the outcome of these assessments against
various levels of achievement that are set down.
The levels we are most concerned
with in the Primary School are Levels 1-5. It is expected that most 7 year olds will
reach Level 2, and most 11 year olds, Level 4.
Lever House is a Community Primary School and as such has regard to the guidelines
issued by the County concerning Curriculum organisation. All schools in the area
follow the National Curriculum but it is very much left to the discretion of the schools
how this curriculum is presented.
There are a wide range of activities children are encouraged to participate in. The PE
curriculum provides activities in dance, games, gymnastics, athletics and swimming
(Years 4 and 5 only).
A variety of sport instructors also come into school to provide extra activity. These
range from Aerobics and Athletics to Football and Dance.
We also offer extra-curricular clubs in cricket, football, rugby, rounders and netball
