The first aim of Longton Primary School is to be a caring school where the children work happily to fulfill their potential according to aptitude and ability and where school life is fun!
We aim to give every child the experience of a varied curriculum throughout their time at Longton. Emphasis will be on the core subjects of Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Information and Communication Technology and Religious Education. Children will also be taught the foundation subjects – Technology, History, Geography, Art, Music and Physical Education during each year.
Extra curricular activities play a very important part in the life of the school and help the child to develop as an individual.
It is felt that parental involvement is essential and is actively encouraged. Home-reading, parents helping in school, school visits, Parent Teacher and Friends Association (P.T.F.A.) etc. are a few ways that teachers, children and parents work together for the benefit of the child.
