Lessness Heath Primary School

We want to work side-by-side with parents in order to achieve our aims, which are:

To ensure that all children reach the highest standards possible – academically, socially and physically.

To develop children’s critical and questioning abilities, so that they become adults who can question the persuasiveness of others and think for themselves.

In order to achieve these aims, we will:

prioritise the basic skills of reading, writing and number within a varied and stimulating


help children develop thinking skills through speaking and listening activities across the curriculum.

celebrate and extend children’s strengths, skills and abilities.

model and insist on socially acceptable behaviour, both in and out of school.

extend children’s appreciation of and participation in the arts.

encourage and extend children’s sporting and athletic abilities.

provide a safe, attractive and stimulating environment in which all our children can thrive.

encourage the moral and personal development of our children and raise their awareness of the diverse society of which they are a part so that they will value the differences of others.

care for and nurture our children to enable them to become happy, healthy and well-adjusted young people.

ensure that in all aspects of school life children have equality of opportunity regardless of gender, race, class, disabilities, special educational needs or home background.


The school curriculum outlines the subjects that are taught in school. Each curriculum area has policy documents and schemes of work, which are under regular review. You can make an appointment to see them or can talk to your child's teacher.

We teach English, mathematics, science, information and communication technology (ICT), design technology (DT), history, geography, religious education (RE), physical education (PE), music and art. We are very proud of our health education (we were the first school in Bexley to receive the Healthy School Award) and citizenship (we are the only school in Bexley to have the Schools' Curriculum Award).

Additionally, we have been awarded the Basic Skills Quality Mark - a badge of recognition for excellence in teaching reading, writing and number. At key stage 2 we have also introduced French into our curriculum. The foundation stage (nursery and reception) follows a different curriculum designed to build on what the children already know and bring to school and to prepare them for the national curriculum to come. This foundation stage curriculum is based on six areas of learning: 1) personal, social and emotional development; 2) language and literacy; 3) mathematics; 4) knowledge and understanding of the world; 5) physical development; 6) creative development.

Extra-curricular Activities

As far as possible, we try and integrate one subject with another, to make learning more relevant. We also try to give children as many out of the classroom experiences as possible (trips, workshops etc) to bring learning to life. Throughout the year we offer a variety of after-school and lunchtime clubs. This year teachers have taken a variety of clubs including choir, knex, art, handwriting, sewing and dancing. Clubs change each year as they very much depend on the current teaching staff’s areas of expertise and other commitments.
