Message from the headteacher:-
January is a new start to the year – and a new start for me, taking over as the Headteacher of Lutley Primary School! I am looking forward to getting to know you all over the next few months and trying to learn as many names as I can! I have enjoyed 6 very happy years as the Headteacher of Greenfield Primary in Stourbridge and am now ready to take on the challenge of another flourishing Dudley school.
Lutley is a successful school with an excellent reputation within the borough of Dudley. It is a three-form entry school i.e. we have three classes of approximately 28 children in each year group.
The school is built on two floors, which results in all our children being in close proximity. The school achieves an ethos of family care despite its being one of the largest primaries in the borough.
Our children enter the school in Reception from supportive, interested homes. Our induction programme into Reception enables parents to maintain an active partnership in their child’s learning throughout the vital primary years.
We welcome parents into school and endeavour to keep positive communication channels open so that all our families feel able to share hopes, dreams and concerns with us.
We have high expectations at Lutley and we expect everyone to do their best. Not all children are academics so we aim to encourage an atmosphere of respect and celebration where individuals can work towards their unique potential, recognising that best efforts are rewarded and rewarding. As a staff we aim to model this approach through giving or our very best, recognising that we too need to be active in securing individual development to achieve all that we can. Our school vision is to secure learning for all in a climate of independence and mutual care. We want Lutley to be a Learning organisation which is vibrant and creative, where people at all levels are motivated and thrilled by all that education has to offer.
I look forward very much to welcoming you to our school family. I enjoy showing families around school to see teaching and learning in action. Parents can pick up the ‘feel’ of the school at this time and note how children and staff relate to each other. Ours is a happy, secure and rigorous environment and a tour of the school will demonstrate the respect, the fun and the challenge therein.
I look forward to meeting you.
