St. Thomas' Church of England Primary School

St. Thomas’ Lydiate Primary School in Kenyons Lane is a Church of England (Voluntary Aided) School, providing education for children from four to eleven years of age, within the caring ethos of a Christian environment.

The school has been in its present building since 1976, when the children first moved here from the old school in Southport Road, there were 63 on roll. Our numbers continue to grow and we have extended the building twice; we now have 178 children on roll.

At our school we believe that we provide a secure, friendly and happy environment for all our children. We also believe that children will be more likely to achieve their full potential in school if there is an effective partnership between home and school. We value our parents side of the partnership and welcome them into our classrooms at any time.

Our school in Lydiate provides a dedicated team of teachers, ancillary staff, Governors and PTA committee members who all work together for the benefit of the children in our care.

St. Thomas' Church of England First Class Nursery

“First Class” Nursery provides a challenging safe and caring environment for children from age 2 ˝  years old to school age. The staff are extremely highly qualified and deliver a high quality EYFS curriculum which stretches the children’s imaginations and captures their interests. The OFSTED Report in 2006 noted that in all areas achievement was good and they particularly highlighted the fact that the children “are happy and settled due to the calm, positive interaction of the staff”.

 The nursery provides an excellent stepping stone to school life and the children who enter our Foundation Stage class are very well prepared for their transition to St Thomas’ School.

St. Thomas' C. of E. Downholland/Haskayne Primary School

Downholland Haskayne primary school is a Church of England Voluntary Aided school and offers education to children aged four to eleven. A small village school teaching thirty children, we are situated in a delightful rural
setting at the Southern end of Haskayne village.

In the morning there are three classes: Reception - Year 1 & 2, Year 3 & 4
and Year 5 & 6. In the afternoon these come together as two classes:
Reception - Year 2 and Year 3 - 6.

Induction activities for 3/4 year olds begin in the January before the child
starts in September. This induction programme is tailor made for the child
concerned leading to full time in July.

We have a pleasant and spacious playing field adjacent to the school which
is used extensively in the summer for sporting and social events. An excellent outdoor play area, with large fixed apparatus, suitable for 3-11 year olds was installed in 2004.

At Haskayne School a professional, committed and dedicated staff works
closely together with the Governors, parents and community for the benefit
of the children at the school. We provide a family atmosphere in which we
value each child and the contribution they make to the life of the school.

Following our recent successful OFSTED inspection we continue to grow
towards academic excellence.
