Welcome to Bishop Lonsdale CE (VC) Primary Academy website.
I am delighted to be the newly appointed principal of such a welcoming and friendly school.
I am proud to lead and support the children, staff and academy family with our motto of 'Believe, Achieve, Inspire'.
Here at Bishop Lonsdale we are very proud of our values, Christian ethos, caring community, children and staff. Together we work hard to provide an exciting and interesting educational experience for all of our fantastic children. Our priority is to ensure all children make at least good progress whilst they are in our care. Our community is also very important to us.
We have good links with Holy Trinity Church and use these links to participate in many Christian celebrations throughout the year, supported by Rev'd Jules Walker and our parish worker Sylvia Bainbridge. We aim to enrich the understanding of our children in being part of a multi-cultural society, celebrating British values, diversity and equality. We value and welcome all faiths and non-faith because we value and respect all God’s children and their families. In our Church Academy Inspection, called SIAMS, we were graded as outstanding.
We are also part of the family of St Chad's Academies Trust who work with us on our journey to excellence through effective challenge and support.
We aim to ensure that our children make good progress by feeling safe, happy, secure, confident and enthusiastic about their learning experiences. We also believe that success is measured not only academically, but personally, socially and spiritually. High self esteem is encouraged, high expectations, standards and values are fostered and progress and achievement are positively monitored and celebrated. Nurturing each child’s uniqueness and responding to their individual needs matters here at Bishop Lonsdale.
Our relationship with our families is very important to us and we welcome parents/carers feedback. We believe children and parents/carers views matter and make a difference.
Our website will provide you with information about our academy, but please don't hesitate to contact us should you require further information.
You are very welcome to visit in person; please contact the school by email or telephone to make an appointment at email@example.com or 01785 336512. Visits to our academy are strongly encouraged and a very warm welcome awaits you.
Miss Karen Taylor
