Are you looking for a Reception place in September 2024? To book a place for one of our open mornings, please call the school office.


Lime Walk Primary School is a one form entry school with children starting Reception in the autumn term prior to their fifth birthday and provides 30 hours Nursery provision for pre-school children. 

The school has 8 classrooms and extensive grounds including nature areas, playgrounds and a large playing field.

We are an inclusive school that engages with all members of the school community to see that all children receive an education that is aspirational, inspires, engages passions and one that will live fondly in their memories for many years to come.  Every day children build on existing knowledge and learn to apply skills through a range of activities independently and collaboratively.  As part of our learning culture, lessons are adapted to meet individual needs and ensure that learning is relevant and personalised to enable everyone to achieve and succeed through a variety of outcomes.  Every child is encouraged to make links between concepts taught in the classroom and their own experiences.

At the heart of the school’s values is the desire to create an environment where children have the opportunity to succeed and utilise their ability to make healthy choices. 

I hope that you find the information on our web page useful - please feel free to contact us should you have any queries.
