A very warm welcome to the Five Lanes Primary School Website from Mrs Simpson (Headteacher). The purpose of the website is to give you a feeling for our school if you don't already know us, and to relay important information if you do.
Five Lanes is a popular two form entry school, serving the families of the Wortley community. The well being of our children is at the heart of our work, and we are proud to provide an outstanding level of personal development and care, guidance and support, which in turn allows the children to achieve academically.
The school's mission statement, Aiming High, is reflected in pupil's good behaviour. The caring attitudes they show towards each other and the adults who work with them are often commented on by visitors. Their good attitudes to learning help them make good progress and achieve well in the classroom.
Our curriculum is broad and exciting, and this means pupils of all ages and abilities make good progress. Children enjoy school, and this is reflected in our higher than average attendance rates as our pupils enjoy school and are eager to attend.
Our modern building, along with extensively developed grounds, is an ideal place to enjoy learning. Five Lanes is a special place to learn and grow, where children can achieve their full potential in a happy environment.
Our school enjoys great support from many people, not least parents and governors. The Teacher and Children Association works tirelessly to raise money so that children can enjoy many curriculum enhancements, such as additional resources, and funding for educational visits and special visitors. This greatly supports our ability to provide a curriculum that is vibrant, meaningful, and full of memorable experiences.
Parents, carers and pupils are proud of our school. Why not visit us and see why?
