Welcome to Lumley Infant and Nursery School website. My name is Tracey Wilson and I am proud to have been the Head Teacher of this wonderful school since 2007. I am also the Acting Head Teacher of Lumley Junior School, a position I have held since January 2020.
Set in beautiful grounds in the village of Great Lumley, we are a vibrant, friendly and caring school with high academic and pastoral standards. We have a wealth of outdoor learning spaces including our own Forest School, allotment, Design and Technology shed and designated outdoor areas attached to each classroom.
We have consistently been graded Outstanding by Ofsted and our most recent inspection was in January 2020. Inspectors reported that “Children thrive in the happy, family atmosphere of this school. All make outstanding progress in their learning and personal development.”
The standard of teaching and learning is extremely high and the behaviour of pupils is exemplary. Our philosophy is very simple and is described in our school motto, “Fun to teach and fun to learn.” Through creative, innovative and engaging activities, our children are inspired, enthused and motivated to learn and have lots and lots of fun along the way!
Our aim is to ensure that every child is encouraged and supported to achieve their potential in all aspects of their development. We want every child to have a dream and reach for the stars and this is reflected in our core values DREAMS. We want our children to be:
D – determined
R – responsible, respectful and resilient
E – enthusiastic and have empathy for others
A – have a positive attitude and aspirations
M – motivated and have good manners
S – successful and know they are special
Our reputation proceeds us and stands the closest of scrutiny. Please don’t just take our word for it, come and visit us and see the range of exciting learning activities and high quality learning environments both indoors and outdoors.
I look forward to welcoming you to our school.
Tracey A. Wilson
