If your child presents symptoms whilst at school you will be called and must collect your child as a matter of urgency.
Welcome to Lindsworth School a provision in which all staff work together to support pupils develop their academic and social skills whist encouraging growth in their emotional and mental health well-being. We are a staff team who have high expectations of each and every pupil who attend, inspiring them to achieve success to support them in the next phase of their education, training or employment. We are committed to creating well rounded individuals and believe that in order to do this, we must adopt the philosophy that “One size fits NONE”. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum which provides pupils with a wealth of opportunities to expand their experiences. Individualisation is a key focus in all aspects of school life from individualised lessons to behaviour targets and intervention packages for those requiring extra support.
We are proud of the relationships we have built over the years with pupils, parents and a variety of external agencies and this has strengthened the collaborative work and the provision on offer to our pupils.
As a whole school we constantly reflect on our practices and use this to focus improvement and drive initiatives which will enhance the provision. This has taken us through a range of notable achievements such as improving teaching and learning, securing a “Good” from Ofsted.
All the pupils who attend our school are unique however one key factor we believe they all have in common is “they are all capable of amazing things” and at Lindsworth we create an aspirational culture to facilitate this, where success is celebrated.
We hope you find the website information informative, if you do require any further please do not hesitate to contact us.

It is with regret that I am writing to inform you that due to staff shortages the school will be closed on Thursday 14th and Friday 15th January 2021.
School will reopen on Monday, 18th January 2021. We will be operating morning provision only until 12.30pm on Monday and Tuesday and expect to be fully reopened on Wednesday. Pupils entitled to free school meals who are in school will receive a packed lunch on these days. Staff will continue to contact your child daily in order to support their learning.
The Lateral Flow Device (LFD) test is now in place so please remember to return your signed consent form on your child’s first day back next week.
Should you need to contact the school please email
These are exceptionally challenging times and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our parents/carers for their continued support and for the very kind and thoughtful messages that we have received.
At 8pm last night, January 4th 2021, the Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that from today all schools should move to remote education except for those pupils whose parents/carers are key workers and the most vulnerable pupils.
On this basis we will offer places to pupils who most need them. Depending on demand we may have to offer part time placements.
From Wednesday only those pupils who have been offered a specific place will attend school. This arrangement will stay in place until further notice.
Your child’s form tutor and PAL will be contacting you to discuss remote learning. This will involve daily contact from them at a set agreed time to speak with every pupil and support their learning remotely. Staff will be delivering remote learning packs to your home on a weekly basis and complete safe and well checks.
Pupils who are entitled to free school meals will receive packed lunches every week whilst we await further clarification from the government.
I know these are worrying times for many of our families and I hope we are able to fully reopen to all our pupils in the very near future. We will remain in contact with you through this national lockdown.
If you have any further questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the Pastoral Managers.
