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 and federating with Springfield House School. The federation will enable us to explore ways to further develop the offer in both schools.


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.

Open office laptop download

If you have received a laptop with instructions on installing open office.

Unfortunately on investigation each laptop has remote security by the local authority which prevents its install.

As a quick work around they can log into their school google email and google docs account ( via school website ) and get access to similar software for word processing, spread sheets etc.

The rest of the school software can be accessed by using doddle and mymaths etc as before as they are all web based systems.

Apologies for the confusion we were keen to get the laptops out before the end of term and we had a very short turnaround from when they were delivered.

Please contact the school if you have any further issues and our IT support direct email is : This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. should you have any issues and he will get back to you as soon as possible.

 

HAPPY, SAFE SUMMER

Dear Parents/Carers and students

 

HAPPY, SAFE SUMMER – REMINDER FROM WEST MIDLANDS POLICE

 

The summer holiday is fast approaching, it is important our students are reminded what we, as a school community, expect of them in terms of behaviour while they are enjoying the break.  We also want to ensure they feel confident to keep themselves safe and away from crime and anti-social behaviour.

 

Parents/carers and students should already be aware that as part of our safeguarding arrangements, the school has a two-way information sharing agreement in place with West Midlands Police, and we are active members of the local Police & Schools Panel.  This joint-approach helps us to intervene early to safeguard and to prevent and reduce crime and anti-social behaviour involving our students, and provide support and up-to-date safety messages.

 

In partnership with the police, we would like to signpost you to https://www.west-midlands.police.uk/

Here you will find all the very latest COVID-19 guidance. We continue to thank you all for sticking to the rules and guidelines, you have all contributed to stopping the spread and we appreciate how hard the last few months have been. As some of the rules start being relaxed over the summer we still ask you to remain aware and maintain social distancing in order for us all to stay safe and stop the spread of the virus as we look to enjoy the summer break. Please be mindful of attending any large gatherings, your health and safety and that of your family and friends are important, attending large gatherings heightens the risk of the virus spreading which may impact not just you but those around you.

 

Here are a few other safety reminders:-

 

  • Personal Safety:  Sadly there are people out there who want what we have! We ask you to be vigilant as you enjoy your summer.  Be aware of your surroundings, take care of friends and family members and keep valuables such as phones out of public view whenever possible. We recognise that more and more people are using pedal bikes, especially within our fantastic green spaces across the West Midlands. Please never leave your bikes unattended and always use a sturdy lock to secure it if you ever need to be away from it.

 

  • Social Media: Don’t allow your use of social media to put you at risk of grooming, exploitation or regret in the future.  Use social media positively and avoid being negative about anyone online as comments/actions may be traced back to you and you will be held accountable.

 

 

If you need our help we’re here for you. Ask us a question on our website or speak to us on live chat at www.west-midlands.police.uk. If you don’t have access to the internet, then dial 101 for non-emergency calls, and always dial 999 in an emergency, alternatively Crimestoppers is a service available to report anonymously, you can do this by visiting their website www.crimestoppers-uk.org or by calling 0800 555 111,  this is not however for emergency incidents.
