Welcome To Our School

On behalf of everyone at Lee Brigg Infant and Nursery School, I would like to extend a very warm welcome.

We are very proud of our school's caring, positive atmosphere, which we hope will enable your child to feel secure, happy and valued.

We work hard to provide a supportive and stimulating environment where every child can reach their full potential and where children can develop independence, confidence, self-esteem and a lifelong love of learning. We have high expectations and seek to impart in all our children a strong sense of responsibility for their own behaviour, and a respect for the rights of others.

At Lee Brigg Infant and Nursery School we have dedicated, professional staff who are committed to offering your child a successful and happy time at school. Lessons are planned to give children the chance to be curious, reflective and take risks. This allows them to develop resilience. Outstanding teaching and our rich curriculum provides both challenging and collaborative learning opportunities that widen children's horizons, raise aspirations and shows them what they can achieve.

At Lee Brigg Infant and Nursery School we value our close partnerships with parents and are committed to being part of the local community. We look forward to working together with you in helping your child to develop during these very special early and infant years. We hope that you will support us to achieve our aims by becoming part of the life of our school.

I am very proud to be the Headteacher of such a wonderful school where the children really do flourish and are very well prepared - in the widest possible sense - for their future lives.

We would love to tell you more about our school and would like to invite you to come and spend some time with the staff and children of Lee Brigg.

Please do call us to make an appointment. We very much look forward to meeting you.
