As parents or carers, choosing a school for your child can be challenging. Most of us have been through the process ourselves so we understand. We’d like to help you. We'd be delighted to walk you around the school (following Covid secure guidelines), answer any questions and help through any questions around the admissions process if needed.
We are a well-established village school. Village schools help keep communities alive. They are much-loved establishments, at the heart of their community, where people meet each other, form friendships and are places where the community gathers for special occasions.
Being semi-rural with beautiful, natural greenspaces, Locking Primary School provides a fresh and clean environment in which to learn and play. We work to prepare our children for secondary school of which there are many to choose from locally. We are well placed to support families with these choices as we work with and have established relationships with all secondary schools in the county and have been continually developing this for many years.
Our children are well supported, are challenged and inspired by our excellent staff, who aim to provide an extraordinary education that brings out the best in all of our young people, regardless of their ability or background. By being a part of Extend Learning Academies Network we work very closely together with our other schools across the area. Because of this we have access to large sports, cultural and arts events. Working together, our teachers are able to consistently broaden their skills in foundation subjects such as art, music and sports/PE.
If you would like your child to attend our school, please read through full details of our admission arrangements (link below). Prospective parents are always welcome to visit the school to meet with the Headteacher, Roxanne Simpson and see the school in action. Please telephone us on 01934 822867 to make an appointment.
