Why choose Locking?

As parents/carers, choosing a school for your child can be daunting. Most of us have been through the process ourselves and understand what a difficult decision it can be. The right school will provide your child with a happy and fulfilling education journey and will care about the same things you do.


Locking Primary School is a wonderful school, situated in the heart of Locking village. All of the staff are committed to providing the children in their care the best possible education. We are dedicated to providing an EXTRAORDINARY education that empowers our children and staff to achieve their best and always be proud of who they are and what they do. We believe every child has the right to receive an extraordinary education. We believe in an inclusive education and endeavour to meet all children's needs.


If you have any questions or would like to visit the school, please contact the school office to arrange an appointment with the Head of School, Natalie Sweet

What makes us unique and wonderful?


  • Our wonderful team. All of our staff are committed to ensuring your child thrives whilst at Locking. We recognise every child is unique and an individual and we want to help them to be the best that they can be: academically, socially and emotionally. 
  • Our wonderful community. At the school, there is a strong sense of community, with the school working closely with families and the local community. Our PTA, called FOLS (Friends of Locking School) works tirelessly to organise superb events for the children and the wider community, not least, but including Fireworks Night and AutumnFest this year
  • Our wonderful and ambitious curriculum. We have recently re-developed our curriculum to ensure it meets the needs of all our children
  • Our wonderful grounds. We are so lucky to have huge grounds for the children to play and enjoy. These are used for playtimes, lunchtimes and PE lessons
  • Our wonderful PE hub of excellence. At Locking we have a PE hub of excellence, led by Lee Molland, Sports Manager for ELAN trust. All children at Locking have one lesson taught by Mr Molland every week. He also organises many cross school sports events throughout the year
  • Our wonderful library. We recently developed our library, which is an unique, calming space where children can develop a love of reading and immerse themselves in a book. Photos soon to follow.


We encourage all children to take responsibility for themselves and supporting others. We have recently appointed

  • playground buddies- to support children on the playground to play games and also support children in resolving conflict
  • librarians- to ensure the library is kept tidy, to scan out books, and support children in making book choices


We also have the following projects in progress, which we aim to have completed by the end of the school year

  • Our wonderful school pond.
  • Our wonderful forest school
  • Our wonderful sensory spaces (inside and outside)
