SATS are OVER!

We did it! Year Six have completed their SATs Tests. They worked supremely hard and we are SO proud of them, regardless of results!

Summer Term at

Livingstone Primary School!

A note from Mr Thornes

Hello and welcome to Livingstone Primary School and our website. 

It's a really exciting time for me having recently started as Headteacher and I'm looking forward to both the challenges and the experience. 

Livingstone is an incredibly warm and friendly place, reflected by both our staff and pupils. We love active learning and active minds here and there's always huge amounts going on across the year groups. The welcome I've received here has been wonderful and the children feel as passionately as I do that this is a great place to be. 

What I do know is that we have a fantastic team of staff here and that we are all trying our hardest to improve every pupil and make sure that school life is fun, stimulating, varied, rigorous but enjoyable. 

I've been in lessons every day so far, and that's exactly what I see. Happy children, feeling a part of a team that feel they can succeed. 

In the next few months I'll be working with the staff, pupils, governors and stakeholders to move the school forward together and make the Livingstone experience an even better one. 

Thank you.

A big well done to the children who represented Livingstone at the English Speaking Union competition at Bedford School on Tuesday 1st May.  
 
Thandi, Abutarab, Lily and our super back up Yumna worked very hard preparing their debate on the topic of ‘We should give someone a compliment everyday’.  Abutarab was the Chair and he spoke clearly and even got a few laughs from the audience. Thandi gave a very confident and clear speech and was able to answer the opposing teams questions well. Lily debated with Priory School on the topic of ‘Headteachers should teach every class once a week’ and asked some great questions.  
All four of them were responsible and confident Livingstone representatives. 
Thank you also to Mrs Dyas for all of her hard work with the children.

 

Well done to the 'Golden Award Winners' this month, who received prizes in assembly for hard work and exemplary behaviour.
