A message from the Headteacher:
I am delighted on behalf of the staff, Governors and children to welcome you to Livingstone. We are a friendly and caring school and we work hard to secure good relationships with everyone in our community.
Every child is unique. We have high expectations of our pupils and will support each individual to realise their potential. We respect and value each child and family. When your child becomes a pupil at Livingstone then you become a member of the Livingstone family.
With your help, we will provide opportunities for your child to develop a full range of intellectual, social, physical and emotional abilities in a secure and stimulating environment. Our curriculum is broad and challenging with a strong focus on the basic skills of literacy, oracy and numeracy. We expect and achieve high standards of behaviour based on mutual respect. We have a dedicated and experienced staff who are always ready to help you and your child.
We have some remarkable young people at Livingstone - your children! I look forward to joining you on your child’s learning journey.
Welcome to Livingstone!

Where to find us:
We are looking forward to lots of scientific activities as part of British Science Week.
We started science week with a great assembly from Blazing Babsy from 'Mad Science'.
She did lots of experiments to teach us all about forces.
We are also looking forward to visits from Lockheed Martin (who will be exploring rockets with Years 2-4)
and workshops with Bloodhound
We will also be holding the Grand Opening of our Science hub; a dedicated outdoor classroom space for science activities.
Well done to everyone who dressed up for our 'World Book Day' on Monday 5th March. There were lots of excellent costumes and we raised lots of money for new books for school.
A special well done to the children who won prizes for their costumes!
World Book day was a good opportunity to remind ourselves of how important books and reading are.
Please remember to read with your children every day at home and sign their diaries. For each time they read, your child will get a mark on their reading card and when each card is completed they will receive a prize in assembly. The children can move up the card levels the more they read; from Bronze to Silver to Gold and, finally, Platinum - with the prizes increasing in value each time!
In February we raised lots of money for some very worthwhile charities.
On Friday 2nd February we had a great time participating in 'Number Day', raising money for the NSPCC. We did lots of number work in class, as well as completing number trails around the school. There were lots of prizes to be won and we raised lots of money for a worthwhile cause!
Here are some pictures of us 'Number Hunting'!
On 9th February we participated in Sign2Sing. We had great fun learning and performing the song 'Friends Forever' to raise money and awareness for Sign Health. Sign health raises essential funds to help vulnerable deaf children and adults.

Here we are performing the song!
Shine Bright, Wear Bright!
On the 9th February we also supported CHUMS (Mental health and emotional well being service for children and young people) by wearing brightly coloured clothes.
Visit their website to read more about the importance of well being and mental health awareness.
Safer Internet Day
Tuesday 6th February was Safer Internet Day.
The slogan for this year's Safer Internet Day was “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you”. We are committed to ensuring that we promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. This is becoming increasingly important in the modern world.
All of the children are educated on the importance of Internet safety on a regular basis in Computing and PSHE lessons.
Here are some website to help familiarise yourself with Internet Safety.
