Parent Handbook

Dear Parents, Carers and Guardians,

Welcome to Lytchett Matravers Primary School (LMPS).  Starting a new school is always exciting, but can be a little worrying – for parents and children.  We hope that our parent handbook will assist your family in the process of settling in with us.

LMPS is a school that works in close partnership with parents to ensure that we cater for the needs of every child, ensuring that they are all able to thrive in a supportive environment.  If your child is about to join Reception (Early Years Foundation Stage), you might like to take a look at our special ‘Starting School’ booklet (obtainable from the school office).  This gives you information about arrangements for beginning school and also contains ideas and suggestions that may assist you with preparing your child for school. Parents with children of any age are welcome to visit if they wish to consider sending a child to our school.  Arrangements can be made by contacting the school office and requesting an appointment.

At Lytchett Matravers Primary School (LMPS), we strive to make learning a happy and positive experience for every one of our pupils.  We are a school where there are expectations of excellence, where individuals are valued, achievements are celebrated and where children are happy, confident and secure in not only their learning, but in themselves.

We work hard to be a school held in the highest esteem by pupils, staff, parents, governors and the wider community, with tremendously energetic and creative staff that are committed to providing an amazing primary education for all of our children.

We are very proud of our school and the achievements of the pupils in every area of endeavour, whether that is sport or music, environmental work or academic achievement.

Lytchett Matravers Primary School is a place where your child will be able to thrive and enjoy a truly varied and outstanding curriculum, full of possibilities.

This booklet, whilst containing a great deal of information, cannot answer every question for each parent.  Please contact us, at any time, if you have queries.  We look forward to working with you throughout some of the most important years of your child’s education.

Yours sincerely,

Laura Dominey

Head of School
