Welcome to Lord Street Primary School

Dear Parents, Guardians and Visitors,

Welcome to the Lord Street Primary School website, we hope it is useful to  you. Please let us know if there is anything we have missed that you think would be helpful!

If there is anything else that you need to know then you are most welcome to phone us (01282 865597) or to call in at school. Guests are always most welcome, whether you are an ex pupil who wishes to rekindle old school day memory or you have a child who you would like to enrol at the school. Our staff and children will always give you a warm welcome.

Building Work Update- Dry Rot Outbreak

February 2018 

KS1 Building

We have had to close Mrs Doyle's classroom as a result of the survey which took place in the KS1 building over the half term. Hopefully we will be able to resolve this quickly but in the short term her class will be taught in the KS2 building.

We are working with Lancashire County Council's building team to make sure that we have a plan to remedy the problems we have picked up.

KS2 Building

We have been told that the bad weather over winter has meant our handover will now be after the May half term! We are still going to be on two sites with no field and limited hot meals in Y3-5 until then. On a positive we can now have limited access to the hall so PE is easier and we have far less scaffolding around the school than last term!

In the summer term we hope to get the KS2 building back! There will need to be some work to do in the playground to make it a safe place and to remove the portacabins. This might need to take place in the summer holidays. We will still need the village until all the work is finished.


The office still has 'acro' props holding up the roof so bear with our staff! The  partition wall in the hall will be slowly reduced as classrooms are finished.

Three extra jobs still need to be done and have overrun into this half term. These are:

  • The office flat roof has to be replaced 
  • A collapsed drain under the link corridor has to be excavated and fixed at the same time

It will be nice to bring the school back together and we hope that you will join us for the open days and school cohesion events we plan to carry out to help to bring everyone together in the second half of summer term!


October 2017

We have an up date on building work for you. As you know the office has had to be temporarily closed but is due to reopen this week, with the addition of eight acroprops to support the roof above! It is all safe but its putting pressure on us for space. The building work is shifting its focus to the roof above our meeting room and my office and they will be closed. This means we are going to be very short of space for any meetings with parents. 

On a positive note the kitchen is due to be working again after half term and we will have three of our classrooms back. We are risk assessing one to use for PE on rainy days and two others to use as dining areas.

Even though we keep losing school rooms, there is light at the end of the tunnel!

September 2017

Thank you for bearing with us last term. It was challenging for  everyone. We are starting our second term in the 'Village', as we are calling the porta-cabins on the field. We expect to be using them until Easter 2018 when the main KS2 building should be handed back. We have been told that handover should be 23rd March. It is a provisional date but we are looking forward to it!

Over the summer we lost the use of the staff room and it's still out of action. Hopefully we will have it back in the second week and even more usefully we might have the kitchen working again by the end of September, so there is a chance of hot meals again! 

The hall will remain out of action until March which means we have no inside space for PE. You will need outdoor PE kit every week as we will be using the playground and nearby sports hall. Assemblies for the whole school will be at Sacred Heart's Church hall on Friday afternoons but we will need to be sensible when we have bad weather. The walk to the church and back will mean children being soaked on wet days so you will have to check our text service to make sure we don't cancel.

The disruption to school will continue but we are very grateful to all those who have helped us, especially Colne Primet Academy who housed us for three weeks, Father Chris at Sacred Heart for the use of the Church Hall for a weekly assembly and Colne Park High for kitchen space to make sandwiches!


Yours faithfully

Latest News

Spring Term

Parents' Evening 

Because of last weeks snow we postponed the two parents evenings. These will be held this week. Please come along at the times you were booked in for last week.

Mr Vallely is not in school on Wednesday and so we will need to rearrange his Wednesday appointments for Thursday.

Mrs Wainman is unable to attend this week and so we will let you know the rearranged dates as soon as possible. 


Thank you to everyone who sent their questionnaires in. Our Governors are analysing them and we will share the outcomes with you when they are ready. One initial finding was about communication. I am sorry that we are still not getting it right for you. We will be sending out a letter soon (weather dependant) with key actions we will take. 


Reading Challenge

With book week well under way it is worth telling you that we are taking part in the Pendle Reading Challenge. 

The aim of the challenge is to work with 18 other Pendle Schools to push a love of reading in all our children and importantly our community.

Mrs Wainman and our school Reading Ambassadors are leading on this so keep your eyes out for updates on the work they are doing in and around school. They have plans to, in the words of one of our year three children, 'make reading ooze out of our school'!


 Multi Academy Trust

The written consultation has closed now. Many thanks to those parents who joined us for  the consultation meetings. Some useful points were raised. The governing body will use the consultation response to inform their decision about whether the school will make the change to academy later this term. They will let you know as soon as they have decided. 

Clubs and Events

All this terms clubs were included in the newsletter and are listed on the calendar on the website. If  you spot any obvious errors please let us know!

Maternity Leaves

We are delighted to announce that three of our staff are going to be taking maternity leave this year.  Mrs Jackson leaves in March, Mrs Clarke in April and Mrs Clamp in the summer term.

We will advertise the posts as quickly as we can and let you know who will be covering these positions.

Planned Leave

Miss Manser will be off school for the next half a term as she has a planned operation. Her absence will be covered by Miss Scholes who already volunteers with us in school.

Uniform Policy

We have updated the School Uniform Policy. We have not changed overall uniform but it is important that you read the policy to make sure you are clear on expectations especially about hair styles.

SAT results

Updated SAT results are available in the Pupil Attainment Section of the site. The results are a big improvement on last year and the school continues to improve both attainment and progress.
