Welcome from the Headteacher

A very warm welcome to Lime Wood Primary School.

I am delighted that we have now opened our doors of Lime Wood Primary School as part of the Woodland Academy Trust. 

Lime Wood Primary School opened in September 2023 and caters initially for a Reception cohort. As the community grows around us, the school will continue to grow year by year, eventually into a three- form entry school.

We are fortunate to be part of the Erith Hills Quarry community and are committed to working in partnership with parents, carers, residents and local businesses. We value our partnerships and by working with and listening to our community, we aim deliver an education to our children that will create life-long learners. 

I am delighted and privileged to be the Headteacher at Lime Wood Primary School.  One of my personal values stems from a TED Talk I watched some time ago. The talk was given by an American educator called Rita Pierson. Her main message throughout was that 'Every child needs a Champion'. Ever since then, this has been my personal mantra in all of the schools I have worked in across the Woodland Academy Trust. This also links directly with our Trust's ethos of 'Ignite the spark, reveal the champion'.   This inspired our own school vision - 

To deliver a curriculum that is provided by good teachers underpinned by an effective blueprint for excellence in culture, behaviour, attainment and wellbeing - to find the champion in everyone. 

I have enjoyed welcoming the first cohort of Reception children to our new school - they are the founders alongside a new team of staff as well as our local community - that will help to grow the school in years to come. I look forward to getting to know all of the children, parents and carers that will join us on this journey.
