Welcome to the website for
Langar Church of England Primary School
We are a small school occupying an idyllic rural setting in the village of Langar, on the Nottinghamshire / Leicestershire border.
Established in 1842, our school serves the villages of Langar, Barnstone, Colston Bassett and Wiverton, traditional farming communities of the Vale of Belvoir. The school occupied a split site location until January 2009, when the clasp building at Barnstone Road was renovated and considerably extended.
The original Victorian school building, situated opposite the Anglican Church of St Andrews and a two-minute walk through the village, is now in private ownership.
The new impressive £2.4 million school includes a large community hall, four classrooms, a pre-school room, full cook kitchen, community room, administration offices and staff room. An extensive outdoor environment offers undercover learning facilities, a science and investigational area, quiet working environment and extensive sports facilities.
The school works in partnership with the Pre-School Learning Alliance to deliver education and childcare for children from 2 – 11 years of age. Childcare facilities are available between 7.30am and 6.pm for fifty-one weeks of the year.
We enjoy a close relationship with the church and community, are helped and supported by them and in turn, are able to make reciprocal gestures. We see ourselves as partners, with a considerable contribution to make in our community.
Parents are very supportive of their children and school, volunteering their services and working tirelessly through the PTA to provide social and fund raising events.
We are part of the Fosse Five cluster – a partnership of five small rural primary schools situated in the vicinity of the old Roman road, the Fosse Way. Our aim is to work in partnership to enrich and enhance the educational opportunities already provided by the individual schools.
We are also a member of the Rushcliffe Learning Alliance, a group of 24 primary schools, which provides services for its members (professional development, procurement, etc) formerly provided by the Local Authority.
We are particularly proud of the findings from the last Ofsted Inspection (September 2006) and SIAS (church) Inspection (March 2012), in which we were judged to be outstanding in all areas.
It was recognised by David Laws, MP, Minister of State for Schools that our Key Stage 2 results between 2009 and 2012 had shown consistent improvement in terms of progress in English and Mathematics, placing us in the top 100 best performing primary schools in the country.
We hope that you enjoy exploring our website. Please contact the office if you would like to visit the school.
