The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

Headteacher's Welcome

Lynsted and Norton Primary School is a small, rural school founded in 1878. We are proud to be part of The Village Academy, a federation of schools under the leadership and guidance of Chief Executive Officer; Mrs Hayley Spedding

 As the Headteacher I am in charge of the day-to-day running of Lynsted and Norton School.  Although new in post from January 2018, I am passionate about the school and the positive developments I can make to an already thriving village school. 

The accommodation consists of a school hall which is used for assemblies, drama, educational activities and sport, and as a dining hall at lunch times. There are three classrooms and a library/intervention room in our main building with a further classroom, learning rooms and offices in the School House.

We are particularly fortunate to be situated in the middle of the countryside surrounded by green fields and orchards.  Outside we have a large school field and a large traditional playground. Working together with the on-site Pre-School, Stepping Stones, we have also developed an exciting outside classroom for our Reception children.

We are a busy, but friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regularly updated information for both parents and pupils.

Our Vision and Values 

At Lynsted and Norton, we aim to build a school where confident children are able to reach their full potential through their engagement with a creative, balanced curriculum. They will be given opportunities to learn that are valuable and purposeful, and they will be given time for reflection to enhance their understanding.

Community is an important part of life at Lynsted and Norton. Our children will learn our school values which will have a positive effect on their attitude to learning and to life. Through positive engagement with home, each child will be supported in their learning, but together we can also ensure that well-being is a priority.

Our six values are:







We aim to teach every child what each value means and celebrate when they show that value in their school day. Through teaching these values, we are building the ethos of Lynsted and Norton School.

Our Code of Conduct

As part of our Values, we have created a simple code of conduct which every person in the school uses to monitor how they behave in school:
