Head Teacher’s Welcome

It is with great pleasure that I say hello to you on behalf of the Directors, Governors, Staff and Pupils of our Academy. I thoroughly enjoy working at Lark Hall Infant and Nursery Academy and sincerely hope that you and your child’s association with us proves to be equally happy.

At Lark Hall Infant and Nursery Academy every child is as important as the next. High self-esteem is encouraged, high expectations, standards and values are fostered and progress and achievement are positively monitored and celebrated. We believe that all children can achieve and that no child is left behind.

Lark Hall Infant and Nursery Academy has many qualities, the most important of these being a dedicated and caring team of staff who share a wealth of experience. In addition, we have excellent facilities to support specialised education for children aged between 3 and 7 years old. These factors help us to provide the highest standards of education for your child. In partnership with parents, we strive to ensure continued academic success and develop personal qualities in pupils of which we can be proud. As our aim states...

Everyone is valued and shares responsibility for the learning that takes place at Lark Hall Infant and Nursery Academy.

Our focus is on developing and nurturing our children. We seek to provide every opportunity to apply Literacy and Numeracy across their learning. We want all children to achieve the highest possible standards and make maximum progress.

As part of Mercia Primary Academy Trust the school shares a whole host of resources with Flax Hill Junior Academy, where most of our children go onto. As Head Teacher of both schools I know how hard we work to make the transition to Junior school as easy as possible, something we start to consider as early as their first year in Pre School!

Both schools are going from strength to strength. Both schools have received ‘Good’ Ofsted reports and have oversubscribed classes due to our popularity within Tamworth. With our Junior school having been awarded ‘Pupil Premium Primary School of the Year - West Midlands’ by the Department for Education I strongly believe that Lark Hall and then Flax Hill will give your child a great start to their educational journey. 


Yours sincerely

Richard Lane

Executive Headteacher
