About Lyndhurst Primary and Nursery School

Welcome from Lizzie Egan-Walsh Headteacher, Lyndhurst Primary and Nursery School

Our popular School is situated in the Hollins area of Oldham, Greater Manchester, serving a large residential area of private and local authority housing.  The school's planned admission number is 472 and the school’s admission limit in Reception to Year 6 is 60 per year group. With the exception of Nursery where we have a PAN of 52. This includes part time and full time attendees.  The number of children on roll currently stands at 464.   Approximately 25% of our children are entitled to free school meals, 11.28% have Special Educational Needs and 33% come from homes where English is not their first language.

Our school is popular with local families and has a reputation for being friendly and welcoming. There are good links with the local community through various activities and we enjoy positive relationships with neighbouring schools and the local authority. 

Key messages from our most recent Ofsted report in 2019:

  • This is a calm and caring school where pupils get on well together. Leaders’ vision of a school where pupils ‘learn, care, challenge and lead’ is central to Lyndhurst Primary School. Leaders and teachers have high expectations of pupils. They make sure that all pupils are able to take part in school life. For example, pupils learn sign language so they can communicate with their peers.
  • Pupils enjoy taking part in wide range of extra-curricular activities across the school. These include the well-attended breakfast reading club, robotics competitions and trips which enhance the curriculum.
  • Pupils enjoy school. They feel happy, safe and well looked after. Pupils’ behaviour is typically good. The pupils that we spoke to told us that poor behaviour and bullying does happen occasionally but that is rare. When it does happen, pupils said that adults sort it out quickly and fairly.
  • School leaders are passionate about making sure that all pupils are learning well. Pupils told us that they enjoy the many opportunities that they have to learn new things.

I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher at Lyndhurst Primary and Nursery School and believe it is a rich and vibrant place to learn and work; where we embrace our vision: shaping the future, making memories, ready for life. I would be very happy to answer any questions that you may have.
