School Profile Langshott Primary School is a successful Local Authority Community school going through the journey from Infant to Primary school status. We currently have 289 pupils on roll (Foundation Stage and Years 1 to 4) between the ages of 4 and 11 years. We will be growing year-on-year until 2017 when we will have the full complement of Primary Yeargroups. We were oversubscribed with first choice applicants for September 2014. Langshott Primary School opened in 1985, it is located to the east of Horley town centre, approximately two miles from Gatwick Airport.
Pupils come from a range of home backgrounds. The very large majority of families are very supportive of the school and their child's learning. This is reflected in high levels of participation in school events, the support of home learning, good attendance and regular feedback.
The main building has four classrooms built around a central courtyard, which features gardens and planted containers. A sixth classroom is located in a prefabricated classroom and a further nine classroom block was added for September 2014 to expand the school from Infant to Primary. All classes have access to purpose built covered areas to support learning outside the classroom. In addition, we have a well stocked library, a multifunction hall and several group rooms for breakout work.We have a large open play area with beautiful grounds, play equipment and playing fields that include an environmental pond and woodland.
The Reception classes have their own safe and secure outside area for learning and play. Children, including the able child and those with special educational needs, are taught as a whole class, often in small groups, and also as individuals. Learning is carefully differentiated to provide all children with appropriate challenging situations according to their age and stage of development. Teaching assistants are attached to each class to support the children’s learning. Langshott is an extended school operating a popular Breakfast and After School club, catering for up to 32 pupils.
Langshott currently has 8 classroom teachers although the number is growing year on year as we expand. The Headteacher is currently supported by the Strategic Leadership Team including the Key Stage 2 leader, School Business Manager, the Foundation Stage leader and the Special Needs Coordinator.This team will grow as more layers are added to the staffing structure over the next couple of years. Langshott is a member of the highly regarded Horley Learning Partnership Confederation.
