About Us

Welcome to our school website. I am very proud to be the Headteacher of Lifton Primary where we strive to: Aim High! Reach for the Stars!

Our School is a vibrant community where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve well and become confident and independent young people. Children at Lifton receive an excellent start in our Fledglings Foundation Unit and this continues throughout the school as all staff create a happy, supportive and purposeful environment.

We have an exciting curriculum that excites and stimulates children's imaginations and creative thinking. At Lifton School we are committed to outdoor learning and we have our own Forest school. Research has shown that outdoor learning improves mental and spiritual health, communication skills and social relationships; but most of all it is great fun and inspires our learning. We believe that connecting with nature helps children feel part of the world.

We welcome visits to our school. Please make an appointment to meet us and come and look around our lovely school. Thank you for visiting our website.

Best Wishes,
Melanie Cripps Headteacher
