Can I have a look around the school?
We can arrange for you to have a tour of the school during term time with a member of our Senior Leadership Team. If you are interested in having a look around, please contact our school reception. Due to Covid-19, we currently aren't running any tours. 
Who do I speak to now that my child doesn’t have just one class teacher?
Our reception will be open to pass on information and messages. Each child will have a form tutor as well as a Head of Year. All of these people can be contacted via email and we would encourage as much interaction as possible.
What happens if something gets lost?
Please make sure all clothing and equipment is clearly marked with your child’s name so that it can be returned if found.
Can my child bring a mobile device to school?
The school recognises the benefits of mobile devices and will endeavour to allow students to bring the devices to school.  However, the responsibility lies on students to follow the guidelines and parents to support them in order to get the best for each and every child in school. The school cannot take responsibility for any loss or damage. Phones must be switched off or set on silent during lessons and must kept out of sight.
Can I apply for free school meals?
If you think that your child is entitled to free school meals, please speak to a member of staff in the office who will help you with your application.
What should I do if my child is going to be absent from school?
Please ring the school absence line on 01253 667411 or message through the MyED app to let us know why your child is going to be absent.
What happens if my child has an accident at school?
Unfortunately, sometimes children do have accidents or become unwell whilst they are at school, in the event of this happening we would need to call you. Please ensure that we have up to date contact details for you.
What pastoral support is in place? 

Pupils are placed in mixed ability form classes and the form tutors will stay with their forms for their time at LSA. Input is given from year 6 teachers to try and help maintain friendship groups. Tutors see their forms every day for 30 minutes to help build strong relationships.

We have 5 experiences Heads of Year who work with a team of Assistant Heads to provide both pastoral and academic support for our students.

What SEN support is in place? 
Our Special Needs co-ordinator is Mrs Hallam. We have a large team of specialist staff who work together to support the needs of our students both educationally and emotionally.
How do you keep in touch with parents/carers/families? 
We message parents through the MyEd app.  This can be as a text or an email. Homework is set on Satchel One and can be accessed by parents. Achievements points and behaviour points are awarded using Class Charts, this too can be access via an app.
Are subjects set? 
When subjects are set, the Key stage 2 assessments are used for the basis of this. Adjustments are made during the year as needed. English and Humanities are set based on KS 2 Reading and Writing scores. Maths and Science are set based on KS 2 Mathematics scores.
What extra-curricular activities are available? 
There is a vast array of activities available at LSA covering different areas of the curriculum and different interests pupils have. We are keen to promote a love of learning and we are developing a culture of More Than Grades with our students
Can pupils stay on site after school?
The library is the hub of the school, before school and after school. Pupils can use the library resources to work online or complete homework. Please check the library page for opening and closing times.
