Littleport Community

Primary School

Spread your wings and fly!


Thank you for visiting our website. I hope that it will enable you to find any information you are looking for, as well as giving you an insight into what a wonderful place Littleport Community Primary School is to learn and work.


Our aim is to provide an excellent education for all of our children, helping them develop the confidence, skills, curiosity and understanding to grow and progress academically, socially and emotionally.  Learning opportunities are created in class, in our wonderful school grounds, around the school, on visits and by guests who come in to work with the children. Please have a look at the photos in our 'Year Group' area of the 'Pupils' section to see what we have been getting up to...


We pride ourselves in developing the ‘whole child’, and our approach to learning means that children are supported, challenged, stretched and inspired in a wide range of exciting learning opportunities through our broad and balanced curriculum.


As you'd imagine, academic progress, learning and excellence are key for everyone, and so is the chance to shine in sport, music, the arts and all other areas of learning. We want all of our children not just to reach their potential but to exceed our expectations, be the best and 'spread their wings and fly'.


Ofsted visited us in September 2018 and agreed that we are a 'good and improving school'. Highlights from the report include:

  • 'Littleport Community Primary School is a vibrant and happy place to learn.'
  • 'Pupils told me they enjoy school and shared their aspirations to be, among other things, teachers, astronomers, mechanics and pianists.'
  • 'Teachers demonstrated confidence, secure subject knowledge and enthusiasm for teaching.'
  • 'On inspection, I saw pupils who are keen to learn, engaging positively in whole-class learning.'
  • 'You have created a strong sense of equality and an appreciation of diversity that permeates your school.'
  • 'Pupils who I spoke with told me they feel safe at school.'
  • 'Parents ... overwhelmingly agreed that their children are safe and happy at Littleport Community Primary School.'


Our success is based on our passion for teaching and learning. Our professional and supportive staff work closely with families, governors, volunteers, outside agencies and the wider local community to bring about the best possible provision for our pupils. Learning and enjoyment happen throughout the day; we offer a wide range of extra-curricular clubs in sport, the arts, music, dance, gardening, computing and Maths - all provided free of charge to all ages if operated by school staff.


Littleport Community Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff, parents and volunteers to actively share this commitment. Our Designated Persons for Child Protection are myself, Mr Clark (Deputy Head), Mr Parrin (Children's Inclusion Manager) and Amber Harradine-Hughes (SENDCo).


Our school is a special place to learn, with modern learning facilities, in a purpose-built building, which we share with Littleport Community Pre-School and the Child & Family Centre for the whole community.


We are in a truly unique position having established the East Cambs & Fenland Evidence Network, which supports colleagues across the region with evidence-informed pedagogy to improve the outcomes of pupils with a focus on disadvantage. This has enabled us to establish working partnerships with organisations such as the Education Endowment Foundation, the Research Schools Network, Cambridge University and Anglia Ruskin University.
