SCHOOL CLOSURE - From Monday 23rd March school will be closed to children except those of key workers.  Parents who are key workers were notified by telephone on Friday 20th March if they are able to send their child to school on Monday 23rd March.

DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL IF YOU HAVE NOT HAD A PHONE CALL TO CONFIRM THEIR PLACE. Instead please ring the school office to inquire about your eligibility for a place.

Children who are not at school should be following the government's advice to practice social distancing - this means children should not be meeting to play at homes or in the park, attending play gyms, visiting relatives or going shopping.  Stay home, stay safe.  We urge you to follow this advice.

In this challenging time parents may also need some support.  Please click here to read our parent support page.

Home learning tasks will be uploaded and updated on our site each MONDAY and also sent via our communication APP SCHOOP.  To view the home learning pages click here.

Discovery Weeks

Our Discovery Weeks take place every term and provide an opportunity for the whole school to explore a particular theme. In the autumn  term we had a BIG ART focus for Discovery week. Each class studied an artist  and looked at their unique style which was then reproduced in the stunning work which can be seen around school.

Welcome to Lower Wortley Primary School Website 

Our values and ethos

  At Lower Wortley Primary School we aim to provide a safe and stimulating environment where each child can fulfil their learning potential through a broad and engaging curriculum designed around the core principles of citizenship, ambition and resilience.  We encourage all children to work hard and strive for success in everything they do.  It is equally important to us that the children are happy at school and enjoy being part of school life.

School Context

Lower Wortley Primary School is a popular, one and a half form entry school.  We moved into a new building in 2005 but the original school was established in 1872.  Our school is situated in the West of Leeds and serves many families in the Wortley area.

Whether you are a parent or carer of a child who already attends our school or you are considering our school for your child in the future, we hope that you will find all the information that you need on our website.



Please note that until further notice all events are postponed.

Art in the Community

In the summer of 2010 we were given the opportunity to be involved in an exciting art project as part of the regeneration of the 'Bull Ring' in Lower Wortley. Pupils from school worked alongside artist Steve Tomlinson to develop a series of three panels which depict architectural features of Lower Wortley Primary School buildings from the past and present. The panels feature the old main school building, the annexe and the new school which was built in 2005. We are very proud of our involvement in the project and have drawn inspiration for our new school website from the images which are on display in the community. The original work is also displayed in school.
