We hope that you find it easy to navigate and that you find the information and children's work useful.
|At Lathom we believe that all our children deserve the best education we can give them. We work hard to create a successful learning culture, which will enable pupils to become informed, confident, enthusiastic, inspired and independent learners for life.
We have developed an ethos where we continually try to spark children's interest and their quality of learning is central to the school's work and purpose. All children are encouraged to achieve their full potential and celebrate their achievement.
John Halliwell, Head of School

It is a very large, three-storey building typical of the Victorian era with unique architectural features. Our school has seventeen classrooms and various offices and resource areas. The school has four classes in each of the four Year groups. Children are grouped together according to age.
Year 3 classes: 7-8 years
Year 4 classes: 8-9 years
Year 5 classes: 9 -10 years
Year 6 classes: 10 – 11 years
School starts at 8:45 am and finishes at 3:15 pm.

Children can have a school dinner, go home for lunch or bring a packed lunch (in a lunch box clearly marked with their name and class number).
Children are encouraged to bring fruit and water bottles to school. Sweets, chewing gum, unhealthy snacks (crisps and chocolates) and fizzy drinks are not permitted.
The school follows Newham Councils Admission Policy. Admissions to all schools throughout the borough are organised centrally from the Pupils Admissions Section, Education Department.
