Welcome To Lavender



Please be aware there is considerable traffic congestion around school due to the police closure of Baker Street, just after the roundabout at Lancaster Road due to an unsafe building. Please allow extra time for collection of your child/ren.,

8.2.17 to 31.3.17 Consultation Period for the formation of the Ivy Academy Trust

On 8.2.17, letters were sent out to parents/ carers and staff to inform that the governing bodies of Brimsdown and Lavender have agreed in principle to the formation of a multi academy trust, The Ivy Academy Trust.

For further information regarding the proposal, please go to the Ivy Academy Trust tab under the Community menu. Note: no creche is available on Tuesday 21st.


Thank you to all those who attended our third Fabulous Work exhibition showcasing the children's drafted and crafted masterpieces. We hope that you enjoyed the range of interesting and high quality work that they have been busy producing this term.

Lavender Song DVD - We hope you are delighted with your copy of the school song video. Remember, should you wish to make a donation towards the cost of it, just pop some money into an envelope and pass to the office. If you wish to add your child's name and class, that would be useful but contributions can be made anonymously.

POLICIES  Some of our policies are being updated and we will keep you informed of changes. See them by clicking on the Policies tab on the 'About us' page.

A reminder that our school dinners are now 20p more per day. We have managed to keep the prices low for a long time and this is an unavoidable increase.

We are cashless!

School dinners, After School Club, Breakfast Club, trips and school camps all have to be paid for on-line via Parent Pay because we are now completely cashless. If you have any questions, please contact the school office.


Take a look at the school news page on this website to keep up to date with everything else that is happening at Lavender.
