The views of our children are valued and listened to; pupils are actively involved in decisions about their learning and well-being. In our caring and stimulating atmosphere, students are inspired to reach their full potential - intellectually, physically, spiritually and ethically.

History of the School

The school was the first Board School built in Northfleet. Lawn School opened on 18th October 1886 and was extended in 1893 which also included a clocktower. The clocktower was badly damaged in the storms of 1987 and had to be demolished. The school still has one of the original three bells which also reflect our school logo.


School Organisation

The school has a nursery which offers half day places and a limited amount of 30 hour places for children aged 3 and over. The main school has one form entry with 30 children in each year group and is arranged into 3 phases, each led by an outstanding teacher.

Message from the Headteacher



Dear Parents and Carers


Welcome to Lawn Primary School

I am very proud, as Headteacher of Lawn Primary, to introduce you to this remarkable school.  We look forward to sharing this period of your child’s life with you. We feel education is a partnership between home and school and we place a great deal of emphasis on our partnership with you. We believe that if home and school work together the outcome will be successful.

The opportunity to educate children is a privilege and one that I take very seriously.

My philosophy is simple: to ensure all the children and staff in my care have high aspirations for themselves (and each other) and everyone is offered the very best learning environment to achieve success. Inclusion is fundamental to this holistic approach and I ensure that each and every member of my school community is enabled to maximise their potential.

I firmly believe children get the best start in life at Lawn Primary. The school is a unique place - regularly described as warm, friendly and welcoming - and I take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to Lawn.
