We are delighted to share with you our Ofsted report from our recent inspection in February 2019. We are incredibly proud that our report reflects the warm, thriving and aspirational school that is Lum Head.


We are hugely proud of our children, and that the report describes them as polite, courteous, well-mannered, kind and caring. Equally, we are so proud of our staff team, who have worked tirelessly and enthusiastically to transform Lum Head into a nurturing, caring, inclusive and fun school with the highest expectations for all.
