Welcome to Luddington and Garthorpe Primary school’s website.  I am extremely proud to be Head Teacher of such a warm, welcoming and friendly school. 

We are a very warm and welcoming small village school in North Lincolnshire. We have 75 pupils on roll at present, including Nursery. The friendly family atmosphere reflects the caring attitude of the pupils and the staff. We aim for everyone in school to be safe, happy and enjoy themselves. Our standards and expectations are high.We work in partnership with parents/carers and the wider community to ensure the success of our children. We believe that children deserve the best possible chances in life and that they learn best when there are strong links between home and school.

I hope you enjoy finding out more about our school by browsing our website.  Here you will find a wide range of information about our school, including the latest news and announcements, curriculum information, news from each class, school policies and procedures, our mission statement, a school calendar, links to other useful sites and resources and much more. The site is being updated all the time, so please bookmark it and visit again soon!  Visits are encouraged and welcomed: we would be delighted to show you around our wonderful school.

Mrs J Bassindale

The Luddington & Garthorpe App

It is designed to keep you well informed about your child's education and life in general at school, and to help cut down on paper and ink consumption.  We will post school news, events, curriculum information, contacts details and the like on the app and will also use it to send important messages.

So whether you are out and about with your phone or at home with access to a tablet you will always have a quick and convenient way to find key information or simply browse. Do let us know what other information and features we should add to the app.


How to download the app

You can get the app if you have an Apple or Android phone and/or tablet.   There are two ways:

Click on one of these links in an email or text on the device itself:

Luddington & Garthorpe Primary School app (Android)

Luddington & Garthorpe Primary School app (Apple)

Or visit the Apple app store or Google Play on your device and search for "Luddington & Garthorpe Primary School ".

You may download the app onto multiple devices but will need to install separately on each one.

Key Tips

1.  Start by visiting the Settings page (see below, reached via 'More' tile on Home page) and turn on the year groups you are interested in.  The app will then alert you to relevant messages in these categories.


Please leave the Urgent alerts category turned on.  This is for messages from the school to everyone about urgent matters.

2. The Alerts tile contains a record of the alert messages you have been sent by the school.  The circular counter on the app shows how many Unread messages you have.

3. It is a good idea to close the app when not in use.  This allows content to refresh and you will not miss anything urgent since alert messages will pop up on your phone even when the app is off. 

4. You can find a more detailed guide to navigating the app in the Information section of the app itself.
