Our children are at the very centre of all we do at Frances Olive Anderson Church of England School. We have a strong, dedicated team of staff who work tirelessly to provide an exciting and enriched curriculum from which all our pupils learn. Each individual learner is carefully planned for and teaching and learning methods deployed to ensure ALL pupils make progress from their starting points academically and emotionally. Our mission statement underpins our approach at all times: ‘Being Different, Belonging Together,’
We celebrate and share our differences and similarities. In doing so, we realise the valuable contribution which all members of the community can make to Frances Olive Anderson Church of England Primary School. We continually review our practice to take into account the different needs and contributions of pupils, staff, parents and Governors. All of our pupils are guided, cared for and supported in a close partnership with parents and the community; promoting the culture of belonging and working together.
Frances Olive Anderson Church of England Primary School is located in the rural village of Lea which is situated in between Gainsborough and Lincoln. The school is growing in popularity. Currently we have 190 pupils on role. An extension was finished in the summer of 2015 to accommodate our growing numbers.
The catchment area includes Lea, Knaith, Knaith Park, Gate Burton, Upton and Kexby, although many children from Gainsborough and the surrounding area choose our school. A free school bus transports children from Upton and Kexby and there is a limited concessionary service from Knaith Park.
Our strong Christian ethos and values provide a good foundation that children can take with them through to adulthood. We believe that it is our duty to equip all of our pupils with the necessary skills and knowledge in order to reach their potential in an ever changing world. Our children have one chance at education. We constantly encourage our children to have high expectations of what they can achieve and provide the support to develop positive attitudes to learning. At all times we consider the support our children and families require for their emotional well-being. We are proud of our pastoral care and the positive impact this has on our learners. Happy learners are lifelong and successful learners.
BEING DIFFERENT, BELONGING TOGETHER
Our vision is to fully equip our children with values, skills and knowledge that provide the building blocks for their future.
With the recent change in leadership, the whole school community are currently working together to articulate and embed our values
which will be in line with our High 5 Rules.
|Keep our hands and feet to ourselves.|
|Respect one another and our belongings.|
|Stay safe and happy.|
|Always try our best.|

Frances Olive Anderson Church of England Primary School caters for children and families of all religion and no religion. We are a voluntary aided Church of England School. Support and guidance is provided by the Lincoln Diocese. We have an inspection every 3 years to judge how successful we are as a Church School. In our latest inspection, May 2015, we were judged to be an outstanding Church School.
Some of the aspects which make us distinctive as a Church School include:
The recent SIAMS report recognised:
We value our close links with the local community and the church. We have positions on our Governing Body which are elected by the parochial parish councils. These are known as our Foundation Governors. The parishes represented are:
Reverend Phillip Wain is the incumbent of the four Churches and he is the Vice Chair of the Governing Body and is a regular visitor in school.
Please follow the links to find out more about Church Schools and our latest SIAMS report.
Frances Olive Anderson Church of England Primary School is part of a collaboration of village schools in the local area. We work very closely with 4 other schools of varying sizes and catchments:
The relationships between the schools has proved to be invaluable in providing support and training for all of our staff to enable the sharing of the best practice possible. We have embarked on a cycle of peer review, we scrutinise data across the schools and where possible, identify joint areas for development. We are also part of the wider Gainsborough Partnership of Schools which includes secondary and special schools. There is a vast wealth of knowledge, expertise and leadership within the partnership which serves to support all.
