Our children and community 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 strive 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 vision 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.
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 bus provided by LCC 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 schoo, community to have high expectations of what they can achieve and provide the support to one another to develop positive attitudes to learning. At all times we consider the support our children, families and staff require for their emotional well-being. We are proud of our pastoral care and the positive impact this has on our community. Happy learners are lifelong and successful learners.
Everything we do in our school community is based on the following five values.
"Do unto others as you would have them do for you."
"Love is patient, love is kind."
1 Corinthians 13:4
"But take courage; I have conquered the world."
"I have set you an example, that you should do as I have done for you."
Commitment to Achieve:
"Strive for the greater gifts and I will show you a more excellent way."
1 Corinthians 12:31

Lea Frances Olive Anderson Church of England Primary School is a one form entry that caters for children and families of all religion and no religion. We are a voluntary aided Church of England School. The proportion of pupils who are considered to be disadvantaged is in line with national averages. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is in line with national averages. The leadership structure of the school has changed significantly since the last SIAMS inspection. Our latest inspection in 2020 rated us a Good school.
The school's Christian vision is:
Being Different, Belonging Together
'All of us are Christ's body, and each one a part of it.'
A place where all are welcomed, accepted and valued as unique pupils of God. As a school community we aim for all to develop wisdom, resilience, hope for the future, a sense of self-worth, to flourish - so to aspire to be the very best we can be, and to enable us to serve others.
The SIAMS report key findings:
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 a member of the Governing Body and is a regular visitor in school.

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.
