Longtown Community Primary School

Longtown Community Primary School



Longtown Pre-school is a happy and thriving Pre-school situated in beautiful countryside and overlooked by Longtown Castle and the Black Mountains. We are located in the village of Longtown on our own site within the grounds of Longtown Primary School.  As a staff team we recognise that children's early years are incredibly precious and we passionately believe that children thrive and develop when supported within a nurturing and stimulating environment.  


Pre-school is open on a Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 9am until 3pm. From 8.15am till 9am children can attend our Breakfast Club, along with children from Longtown Community Primary School and from 3pm to 4pm on a Tuesday and Thursday we have a 'Lets Play' club for Pre-school and children in Class 1.


Stay and Play Toddler Group

Our popular Baby and Toddler group is held every week (during term time) in the Pre-school Portacabin from 9.30am to 11.30am.  The group welcomes any children age 0 - 5 and their parents or carers.


Our Mission Statement

At Longtown Pre-school we aim to provide a safe, fun and stimulating environment where all children feel appreciated and valued for who they are. Through a rich play environment the children explore and learn about the world around them.

By encouraging and nurturing their natural curiosity children discover that acquiring skills and knowledge is fun, equipping them for a lifelong love for learning. Through guidance from staff, children learn to care for each other, listen to and value each other's ideas. 

The Pre-school is registered from 9am to 3pm for children aged between 2-5 years and is open on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during school term time.   Our baby and toddler group for children aged 0 - 5 is held on Wednesdays.

We are a registered charity run by a committee of volunteer parents with paid qualified staff. We are members of the Pre School Learning Alliance and are registered with OFSTED. At our last inspection we were graded ‘Good’.

We work closely with Longtown Primary School and other local schools to ensure smooth transitions for children entering school.
