About Us

Head of School’s Welcome

I would like to warmly welcome you to our school family. I feel truly privileged to lead such an amazing and inspirational school.

We are a school dedicated to learning and enjoyment. Our teachers enjoy delivering fun and challenging lessons. We celebrate the achievements of all our children. We have high expectations and strive to be the best we can be. All of our staff are committed to the care and nurture of all our community.

We like to do things a little differently and love being outdoors enjoying the beautiful surroundings we have developed together.

Our website is only a glimpse of what we feel makes Lime Tree Primary Academy distinctive. The best way for you to appreciate what we can offer your child is to experience our school first hand.

I do hope you will visit us to meet our children and staff and to experience life at our unique school.

National Support School

Lime Tree is a National Support School and Simon Beswick, the Dunham Trust’s Executive Principal, is a National Leader of Education. National Leaders of Education (NLEs) are outstanding headteachers or principals who, together with the staff in their schools, known as designated National Support Schools (NSS), use their skills and experience to support schools in challenging circumstances.

Lime Tree has a very successful record of working with other schools, headteachers, groups of teachers and individual teachers in improving teaching and learning and pupil attainment and achievement. In addition to leading their own schools, NLEs work to increase the leadership capacity of other schools to help raise standards.

Schools seeking advice or support, guidance or help of any kind can contact Simon for an informal discussion via theĀ school office.
