Livingstone Lower School Bedford

Livingstone Primary School

We are situated on the northern edge of the old heart of Bedford. Our building dates from 1893 and has great character. The spacious school hall is the hub around which school activities revolve. There are currently nine classes for children from four to ten years of age (eleven classes from September 2015, from ages four to eleven). We also run a pre-school for 3 and 4 year olds making 320 children in the school altogether. Our extensive and attractive grounds around the school are an added bonus.

Livingstone Lower School

An exciting building project, started in June 2011 has provided a further 10 classrooms in a new building sympathetic to the strong Victorian character of the school. This is now accommodating our increase in numbers to a two form entry which begun in September 2012. We will have up to 60 children in our Reception classes, Year 1, Year 2 and continuing into Year 3 in September 2015. Our current Year 5 class will move into Year 6 in September 2015, before leaving for Upper School in Year 7. By September 2018 the school will be 2 form entry in all year groups, with a capacity of 420 pupils.

We are proud of our multi-cultural identity and each ethnic group is celebrated and valued. We have around 25 different languages spoken with English and Bengali being the most common. We have swift and supportive induction procedures for families who are new to the school and for whom English may not be their first language. We help children to settle quickly to learning and all staff understand the difficulties that children may experience coming to a new and sometimes unfamiliar setting.
