2. About our school

Introduction

Lindal and Marton Primary School is a small school situated in the heart of the village of Lindal-in-Furness. The building dates from the middle of the nineteenth century and consists of three classrooms, an ICT suite, a hall and cloakrooms with disabled facilities. In 2009 a mezzanine floor was added to create  a teaching space/ICT suite and improved office facilities.  In 2015 another mezzanine floor was added above the Key Stage 2 class which enabled the school to move to four classes and reduce the number of pupils in each teaching group.

A significant feature of the school is the rich outside environment and outdoor classroom which support many aspects of the curriculum. The large garden area to the rear of the school is fully accessible by ramps. The school is surrounded by various play areas which provide opportunities for games. Approximately 100 metres along from the school is the school sports field which is used for games and sports by the children as well as serving as a village play area out of school hours.
