Virtual Open Evening!

Dear Parents/Carers,

My name is Lucy Harper and I lead Early Years at Luddendenfoot Academy. This year we have not been able to hold our usual open evening, but we recognise that you will be keen to find out more about our school. We have decided to host a Zoom meeting on Tuesday the 15th of December at 7pm to talk you through the presentation that we would normally show at our open evening. The presentation will last for approximately 30 minutes and you will be able to email me with any questions afterwards. My email address is Please get in touch if you would like an invite.

If you are unable to join us on Tuesday but would like to see the presentation then I will see if I can organise another day. Please contact either myself or Ms Roberts at
if this is the case.

Y6 Head Boy and Head Girl

This year, pupils from Year Six delivered their speeches for the role of Head Boy and Head Girl. Their speeches were recorded and videos shared with the rest of the school, who then cast their votes. This was by far one of the most difficult decisions, as all involved delivered outstanding speeches.

We are are pleased to announce that James Kay and Hebe Harper were the successful candidates and will begin their duties next week. We wish them lots of future success in their roles.

We could not elect their deputies at this stage as we had a tie – equal votes – for two of the girls. We will however, look at electing deputies following another vote at a later stage.


Today our Year 6 pupils said their final farewell to Luddendenfoot Academy, before they move on to their respective high schools.

You have been an amazing year group and superb role models to the younger pupils within the school.  You have worked hard and have tried your best. I would like to wish you all the best for the future, as you leave us and move to the next chapter of your education.

Unfortunately, we have not been able to say goodbye in the usual way. We have instead enjoyed a day of games, activities, reminiscing and our final assembly, where pupils were presented with certificates and keepsakes.

Good luck for the future and don’t forget to come back and see us all! You will all be greatly missed!

Sports Day 2020

On Wednesday we celebrated the end of this year with a wonderful afternoon of sports and activities. The children all took part and cheered for their teams. Even though the weather wasn’t the hottest we didn’t let that stop us! Well done everyone!

Pond life

The children have been busy helping to clear the pond and refill it after the warm weather we have had. Today we were delighted to see that our work had helped as we watched the wildlife thriving in our pond. We thought it was absolutely wonderful and we hope you agree!

Two of our frogs relaxing in the cool provided by the shrubs and mint surrounding the edge of the pond.
This creature baffled us at first – it’s a fairy shrimp! They eat pond scum and live in oinds without fish because they are eaten by them. They’re also the perfect snack for our resident frogs and diving beetles!

Luddfoot likes to move it, move it!

This coming week, your teachers have set you a challenge to complete the ‘Luddfoot likes to move it, move it!’ challenge. Read the instructions carefully and let’s get moving at home! Will you achieve an award?
