Update from Mr Wilding - Thursday 25th May 2023

Mr Wilding has sent an update to parents and carers regarding exams, revision sessions, water safety, e-safety and access to the school site.

To all parents and carers.

Good afternoon, from LCS.

We are well into the busy exam period in school, with students in Year 11 and Year 13 continuing with exams, right through to the end of June. Students have shown exemplary attitude to exams and revision lessons so far and we hope they ultimately gain the results their efforts deserve. Students in Key Stage 3 have also been experiencing exams, some for the first time, in recent weeks and have shown an equally impressive attitude and approach.

A reminder to parents/carers of students in Year 11 that a full programme of revision session was sent out recently by Mr Buchanan and we would like, where possible, parents/carers to encourage their children to attend these important sessions.

Half-term ends tomorrow, 26th May and students should return to school on Monday 5th June.

I have a few important updates and messages in my email to you today.

A message from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service

This week, Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service launched a hard-hitting water safety video called 'Thando's Story', told in the words of Mr and Mrs Ndlovu who lost their much-loved son Thando in July 2021.

Thando's Story aims to encourage parents, carers and guardians to speak to young children about the dangers of open water, and directly warn young people in the hope that Thando's death will leave a legacy that will prevent future water deaths. 

This is such an important message and one that ahead of the end of term holiday and warmer weather, is particularly important.   Parents/carers can also follow @derbyshireFRS  social media posts, to help spread the message far and wide. 

You can link to Thando's Story here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Jz5t3BA6rQ 

Social Media Influencers

A campaign for National On-line Safety has released a poster for parents and carers regarding Social Media Influencers. On-line safety and use of social media, in particular, continues to be an issue for many of our young people. I hope you find the Social Media Influencers information useful.

Please also refer to information on our school website, at:

Access to school site

A polite reminder to all parents/carers, that students should not be dropped-off or picked up by parents/carers in vehicles at the Fresco Drive entrance gate to school. If students are using this gate to access school site, parents/carers must park on Fresco Drive itself and allow students to walk into school via the access road, rather than driving down the access road to the gate itself.

Thank you for your support.

Keep safe.

J. Wilding

About LCS

Mr Wilding - LCS Acting Headteacher

Welcome to Littleover Community School.

I am lucky enough to have worked at the school since September 2000 and, in January 2020, was asked by Governors to take on the role of Acting Headteacher.  Having now been confirmed as permanent Headteacher in March 2021, I will continue to do everything I can to make LCS the best school it can possibly be, whilst maintaining the safety and wellbeing of all our young people.

We are a large comprehensive secondary school, located to the south west of the City of Derby, close to the main transport routes of the A38 and A50. We pride ourselves on the excellent teaching we provide for all our students, as well as the care and support all students receive to help them achieve their best.

We are committed to a broad and balanced curriculum and our students have achieved outstanding results at both GCSE and A Level for many years now. We also believe in providing all our students with wider opportunities for learning and developing through their work in the classroom, as well as access to extra-curricular opportunities in sport and performing arts.

I hope you find our website informative and easy to use.  We are always happy to receive ideas of how we can improve our service to parents, carers, students and our community. 

If you have any ideas or questions about anything on our website, or more widely about the school, please do not hesitate to contact us.  If you would like a paper copy of our school brochure or paper copies of any of the information contained on our website, these are also available, free of charge.

Littleover Community School.
Learning, Caring, Succeeding.
