A Message from our Executive Headteacher:


At Ladywood Primary School there is a place for everyone! We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school that will go above and beyond to ensure that every child can access a high-quality education and to support our community of families. 


Being a Headteacher is the best job in the world and I was privileged to be given the opportunity to lead our fantastic school, 15 years ago and I’ve certainly never looked back!


Ladywood School is truly a wonderful place, where all children are loved, cherished and nurtured. I am so very proud to be a part of this vibrant, happy and caring school where children are firmly at the heart of everything we do. We are part of the Embark Federation, a family of schools across Derbyshire who believe that by working together as a team, can create schools that ‘stand out’ at the heart of their communities.  

At Ladywood we aim to foster a love of learning and a love of life. Our children are given the opportunities to learn, achieve and thrive, working in partnership with parents, carers and members of our local communities.

Prospective learners and families are welcome to have a tour of school and we look forward to welcoming you! 

My door is always open and should you wish to speak to me, please contact our fantastic team. 



Thank you


Miss Melanie Lawson
