Lansbury Lawrence Primary School

Welcome to the Lansbury Lawrence Primary School website. We are a creative and successful, multi-cultural nursery and primary school in the heart of Poplar in the East London Borough of Tower Hamlets taking children from ages 3-11. 


School Reopening – 8th March

All children return to school on the 8th March. We are continuing with the same staggered start and end to the day as we had during the Autumn Term:

  • Nursery morning session is from 8:55 until 11:30 
  • Nursery afternoon session is from 12:30pm until 3:05pm 
  • Reception should arrive at 8:45 and be collected at 3:00pm 
  • Year 1 and Year 4 should arrive at 8:45am and be collected at 3:00pm 
  • Year 2 and Year 5 should arrive at 8:50 am and be collected at 3:05pm 
  • Year 3 and Year 6 should arrive at 8:55 am and be collected at 3:10pm 

Where a family has children in more than one year group, the children should all arrive at the earliest time given and leave at the latest. 

We look forward to welcoming everyone back!

Health and Safety Update

We strictly follow all Government guidance and continue to be vigilant and cautious. The actions that we are taking to keep your child safe at the moment include:

  • A staggered start and end to the school day
  • All children are taught in ‘Bubbles’ of their classmates
  • Bubbles do not mix inside and children eat with their bubbles
  • We now have year group bubbles when playing outside
  • Frequent and thorough handwashing
  • Staff wear masks whenever outside of their bubbles or workspace
  • Any adults visiting a bubble, maintain 2m distance and wear a mask
  • Symptomatic children and staff must not come to school and isolate for 10 days or until they have a negative test result
  • If a child or member of staff has a confirmed covid-19 case, all close contacts will isolate for 10 days – this will likely include their entire bubble

Thank you for supporting us with these important measures.
