Aims of the School

flis-v2At Four Lanes Infant School children are at the core of all we do. We aim to work in collaboration with families to provide a ‘flying start’ to each child’s education.

Our vision is for each child to reach their full potential, both academically and personally, in order to be prepared for life in an ever-changing society.
