At Layer-de-la-Haye Primary School, we understand the importance of choosing the right school for your child.  Every school is unique in its character and curriculum and we are no different.  We warmly invite prospective parents and children to view our school during the working day: this will provide you with an insight of our practice and allow you to see what Layer pupils are offered in the classroom and beyond.  To arrange a visit, please contact Mrs McIntyre using admin@layer-de-la-haye.essex.sch.uk or by calling the school office on 01206 734249.
