Ofsted Outstanding 2011-12

Moortown Primary is a happy and healthy place to learn.  Ofsted judge us to be outstanding and our Key Stage 2 SAT results are amongst the highest in the country: consistently over 90% of our children attain Level 4 or more and make expected progress or better.

Applying for a Reception place for a September 2016 start? We have three open mornings / afternoons planned: Tuesday 20 October at 9.30am; Wednesday 18 November at 2.00pm; Thursday 03 December at 9.30am. If you can’t make these, contact us to arrange a visit or discuss anything about your child starting primary school. The deadline for Reception applications is in January and offers are made on the national offer day which is in April. Read about our admissions policy.

We are very much a ‘family’ school: we cultivate and nurture attitudes of support, respect and care in all our activities and relationships and for all our children. Equally important is learning. We set high standards in everything we do and strongly believe in the importance of the core skills of reading, writing and mathematics.

At Moortown, we also believe that primary school education is an experience that all children should enjoy to the full. We therefore offer a broad and balanced curriculum: drama and health are strengths in our school. The multi-cultural dimension of our school’s community is another strength: we celebrate our many diverse backgrounds. This helps our children to become positive and active citizens.
