Moortown Primary School
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 2015 start? We’ve had three open mornings / afternoons already, but contact us if you’d like to arrange a visit or discuss anything about your child starting primary school. Leeds City Council’s on-line application system has opened. Parents should have received their ‘nearest school’ letter during October. The deadline for Reception applications for September 2015 is 15 January 2015 and offers will be made on 16 April 2015 (the national offer day).
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.
