Welcome to our new website

Hello and a warm welcome to Manchester Road Primary Academy

As principal of Manchester Road Primary Academy, it makes me proud to be able to write the opening page to our website and blogging facility.

Manchester Road is an amazing place for children to learn, and I believe that children who come here enjoy being at school and are enthusiastic about their learning and their prospective futures.

The 21st Century is a challenging place for children and young children to grow, and both myself and all the staff here are passionate about ensuring that all our children are successful in their learning, emotional well being and in the relationships that they form throughout their time here.

Education is about so much more than academic achievement, and the ethos we promote here is one of respect for others and all the different skills, knowledge and understanding that they bring to our school community. Everyone is different, and this is something which should be celebrated each and every day.

Manchester Road offers a great curriculum, inspired by visits out to fantastic places, and visitors to school who really motivate the children about different topics. We have a full and varied curriculum, which teaches the children about all areas of life and, as you’ll see from our Facebook page, sport is an important part of our school life.

Plans for The New Extension

The planning for the new extension to school has been submitted along with a funding request. We are hoping that sometime during June we will hear whether the build will be able to go ahead.

This is a really exciting prospect for Manchester Road, as it will bring the whole community together, and allow the school to move forward in its practice even quicker!

The plans include new toilets and cloakrooms for the infants, a new staff room, an inclusion classroom, a corridor to link our buildings, new office space and 2 intervention rooms.

The images and floor plans below give a great indication of what the school will look like, and how the new space will be used. You’ll also notice that the build will allow us to demolish the older 50’s parts of the building and the mobile classrooms currently on the junior playground.

We have a community drop in on Tuesday 10th May form 7-8pm, and a parents drop in from 6-7pm on Thursday 12th May. Everyone is more than welcome to come along!
