A very warm welcome to Moorside Primary Academy!

Moorside Primary is privileged and proud to be trusted to educate and nurture in excess of 440 pupils in the local community of Droylsden from the ages of 3 to 11.  It is our job to ensure that children feel safe and happy as this provides them with the very best foundations to be successful learners and happy and respectful citizens of the future. 
At Moorside, all staff pride themselves on striving for excellence and placing children at the very heart of everything we do. Our values of pride, collaboration, understanding and respect underpin all our work and reflect our aspirations for the children. Through a combination of support, challenge and high expectations of what they are capable of, children will be guided to be the best they can be and achieve their full potential whilst in our care.
Moorside is a nurturing and exciting place to learn where staff take great pride in being the best possible role models for all children. It is a place where mutual respect and understanding allows children to flourish as individuals and learn to the best of their ability. 
School provides a wealth of enrichment opportunities for your child including many opportunities to participate in sports and clubs where children can excel and engage with a wide range of opportunities beyond the curriculum.
Community and parental engagement are a high priority for us as we value the support of the community and parents, as first educators of children, highly. We understand the positive impact which this partnership can have on a child’s sense of belonging and welcome suggestions and ideas about how we can develop this even further in the future. 
We hope that you have been able to get an insight of Moorside and what our key values and aspirations are for your child’s educational experience. If you would like any further information or would like to visit the school, please do not hesitate to contact me to arrange a personal visit and tour of the school. You would be made very welcome!
