Headteacher's Welcome

It is an absolute pleasure and honour to welcome you to the Moorside Community Primary School website.


We are a primary school in Swinton, Salford, which moved into a state-of-the art building in September 2013, and we are situated on a campus we share with Moorside High School and The Deans Youth Centre.


In everything we do, we set high expectations for all pupils under our care and guidance. As a result, we ensure all pupils develop a love for learning – in the classroom; at our after-school clubs; on educational trips and on our many residentials.


In 2016 I was designated a National Leader of Education.  Alongside this, our school became a National Support School, allowing for both myself and 'Team Moorside' to offer support and advice to other schools, in and outside of our Local Education Authority, in order to achieve the best outcomes for all children.  


Our pupils are incredibly precious to us and we understand how important it is that they develop as happy, well-rounded individuals. We enjoy working alongside our parents to enable their children to thrive here as they become successful and engaged learners.


Every member of our team here at Moorside are proudly committed to our aim …..to ensure every child flourishes.


It is this ethos that has been a driving force in Moorside becoming the lead school in the Salford Alliance of Learning Schools.  An alliance consisting of 6 diverse local schools, united by the desire to help create the next generation of Outstanding Teachers.


We hope you enjoy looking around our website to get a feeling for our wonderful school.
