About Us

Statement of values and ethos:

To go further than we thought possible.
To run faster than we hoped.
To reach higher than we dreamed.
To become the best that we can be.

A message from the Headteacher:

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

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 … 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 (SALS). An alliance consisting of diverse schools across Salford and the North West, united by the desire to provide high quality training and support in the local area and the next generation of Outstanding Teachers.

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

Mr S. Lawler-Smith
Head Teacher
