Outstanding and Inclusive Education
We provide an outstanding education, which is respectful of the diverse ethnicity, religion, families, educational needs and abilities of all our children. Our curriculum matches the National Curriculum but was written by our skilled team of teachers, so that it meets the needs of our children and our community.
Our priority is that all children are happy and engaged in their school. We ensure that they know how to be healthy and are able to make good choices for themselves. We support them to develop their own thoughts and express their feelings in a safe environment. We have a Mental Health First Aider in school, who is on site to support with all wellbeing needs for both staff and children.
Aspirational and Inspirational Support from Birth
We work with parents and partners agencies to educate, develop and care for children from birth into high school. Our children will be inspired to achieve their full potential and are given a wealth of opportunities to inspire them for the future. Our Year 5 and 6 children all take part in a Careers invite, which allows them to find out the skills they need to have to do a wealth of jobs in the future.
Valuing Language and Communication
As a Voice 21 school, we have a strong focus on language and communication and work with families to ensure children are confident communicators from an early age. We will celebrate and value all languages and recognise that communication and language is the foundation of children’s attainment.
Our vision for Oracy is… ‘to ensure that all children have the language skills they need in order to equip them to achieve their best’.
Connecting to the Wider World
The children and families at our school have settled in Longsight from all over the world. We will harness their experiences to ensure our school curriculum is outward looking. Our children start an Activity Passport, from the time they join us in Reception. The passport allows the children to explore beyond the curriculum and experience as much as they can of the wider locality, before they move to Secondary education.
Valuing and Engaging Parents and Children
Longsight Community Primary began as a vision of local parents and we will always have parents and children involved in all aspects of the school community. Their views will be listened to and valued. Mrs Stephenson, our Family Support Worker, is available everyday to speak to parents and offer a wealth of support. We have a host of parent workshops every half term and the at the end of each term we have a coffee morning for all parents. We are incredibly proud of the relationships we form with our families.
Value for Money
Longsight Community Primary School is part of the Big Life Schools Multi-Academy Trust. This means that we are able to achieve great value for money by accessing back office support and guidance from The Big Life group. We are a non-profit organisation, and any money we save as a result of being part of a multi-academy trust is reinvested into our children and our communities, through offering fit-for-purpose buildings, extended support at early years, and out-of-hours activities.
