About Our School

Longsight Community Primary (LCP) opened in September 2014. The school is connected to the existing Longsight Children’s Centre and Big Life Nurseries Longsight on Farrer Road, sharing a communal entrance. These are exciting times for the community of Longsight and we hope that this close link with the Centre means that our parents are assured of high quality provision from birth right through to age 11.

The Children’s Centre has provided services for the Longsight community for more than 10 years and, together with LCP, will provide services that support, care for and educate children from birth through to moving onto high school at 11 years old. This means you’ll see the same familiar faces from the first time you visit Longsight Children’s Centre to your child starting school and beyond.

Parents and Children at the Heart of Longsight Community Primary

LCP began as a vision of local parents and will always have parents and children leading the growth of the school. They will be involved in all aspects of the school community; their views will be listened to and valued.

Embracing Language and Communication

LCP will have a strong focus on language and communication and working 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.


Longsight Community Primary is a Big Life School
