Our School

LCP is a new school. We are an over-subscribed popular school in the heart of Longsight. We are very proud to be serving our community.

About Our School

LCP opened their brand new building in September 2014. The school is connected to the existing Longsight Children’s Centre and Big Life Nurseries Longsight on Farrer Road and they share an 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.


Parents and Children at the Heart of Longsight Community Primary

Longsight Community Primary 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

Longsight Community Primary 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.


Birth to 11 Years Approach

Longsight Community Primary will be co-­located with the existing outstanding Children’s Centre. This 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.

Longsight Community Primary is a Big Life School

Dear parent and carers,

On Thursday, 6 June our wonderful friend and treasured colleague Mrs Sadia Ahmed passed away.

Sadia was the life and soul of our school and she leaves behind a huge hole in the heart of Longsight Community Primary. Sadia was an amazing teacher and her children are a testament to her determination that all our children achieved their potential.

She was a wonderfully kind, open-hearted friend whose sense of humour still make us smile now even while we are all grieving. I know she welcomed all parents with open arms and that you will all miss her as much as we will. Please talk to your children about Mrs Ahmed as I know they may have questions. A book of condolence will be open this week for you to share your messages and memories.

We are heart-broken for the life not yet lived, but grateful for the life she did live. Rest in peace our beloved friend.

Mrs Rukhsana Ahmed and all the staff and friends of Longsight Community Primary.
