School Life

Longsight Community Primary is situated in the heart of Longsight, a thriving district serving a diverse and culturally rich community.

We have over 210 pupils aged 4-11, coming from 21 different countries and speaking 16 different languages. Our children are happy children who love school.

Our school day starts at 8:30am and finishes at 2:45pm.

Our Reception parents are encouraged to take part in our daily Stay and Play.

Our school building which is co-located with Longsight Children’s Centre is a wonderfully warm and inviting building that is full of light and space for children to think and be creative.

Our vision is to be a community school which is truly inclusive and meet the needs of all the children. Care, respect and tolerance are core values of our 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.
