Welcome to Moor Nook Primary School. My name is Mrs Horne and I am the Head Teacher. Moor Nook School occupies a site of almost 5 acres and has a large playing field, playground and wooded copse area. We welcome all our families to visit our spacious, well-resourced and maintained school. Good teaching and personalised learning produces excellent results. Our children reach their full potential due to the commitment of staff, parents and the children themselves. The behaviour in school is excellent. We want our pupils to leave primary school as well-motivated, intelligent citizens ready to embark on the next stage of their education. This is a challenging task and requires staff who are both dedicated and caring. We welcome all visitors and encourage prospective parents / carers to look round the school, talk to staff and pupils and decide whether our school fits your child. For more information about our Local Offer, Pupil Premium and the Curriculum please see the Policy Page. We look forward to meeting you.
2013 - 2014 has been another excellent year for pupil’s attainment and progress. The Foundation Stage Results were outstanding, with the school achieving well above the Lancashire Average. In Year 1, the proportion of pupils reaching the expected level in the phonics check at the end of Year 1 rose substantially and was above the Lancashire average.
In Year 2, we achieved our best results in the last five years; overall attainment at the end of Key Stage 1 rose substantially and was above the Lancashire average. The proportion of pupils gaining a good level of attainment in reading, writing and mathematics rose in 2014 was also about the Lancashire average. The proportion of pupils achieving the highest level (level 3) in all three areas was also the highest for 5 years and above the Lancashire average.
Key Stage 2 results were also very pleasing this year for all subjects. We were especially delighted with the Reading Results with 50% of the children achieving a level 5 and making three levels progress.
Both KS1 and Ks2 have free milk and fruit. The Breakfast club menu is nutritious and tasty Children are encouraged to eat fruit and drink milk. Most are very adventurous, will try new fruits and have grown to really enjoy healthy snacks. Menus for schools dinners are decided upon by the school council and school chef. The children enjoy the salad bar, jacket potatoes, sandwiches, soup and hot meals. Furniture in the spacious dining room is brand new and the correct height for children to enjoy their meals. Moor Nook is working towards the sustainable schools award. We are committed to recycling. All paper, card, plastics, tin cans and glass bottles are recycled. Children who bring their own packed lunch recycle their waste.
