2012 has been another excellent year for pupil's attainment and progress. The early Years Foundation results are in line with both Lancashire and national averages. The vast majority of pupils made excellent progress. At the end of Key Stage 1 attainment rose. Different groups of children's progress were good and our results were the best for the last five years. The Year 1 phonic check was in line with the national average with pupils making good progress.
At the end of Key Stage 2 pupil's progress was excellent with all pupils making 2 levels of progress in maths from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2 and over 90% making the expected progress in English. A very high proportion of pupils made BETTER than expected progress from KS1 to KS2 with over 85% making better than expected progress in reading, 41% in writing and 95% in maths. Attainment rose again in 2012 and was above the national average. Attendance improved again and is well above the average for similar schools.
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.
