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.
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.
