Welcome from the Headteacher

At Cheetwood we provide an orderly and caring community in which all pupils can learn and understand, in a happy and secure atmosphere.  We seek to give encouragement to learners of all abilities to develop a sense of purpose and confidence, which will provide a secure foundation for their later education.

 

The family atmosphere of the school indicates the value we put upon a co-operative relationship between child, staff and parents/carers.

 

The multicultural nature of the school population and its inner-city locality close to the heart of Manchester are a constant source of inspiration for the pupils’ work and activities.  In 2018 Ofsted commented that “Work to promote the pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is highly effective. Pupils’ understanding of fundamental British values is exceptional. Leaders value the richness of beliefs, cultures and experiences of pupils and staff.”

 

The curriculum we provide has had much attention spent on it to ensure that it delivers the legal requirements as set out in both the Early Years Foundation and National Curriculums and is also relevant to the needs and experiences of our inner-city children. We have significantly re-worked the Y1 to Y6 curriculum so that it meets the requirements of the challenging National Curriculum which became statutory in September 2014.

 

“Teaching and the design of the curriculum develop pupils’ knowledge of the local and wider community. Extra curricular activities, such as sport and charity work enhance pupils’ learning.” Ofsted 2018.

 

We have close links with Abraham Moss High School, together with other schools in North Manchester, Salford and Bury, essential for the smooth transition from Primary to Secondary education.

 

This school offers a happy and secure foundation for your child’s education, based upon a set of core values.  Cheetwood is a school with high aspirations.  In 2018 Ofsted judged Cheetwood as good, stating “This is a highly inclusive school, where everyone feels safe, respected and valued. Pupils enjoy school and are very keen to learn”.

 

We welcome you to our school community.
