Update for Parents/Carers from Mrs Oxton, Headteacher 

Welcome back to Y6 and Y2 who completed their period of self isolation on Thursday 26th November and all returned back to school on Friday 27th November. At the point of producing this website update, there are no cases of COVID-19 in the school – staff or pupils. In order to try to prevent the transmission of the virus please may I ask that parents/carers adhere to the following below, thank you. 





Please do not send your child to school if:

  • they display COVID-19 symptoms
  • anyone else in your household has COVID-19 symptoms
  • someone in your household decides to get a test


If you are unsure about anything or what to do, please call the school first and we will advise you on what to do next. 


Below is a clear quick guide for parents on what to do in different situations:

COVID-19 Advice for Parents in Greater Manchester


Please may we request AGAIN that parents keep a 2 metre distance from all others when on the school site and walking along the one-way system.

We are still operating ‘class bubbles’ and year groups are not mixing together at all. At home time when you collect your children please keep them with you so they do not come into contact with children from other classes. We are working really hard to keep your children as safe as possible, so it concerns us when we see them running off along the school path and mixing with others. THANK YOU.


Don’t forget, you can also contact the school using the usual email address admin@cheetwood.manchester.sch.uk as it is checked regularly each day.



The following is what normally is posted to this home page of the website:


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.


During the 2020/2021 academic year we will review our curriculum again to ensure it is still fit for purpose, is ambitious for all pupils (reflecting all needs and all abilities) and prepares them well for the next stage in life.


We have close links with high schools in North Manchester area, as well as 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.
