« Cheetwood Challenge – Read with your child at least 3 times per week, don’t forget to sign their home reading book! »


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, where British values underpin our ethos.  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 and beyond this living and working in 21st century Britain.

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 children’s work and activities.  In 2014 Ofsted commented that “in the playground pupils enjoy one another’s company and show great respect and tolerance of each other’s cultural backgrounds and circumstances”.

The curriculum we provide has had much attention spent on it in recent years 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 National Curriculum which became statutory in September 2014.

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 2014 Ofsted judged Cheetwood as “a good school …..  pupils’ attitudes to learning, their behaviour in lessons and around school and their enjoyment of what they do are outstanding”.

We welcome you to our school community.
