'We learn so much and we can follow our dreams!' Pupil quoted by Ofsted January 2016
Webster Primary School is growing from a one to a three-form entry community school for children aged five to eleven years old and has nursery places for three and four year olds. The school is housed in a large single-storey building with newly surfaced playgrounds on three sides and extensive gardens and fields to the side and rear of the school. Nursery, Reception and Key Stage 1 classes are in the Lloyd Street side of the building (originally Webster Infant School) while Key Stage 2 are in the other half of the building which backs onto the field facing Moss Side Brewery (originally Webster Junior School). The building is a 1973 construction which was completely refurbished through 2012 and 2013.
We have three buildings, three halls and provide our own school meals.
The main entrance and office for the school is at the front of the building off Denmark Road and is clearly sign posted. All visitors must report to the main office. There is a separate entrance for Nursery pupils, which can be located by following the footpath on the left hand side of the main entrance. The main daily entrance for pupils is at the back of school off the main playground, pupils from Years 1-6 line up in the playground to be collected by staff at the beginning of the school day. Reception pupils should use their classroom doors for entry to and collection from school.
The school has a current capacity for 592 children between the ages of three and eleven, which includes a 52-place nursery. In 2018-2019 we are 3 form entry in Reception, KS1 and Year 3-4, and two forms in Years 5-6.
We also have a Resource Provision Base for 7 children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder/Speech and Language Impairment (Click the Rainbow Rooms pencil icon for further information about our Resource Provision). This is the white extension at the back of the building which was built in 2010.
Webster is a founder member of the Heart Of Manchester partnership of 7 schools in Moss Side, Hulme and Whalley Range who support each other to improve teaching, learning and educational outcomes for the children in our community. See the Heart of MCR for more information.
On our staff training day at the National Holocaust Centre we thought about what qualities we want our children to have when they leave Webster and what we as a whole staff can do to ensure this happens.
Here are our thoughts:
