Walk to School Week

Even with the downpour this morning it was great to hear that so many families still walked to school this morning. Teachers are tracking who has walked to school and at the end of the week we will find out which class will win additional breaktime.

The Road Safety group continue to work hard to raise awareness and improve safety outside of school. Thank you. We will publish their road safety video as soon as we can - watch this space - it is impressive!

Birmingham City Council Notice of Proposed Expansion


Severe Weather Arrangements

A central decision will be made whether or not to close all schools in the event of heavy snowfall across the whole of the city.  Any decision affecting all schools to close or stay open will be made by 6:45am at the latest, and such blanket decisions will be announced through Radio WM, Heart FM and Free Radio.  We will also post an announcement on the school website.
In the event that this school is not able to comply with a central decision to remain open because of factors unique to the school (e.g. burst pipes, heating failure), we will communicate this to parents as early as possible.  The informal networks set up by groups of parents are also extremely useful in passing information and keeping the school line open for urgent calls.

Please do not send unaccompanied children to school

Moor Hall School - Our Vision

The Moor Hall child is a healthy, confident and responsible child whose achievement is the very best it can be.The Moor Hall child is creative, innovative, values and nurtures key transferrable knowledge, skills and attitudes in preparation for an ever changing future.


Moor Hall is a one form entry school, which caters for children from Reception to Year 6. We are a 'small school with a big heart'. We provide a caring, nurturing and supportive environment where children feel safe and happy; ready to learn.

Our pupils enjoy helping each other to learn and play. The school's buddy system and development of playtime pals helps to ensure that children quickly settle into their new school environment.

Our enthusiastic and professional staff provide pupils with a wide range of learning opportunities which help them achieve often outstanding results at KS1 and KS2. We believe that high-quality teaching and learning takes place when stimulating activities are made relevant to the needs and interests of the child. Where possible, children learn out of the classroom. During each year at school, a range of 'outdoor' learning opportunities are planned. We also have 'thematic' weeks and encourage visitors, such as authors, artists and members of the community, to widen the children's learning.

We embrace technology that opens up learning opportunities that are interesting, interactive and enjoyable. Children have access to computers in class and are timetabled to use the school's new ICT suite.

We encourage children to develop responsibility to each other, the environment and the wider community. The school's setting in Mere Green, surrounded by a natural learning environment, means that children can learn about sustainability and gain a sense of community.

Moor Hall has consistently performed well in attempting very high academic standards. Coupled with this we strongly believe in developing the 'whole child' and aim to offer a wide range of learning opportunities so that our children grow in confidence and gain an understanding of the society into which they are growing.

The partnership between parents and school is important to us; we want you to feel staff at the school are approachable so that we can work together for the benefit of your child.
