In order for us to prepare for this, evaluate feasibility and to ensure the safety of all children, parents and staff, it is necessary for us to know if you are intending to send your child/ren to school if and when we are open those year groups. We understand that your position may change over the weeks ahead. This is to give us an indication.

VE Day Celebrations

Mr Watts has recorded three songs for you to learn that we can sing to celebrate the 75th anniversary of ‘victory in Europe’. This marked the end of WW2 and is a significant event in history. Some of your classes will be learning more about this next week.
  • Wednesday - song 1 - Chattanooga Choo Choo
  • Thursday - song 2 - Moonlight Serenade
  • Friday  - song 3 - There’ll Always Be an England
  • The final medley with lyrics will be published on Friday.

You can view them all as they're published by CLICKING HERE, or by clicking on the blog link to the right. --->

Alternatively keep an eye on our Twitter feed as that'll tell you when they go live. 

 
Thank you to everyone who took part in the Andrew Lloyd Webber challenge. We hope you enjoy the completed song. It was great to see you all. Let us know if you would like us to do another one!

WELCOME TO OUR SCHOOL

                  Nut_free_school

I am pleased to be able to give you an update on the expansion works at school.

Main Block Expansion
The new school build is officially open and being used by Years 1 through to 6.  On 4th October, 2019, internationally renowned saxaophonist Amy Dickson officially opened the new build with lots of other dignatories and people that helped with the process attending the ceremony.  
 
EYFS and Main Office Extension
We are continuing to work on developing the outside area and have recently done some planting and the area is starting to look good.  New access control has been installed to the gates to safeguard our children and the school office has now moved to a better location which will provide better security to the school site.

Moorhens
From September Moorhens have direct access to the ICT suite, an outdoor zone and the chalets.  In the Autumn term we will be working on our new library area.  Once this is complete, this will be another zone that Moorhens will be able to access.

Other Planned Improvements
The existing Year 3 and Year 6 classrooms will be refurbished, along with the library, during next year. These classrooms will become Year 1 for 2020/21.  We have conducted an asbestos survey of these areas and I have detailed the findings and advise in 'news/correspondence'.
 
Playing Fields
The school playing field is now fully grassed.  We will be removing fencing in a few weeks time, once the grass has settled. 

Kind regards,
Andrew Steggall

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.

Visioning_for_Moor_Hall


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.
