WELCOME TO OUR SCHOOL!
 

At the going down of the sun and in the morning.  We will remember them.

We have been learning all about the Great War which ended 100 years ago this year.  Below is a short video showing some of the excellent work produced in school along with the backing music performed by our talented year 6 children.





I am pleased to be able to give you an update on the expansion works at school.
 
Main Block Expansion
I’m delighted to let you know that the main expansion of the school is progressing well and is due for completion by May 2019.  During the holidays scaffolding was put up and work undertaken to the kitchen extension.  The far end of the school hall was signed over to us and is now in use as a lovely new temporary classroom.  The modern, wooden external design will be replicated on the new block.
 
EYFS and Main Office Extension
Our reception children are already using the new exciting classrooms and we are hoping that the new extension to this area will be fully opened by early next week.  The wonderful outdoor area will be used by the EYFS children next week and final completion of this will take place over the October half term.
 
The new office/main entrance is progressing well and is a major improvement in the security of the site. Again, we hope this work will be completed during October half term.
 
Moorhens
The full expansion means that we are able to make improvements to our Moorhens provision.  Once the new block is handed over, Moorhens will have direct access to a quiet zone (our new library), a technology zone, an outdoor zone and the two chalets.  This is exciting because it will increase options for children who go to our extended school’s facility and means that Moorhens will be able to grow safely in a self-contained area of the school.
 
Playing Fields
The school playing field will ultimately return to a full grass area once Balfour Beatty leave the site.  The area which is presently used for Balfour’s vehicles and deliveries will return to grass.  We are now looking at ways that we can use the wildlife area for outdoor learning.  

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.
