I hope that this website gives you an idea of what a great school Boarshaw Primary is.
Our recent Ofsted in March 2011 highlighted the many improvements we have made and recognised us as ‘a good school where children behave well and have positive attitudes to learning.’
Hopefully, our website will give you an idea of the exciting learning environment we have created to support our pupils as they become confident and capable learners.
Through offering a wide range of different experiences and opportunities we encourage all pupils to achieve their highest potential within a culture of respect, support and challenge.
If after looking through our website you would like to find out more information about our school please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Nancy or Wendy in the school office who would be happy to answer your questions or arrange for you to visit the school.
School Vision Statement
‘Every Moment Matters’
We believe that every child and every moment matters. Through positive attitudes and partnerships we aim to develop the whole child in an environment where difference and diversity is celebrated.
We believe that learning and teaching should be creative, purposeful and challenging. Through our effective curriculum we aim to equip each child with the skills they need for lifelong learning. We see each child as an individual and we aim to develop confident learners, who take ownership of their learning and our proud of their achievements.
We believe that all members of our school community should work together to maintain a safe and stimulating environment which encompasses not only the indoor and outdoor learning environment, but the surrounding area as well. We aim to promote an awareness of wider global issues through our curriculum and the links made with our local and global communities. We aim to develop an understanding and tolerance of race, faith and religion.
We believe that a shared vision and ethos, teamwork and positive partnerships – with individual children, the whole class, our colleagues, with governors, parents, carers and the wider community will lead to effective teaching, high standards and successful learning.

Industrial Action 10th July 2014
You may be aware that the NUT, UNISON, GMB and Unite have balloted their members for industrial action. The dispute is in connection with the changes proposed to the teachers’ pension schemes, workload, conditions of service including pay and pay progression and job loss. The dispute with UNISON and public sector unions (GMB and Unite) is in relation to pay rates under National Joint Council terms and conditions.
The school has received notification that the above trade unions which represent teachers and support staff within the school intend to take industrial action on Thursday 10th July 2014.
As staff within the school are members of these unions the school will be affected by industrial action.
We have undertaken a risk assessment for the school and have made the decision to partially close the school for pupils in Reception, Year One Butterflies, Year One Bees, Year Two, Year Three, Year Four, Year Five and Year Six. All children should return to school on Friday 11th July 2014.
The staff at Boarshaw are a very professional and committed team who give unfailingly of their time to support pupils, both in class and beyond the school day. They do not make decisions to strike lightly and are very conscious of the consequences and disruption for parents and pupils alike.
Thank you for your co-operation and apologies for the disruption.
If the circumstances change at any point between now and the planned day of action, I will write to you again.
Manchester has the highest levels of severe child poverty in the UK with 1 in 3 children across Greater Manchester living in poverty. That’s almost 150,000 children.
Mike and Chelsea from Key 103 have launched Mission Xmas and want to make Xmas Special for all children living in Manchester.
To do this they are asking that people buy an extra present that can be donated to help bring a smile to a child’s face on Christmas Day, a child who might otherwise not get any presents at all.
We have decided to support this very worthy Mission by being a Drop off Point.
If you would like to help make Xmas Special for all children in Manchester please donate a present for a boy or girl of any age range between 0 and 18. We have some families who we believe would benefit greatly from this appeal and would ask that if you can donate a present that you do.
Please bring your unwrapped gifts to the school entrance any time between now and Friday December 13th. Should you know any family that you think would benefit from receiving toys from the appeal please see Jackie Harland or Abigail Facchin.
