Welcome to Moorside Primary School


We are looking forward to meeting all our new Reception children and we hope that they are as excited as us in starting their learning journey with us!

This is an uncertain time for us all, but please be assured we are doing everything we can to make your child’s introduction to school the very best it can be. This process starts during the week beginning 20th April, with letters being posted to the parents of all our new starters. These letters will inform you of the next steps to take.

We know that having your child start school is not only an exciting time for them, it can also be a time of great change for you. You’ll want to get it right and you may have questions to ask us. However, because of the current circumstances, we ask you to refrain from calling the office at this stage, as we are operating on reduced office staff numbers and our phones are not being monitored regularly.  If you have not received your letter by the 27th of April, then please use the contact form on our website to let us know.

In time, this page will be updated with all the information you will require. We hope to run a parent information evening, although when this will be is currently uncertain. If this isn’t possible, we will be creative in how we can help your child transition into Reception!

Take care and keep safe, new Moorsiders!
