Moorlands Primary School is a Foundation Primary School with pupils ranging from 3 to 11 years of age. The school has a pre-school nursery 'Little Learners' which has the capacity for 24 children and offers the 30 hours provision. The school is situated close to the Wednesbury/West Bromwich boundary.
The school was built in 1960 with seven classrooms in the main building, a multi-purpose hall and a school kitchen. The school also has its own enclosed but extensive playing fields with a variety of outdoor learning resources.
Parents are kept as fully informed as possible concerning the life of the school. Regular Newsletters and other letters are sent home via the children. In addition to this we operate a confidential Text Messaging Service and a Web Site. We also want to involve parents in the life of the school and you will receive communications on this from time to time.
The school has a parenting group called ' Friends of Moorlands' they organise events and activities that pupils and members of the community can enjoy.
The needs of your child are our main priority. If you have any worries about your child: educational, emotional, behavioural or any other nature please call in at school to see the Class Teacher or a member of the Senior Leadership Team. If necessary, arrangements will be made to meet out of school hours.
