About Moor Green
We are a two-form entry primary school situated in the Moseley ward of Birmingham.
Our children come from many different backgrounds and we believe that this is a strength of our school as we reflect the social and cultural diversity that is to be found in the city as a whole.
We provide a safe, caring and stimulating environment to support young children as learners and see ourselves as very much part of the local and wider community.
Our classrooms are well-resourced and we are fortunate to have plenty of outdoor space with a range of different play spaces and learning areas, including gardens and woodland for use as part of the ‘Forest School’ approach to learning.
Our core beliefs are integrity, nurturing, always learning, working together, and taking responsibility – no excuses. These underpin everything we do every day and enable us to carry out our Statement of Intent: To enrich lives and unlock potentail.
Teaching & Learning
We plan a relevant, broad and balanced curriculum with a variety of learning experiences where every child is valued. Our Teaching and Learning Policy ensures that all pupils are taught in a way that meets their needs and provides appropriate challenge.
Teachers assess prior knowledge, teach through clear modelling and questioning, give pupils time to practice new skills, and provide quality feedback to pupils to enable them to progress.
Pupils evaluate their own learning and that of their peers. Teachers are also encouraged to reflect on their practice, evaluating their teaching with colleagues and offering each other constructive feedback and support in order to deepen their professional knowledge and skills. We are very much a learning community at Moor Green.
We provide a range of activities to enrich and extend our curriculum. Each class takes part in at least one educational visit per term and classes also visit local sports facilities, libraries and partner schools. We have a number of visiting music teachers, teaching drumming, guitar and viola. We run a range of extra-curricular clubs, including drumming, computer coding, and football.
