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 potential.

The Wider Community We enjoy strong links with the community, including Bishop Challenor Sports College, King Edward’s High School For Boys, Birmingham Music Service, and Aston Villa Footbal Club. We have an active PTA who support us in many ways, including running events, fundraising, and developing our outdoor learning spaces.
Our History Moor Green Infant and Junior Schools were built in 1953. The present primary school was created through the amalgamation of these schools and came into being on September 1st 2006.The school started the process of expansion in September 2011 and now admits 60 pupils to Reception every year.In September 2015 the school joined the REAch2 Academy Trust, appointing a new Head Teacher, Miss Nicola Fisher,

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.
