Moredon Primary & Nursery School
Swindon SN2 2JG
Moredon Primary and Nursery School is a 2 form entry school with a 52 place nursery attached.
We have been in our current building since 2006 and enjoy lots of outdoor space which we utilise to enhance our curriculum.
As well as academic success, we also believe that learning should be fun and so we plan lots of exciting events, trips and experiences to engage the children in their learning. We place enormous emphasis on excellent learning behaviours as well as making sure children feel safe and happy.
Within our school, we have highly motivated staff and children who feel listened to. Our School Council, Orange Star Committee and ECO Committee, inform the staff about what events and ideas the children would like to see developed in school. In particular, the children enjoy inviting their parents in to watch their class assemblies and also for events like Thrilling Thursdays and Fabulous Fridays!
Our Local Governing Body works closely with the staff to make the best decisions for all children. We also have a very supportive Friends Committee who run lots of events for the children and support the school through fundraising.
Moredon has a wonderful tradition of not only academic achievement but also success in music, drama performances, close links with the local community and celebrating every child’s learning journey.
Moredon is a member of the White Horse Federation which is a collaboration of 7 local schools who work together. This benefits not only the children but the staff too. The children have opportunities to attend inter-federation competitions, visit different schools, go on joint trips and also hold joint meetings of school councils. The staff also benefit tremendously from being members of the WHF-training developed to suit the needs of individuals, support with educational changes and pedagogy and also professional challenge to keep our practice current and refined.
