School Overview

St Anne’s is a Tameside Primary School. The building belongs to St Anne’s Church and is leased from them. Although we are not a church school, St Anne’s Church is a valuable resource and we endeavour to foster good relationships.  We are currently attempting to revert to C of E (Voluntary Controlled) status in keeping with our school ethos and church links.

The school opened in 1888 and has an interesting history. The school building is traditional in style and houses a hall, seven closed classrooms and a library. The classrooms are well equipped and provide an interesting, learning environment for the children. The school has a playground and an attractive lawn.

To ensure our school is a safe and secure place for our children the playground is completely enclosed and the gate is kept locked during the school day. All visitors must use the main entrance via the intercom system.

The school is one form entry and the children are placed in classes according to their age. The classes are called by the relevant National Curriculum Years. We have one Foundation class (Reception). Two infant classes (Years 1 and 2) which form Key Stage 1 (KS1) and four junior classes (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) which form Key Stage 2 (KS2).

We recognise parents as partners and encourage their involvement and support in the education of their children. Parents are encouraged to help in a variety of ways including accompanying children on educational visits, assisting in classrooms and operating the school library.

Parent evenings are held twice a year in the autumn and spring terms. A written report is sent to parents on an annual basis, usually in July, with an invitation to come into school to discuss the report. Parents are welcome in school and are invited to make an appointment to see the class teacher and/or the headteacher at any time throughout the school year.

We provide a welcoming, caring and stimulating environment. We want our children to be happy, and to enjoy school, as well as to achieve their potential. Our mission is to provide the best education possible and to work towards excellence through learning, sharing and caring.
