Menston Primary School

Making our world a better place

Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Menston Primary School. This is a warm, friendly and successful school full of brilliant people (most of them under 12 years old!). Our children are fabulous. They care about their friends, their school and their world, and they work hard to learn and to teach each other interesting, useful stuff. They particularly like our commitment to providing regular outdoor learning for all year groups - be that running the Daily Mile, pond dipping, minibeast hunting and den building or just being outdoors and learning about the natural world. Whilst doing all this they achieve very high standards. The children have taught us that the school should be ‘Making our World a Better Place.’ So that is what we work together to do - every day.

Please contact the School Office on 01943 873180 if you would like to learn more about our school and to arrange a visit.

November 2019

We have recently enjoyed a ‘Road Safety Week’ in which children learned how to stay safe when crossing roads. In the same week, Bradford Council’s Shipley Area Committee considered the proposal to improve pedestrian facilities at the school. The scheme will remain on a list of possible future works to be considered in the new year. In the meantime, both the school and the Parish Council have agreed to help Bradford Council fund the proposal. To this end we will be holding a sponsored event in the spring and will be approaching local businesses. I am very hopeful that if the school can make a significant contribution to this project then the council will be persuaded to go ahead. I do hope families and other residents will help with this, as a safe crossing would benefit the wider community. Well done to our year six ambassadors who have led tours of the school on both our recent open days. Our visitors were hugely impressed by READ MORE

The Children say…

“The KS2 Playground is the place to be. There is everything you need; hop scotch, a great tig area and even a ball court for playing football in.”

“I love the Stone Circle because it is an area where you can think about stuff quietly and it is a very calming place.”

“I like the Woodland area because it feels like you’re in an actual forest away from school. The Woodland area is my favourite place to be in school.”

“I enjoy playing on the KS2 field because you do outdoor learning on the learning posts and explore the wonders of the world.”

“I like the Daily Mile because it is a great way to relax after some hard work.”

“When I enter the Willow Tunnel, I feel like I’m in an enchanted place with twisted branches all around. I also like the cool breeze blowing around.”

“I like Den Building because you can build a den and feel like you are in the Stone Age. You can pretend that the covers are animal skins. In the Den Building area, you can make pretend campfires and have fun as well as learn.”
