Delph Side Community Primary School

Enjoy, Embrace, Evolve - "We Make the Difference!"

Welcome to Delph Side

Headteacher: Mrs E Ormerod

Headteacher's Welcome:

 

Enjoy, Embrace, Evolve - "We Make the Difference!"     

 

Delph Side is everything a primary school should be; fun, exciting, caring and forward thinking!  We don’t know what jobs our children will do in the future, in fact they might not even exist yet, but at Delph Side we strive to equip our learners with the skills needed, not only to make them successful, but to go beyond that and exceed expectations, the sky’s the limit! 

 

My name is Liz Ormerod and I am proud to be the Headteacher of Delph Side Community Primary School.  Having approximately 200 pupils and a Nursery, we cater for children from the ages of 3 to 11.  Our teachers are exceptional, providing quality, tailored learning for each and every child, every day.  We are a very strong team, our results are testament to that.

 

Our vibrant classrooms have learning at the heart of all our displays and every teacher has an ultra-modern ‘Clevertouch’ board to bring learning to life!  This, in addition to our bank of IPads, means our children are able to work with, and alongside, some of the best technology available in schools.

 

We believe that schools are stronger when they work together and that this provides better opportunities for our children.  We love to work with other schools to ensure we are constantly learning from one another to ensure our children continue to receive the best provision and opportunities .

We are proud to be part of a SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) and Edge Hill University, knowing that we can support the future of teaching – this is an exceptional place to learn, for everyone!

 

Sport is important to us too.  As a member of the SHARES Sport Association all our children access high quality sport events and competitions to promote a love of sport and a healthy lifestyle. We invite in professional coaching staff from the West Lancashire School Partnership to ensure PE lessons, in every discipline, are taught to the highest standard.

However, we recognise that sport is a great leveller and success means different things to different people so we are also keen to support inclusive events, we just want our children to be active!

 

I almost forgot to mention our brilliant Breakfast Club that is totally free and open from 7.45am to ensure our children can start their day in the best possible way!  The children have the opportunity to participate in games and use our ICT to support lesson study. 

After school, we have our 'Learning Zone'.  It is our after school club which is open to pupils from Delph Side.

 

Our Governing Body is incredibly supportive in all that we do and visit the school regularly to challenge and support leaders to ensure we maintain high standards and move forward as an organisation.

Our whole school community joins to achieve our simple goal for each and every one of our children to be the best they can be.  We strive daily to achieve this through our values:

Enjoy, Embrace, Evolve - "We Make the Difference!"

 

We were last inspected by OFSTED in May 2016 and we were very proud to be graded as ‘Good’ in all areas. Our inspection report is available here.

Our door is always open, please call by and meet our wonderful team and have a tour of our fantastic school – it’s a great family, who really do “make the difference”.

 

Every day is an 'open day', so come down and see the magic for yourself!
