Year 6 met the Crucial Crew!

Year 6 spent a morning learning about personal safety, responsibility and independence, ready for their journey to high school next year. They met police officers, first aiders and nutritionists and learnt about road safety, water safety and being safe on public transport, learning exciting and important lessons. Look at the photos below.

           The Friars Primary School is taking over the world!

                                                               Exciting News!

Fifteen of our Key Stage Two children have been working their socks off with The Museum of Science and Industry to design a 'Kids Take Over' day which took place at the Museum on Saturday 18th November.

The children  designed a Museum trail and  highlighted some specific and special objects  included and related to the history of Salford.

They also tested a craft activity involving the design of paper gliders inspired by the work of The Avro aircraft company.

                                            We hope you enjoyed our exciting exhibition!

                                                                                  Year Two, Salford Museum Visit

 Our pupils recently visited Salford Museum, donned the costumes of a bygone era and experienced life in old Salford

                                                                                     (It looked hard!)

Ofsted: Pupils are provided with rich, stimulating and creative opportunities to learn.

Ofsted: The proportion of pupils exceeding the progress expected of them has increased...many pupils made good and sometimes outstanding progress last year from their starting points.

Pupils are polite, welcoming and respectful to visitors. Pupils' highly positive and trusting relationships with staff help to boost their confidence in learning and self esteem. Ofsted 2015

Ofsted: A typical parent comment was, 'I can't praise the school enough'.

Ofsted: Leaders ensure there is no discrimination.

Ofsted: Leaders are fully committed to helping all pupils reach their potential.
