Welcome to Etchells Primary School
We are a vibrant, happy, welcoming school and provide a stimulating and inclusive environment for learning.
Etchells has continued to be judged a GOOD school with OUTSTANDING Early Years and Leadership & Management by Ofsted in October 2021.
If you are considering Etchells for your child please do not hesitate to get in touch. Please look at our Prospective Parents Information on the right of this page and take a tour of the school. We are happy to show you round so you can see our school in action; please phone the school office to make an appointment.
We have an experienced, highly skilled and energetic team who work together to plan exciting and stimulating learning opportunities for our pupils. The changes that have been put in place over the last few years have had such a positive impact on the progress and attainment of our pupils. We work with the children to create our exciting curriculum which is builit around Knowledge, Exploration and Communication. We take pride in responding to the learner's interests and ensure that lessons are challenging, fun and purposeful.
We have a wonderful school environment, with well-developed areas in the school grounds to maximize the children's opportunities to both play and learn. We have an established Forest School on site which pupils from all year groups participate in. Our school incorporates a Resource Base for children with specific special educational needs which underpins our overarching philosophy of inclusion and Education for All. These children are integrated in all the classes through school where appropriate. We also have a 40 place nursery on site, as well as before and after school provision.
We recognise the importance of parental involvement in a child's education and provide regular communication regarding events, news and children's progress. Please use the website calendar for key school dates, to look at your child's class page and to find out more about our curriculum and policies. Links to our weekly newsletter can be found at the bottom of this page.

Help Us to Win a Canopy!
It’s competition time at Etchells Primary School as A&S Landscape, a supplier of school canopies in Manchester, is giving away a fabric canopy worth £15,000 to one school. We would love to win this canopy as our outdoor area has NO shade or shelter. Our outdoor learning space is mainly a concrete slope which can only be used in good weather. This is a nursery nightmare! To win this competition we have to collect the most votes! You can click here to vote for our school. Please support us to bring our outdoor provision up to a standard our youngest learners deserve!
Once you have voted, please spread the message on friends, parents and supplier’s websites as well as social media to help us win!
