Moortown Primary is a happy and healthy place to learn.

We’re a small school with a big heart, tucked away in Moortown, North Leeds: ‘Moortown is such a family orientated, caring yet high achieving school. Both are children are thriving at Moortown and love attending school’ (Annual parents’ survey, 2022).


Ofsted judge us to be outstanding and our Key Stage 2 SAT results are amongst the highest in the country: consistently over 90% of our children attain nationally expected levels or higher and make expected progress or better.


If you’d like a paper copy of any information contained on our website, or any information referred to, please ask (there is no charge for this).

We are very much a ‘family’ school: we cultivate and nurture attitudes of support, respect and care in all our activities and relationships and for all our children. Equally important is learning. We set high standards in everything we do and strongly believe in the importance of the core skills of reading, writing and mathematics.

At Moortown, we also believe that primary school education is an experience that all children should enjoy to the full. We therefore offer a broad and balanced curriculum. The multi-cultural dimension of our school’s community is another strength: we celebrate our many diverse backgrounds. This helps our children to become positive and active citizens.

This website – with its photos, children’s work, quotes, and news updates – should give you a picture of life at Moortown Primary School but do please come and see the school at work and discover how your child could thrive here.
