Principal’s Welcome

Principal’s Welcome 2017-11-02T14:49:56+00:00

We are a welcoming and friendly school with over 600 children aged from 3-11 situated close to the centre of Morley in south Leeds. We are committed to ensuring that all children leave our school with the skills they require to make a positive contribution to society. Our staff team are approachable, committed and demonstrate a real enthusiasm for learning.

Here at Morley Newlands we recognise that a child’s time at primary school is short and only happens once so we passionately believe that we must make every second of it count. All of our staff have a shared vision to be a school that puts children’s lives and futures at the centre of everything we do. We have high expectations of ourselves and our children and strive to ensure they are given the best possible start.

The fundamental aim of our school is to embed a love of learning in all of our children that will stay with them for life. We will do this by removing barriers, identifying and releasing potential and creating curious minds. Our curriculum underpins these aims by ensuring we:

  • Celebrate and embrace diversity and difference
  • Support and guide our children
  • Provide our children with a range of learning opportunities

We recognise the crucial importance of a three-way partnership between school, children and parents/carers and endeavour to build positive relationships to ensure that all of our children reach their full potential. A successful partnership depends on close co-operation, support and trust between home and school and recognition that we have a shared responsibility.

We would like to extend a very warm welcome to all visitors to this site. Whether you are an existing parent or potentially a new parent, we hope that you find our website informative, useful and a reflection of our wonderful school. Thank you for taking the time to visit our website – should you require any further information please don’t hesitate to contact us.
