I’m delighted to be able to welcome you to a brand new primary school for West Didsbury. Ever since we got the go-ahead to spread the outstanding education we provide at Didsbury CE Primary to a new school in West Didsbury, we’ve been incredibly excited by the opportunity to offer more children the chance to experience our high-quality teaching by caring staff in a warm, family environment. It has been a source of great pleasure to watch this young community grow since we opened in September 2015.
So what can you expect from West Didsbury CE Primary? We believe the academic, creative and spiritual development of your child must always be at the heart of everything we do, and to that end we focus on an exciting, modern curriculum where children are encouraged and nurtured to reach high standards in all areas of learning.
Opening in a brand-new building on Central Road also offered us the chance to work with architects to plan exactly the right building to provide the stimulating curriculum we want to teach, develop a new creative design studio and promote outdoor learning.
When people come to West Didsbury CE Primary they now tell us not only that it's a fabulous building, but that it feels like a very caring school, with staff who will do everything to support children. By both cherishing and challenging your child, this is a school that children, parents and teachers have quickly come to love. And with each passing year seeing two new Reception classes until we are a thriving 420-pupil primary school by September 2022, it's a wonderful opportunity for everyone to be part of something very special - a brand new school with a firm faith foundation that's building on a 400-year tradition of excellence at Didsbury CE Primary.
We hope to see you very soon!
Matt Whitehead, Executive Headteacher
