Description

We would like to inform you (as prospective parents) of our plans for a Primary Free School with Nursery. We would also like to get your feedback on our plans, as we are currently in the process of writing our application to the DfE (Department for Education). We are proposing to set up a primary school with nursery in the Oldham area near the Manchester border because this current wave of Free School applications does not include Manchester as a priority area (but for this current wave of applications, Oldham is one of the DfE's Greater Manchester priority-boroughs. However, for Manchester parents interested in sending their children to our school, we would organise school buses to make this happen).

The main educational feature of our school will be the teaching of Mother tongue languages, especially at the Early Years stages in our nursery and an embedded emphasis on Education for Global Citizenship in our Primary School curriculum. We would like to base our school ethos and pedagogy on our experience of running supplementary schools, where mother tongue and cultural heritage teaching are used as educational assets to raise educational attainment (as recommended by extensive educational research in this area) rather than being seen as educational deficits.

Here is a link to our consultation page: https://meapsite.wordpress.com/primary-school/

We would love to hear from you, so please come and join us and help us to shape our proposal for a school that works for our ethnically diverse communities!
