Letter from the Chair


Waterloo Primary School is a rapidly improving school. That both combines excellent pupil behaviour and pupil safety with rising standards and achievements. The school has invested significantly in resources and facilities to support and sustain this continuing progression.

We are a community school with very strong links with the local neighbourhood and all its residents.

We expect all of our children in school to develop to their full potential both academically and socially. So that later in life they can thrive to become responsible, caring adults.

Every member of the Governing board and our Head of School Mr Harris and all of the Leadership team believe very strongly that it is every child’s right to be delivered a first class education.

All of our 398 pupils (including nursery) will be offered a broad and balanced curriculum. Where our children are encouraged to do better than they have ever done before. Our excellent, well trained and experienced staff will endeavour to form a family working partnership with parents, children and the wider community to ensure that our children at Waterloo Primary receive the best experience they possibly could.

Being part of Prestolee Multi-Academy trust, we work closely with the Directors, Headteachers and Staff of Prestolee, Bowness, Barton Moss and Tottington Primary schools to provide the very best education and experience we can for the children of our school. We are collectively responsible for monitoring the performance and effectiveness of our school, and for the accountability to the trust, and that the Ethos and Values that Waterloo hold dear are certainly driving factors in the upcoming continued improvement of the school.

Through supporting and challenging the Senior Leadership Team at Waterloo we ensure that the children receive the best possible education in a safe and secure environment.

I have no doubt in my mind that the hopes, aspirations and achievements you have for your child will be fulfilled here at Waterloo.
