Welcome to Mellor Primary School

Have you ever visited a school that makes you yearn for your childhood?  Perhaps on visiting Mellor Primary School you might have that special thought!

We feel very fortunate to be part of a school that has its origin linked to the Mellor community since 1881. Mellor Primary is essentially a village primary school set in a beautiful rural landscape with a caring family atmosphere combined with the drive and commitment of a school of excellence.

We were delighted to achieve a ‘Good – with outstanding features’ Ofsted Report during our last inspection in April 2013 and we are proud of our pupils’ achievements, both academic and vocational. The inspectors spoke very highly of the school and our pupils and were impressed to see the many exciting opportunities offered to them in a small school. The whole team here at Mellor is committed to continued self evaluation and improvement to enhance the learning of our children and we will look to meet the ever changing expectations to provide an ‘outstanding’ education for our pupils.

To make our school the successful school that it is takes the involvement of the whole community. Children, parents, staff and governors have a genuine pride and love for this special place in which to learn. Indeed our school moto ‘Making People Shine’ was created by one of our children and has been embraced by the whole school.

On 1st October 2011, Mellor became the first Primary Academy in Stockport. We believed this would enable us to provide even better outcomes for our children and as a further stage in our development, from September 2013 we now have  four single age classes in Key Stage 2 (Juniors). The move to single age classes was always a part of our overall strategic plan and has been a very important step in the history of Mellor Primary School.

I hope you will find our website informative and helpful and a tool to support learning at home.

Should you wish to know more about our school, please contact me at school either by telephone or email. School visits are very much welcomed as I am always keen to share the practice and opportunities that we present to new and prospective parents and children.

Best wishes
