About Firs Primary School

The Firs is currently a two form entry primary school in Sale, Cheshire. We are larger than the average primary school and the numbers on roll have increased by 29% in the last three years. We currently have 432 pupils on roll (plus 34 pupils in Nursery). We have a diverse catchment area, including social housing and privately owned properties. As a result of this, we have a very high proportion of pupils (39%) benefitting from free school meals which is much higher than schools nationally. There are currently 26 different languages spoken within the school and the percentage of pupils with English as an additional language is increasing steadily each year. We will be continuing to grow our school to a three form entry primary school starting in September 2021.

We are one of only six schools in Trafford that host an SSC (Small Specialist Class) for ten junior aged children with social communication difficulties and/or complex learning difficulties. These children live across Trafford and places are allocated by the LA. Our ethos is very inclusive and the SSC is an integral part of the school.

The Board of Governors actively support and challenge the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team, and helps to shape the vision and direction of the school.

We have very high aspirations for all our pupils and pro-actively tackle the barriers to learning that many of our children have. In our 2017 OFSTED, it was noted that “Leaders are determined and uncompromising in their pursuit of a first-class education for all pupils. “Learning at the Firs is designed to develop confident, independent learners that show a positive and resilient attitude.”

In recent years we have achieved a number of awards, including: Leading Parent Partnership Award, Basic Skills Quality Mark on four occasions, Healthy Schools, Gold PE Kite Mark, the Silver Anti-bullying award, Wellbeing Award for Schools and the Primary Science Quality Mark.

We are fortunate to have extensive school grounds, which we utilise for sport, gardening and lots of outdoor learning! Our school vision statement is ”INSPIRE, BELIEVE, ACHIEVE!" Therefore, we encourage the children to achieve their personal potential by developing a love of learning and a strong belief that we can all "grow our brains". Children at the Firs make excellent academic progress in the time that they are with us and develop essential life skills.
