About Acacias Community Primary School

Acacias CPS is situated in the area of Burnage, some 4 miles south of the centre of Manchester and close to the Stockport boundary. The area is predominantly 1930’s semi-detached housing and whilst mainly privately owned there is also a fairly large local authority housing estate from which the school draws pupils. The school population reflects the local area and over 70% of children have English as an additional language. There are currently over 470 pupils on roll of which 10% are known to be eligible for free school meals. The partnership with parents, carers and the community and their involvement in the children’s learning is strong. Favourable comments have been made about the approachability of teachers and other staff, who are receptive to concerns and open to suggestions for improvements. Ofsted says ‘Parents commonly talked about the efforts staff make to support pupils’ learning and well-being. A typical comment was ‘The staff are incredibly hardworking and enthusiastic, and always have time to speak to parents about any concerns.’
