Welcome to Merrylands Primary School

On beginning their education at Merrylands Primary School, children become part of a friendly co-operative environment where there is an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust. Each child is made to feel that they have a vitally important role to play in the life of the school. Achievements, no matter how small, are recognised and acknowledged.

At Merrylands Primary School we deliver a broad and balanced curriculum with experienced staff trained to a high level. In addition to gaining language, mathematical, scientific and technological skills, your child will build confidence, develop self-esteem, learn to make decisions and develop the ability to articulate feelings and ideas. We also attach great importance to the development of children's social skills and seek to enable them to build relationships with other children and adults.

Merrylands Primary School plays an active part in the wider community and parents and visitors are always welcome. Similarly, children are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities provided by the school and local organisations.

Our school is "A place where everybody is a valued individual and where all staff and children strive, individually and collectively, to achieve their best in all aspects of school life."
