Welcome to Merrylands Primary School and Nursery

Here at Merrylands Primary School and Nursery, we believe passionately in the importance of recognising every pupil as a unique individual. We nurture the growth of the whole child academically, socially, emotionally, morally and physically celebrating all achievement in a safe, caring and creative environment.

We believe a happy child will be a successful child and work to ensure every child enjoys school and achieves. We do this by providing the best teaching and learning experiences that we can through an exciting and engaging curriculum.

As a school, we are always looking for new ways to improve and grow. Our staff, coupled with supportive parents and governors, contribute greatly to our school. We all work together with a common goal, to ensure that our children have a sense of worth and achieve their full potential in their learning to enhance their own life chances and aspirations in their primary years.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you require further information.
