Welcome to Merrylands Primary School and Nursery

On beginning their education at Merrylands Primary School and Nursery, 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 and Nursery 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 and Nursery 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."

We are delighted to inform you that as of Tuesday 23rd April 2019 Merrylands Primary School will be cashless.

A letter was sent out to all parents/carers with full instructions to open a new account.  This will allow you to check balances and make payments for dinners, trips and Nursery fees.  The account can also be used for other tasks such as checking your child’s meal history and reprinting receipts.

In the letter there is a unique Link Code which is for one time use only.  It is not required once the account has been activated.

The link below will allow login access to the website to create your account.
