Head's Welcome

As the Head teacher of Pike Fold Primary School it is a real pleasure and privilege to welcome you to our school website. This website aims to give you a taste of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils. We hope that you enjoy your visit, and that you find any information you are looking for.

Pike Fold is a large primary school in Blackley, North Manchester. As a school we have many strengths and these include our strong emphasis on a values system that underpins all aspects of school life. We have a strong commitment to ensuring that every child has the opportunity to experience a creative and energising curriculum. This results in good academic progress and attainment as well as a strong sense of community which extends beyond the school gates to Blackley Village.

We are passionate that the school flourishes by providing a positive and stimulating learning environment, we are very fortunate to have such a wonderful school with grounds that support and enhance our children’s learning.

At Pike Fold we value every child and encourage them all to develop socially, emotionally, academically and physically to achieve their full potential in every aspect of life. We aim for all of our children to leave Pike Fold as life- long learners who have academic skills and emotional resilience to take on any challenges that they may encounter. Your school days are meant to be the best days of your life and we strive to make this a reality for the children who come to our school.

We have a fantastic, dedicated team of talented and caring staff whose aim is to ensure progress for all of our children.

These aims are summed up in our motto, created by our pupils “Where Stars Sparkle”

                         Every pupil is given the equal opportunity to shine like a star!

It is a real privilege to be given the opportunity to be the Head teacher of this school and I am proud of all the people who contribute in some way to providing high quality education and opportunities for our children. I hope that the children leave Pike Fold having achieved their very best and look back with really positive and happy memories of the people, events and their time at this school.
