Micklehurst All Saints CE Primary is a Voluntary Controlled Primary School within the borough of Tameside.
Lying seven miles due east of Manchester, in the North West region of England, Tameside is a neat, compact Borough in an area of scenic beauty, industrial heritage and easy communication with the rest of the country. Tameside is roughly eight miles across – with just under a quarter of a million people settled in its 40 square miles.
Tameside is framed to the north by the River Medlock, to the south by the River Etherow and the scenic beauty of Werneth Low, to the east by the Pennines, and to the west by the City of Manchester.
The Borough was created in 1974 and takes its name from the River Tame which links the nine towns constituting the Borough: Ashton-under-Lyne, Audenshaw, Denton, Droylsden, Dukinfield, Hyde, Longdendale (comprising the villages of Broadbottom, Hollingworth and Mottram), Mossley and Stalybridge.
It combines a mix of urban and rural landscapes and the area includes historic market towns, a canal network and industrial heritage areas, as well as direct motorway links and a 20-minute journey to Manchester International Airport via the M60.
Our school is situated in the scenic upper Tame Valley, surrounded by Pennine moor land which can provide a valuable learning environment as well as an excellent outdoor recreation amenity.
Our latest OFSTED inspection late in 2013 stated the school was ‘Good’. We are committed to raising standards for all groups and we constantly challenge all learners, including teachers, to aim higher.
There are currently 213 children on the school roll and 23 of these children are in the school’s nursery class. Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all children, and expects our staff and volunteers to share this commitment. As a community of learners we are self-disciplined, hard-working and value ourselves and others.
