Head Teacher’s Welcome

We are very proud of our school for so many reasons. We are proud of the children’s achievements, of their positive attitudes towards learning and behaviour, the manner in which they look after each other and the way they come into school each day smiling. We are proud of our relationships with our children’s families and with the community of Norris Green & surrounding areas.
At Monksdown we are committed to providing inspirational and innovative teaching and the highest quality learning experiences for all our pupils.

Head Teacher’s Welcome

On behalf of everyone at Monksdown Primary School may I offer a warm welcome to you as prospective parents and pupils of our school.

Monksdown is a Community Primary School for girls and boys aged between 3-11 years; maintained by the City of Liverpool Education Authority.

Monksdown is at the heart of the Norris Green community and enjoys an excellent reputation.  Our pupils are renowned throughout the city for their courteous manners and the way they conduct themselves in public.  They are enthusiastic, keen to learn and give of their best at all times.  It is our job, as their teachers, to see that their hopes and aspirations are fulfilled.

“We are happy about Monksdown Primary School.  All teachers are very supportive, kind and concerned about every pupil’s progress”.  “The pupils spoke with understanding about their school values of respect, resilience, resourcefulness and responsibility”.  “They were also able to explain how these values help to promote equality and diversity”. Ofsted – March 2018

 At Monksdown we strive to create and establish a safe, happy and secure environment. We aim to build strong and lasting relationships with parents so that our close partnership is seen as the way forward at all times.

Parents should always feel able to contact the school at any time should any queries or issues arise.

We look forward to a long and successful partnership.

Yours sincerely

Mrs J. Price


School Ethos

Our vision is to develop confident young people who have compassion and an understanding for others. Our pupils aim to be Respectful, Resourceful, Resilient and Responsible.

We provide a happy, safe and caring environment that is stimulating, challenging, inclusive and enjoyable.  We will achieve this by working closely in partnership with parents and the community in a relationship that puts the child first at all times.
