Dear Parents and friends of Armitage,
Welcome to Armitage CE Primary School's website.
Armitage CE Primary School is a successful primary school situated roughly 2 miles from the centre of Manchester. It serves a rich and diverse community. At its heart is the community that the school serves.
Armitage CE Primary School is a warm, welcoming school which is committed to the welfare and pastoral care of its children. The staff aim to bring out the best in each child and have high expectations of achievement and behaviour. We are always looking at ways to provide a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular activities to prepare our young people for life.
Armitage CE Primary School provides the ideal setting for children to develop as individuals, to grow in confidence and to be responsible members of the school, its community and the larger community of Manchester and beyond.
We trust that your child will feel secure in the caring environment which we endeavour, at all times, to create. We also hope that the partnership between the family at home and at school will provide a strong foundation for the children to grow and develop to their full potential.
Hopefully, the website will have given you a flavour of our school - please contact the school if you would like any further information.
