Hello and a great big welcome to our Atlas Community Primary School website. Atlas is a one form entry primary school in Manningham, west Bradford. Atlas is a very happy, safe and friendly school and we are extremely proud of our children and the success they make. As we are a one form entry primary it means we get to know our children and families extremely well and can offer really personalised learning opportunities for all.
All of our staff are highly skilled and go, “the extra mile” in making sure that your child’s experience in school is productive and enjoyable. Our academic standards have improved vastly over the last several years. I am available to speak to parents and carers and welcome your comments and suggestions. Please make an appointment to see me if you need to.
Ofsted visited us in April 2016 and stated the following: “You, and the leadership team, have moved the school forward since the previous inspection. This is because you have created and maintained a culture of high expectations and equality of opportunity for all. You have made sure that the outcomes of pupils continue to be good through rigorous monitoring of the quality of teaching and pupils’ learning; because of this, pupils are well prepared for secondary school. The school is a calm and purposeful place. Pupils, staff and parents show a strong sense of pride in the school. Pupils enjoy school, they settle to their work promptly and are eager to learn. Pupils are keen to take on the responsibilities the school offers them.” (Ofsted April 2016).
Our aim is to provide the children in our care with the best possible start in life, Ofsted agreed with us and I know you won’t be disappointed either. We are always more than happy to show prospective families around school so please get in touch.

We currently have some spaces in our Nursery class for 3 and 4 year old children. We offer this as a morning or afternoon session, a combination of both and also the opportunity to purchase additional hours at a very good rate. Please ring for more information 01274495190.
Our Vision- Ethos and Values
We want to be an outstanding school and equip children with the skills to enable them to become successful members of the community and beyond.
Values we hold close to our heart at Atlas:
Values are things we believe in that help us to make a decision about how to behave. They are a set of tools we can carry with us all our lives. To feel valued is a special thing and here at Atlas we want everyone to experience it and remember it forever.
We provide a learning environment that opens up the world and challenges children beyond their thinking.
