We will always try our best to keep school open in the event of snow or other severe weather.  If we cannot open due to the severity of the conditions, we will notify you by text. If you do not receive a text, but you are still unsure:

  • check the school website - a message will appear on the opening page
  • ring school to check the answerphone message on 0161 921 1690
  • check the city council closure website
  • Listen to Key 103, Capital Radio or BBC Radio Manchester

Welcome to Light Oaks Junior school! We hope you will find what you are looking for on our website; enjoy looking around and please let us know what you think.  This year, we are working towards becoming an Emotionally Friendly School.  This means we are focusing a lot of our attention on our children's emotional wellbeing and helping them to stay healthy both physically and mentally.  We recognise that a child needs to develop good emotional wellbeing in order to have a successful and rewarding life as an adult. We are also focusing on making sure the teaching and learning in every classroom is the best it can be.  We have written a Teaching and Learning Policy which sets out the principles we all follow in the classroom and beyond.  The policy can be found below and includes our values and aims as a school:
