Crompton Primary School
Longfield Road, Shaw, OL2 7HD, UK Oldham

Crompton Primary School opened in September 2001 as a result of an amalgamation between New Barn Nursery and Infant School and New Barn Junior School. Extensive alterations to the existing infant building were carried out during 2001/2002 enabling a new, fit for purpose building that opened in February 2003. Our Reception classroom was extended and re-furbished in the autumn of 2005.

In addition to the normal classroom areas, the school has a purpose built computer suite and changing rooms, which are used by the juniors for P.E. and Games. The school has extensive fields and playgrounds surrounded by open countryside.


The majority of children who attend Crompton Primary are placed into age group classes that contain a full range of abilities and as far as possible, a balance of boys and girls.

Within the classroom, children are taught in a variety of different ways. They are taught in whole classes, smaller groups and individually.

For most of the time the class is taught by the class teacher, but there are periods when team teaching, group teaching and specialist teaching takes place. There are also arrangements made for groups of children to work with non-teaching assistants and governor or parent helpers, where the work has been planned by the class teacher. Classes will also receive support from the multicultural service.

The school is divided into 7 classes plus Nursery, catering for the age ranges. On average there are 30 children in each class.


Work within classes is based on a child’s own ability. The school is committed to providing high quality education through a broad and balanced curriculum. We believe in high academic, moral and social standards.

All the children follow the requirements of the National Curriculum.


We are fortunate to have staff who are willing to give of their free time to ensure that opportunities are provided for extra-curricular activities. Children are encouraged to take part in the activities on offer. They help to broaden your child’s learning and enable them to meet with teachers in a more relaxed setting. Sports clubs involve children competing against other schools. Musical groups perform for audiences. Practices are held in the lunch hour or after school.
