Community School Status


In 1994 Lower Kersal Primary School was the first of Salford’s primary schools to be awarded community school status in recognition of our activities which bring the school and its community together.


At Lower Kersal Primary School we actively seek to engage our pupils families and local residents in the life and future of the school. It is hoped that this blog will provide a further way for both students, families and members of our school’s wider community to engage with us.
