A message from our Headteacher

Welcome to Whittlefield Primary School.

At Whittlefield School we strive to provide the best possible education for the children in our care recognising their unique gifts and personalities and seeking to promote excellence in both behaviour and learning.

Learning is the principle reason for Whittlefield Primary School’s existence; it is at the heart of everything we do. It is an activity which involves and is participated in by everyone. At our school we believe learning is only part of the development and therefore we are committed to the achievements of the whole child.

Our Vision Statement is ‘Dream Believe Achieve’

We aim for all the children and staff to achieve in a caring and safe environment by inspiring them to have dreams for themselves and others; supporting them to believe in themselves and others; and ultimately by helping them achieve and helping others to achieve.

We see ourselves as a community in which we are all valued equally as individuals. We respect and empathise with each other and with all members of society. We value friendship, compassion and honesty. We strive constantly for our children to enjoy school, have fun and to be enthusiastic lifelong learners. We believe in an active curriculum that engages and motivates the children, promotes a healthy lifestyle and the need to look after the environment. We aim to prepare our children with the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding they will need to thrive academically but we also focus on preparing them to have the necessary life skills, knowledge and understanding they will need to be equipped for the world they will face in the future to enable them to contribute positively to society – whatever that future may be!

At Whittlefield Primary School we value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all pupils and families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate these. We find this approach to be enriching for all parties as it teaches tolerance and respect for the differences in our community and the wider world. Underpinning all of this are a range of curriculum topics which have strong links to Britain’s position in the world.

We hope you find the information on our website helpful and that it gives you a taste of our wonderful school and children. Our website is continually updated and we hope that it will become a valuable source of information for parents, governors, children and many other visitors.

We are very proud of our school and are always happy to welcome visitors. We look forward to meeting you soon.

 

Best wishes,

Helen Kershaw
