Our children are remarkable young people. We want them to have energy and enthusiasm for all that life has to offer; to live as responsible citizens and to succeed academically in our rapidly changing society. We wish to develop their unique talents and aspirations and to give them our fullest support and guidance. As a Church of England school we uphold Christian values and believe in promoting the rights of all. We want all of our children to enjoy learning and strive to be the very best that they can be in all that they do.
A combination of “dreaming big”, providing children with a broad and rich curriculum and having dedicated teachers is at the heart of why the pupils at Wilby Primary School consistently achieve such high levels in attainment and progress. As a result of the 'positive learning environment...and carefully tailored individualised programmes' which we provide, 'all make excellent progress from their starting points'. Our children 'engage and strive to do their best. Work is of a high standard and pupils demonstrate a fascination for learning and pride in their work.' (SIAMs inspection 2018)
We are a Pre-school, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 Church of England Primary School which serves children from a wide catchment area. Ours is a happy school where every child matters. Our pupils benefit from the family atmosphere created within the school environment which gives them confidence in caring for and being cared for by others. We 'allow all pupils to excel within a community that feels like a family.'(Ofsted December 2018) Our staff are inspiring, highly dedicated and enthusiastic and our governors supportive yet challenging. These factors, combined with the committed involvement of our parents, helps to ensure that each child achieves their maximum potential. All pupils in the Pre-School (EYFS)'make strong progress from their starting points.'(Ofsted December 2018)
This website seeks to introduce you to our school, outline some of the many opportunities it offers and to demonstrate our aim to provide an outstanding education for every child. However, there can be no replacement for first hand experience and we welcome visitors. We invite you to join us to come and see learning in action. Please contact the school office to arrange a visit.
We look forward to meeting you in the near future.
Mrs Roisin Wiseman | Headteacher
