School Information

Wheatley Hill Primary School will endeavor to prepare children for a successful and satisfying life in the twenty first century. We will seek to ensure that within the school, both adults and children will learn together and that each individual will reach their full potential. We believe that for learning to be successful children must merge what they learn within the classroom with real life experiences and rich learning opportunities outside of the classroom. Life is the best teacher.  "Right to develop our talents and abilities." Article 29.  In order to live up to the above, we aim to:

  • Create a friendly, open, caring and honest environment where the children feel confident, valued and motivated to learn.

  • To continually improve the quality of teaching and learning and offer approaches and resources that promote inclusion and extend valuable learning experiences.

  • Offer a high quality curriculum, differentiated to meet the needs of all our pupils, demonstrating a commitment to equality of opportunity for all.

  • Ensure fair and appropriate treatment for everyone.

  • Encourage children to take responsibility for their own actions to help them become contributing citizens of a well-ordered society. 

  • To provide the highest possible standard of education through a broad, balanced and enjoyable curriculum appropriate to each individual.

  • Create an environment where children feel valued and in which they can develop a positive self-image.

  • Encourage not only academic values, but also those pertaining to cultural and moral issues.

  • Provide a challenging, engaging curriculum offering a broad range of learning opportunities within and outside of the classroom.

  • Develop resilience and risk taking, allowing children and staff to experience success and failure.

  • Teach children to think about themselves and others, both inside and outside of the school community.

  • Prepare children to become active members of their community and develop an appreciation of other cultures. Celebrating the diversity which our pupils and their families bring to school life and the diversity around us in our region, country and world!
