We are a 'Good' school January 2020

Welcome to Wenhaston Primary School

I welcome you and your children to Wenhaston Primary School. We are a small, friendly and successful school, committed to the highest possible standards.

We take pride in our values and heritage that enable our children to develop a deep love of learning, a spirit of enquiry and a determination to succeed.  The values promoted at Wenhaston Primary School ensure that children are well prepared for life. This includes respect for a wide range of religious values, cultural traditions and different ways of life in modern Britain. Wenhaston Primary School uses these values to judge everything that we do, and we make our values, ethos and culture clear in all aspects of our work. The school votes in one of our eight values to permeate through that half term's social, moral, spiritual and cultural work. 

Our school community will be 

  • Inclusive – everyone (children, staff, parents, governors) are important
  • Caring – we will make time for people, and they will feel safe to express ideas and take risks
  • Respectful – everyone’s needs, talents and viewpoints will be considered
  • Enabling – everyone deserves the best possible conditions to learn and to teach
  • Outward-looking – we will work in partnership with other schools and groups
  • Aware of everyone’s need to be and feel safe.

Every member of staff wants to do all that is best for your children, and should you have any worries, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our pupils' happiness is considered essential so that they make the most of the high quality education and opportunities provided and lay secure foundations for success and continued learning in their lives.

Our school is set in a beautiful area and is proud of its links with the local and wider community.  We believe that between school, governors, community and you the parents, there is a partnership working together to give your children the best possible start to their school life.


Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or  would like to visit. We also encourage existing parents to leave feedback about our school on Ofsted's Parentview website by clicking on the following link:
