Dear parents and guardians,
We have had some parents contact us regarding their children’s use of ‘Whatsapp’. Please can we remind parents that this application is designed to be used by children aged 16+. Please take some time to familiarise yourself with the information attached. We would also suggest that you share this information with your children if they are using this app.

Dear Parents and Carers,
It is with very mixed feelings that I am writing to you regarding my early retirement from Whitley Abbey Primary School. Over my time at Whitley I have written hundreds of letters to parents but this is definitely the most difficult.
We are pleased to share this short video explaining more about your child starting in Reception with us in September 2021.
We are delighted to share with you a short film showcasing our wonderful Nursery provision and what we can offer for you and your child.
Wearing of Face Coverings on School – Just a reminder to parents /carers to please wear face coverings when dropping off or collecting children from school. Your co-operation would be greatly appreciated.
We have a committed governing body who take an active role in leading our school forward and a dedicated team of teachers, teaching assistants and a learning mentor working harmoniously to organise wonderful lessons, experiences and events that engage and develop our pupils and their families. We treat everyone as an individual, with the unique potential to learn, grow and achieve their best within our supportive and caring environment.
Our school is fortunate to have ‘Abbey Oaks’, our out-of-school club, which offers wraparound care for children from 7.45 a.m until 6 p.m.
Come and Join Us
At Whitley Abbey Primary School we value the partnership with home and wholeheartedly invite you to the wide range of open events, parents evenings, workshops and courses so that you can fully participate in your child’s education. Please take a little time each week to look at our school calendar and newsletters to see how and when you can join in with us.
