Dear Parents and Carers,
As the Headteacher of Whitley Abbey Primary School, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website. Our aim is to share with you the many achievements and successes of our enthusiastic and hard-working children, as well as to provide you with a wide range of useful information that enables you to share in the life and learning of the school.
We believe that Whitley Abbey Primary School is truly special. As our Mission Statement says ‘Our school is a place where everyone, including our parents, is encouraged to learn and grow together’. 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.
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.
Our school is fortunate to have ‘Abbey Oaks’, our out-of-school club, which offers wraparound care for children from 7.45a.m until 6 p.m. We have ‘Supertots’ to welcome in the very youngest members of our community and ‘Acorns’ for our pre-school children. These groups meet weekly in term-time to enjoy a range of play-based learning experiences.
I hope that this website gives you a flavour of our happy, high achieving school, but I warmly invite you to come and see for yourself. You can make an appointment by emailing me at [email protected]. I will be delighted to give you a tour and talk with you about the needs of your child.
