Message from the Headteacher

Welcome to Whitchurch Combined School.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Whitchurch Combined School website. Our vision is that every child attending our school will have the opportunity to develop their full academic and personal potential in a caring and stimulating environment - encapsulated in our mission statement: Together we Aspire and Achieve.

 

The safety and well being or our pupils is paramount. Safeguarding training is undertaken by all staff; e-safety training is offered to parents; through assemblies and lessons children learn how to keep themselves safe. Our Deputy is a trainer of the Prevent agenda for staff and governors.

 

We pride ourselves in providing an excellent, exciting, broad and balanced curriculum and ensuring high standards in the core subjects of Reading, Writing and Maths. In our relentless drive for excellence, our aim is that all pupils should develop as excellent learners, have excellent social and emotional skills and fulfil their potential.

 

Our pupils have positive attitudes to learning, high standards of behaviour and a pride in their school. This is nurtured by the supportive parents, carers and governors, inspiring and skilled teachers and excellent support staff.

 

We are extremely proud of the varied opportunities that are offered to our pupils across the curriculum and as extra-curricular activities. They have further opportunities to learn through a wide range of educational visits and events, including residential trips in Year 5 and Year 6. There is a shared drive to constantly review, improve and enrich our curriculum to ensure learning is relevant, exciting and engaging for all our pupils.

 

There is so much more to Whitchurch Combined School than academic, sporting or musical success and we would be pleased to welcome you to our school to experience our exciting, vibrant and happy environment for yourself.

 

Miss Rachel Pickup
