On behalf of all at our school I would like to welcome you to our school website and invite you to find out all about the exciting things that go on here by exploring. We also have a Facebook page shared with our Parents' Association where you can follow current events.
Wilbarston CE Primary School is a happy and caring school where we challenge every child to reach their full potential. Our aim is for children to leave us with the attributes, skills and knowledge required for their next stage of learning and to have acquired those whilst making happy memories. This aim comes from our Christian foundation and links to John 10:10 "Jesus said, I have come that you should have life, life in all its fullness." We endeavour to provide every child with the best start in their learning and to "learn with fun, faith, care and respect".
We are located between Corby and Market Harborough serving the Welland Valley and Desborough areas. Whilst we are traditional in style for example having a house system for pupils to belong to and in our values (shared Christian and British values of caring for others, respect and fairness); we are also innovative so that we prepare our pupils for the world they will be working in and contributing to.
Our academic standards are good because children enjoy an interesting and varied curriculum, which children help us to develop and improve. We work in partnership with our families. On parents evenings children attend to talk with parents and staff about how their learning journey is going and what they are doing to meet their end of year targets. Our mentoring approach ensures that pupils understand that they are responsible for their own learning and progress.
As you will see from our clubs section, we have many extra curricular clubs for a small school - staff go the extra mile for our children by running clubs themselves in addition to the sporting companies we buy in. We ask each year what the children want and try to meet it (e.g. jewellery club, art club, boxing in our PE club, choir).
Enjoy having a browse on our site, look at our gallery of photos of events and our class pages to find out what has been happening lately.
Finally, if you are interested in our school please come and have a look around and meet us. You will be assured of a warm welcome.
