The Federation of Longhorsley First and Whalton Church of England  Primary Schools:


Welcome from the Chair of Governors:

The Governors are delighted to welcome you and your child to our School. The school seeks to promote a Christian ethos in which children are challenged and encouraged to think through their own values and beliefs. We pride ourselves on the way that we embrace all faiths.

We have many achievements to be proud of, including our last outstanding Ofsted report, four years involvement with Creative Partnerships and Artsmark Gold. Our federation with Longhorsley makes our school very special and enhances the opportunities we offer. We pride ourselves on maintaining these high standards as confirmed by an interim assessment from Ofsted in July 2010.

All members of the Governing Body are local people who take a keen interest in every aspect of the life of the School. We work with the staff to ensure that all the resources of the School are best used to promote every aspect of each child’s spiritual, educational and physical development.

We offer your child our very best wishes for a happy and fulfilling time at Whalton School.
