Whalton Church of England Primary School is positioned next to the beautiful 13th century Church of St Mary Magdalene, where the children lead services in Harvest, Remembrance, Christmas, Easter and Leaving. We also have our monthly Family Church Services here, held on the last Friday of every month.
Our school community demonstrates five ‘Core Values for Life’. These are:
Friendship, Forgiveness, Honesty, Hope and Trust
All of these values are bound together by ‘LOVE’.
Extract from National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools Report March 2018
“Pupils know that they are loved and cared for, and that, in the words of the school motto, the school ‘wants me to be the best I can be’. This love and care result in ‘behaviour for learning’ which impacts strongly on pupils’ academic development. Standards of progress and attainment are consistently high.”
