Our School

Whalton Church of England Aided Primary School is a happy, caring school where all children are nurtured and encouraged to reach their full potential through our core values. As a Church of England school the Christian ethos is central to the life of the school community. 

We are proud to offer a team of highly skilled and caring staff who provide a rich and exciting curriculum for our children.

Extract from National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican Schools Report:

"All members of the community, and not least the pupils, articulate with conviction the school’s values and their impact... 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".

OFSTED judges Whalton to be an outstanding school:

‘Whalton is an outstanding school. To echo the remarks of one parent ‘it is a school of the highest calibre’.

‘The caring Christian ethos of the school is central to its determination to provide the best education it can. The school has high aspirations for all its pupils. The quality of the teaching and the curriculum are outstanding.'

We have many achievements to be proud of including Artsmark gold, Active mark, HealthySchools and Investors in People. Our successful Federation with Longhorsley First School  enhances our school for children, staff and governors.

I would be delighted to show you around school and discuss what Whalton can offer your family.

Please contact us by phone or email if you would like to arrange a visit or receive our school brochure.

Best wishes
