Willaston CE Primary School provides quality education for infant and junior children from age 4 to 11 years. The school was originally opened in September, 1932, we currently have 200 pupils on roll.
We have seven single year classes and seven teaching assistants who also work effectively alongside the class teacher to support all children’s learning. In addition we have a school learning mentor who provides additional support for children and their parents.
We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum which gives varied opportunities to develop a wide range of personal skills, knowledge and understanding through a programme of work structured to match children’s abilities and aptitudes.
Our school is determined to provide children with the tools to enable them to embrace the technology available in our ever changing world. iPads, iPods, digital cameras and laptops are readily available in every class.
The curriculum is delivered through the International Primary Curriculum which is a themed approach, promoting excitement and enthusiasm for learning. Recently, our Year 5 children studied Shakespeare and performed Hamlet at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester. Our Year 6 Maths team recently won the Neston and Ellesmere Port Schools’ Maths Event hosted by Chester University. Our Year 1 children this term have been learning the ukulele with a musician from a local High School.
We value all areas of the curriculum and aim to provide children with high quality learning experiences which include outdoor learning. All children at Willaston CE Primary School experience Forest School education on a fortnightly basis, view our photographs and details on the web site, to give you a flavour of this experience.
