School Details

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 212 pupils on roll.

We have seven single year classes and teaching assistants who also work effectively alongside the class teachers 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.

The curriculum is delivered through a themed approach, promoting excitement and enthusiasm for learning. Our Year 2 children work with a singing teacher, our Year 3 children enjoy a term of Samba Drumming, our Year 4 children learn to play the Ukulele. Our Year 5 children each learn a brass instrument and study Shakespeare annually culminating in a performance at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester. Children in all year groups participate every year in a wide range of enrichment events from across the curriculum hosted by Chester University, Neston High School and other local providers. All children from years 3 - 6 are currently learning Spanish. PE is delivered to all classes by a fully qualified PE teacher from S4YC. Children in years 3-6 take part in swimming lessons at Neston Recreation Centre. We have a specialist Art Teacher who works with a number of classes in school.

We value all areas of the curriculum and aim to provide children with the highest 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.

Safeguarding and E-Safety



Operation Encompass enables us to receive important information regarding pupils in school who have been involved in or  witnessed a domestic incident. This knowledge, given to schools through Operation Encompass, allows the provision of immediate early intervention through ‘overt' or 'silent support’, depending upon the needs and wishes of the child. We believe that this kind of early intervention is every child’s right. Please click on the link or logo for more information.

Safeguard and keep your child safe on-line. 

Parent Info is a collaboration between Parent Zone, which has been providing information and support to parents for a decade, and CEOP, the Child Exploitation and Online Protection command of the National Crime Agency.
