Willaston Church of England Primary School

Our Community

 

Church

School enjoys being part of the local community, and in this respect participates in many activities, including fund raising for a varied range of charities. In many instances, charities have been linked to members of the school community who have been helped by these organisations. In addition to fund raising, pupils contribute in many other ways to community life. There are many instances where the school and local community come together. Everyone in school enjoys being a part of community life, and it is an involvement that benefits everyone. We are a Church of England School and have very close links with Christ Church, Willaston, and Reverend Stephen Bazely.

We have set up our very own Willaston CE Primary School Weather Station! This is a great opportunity for children to engage in real life activities/opportunities such as data handling in computing and maths as well as establishing links to many other areas of the curriculum (geography, English, outdoor learning etc…). It also really develops children’s vocabulary in geography; using language such as dew point and solar radiation. You will also be able to see other local weather stations and can make links to weather locally, nationally or internationally!

We set up Rotakids with The Rotary Club of Willaston and South Wirral
