A message from our Headteacher
Welcome to our school website and thank you for taking the time to visit it. We would be delighted to show you around our school so that you can see for yourself what a fun, caring and creative learning environment we have here and experience first-hand the buzz of learning at Whytemead First School.
We are a lively and exciting school that currently has 3 Reception classes, 3 Year 1 classes , 2 year 2 classes and 2 Year 3 classes, taking children from 4-8 years old.
Although we have recently expanded, we are keen to keep our small school atmosphere and we put the needs of each and everyone of our pupils uppermost in all our thinking. We aim to harness the desire for learning that children are born with and provide them with stimulating and motivating learning experiences both inside and outside the classroom throughout their time at Whytemead.
Our school vision is..
Learning at our school is founded on four principles that form the 4 branches of our Whytemead Tree:- Achievement, Creativity, Healthy Living and Citizenship.
We spent a long time making our tree and every child’s handprint makes up the leaves of the tree
From these four principles come our vision for the qualities and attributes that we hope will characterise the children who leave us at the age of 8, qualities that we believe will sustain them and provide a firm foundation for them to be successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens in an ever-changing and exciting future.
I look forward to meeting you soon!
