On behalf of the Pupils, Staff and Governors I would like to welcome you to Whitefield Community Primary School.
Whitefield Primary School sits in the heart of community and has approximately 180 pupils on role. We are a small, caring and family orientated school which strives to offer the very highest standards in education. The school serves a richly diverse community which we believe not only makes our school unique to others but also enables us to enrich the lives of the children that attend.
Our door is always open and we are always willing to accommodate visitors to our school. The adults at the school ensure that the school provides a caring, carefully structured learning environment which allow our children to flourish. We offer the very highest standards in education while also ensuring that our children develop a sense of adventure and wonder.
We are enormously proud of our Forest School, which allows our children to develop their learning outside of the classroom. We believe that this is a fundamental part of supporting children in developing them as resilient, confident, independent and creative learners. An integral part of our school is our relationship with parents. We work closely together to ensure that any concerns are taken seriously and dealt with swiftly. We operate an open door policy and parents are encouraged to raise any concerns or worries at a convenient mutual time.
I am extremely honoured to be the Headteacher of this fantastic school. Why? Because I am fortunate enough to come to work each day with fantastically talented children, hardworking staff and with supportive governors and parents. You will find lots of useful information about the school on this website, which we hope will give you a feel of our fabulous school.
Mr M Van Hecke
