Welcome from Annie Hookway, headteacher:
On behalf of the staff and governors, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Wetheringsett Church of England V.C. Primary School’s website.
We are proud of the family feel our small, village primary school has. We are a caring school where children look after each other and staff know each child very well. We currently have around 50 children on roll in three classes.
We work hard to ensure our children achieve consistently high standards but as a church school, we also value the wider skills and values pupils will need to be happy and successful in life, hence our strap-line ‘Building skills for life’. Our wider ethos, which makes us distinctive as a school and is how we go about building these "skills for life", is reflected in our ethos statement: "We value and cherish each child, supporting all to be successful.Our Christian values underpin everything we do."
As a church school, our Christian values form the basis of our ethos and relationships with each other. We aim to work closely with each child and their family so that all the children will feel as safe and happy at school as they do at home. The views of parents are important to us and we welcome feedback from parents. Parents of children at the school can complete the Ofsted Parent View survey by clicking the image below.
What our parents say about the school:
"The school has returned my confidence in the education system. Fantastic awareness of children's needs and dedication to ensure that every child succeeds."
"We feel very lucky that our children can go to Wetheringsett Primary. I feel that we are giving them the best school start. The school provides them with every learning skill."
"We have been really impressed with the whole school curriculum activities."
"You and your team have changed the experience of primary school from an endured, stressful and at times unhappy experience to one where are children are happy, confident and progressing educationally beyond what we had been told was possible for them as individuals."
