Finding your child requires extra support can be very worrying. The school is here to both support your child and work with you and your child so that your child can make the best progress they are capable of. We aim to include both your child and you in decision making and target setting. We hope this is done in a format that enables your child to succeed and build self esteem as well as keeping you informed about your childs progress thus far and their next steps. If you feel this is not the case please do approach your child’s class teacher, the SENCo or the Head teacher who will be happy to work in partnership to this end.
We can also inform and signpost you to other help that may be available. These support pages detail some useful organisations and groups both on a local and national level.
Please do feel free to approach the Headteacher, the SENCo or your child’s class teacher if you would like some information, advice or wish to share or discuss any information.

OFSTED 2018: This is a good school.
Following our two day inspection (May 22nd-23rd 2018) we are ecstatic to announce that OFSTED graded our school ‘good’ in every area possible! Hooray! With front page quotes such as ‘pupils have positive attitudes to learning’, ‘pupils behave well’, ‘Children receive a good start to their education…’, ‘pupils read fluently, with enthusiasm and enjoyment’ and ‘(Children) say they feel safe and enjoy school’, we are all immensely proud of the children’s hard work and achievements.
It is great that the report acknowledges our governors in their support of the school, our hardworking staff for their commitment to education, our parents for their approval (especially those who completed ParentView when requested) and last but not least our amazing children for being ‘polite, courteous and respectful’ whilst working with ‘enthusiasm and enjoyment!’
A standing ovation with ticker tape falling and balloons rising to all!
At Whitchurch Primary School we are constantly striving to make our school even better. By completing this survey you can aid us in this. We will use the information to continue with the good practise within the school, and working on areas you feel need improving.
