Welcome

to Whinstone Primary!

Creative Computing

New technologies play an increasing role in all of our lives.  We use our two computer suites, a set of iPads, coding resources and green screen technology to teach computing and also enrich other areas of the curriculum. We have a consistent focus on online safety and keep up to date from our in-house CEOP accredited trainer (Child Exploitation and Online Protection).

Kidsafe

We are proud to be a Kidsafe registered school. The Kidsafe mission is to ‘protect, educate and empower children without shattering their innocence. Our courses are uniquely designed to help children take an active role in deciding how they themselves can recognise and protect themselves from all forms of abuse.’

School Council

Our school council meet twice a month. It is a great opportunity to share exciting ideas for activities or events that children would like to take place as well as giving pupils a voice and empowering them to shape life in Whinstone Primary.

Sporting Stars

We are very proud of all of our sporting achievements at Whinstone. Our PE specialist, Miss Stansmore is committed to inspiring every child to have fun and achieve.

A very warm welcome to our school!

Children get one chance with their education and at Whinstone we want this to be the best. There is a driving determination to ensure that pupils reach their full potential by providing a happy, caring, stimulating and creative environment.

We see the education of our children as a partnership between home and school. By working together we hope to give children the chance to develop their talents in an atmosphere which fosters tolerance, independence, good behaviour and, above all, a positive attitude towards learning and a drive for excellence with high achievement.

Whinstone became part of ‘Vision Academy Learning Trust’ in December 2017. To learn more about the Trust, please click here.

We have a lot to be proud about at Whinstone. Our staff are a committed, forward looking, energetic team who work relentlessly to ensure ours is a highly effective school where all children receive the best education possible.

Over recent years, Whinstone has seen some exciting and dramatic changes to the building. A large part of our existing building has been revamped and developed into more spacious classrooms, providing a more attractive environment for learning. This provided the school with six new classrooms, an invaluable extra school Hall and an exciting multimedia ICT suite.

Having read about our school, may I warmly invite you to contact us by email, phone or visit to see us in action. Our staff will be pleased to answer any further questions you may have and our children will be delighted to show you around!
