Welcome to Bishop Wilton CE Primary School. We are a lively, friendly and happy school that is valued and well supported by our community. We have high expectations of our children and we are very proud of their achievements. Bishop Wilton School is a Christian school and the education we provide is based on Christian values.

The children and adults in the school work in a caring environment based on mutual respect and the nurturing of a positive self image. We develop the children through encouragement and praise whilst providing clear boundaries of what is and is not acceptable behaviour.

Most of our children live close to the school, although some come from further a-field, choosing our school because of our small classes and excellent reputation. Our average class size is currently seventeen. Our school is currently experiencing a period of growth and development. We have welcomed a number of new pupils to school this year and we are delighted that our growing popularity is predicted to continue. We now have 42 pupils full time and 9 part time in the Nursery.

We hope you enjoy your visit and that you'll get to know us well. Our site is updated regularly, so please come back and visit us often. Click on the tabs at the top of the page and have fun!


Art Club

This term Mrs Clark has been leading after school Art Club every Monday. We have had the opportunity to paint Ancient Greek creatures and make Grecian Urns.

We love art and achieve highly in it at Bishop Wilton! Almost all the class choose to stay for art club. Some of us have won prizes for our work previously at the Bishop Wilton Show.

Chess Club

Tuesday lunchtime is chess club!
Any of our pupils can join and play friendly games of chess. The club is also open to beginners. Alex looks after chess club and is always ready to help others. It is a fun way to get to know older and younger children and it is very popular. Mrs Halley helps out if needed.

Sports Club

After school sports club is great fun. Mr Pennington usually leads this club. So far we have played football, tag rugby and cricket (bowling skills). In the coming weeks we will also try, gymnastics, dance, netball and hockey among lots of other sports. We enjoy sports club very much and can stay until 4.30pm!

Book Club

Children under 7 can join the book club. This is a lunchtime club where children can share a story and do book related activities. It is organised and run by the junior children, who plan the activities and lead the sessions. Mrs Halley is always present at the sessions to help out if required, but so far her help has not been necessary!

French Club

After school French club is organised and run by Emmanuelle Dowsett. Children who stay to French pay for the sessions.
French club is great fun. Emmanuelle is a native French speaker and organises games, songs and fun activities to inspire the children in their conversational skills. All children from reception class upwards can join if they want to. The session finishes at 4.30pm.


  • The Early Years Unit is an integral part of the school, housed in a new extension attached to the school. .
  • Until the unit was built in April 2004 the Reception children were taught alongside the Year One's and Year Two's in the Key Stage 1 classroom.
  • The unit has now enabled the children to follow the Foundation Early Learning Goals in a setting where the areas of learning can be planned to meet their specific needs.

Parents' Information




We the Governor's and staff at Bishop Wilton Church of England Primary School will continue to develop the school as a happy and efficient place in which children can learn. Within the framework of the National Curriculum we will endeavour to provide an interesting and stimulating curriculum suited to the children's age and aptitude.

We will maintain what we believe to be a special atmosphere at Bishop Wilton School so that it continues to be a place where tolerance, and appreciation of the individual exists.

Quality and EXCELLENCE

To offer all our children a broad and balanced curriculum and to strive for excellence in all that we do with and for the children.


To foster always good, caring relationships based on sound values within the school, village and the wider community.


To make the partnership, which already exists, between home, school and village continue to flourish so that the children reach their full potential within their own community and in the world in which they live.


To be a Christian community where the values of our Christian faith are an integral part of life and to contribute to the development of the faith of each individual in the school.


The school is a Church of England voluntary controlled co-educational primary day school, with a Foundation Unit.

Most of the formal teaching takes place in small groups or on an individual basis. The system is very flexible and children are encouraged to progress at their own rate.

We have a firm belief that, if children are to learn to respect their environment they should be surrounded by a rich and varied school environment which demonstrates a respect for the work of the child and which expects them to respect the efforts of others. Displays of interesting objects, living things and children’s work are presented whenever possible. Our team of students, Caretaker, Lunch Supervisors, Teaching Assistant and Secretary also assist with this, making a contribution to the overall appearance and orderliness of the school.

Classes follow the whole school approach, introducing concepts and skills as the children progress and develop through the school. The National Curriculum Foundation Subjects are included in project work or receive individual attention, as with Music, Religious Education, Physical Education and Swimming.

In order to consolidate learning and give structure to Mathematics, the Heinemann Mathematics for Key Stage One and Two, are used and related to the programmes of study in the National Curriculum. We also follow the National Numeracy Strategy.

Reading is introduced using several integrated reading schemes, concerning both visual memory skills and phonic work. Pupils are introduced to sounds through ‘Jolly Phonics’. Children are encouraged to develop a keen interest in books and a good choice of reading material is offered to the early independent reader. Much time is devoted to encouraging creative writing, from the emergent writing of the reception children, to independent recording and story writing in later years. We refer to the guidance of the National Literacy Strategy.

Reading nightly at home is encouraged, as is the reinforcement of tables and spelling.

Children are encouraged to participate in discussion and express their ideas, gaining a sense of value in their own and others’ contributions. Our aim is to provide a well balanced and stimulating approach where the foundations of learning are established with care for the individual child and the special needs they present.

On occasions children may be given homework, particularly in English and Mathematics, especially in the Juniors.

Project work is planned to cover the requirements of the National Curriculum.

Parents are always welcomed to visit and assist in activities. They are also welcome to help as escorts on school trips.

Knowledge and interest in the environment are further extended through educational visits. When possible and relevant, visitors are invited to the school to contribute to the children’s experience.

We invite parents into school during school hours to half-termly sharing assemblies presented by the children. This allows parents to see for themselves the work the children are doing and be involved in school life.
