Our Mission Statement

Willingham Primary School aims to provide high quality teaching and learning, delivering a curriculum for the development of the whole child in a safe, secure, happy, caring and stimulating environment.

Ethos & Values Statement

Willingham Primary School serves its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context and understanding of shared values e.g. honesty, respect, openness, commitment and cooperation. The school encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of these values through the experience it offers its pupils.

Willingham Primary School aims to:
  • Create an interesting and stimulating environment which reflects our values and promotes a sense of community as well as an individual sense of self worth;
  • Develop a community of life-long learners where access to knowledge is a right and a recognised achievement;
  • Provide learning experiences that will allow all pupils equal opportunities to develop their thinking and creative skills;
  • Promote social, cultural, moral and spiritual development, preparing pupils to be responsible to citizens.

We believe the most effective way of achieving these aims is through the promotion of: inquiry and curiosity, enthusiasm and challenge, sharing and learning together, the acceptance and embracing of differences, openness, self respect and persistence.


Children spend seven years in their primary school and each age group is classified as follows:

Age Year
4-5 years old Foundation Stage (YR)
5-6 years old Year 1 (Y1)
6-7 years old Year 2 (Y2)
7-8 years old Year 3 (Y3)
8-9 years old Year 4 (Y4)
9-10 years old Year 5 (Y5)
10-11 years old Year 6 (Y6)

The number of pupils on roll and the number of children in each year group govern the arrangement of the classes.  This often changes from year to year.  It is desirable to keep the Key Stages separate but it is not always possible.  Class sizes are kept as balanced as possible.  Within each class, pupils are taught individually, as a group, or as a whole class but always according to their needs and abilities.

All children between the ages of 5 and 11 study the National Curriculum as well as the school's own curriculum.  The Reception children follow the final year of the Foundation Stage.  This will underpin all future learning, by supporting, fostering and promoting children's development.  Y1 and Y2 study the Key Stage 1 Programmes of Study and Years 3,4,5 and 6 study the Key Stage 2 Programmes of Study.


In May 2004, Willingham Primary School OfSTED inspectors visited the school and in their subsequent report stated that 'Willingham Primary is a very effective school'.  We were all very pleased with the outcome of our OfSTED inspection. It recognises hard work and commitment from staff, governors and parents and the all-round improvements made over the past three years.  Please select below to view the OfSTED report in full:
