We believe that self-esteem is the single most important factor contributing towards a young person's success. With no self-respect a person can have no respect for others or for the community within which they live. Self-esteem nurtures pride in work and appearance and helps to develop a sense of determination.
We are a small school that creates a secure family atmosphere with a spirit of caring and being cared for. Every child is an individual whose abilities are developed, encouraged and valued accordingly. This is a happy place where all can contribute to every aspect of school life and the life of its wider community.
Children develop their skills and attitudes, challenged to a level appropriate to their ability, within a curriculum that is broad and stimulating. We believe that it is important to give children the opportunity for regular moments of quiet so that they can reflect upon the world, themselves and how they believe they fit into it.
We encourage full support and communication with parents as we know that without this our educational aims will founder.
We would hope that when our children leave Whitbourne Primary School, they will be equipped to successfully meet the challenges that lie ahead.
