Our School Prospectus
May we welcome you to Wilberlee Junior and Infant School and hope that you find this booklet both informative and useful.

This booklet is designed as a guide to parents in which we set out our aims, the curriculum and the organisation established for the care of the individual child and information about the running of the school. It is written by the Headteacher and Governors for your information.

If your child is new to the school, we extend a special welcome and emphasise from the beginning the importance we attach to our links with parents. The school has a Parent Association known as "Friends of Wilberlee" which aims to support the school through organising both fund raising and social activities for children and parents. Parents are invited into school at some point each term to discuss their child's progress and should not hesitate to contact us at any time should the need arise. They are always welcome to visit the school, to look around or talk to staff, a prior phone call would be helpful if possible. We believe that close liaison between parents and school is essential if children are to be happy and to learn effectively and we look for parental support with this.

Wilberlee School has an enviable position in the community and we hope that having chosen us, your child will benefit from the time they spend with us.

About The School

Wilberlee School is a group 1 Junior and Infant Community School. It is a mixed school which serves children from a wide catchment area in the age range 4+ to 11 years. The recommended maximum pupil limit for the school is 77. The school has a long history and can trace its origins back to the National School that was built in 1785 to serve the needs of the village children. This building still remains and can be seen opposite the Parish Church.

In 1845 Upper Slaithwaite Church Mission School was opened at Shred and continued until 1894 when a new Board School was opened at Wilberlee for 160 children. At the time when the new school was built most of the children lived in small farm cottages on the surrounding hillsides and very few children came to the school from lower down the valley. This changed when houses were built along Longlands Road. Later the Longlands estate was erected. Now most of the children arrive by the school bus which comes up the hill from Slaithwaite. There are however, a few children who travel from the outlying districts of Scammonden, Pole Moor, Upper Holme and Merrydale to get to school.

The school building still retains many of the original Victorian features although internal changes have been made in recent years. In 1998 class 3 was extended to the rear of the school and this enabled a library and ITC area to be created upstairs. During the summer of 2000 another classroom was constructed above the existing infant classroom and these were extended further during 2003. There is also a hall, staff room, office and a kitchen. The caretaker lives in the school house which is on site. The building is surrounded by playground and there is a pleasant school field to the rear, part of which has been developed as a wildlife conservation area.

Wilberlee is a safe and happy environment where children and staff feel valued and can develop their potential to the full.

Section 1 of the Education reform act 1988 requires that the curriculum should promote the spiritual, moral and cultural development of pupils and should prepare them for the opportunities, responsibility and experiences of adult life. The following explains how we set about this.
We aim to provide a high quality of education by:

Providing a broad and balanced curriculum within a positive and challenging learning environment.

Creating a caring environment in which everyone is encouraged to show concern and respect for others, to behave with self - discipline and to develop a sense of responsibility.

Providing children with equal opportunities to develop a range of skills, knowledge and understanding that they need in order to play a full role in a modern, multicultural society.

Following the requirements of the National Curriculum provide children with the confidence and opportunity to achieve their full potential and fully develop all the abilities they possess
