I am delighted to welcome you to Wharncliffe Side Primary school, a friendly and inclusive school where children enjoy an exciting range of opportunities and make excellent progress. We are proud of the achievements of all our children.
I have worked at this school for 16 years. Having been part of the leadership team for a long time (and ‘Head of School’ during 18/19), I was overjoyed to be appointed as Headteacher from September. I am looking forward to leading this wonderful school as we continue to go from strength to strength.
I am passionate about enabling all children to thrive; both personally and academically. We value children’s achievements across the curriculum and encourage a ‘growth mindset’ approach to learning. Our staff are caring, supportive and nurturing. They teach important values such as respect for others and resilience. They challenge the children to achieve their ‘personal bests’ and expect the highest standards of behaviour.
Working with five other local schools as part of ‘Peak Edge’ MAT, Wharncliffe Side Primary School is in an excellent position to make further progress. These are certainly exciting times…
The curriculum we provide at Wharncliffe Side is designed so that all children develop a thirst for learning, are motivated and engaged and have the best chance to attain high academic success. There is a strong emphasis on developing the confidence and skills to be excellent communicators in all situations.
Our website aims to provide parents, carers and families at Wharncliffe Side with up to date news and information. We would welcome any positive feedback or suggestions and ideas to develop our website further. Exploring our website is important but we encourage families to visit our school so that you can see first-hand the nurturing environment, the quality of provision and the wonderful children. This will truly help you understand what we are all about at Wharncliffe Side Primary.
Please make an appointment to visit the school by calling the school office on 0114 2862379
