Together We Learn, Achieve and Succeed
Together We Learn, Achieve and Succeed Thank you for expressing an interest in Wheatfield Primary School. Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will have to make. We hope the information in this prospectus along with a visit to the school and an opportunity to talk to the Headteacher, will help you to make that decision and choose Wheatfield Primary School. We are a new primary school for children aged 4-11 years located in brand new buildings in Winnersh. We pride ourselves in being a small school where all children are known, valued and their individual needs recognised and met. We are a growing school taking a new class each September until we have Reception through to Year 6 by 2020. Together we will learn, achieve and succeed over the coming years and we want our children to be integral to the development of the school, the curriculum and the environment.
Our curriculum is developed to excite and motivate children with a range of topics and projects that are of interest to them and to which they can fully contribute to so that their learning is engaging, interactive and fun. Personal and social skills permeate through all that we do both inside and outside the classroom. We want happy, responsible children who can contribute to their local and global community. As an academy within GLF Schools we benefit from sharing outstanding resources and support in every aspect of school life from learning and teaching to staffing and educational expertise. In addition, we work closely with Wokingham Borough Council to meet the needs of our local community. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to Wheatfield Primary School.

Expectations We have high expectations of our pupils and staff and want them all to achieve their very best in all aspects of school life. Our pupils are treated as individuals and unique. We take them from their starting points and help them to reach for the stars. Care and support at Wheatfield Primary School is equally as important as academic success. It is paramount that your children are safe, happy and secure in their school environment to ensure they maximise their learning potential. We pride ourselves on our pastoral care at Wheatfield Primary School. We have a â€˜values led schoolâ€™ where everyone is treated with respect. Our Behaviour for Learning Policy outlines very clear expectations of our children, enabling them to grow into responsible, resilient and adventurous young people.
We reward and celebrate all the achievements of the children through praise, stickers and certificates and also more formally through our Special Awards Assembly. This is a lovely positive experience for the children.
The Curriculum At Wheatfield Primary School we have a creative curriculum that engages and motivates children. We follow the National Curriculum delivered through themes that children are excited by and enjoy. We want our children to be inspired and to actively participate in all aspects of the curriculum from number to drama and role play to science. Our curriculum allows the children to develop and apply the skills they need to contribute positively to society.
Facilities Wheatfield Primary School is a brand new purpose built school designed for the 21st Century. We have a large hall for assemblies, concerts and a range of clubs and activities for the children and our local community. Information technology and computing is integral to learning and employment in the future and we are committed to preparing the children for this. The school has interactive whiteboards, laptops and tablets to enable children to enhance their learning and to develop their skills so that they can compete in this swiftly changing world. We have excellent kitchen facilities where hot and wholesome meals are provided for each child. Our grounds are plentiful and are surrounded by fields and a quiet residential area. There are lots of outdoor learning opportunities for all with our EYFS outdoor classroom, a multi-use games area, a big playing field, a quiet inspiration area and a designated play area for Years 5 and 6.
A collaborative approach to learning
We believe parents play a vital role in the education of their children and welcome parental involvement in all aspects of school life. We encourage parents, carers and other stakeholders from the local community to become volunteers or â€˜Parent Helpersâ€™. We are continually forging strong links with our local community allowing us to offer a range of experiences to our children from church-led activities and community singing to exciting after school clubs and sporting activities. We have an informed and supportive Local Governing Body who work closely with our experienced and committed staff. We have an enthusiastic Parent Staff Association who arrange a series of fundraising activities over the year to benefit our children.
We value our relationship with our neighbouring schools, both primary and secondary, giving Wheatfield Primary School children the opportunity to mix with others and to prepare them for their journey through education.
