Welcome to Wickham Common Primary School...
A Warm Welcome
Welcome to our school website which contains a wide range of information about Wickham Common Primary School, including recent news and achievements, upcoming events and our future plans. We trust that you will find it useful, easy to navigate and informative – giving a true sense of what our successful and family-orientated school is all about.
Welcome to wonderful Wickham Common Primary School. I say ‘wonderful’ because it is true! This school (and its environment) is a very special and beautiful place and is admired and respected by the local community in which we are deeply rooted.
We work in partnership with parents, staff, governors and Compass Academy Trust to ensure that children succeed in all aspects of their learning. As a result, our pupils achieve very well across the whole curriculum
Our vision for our pupils is for them to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. In order to achieve this, we deliver a well-planned curriculum that is inspiring, globally aware, diverse, challenging and creative. Our curriculum ensures that children take an active part in their learning, developing their knowledge, skills and interests. We value and promote independence, thoughtfulness and curiosity to build the values of respect, resourcefulness and resilience.
We firmly believe that every child can achieve, so we support children’s confidence in their own unique abilities and encourage them to take pride in all their achievements. We are focussed on the ‘whole child’– their happiness, their health, their well-being.
As part of Compass Academy Trust, Wickham Common Primary School benefits from working closely within a family of four local primary schools and has the opportunity to collaborate and share good practice whilst still retaining our individual identity and ethos.
Our purpose for our children within our family of schools is as follows:
Happy, Safe & Secure - we will ensure that all children are nurtured and learn within an environment where they feel happy, safe and secure. We will actively build trust and collaboration between all members of our school communities and across the Trust as a whole
Inspirational Curriculum - our curriculum will be broad, balanced and enable deep, purposeful learning to take place through exciting, memorable and joyous experiences that enables children to meet the world and contribute to it.
High Academic and Wider Outcomes - we will never put a ceiling on learning and constantly look for opportunities for all pupils to excel, enabling all pupils to thrive and celebrate their achievements.
Next Steps Ready - we will work collaboratively with all parties to ensure that children are ready for the next steps in their education and in their lives.
We would be delighted to welcome you to our school. Please contact the school office direct (the details can be found on the “Contact” page on our website) with any queries you may have or to make an appointment to visit us to experience our school community and its environment.
