Headteacher's Welcome

I would like to extend a warm welcome to you, to Winsford High Street Community Primary School. As Head teacher, I am proud to work at the school which draws children from all areas of the town and is a central feature of the local community. We are a friendly, fully inclusive school and work hard to provide quality education for all pupils irrespective of their ability or background and we also hold the Inclusion Quality Mark in recognition of our practice.

We currently have approximately 505 children in the main school, based in 20 classes. In addition to this, we have 2 Nursery classes on site, which run at capacity. We have three classes in each year group from Reception to Year 5 through demand for places during recent years and have two classes in our current Y6 cohort. 

We now admit 75 children into each year group; these children are in classes of approximately 25 to enable staff to support the learning of each individual. To accommodate the increase in numbers, we have had a new classroom block constructed for the children in the Early Years and KS1. In addition, we have also recently opened a new suite of offices so that the school can be accessed from Grange Lane for the safety of the pupils.

Although a large school, we aim to provide each pupil in the school with learning opportunities in a caring supportive environment. We promote and develop basic skills and have been accredited for our work in this area for the support which we provide for the children. In addition, we hold the Sainsbury’s Gold Active Mark for developing healthy lifestyles and enhancing the physical education opportunities for our pupils. We have also received the Arts Mark Gold on two occasions for our work in promoting the creative arts. and have recently been accredited with a National Gilt Quality Mark for our work in developing science in the school, the Silver Quality Mark for Geography and the Silver Quality Mark for Outdoor Learning.

Throughout the school we aim to provide the children with a variety of first-hand experiences through which they can develop their learning. We therefore take the pupils on residential visits from Year1 to Year 6 to widen their experiences. We also have a programme of day visits for all pupils. As a result of this, and by developing the learning opportunities to meet the needs of the children in the locality, we believe that our curriculum is outstanding.

Should you wish to know more about our school or would like to see it in operation, please don’t hesitate to contact me through the school office to make an appointment for a visit.

Kind regards


Mark Joule
