Headteacher's Welcome

I would like to extend a warm welcome to you, to Winsford High Street Community Primary School. As Headteacher, 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 464 children in the main school, based in 18 classes. In addition to this, we have a Nursery on site, which runs at capacity. We have three classes in each year group from Reception to Year 3 through demand for places during the past three years and have two classes in our current Y4 –Y6 cohorts. In each year group our average class size is 26.

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. In addition, we had also recently opedned a new suite of officesso 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 and we have also received the Arts Mark Gold on two occasions for our work in promoting the creative arts. Furthermore, we have recently been accredited with a National Bronze Quality Mark for our work in developing science in the school.

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 the many and varied activities available to the children Ofsted recognised our curriculum as being outstanding on our last inspection.

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
