Headteachers Welcome

Welcome to Henry Whipple Primary School


Where ‘all staff are aspirational for pupils’ success‘, we promote pupils personal development and welfare extremely well and pupils benefit from a wide range of enrichment activities. Pupils are confident and happy and behave very well. (OFSTED January 2017 report).


At Henry Whipple Primary our education philosophy and core vision is strong and centers upon achieving the best possible outcomes for all children based upon our ‘Believe Belong Achieve’ ethos, the needs of our children and our community reflecting British values. All stakeholders have the highest of expectations for learning, behaviour and attendance and all learners have the opportunity to achieve the highest possible social, emotional, physical and academic standards. As a school, we are highly committed to supporting and enhancing the emotional wellbeing of our learners as we recognise the impact this can have on attainment and achievement.

We are a 'Requires Improvement School ' (OFSTED 20.2.17) but  we are currently taking 'effective action to tackle the areas identified ' (Monitoring Inspection Report 12.7.17).


Our school curriculum has been developed to ensure we provide a broad, balanced, rich and varied education and is deeply rooted to our vision of ‘Believe, Belong, Achieve’.  The needs of the children and the community are at the centre of the curriculum to ensure it is relevant and purposeful.  We are committed to the provision of a curriculum where developing positive attitudes and learning behaviours is a priority.  Curriculum offers highly positive, engaging and rich opportunities for all, providing practical, real life and creative opportunities which broaden our pupil’s experience through carefully planned enrichment activities and ‘Learning Away’ experiences, all of which provide our pupils with skills for lifelong learning and their future lives.
