Welcome to Wingfield
At Wingfield Primary School we collect evidence about what works best now and use this evidence to improve outcomes for all. Our vision is to build a school community focused on the learner: child and adult. We have progressed from deliverers of a curriculum for children to designers of learning for all. Given this, we now offer an expanding programme of learning opportunities because we're passionate advocates of learning without limits.
Ross Silcock, Head Teacher
A very warm welcome to Wingfield Primary School. We would like to take this opportunity to introduce our school to you. Wingfield Primary School is a values based learning community at the heart of Kidbrooke Village. Following a recent Ofsted inspection (June 2016) the school was judged to be outstanding in the following areas:
- Effectiveness of leadership and management
- Personal development, behaviour and welfare
- Early years provision
In the following areas the school was judged to be good:
- Quality of teaching, learning and assessment
- Outcomes for pupils
During the recent Ofsted inspection children commented that “teachers make learning fun…..we learn cooperatively…..teachers are strict, but they make learning exciting” and parents were overwhelmingly positive about the school and value the school’s work. In particular, one parent commented that “The leadership have turned the school around, in my opinion, and the headteacher is very accessible to all and remembers all of the pupils’ names making them feel special. Progress and attainment are priorities, but welfare and value are paramount in the school.”
We’re delighted that Ofsted have recognised all of the school’s fantastic achievements and everyone’s hard work. In particular, that children are making exceptional progress in reading, writing and maths. We’re incredibly proud of all that we have accomplished at our school in such a short period of time and look forward to building on these successes during this new school year in collaboration with South Rise Primary School and as part of the Compass Partnership of schools. We will also continue to build relationships with other educational institutions, for example, Goldsmiths’ College, the University of Greenwich, the Academy for Innovation and The Schools, Students and Teachers Network.
This year we are focused on our new Core Priorities and have a detailed School Development Plan written by all members of the leadership team. These have been shared with all members of our school community. Specifically we will be thinking about how we can unlock the potential of all learners and embedding the backward by design pedagogy in our curriculum.
We continue to develop our values with the children through our assemblies and children use the language of the values with confidence. This year we have also introduced the following learning dispositions to support the children with their learning: adventurous, aspirational and independent. We hope that as you explore our website you get a strong sense of our culture and ethos. All of us at Wingfield Primary School are committed to developing young people who are confident, feel valued and are able to make a positive contribution to our community. We feel strongly that creating an environment in which we strike the correct balance between challenge and nurture, and where children have a clear understanding of what they need to do to succeed/flourish develops well rounded children who, above all, are happy.
We’re excited to announce that work on the new school building commenced in July and we’re hoping for a completion date in August 2017. We will share regular progress updates and photographs on our NEWS tab and on Twitter (follow us @wingfield11).
We hope that you will find our website to be both extensive and easy to use. If you are a prospective parent please do contact us to make an appointment to see the school in action. If you cannot find the information you want to on this website, please contact the school, by email or directly by telephone. We will be pleased to hear from you.
Once again, a very warm welcome to Wingfield Primary School.
