I am very proud to welcome you to Whittonstall First School. Our school has a strong family ethos and a wonderful community feel. Our staff work hard to making learning challenging yet fun, and seek to develop strong links between staff, parents, governors and the wider community.

Within our school you will find a happy, welcoming, stimulating environment providing high standards of education, valuing the efforts of the individual, fulfilling the learning potential of all pupils and promoting equal opportunities. We promote learning for life and encourage children to learn no matter where they are, inside or out! We believe in developing the “whole” child and work hard to nurture, encourage, support and extend all of our children to achieve.

Our approach encourages children to develop positive attitudes and an enthusiasm for learning. We are delighted that our children leave equipped with super initiative, self-discipline, high self-esteem and independence! Forest school and the outdoors are big parts of our curriculum.

If you are interested in joining our friendly school community, please get in touch and let us welcome you in person.

Mrs K Jacobs
Executive Head Teacher
