Dear Parents, Carers and the community of Winlaton,
Welcome to Winlaton West Lane Community Primary School where we believe we have something very special and all staff, children, parents and Governors strive to REACH FOR THE STARS!
I am very proud to be the Headteacher of a school with such awe-inspiring children, dedicated staff and supportive parents and carers.
Staff and Governors helped to create our vision statement for our wonderful school which is based on a happy, inclusive school which exudes an ethos of opportunity for all -children, staff, Governors, Parents and the wider community of Winlaton. One that enables our children to take responsibility and be the workforce of the future.

It’s a messy job but someone’s got to do it!
This week, we had a very interesting delivery from an archaeologist -some Viking poo! We were all rather intrigued as to why we would be looking at this interesting specimen. In order to see what they ate, we had to get our hands dirty, and research the poo to see what we could find.
Year 1 have been VERY excited this week, as we had a delivery of some VERY special chicken eggs – they arrived on Monday, started to wobble on Tuesday, one started to hatch on Wednesday and then when we came into school on Thursday morning 7 had hatched!read more

In year 5 we have had great fun designing and making Anglo Saxon brooches! After researching different patterns, we designed our own brooch – thinking carefully about the materials we could use to make our brooches look authentic. We think our finished products look fantastic!read more
