Dear Parents, Carers and the community of Winlaton,

Caroline TetleyWelcome 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.

Winlaton WLCP endeavours to be a forward-thinking school which is experiencing a time of change and rapid improvement. High expectations of teaching and learning, behaviour and team work are the norm here. We want to be outstanding in all areas of school life.

At Winlaton WLCP you will find a welcoming and vibrant environment, with all involved taking responsibility for themselves and other people. We work hard to achieve our best in everything we do. REACHING FOR THE STARS!

Caroline Tetley (Head Teacher)

It’s official !!

We’re an Ofsted GOOD School !!

Year 1 have the right to be healthy…

Year 1 have been exploring healthy and unhealthy foods in PSHCE, because we all have the right to a balanced diet (UNCRC, article 24). We tasted some unfamiliar fruits and talked about the taste of each, collecting our preferences and then putting this data (information) into a pictogram in our maths lesson. We discovered that pineapple was the most popular fruit…

Year 1 become master shape sorters!

Year 1 have become master shape identifiers! We have been using our knowledge of 3-D shapes to sort them into different groups – sorting the shapes by size, colour and properties. We decided the best way to sort the 3-D shapes was to sort them into round and straight edges – finding shapes which had both round and straight edges in our hoop venn diagrams.

Year 1 discover The ‘Commonwealth’!

Year 1 have been very busy learning about ‘The Commonwealth’ this week. We have learnt about the 53 nations which are part of the Commonwealth and the children were all surprised to find out that our Queen rules over all of them!

Year 1 visit a super, soggy Ouseburn farm!

Despite the weather last week, Year 1 had a super (but soggy!) time visiting Ouseburn farm! We fed and stroked the farm animals and planted our own seeds – there was so much to see and we had a fantastic time, as you can see from our photo slideshow!

All Stars Cricket visits West Lane…

Last week, our school had a visit from our local All Stars Cricket representative – who told us all about this summers’ exciting scheme!

Year 3 visit the future Land of Oak and Iron…

Last week, Year 3 visited the ESH building site – to see where the new ‘Land of Oak and Iron’ visitor centre will be built. Take a look at our photo gallery slideshow to see how much fun we all had…

Year 3 ‘expo’ with chef Nick!

On Wednesday 7th March, Year 3 were lucky enough to have Nick the Chef in school to teach us all about what kinds of foods the Ancient Mayans ate. We chopped, sliced and cooked a wide variety of ingredients to make a tortilla stew in Year 3 Rowan and vegetable chilli for Year Elm. The food was delicious!

Introducing our new School Parliamentary body…

This week, we convened our third school parliament meeting, since successfully achieving our UNICEF ‘Rights Respecting School’ Silver Award accreditation! We have some truly outstanding class MP’s – who are very proud to be representing the views of their peers within our school! Our new school parliamentary body is made up of elected pupils from years 3-6 and they will be championing the rights of pupils within West Lane Primary at all levels. Last half-term, we welcomed two new MP’s (Erin and Caitlyn) and we are therefore very pleased to introduce our newly re-formed parliamentary body to you all…
