The School’s Background
Welcome to Whiston Junior and Infant School. We are really proud of our children at Whiston Junior and Infant School, as they try to be 'the best they can be' in all areas of school life. Children at Whiston are polite, well-mannered and hard working and strive to develop many of our key skills including resilience, independence and determination.
Our school was built in 1961 and we are proud of the newly refurbished building and attractive, well equipped grounds. It is a purpose built school with seven classrooms, starting in Foundation Stage 2. We cater for children from four to eleven years of age.
Sport is an important part of a growing child’s life therefore we offer a variety of after school sporting activities. We are extremely fortunate in having extensive playing fields for the children to use.
Within the school grounds we have a seaside themed garden, ball court and trim trail plus substantial play equipment in the Foundation Stage outdoor area.
We expect excellence from our children and strive to provide the best resources and materials to achieve this.
Our School joined the White Woods Primary Multi Academy Trust with Whiston Worrygoose Junior and Infant School and Canklow Woods Primary School in September 2013. Wickersley Northfield Primary School joined the Academy in November 2014. This allows all four schools to benefit from extra purchasing power plus the sharing of skills and expertise.
