Welcome to our school!


Thank you for visiting our school website. We are a small, welcoming school  at the heart of our community. We pride ourselves on our calm, friendly atmosphere which allows all children to flourish and achieve their potential in all areas of school life. 

'Roots to Grow and Wings to Fly'


At Whiston, we take the time to get to know our children really well, their strengths, their interests and what makes them unique. We make sure that learning is engaging, challenges thinking, develops curiosity and creativity. We design our curriculum so that children's social and emotional skills grow alongside their knowledge and understanding of the world around them and the national curriculum subjects.


We believe that reading is the key to success and we are determined that every pupil will learn to read, regardless of their background, needs or abilities. The importance of being a reader is to gain a voice and to participate meaningfully and assertively in decisions that affect one’s life. The importance of being a reader is to gain self-confidence and to become self-assertive.  Reading enables our pupils to read their own world and write their own history. Reading provides access to knowledge – and knowledge is power. In a nutshell … reading empowers.


Please feel free to contact or visit us if you are looking for a school for your child where we put the ' whole' children first.

Kindest regards,

Mrs Tina Angell
