About Us

Catherine Wayte Primary School opened in September 2000 and provides education for pupils aged 4-11 years from north Swindon. It has proved to be a successful and popular primary school and has been expanded to become a two-form entry school, with two classes for each year group.

The school is named after the daughter of the one-time owner of Manor Farm and the land on which the school is built. Catherine Wayte was concerned that local children were not being educated and sought to provide schooling for children from the parishes of Blunsdon St. Andrew and Rodbourne Cheney. She established a school in Haydon Wick in 1806 to provide basic education for local boys and girls in the 19th century. We are proud to be named after her.

Catherine Wayte Primary School provides an extremely effective and exciting curriculum which in some ways is similar to that of the old school but has all the elements of 21st century education and the technology it brings including interactive whiteboards in every class room, three class sets of laptops, two class sets of iPads, digital cameras, digital microscopes, visualisers and more! Staff and governors consider the needs of the individual child as a citizen of the future as well as teaching the basic skills incorporated in the Early Years Foundation Stage and National Curriculum set by the government. We continue to support the ‘Every Child Matters’ outcomes re. safety, health, enjoyment and achievement, economic well-being and making a positive contribution to the community.

In January 2019, OFSTED confirmed that Catherine Wayte Primary School continues to be a good school.
