About Us

Anyone who knows Wansdyke will be able to tell you that we are a small, vibrant community in which everybody knows each other. 

We work very hard to ensure that every child develops a love of learning and takes positive experiences from all aspects of school life so that they flourish in our care. We aim to deliver high quality education within a caring and stimulating environment. We believe that children achieve if they feel valued and so provide lots of opportunities for children to develop independence and contribute their own ideas to developing our learning community. 

Mission Statement

Agreed with staff and governors originally in September 2005 (revisited on a regular basis)

“We believe that, in learning side by side, each member of our community will be united in our common purpose, so that through commitment, enthusiasm and determination we will rise from strength to strength together”. 

This mosaic was created by children and staff, to reflect our Mission Statement. From this comes our school’s Vision Statement which is promoted through displays, assemblies and throughout everything that we do: 

Learning Side by Side

Rising from Strength to Strength 

Our Aims

We believe that we work together as a learning community on a daily basis, fulfilling our mission statement by: listening, explaining, communicating, encouraging, co-operating and helping each other. 

Wansdyke School is committed to excellence and personal success by supporting children in:

  • Demonstrating generosity of spirit and emotional strength
  • Becoming positive citizens, respecting themselves and the diversity of their community
  • Challenging themselves to exceed their own potential, going from strength to strength and making aspirations for the future 
  • Enjoying a breadth of achievement
  • Working independently and developing the ability to question, challenge and create
  • Being collaborative and resourceful learners in any situation

We want to make sure that every child in our school has:

  • A fair and equal chance to learn in a safe but stimulating environment
  • Lots of interesting learning opportunities in all subjects
  • A chance to celebrate their achievements with each other and all the adults
  • Lots of equipment to help with their learning
  • The chance to learn about other cultures and people around the world
  • Encouragement to stop and think about their learning so they know what they are good at, what they need to learn next and how they learn best
