Working for Us

So, what are the benefits of working for a school in the GLF family of schools? We are a group of schools rooted in providing the best possible education for children and we are not motivated by ‘making a profit’. This means we enable each Headteacher and their team of leaders to ensure that the work of their school is of the highest standard allowing children and young people to have high aspirations. We continually offer excellent CPD opportunities as well as supported career development across the family of schools. Over the past three years, we have trained and developed 15 leaders who have been promoted to headship, deputy headship, assistant headship and school business managers. Our family of schools regularly network and collaborate to share insight, expertise and best practice not only within our own family but also beyond. (For example last term, Glyn School hosted an Independent Thinking ‘Big Day Out’, where some of the UK’s leading educational innovators, thinkers, authors and practitioners came together to share ideas, insights and strategies.) 

As a part of GLF Schools, you will have access to a huge network of support including:

  -     Support challenge meetings

-      Data analysis and target setting

-      Ofsted preparation

-     Coaching and support for teachers

Local Area

Wokingham Property and Architecture

Wokingham is a quintessential old English Market town much of its history can be seen in some of the fantastic architecture throughout the town. The historic town hall stands on the site of the original Guildhall, with further examples of historic buildings including the Old Rose Inn, which was constructed in 1848 coupled with the Parish Church of All Saints which combines elements of construction from the 12th, 15th and 19th centuries.

The town’s period property stock is typically concentrated around the central areas of Broad Street, Peach Street, Denmark Street, Shute End and the many tributaries of the same.

However much of the town has been developed within the last 80 years and moreover from the 1960’s onwards. Examples of more recent housing can be found in such areas as The Lilacs, The Woodlands and Hampshire Way to the west and south west whilst in areas such as Cranford Pines to the North off of the Old Forest road you will find examples of brand new  speculatively built modern accommodation.

Wokingham Shopping and Entertainment

The mainstay of the ample array of amenities within the town can be found in and around the area of Broad Street including local independent stores and boutiques as well as a number of national high street chainstores such as WHSmiths, Boots and Marks & Spencer together with various newsagents and a post office. 

The town is well served by a vast array of pubs and restaurants offering a large variety of cuisine spanning from your typical ‘pub grub’ through to Indian, Italian, Chinese, Mediterranean and seafood, amongst others, ensuring that all palates are catered for.

Whilst the larger local Supermarkets include Morrisons off of Woosehill, Waitrose off of Rectory Road and Tesco off of Finchampstead Road.

Despite its nearness to the capital the district is renowned for its woodlands, rivers and private isolated villages.  The town is well served with several open spaces which house all manner of facilities including children’s play areas and football pitches, together with various golf courses. 

There are a several country parks within the borough, Keephatch Park is situated on the north eastern border of Wokingham and offers a 9 hectare local nature reserve, and to the south west you will find Heathlake, which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest owing to its 7 acre acid lake which encourages the growth of several rare plant species.

Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Wheatfield Primary School and thank you for expressing an interest in us. Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will have to make and we hope the information on this website along with a visit to the school and an opportunity to talk to the Headteacher will provide you with all the information you need to choose Wheatfield Primary.

I am really pleased to be the Head Teacher of the second GLF Academy School in Wokingham. I am thrilled to welcome our first 27 pupils to Sunflower Class and to be part of their educational journey.

We are a new primary school in a brand new building, purpose built for children aged 4 to 11 years. We are a small school where all children are known, valued and their individual needs recognised and met. Our maximum number on roll is 210.

We currently have one Reception Class.  In September 2015 we will have a Reception class and one Year 1 class. Each year the school will increase its age range, adding an additional year group until it is an all through primary school.

Our curriculum has been developed to excite and motivate children with a range of topics and projects that are of interest to them and to which they can fully contribute to so that their learning is engaging, interactive and fun. We start with 'Wonderful, Marvellous Me!'

Our aim is to develop learning skills for life and creative, independent thinkers and together we will Learn, Achieve and Succeed.

We interpret learning in its widest sense and developing personal and social skills are integral to all we do so that our children are happy, responsible citizens of the future who can actively contribute to society.

As an Academy within GLF Schools we benefit from sharing outstanding resources and support in every aspect of school life from learning and teaching to staffing and educational expertise.

In addition we work closely with Wokingham Borough Council to meet the needs of our local community.

Teaching and Learning at Wheatfield Primary School

 

Together we learn, achieve and succeed

At Wheatfield Primary we have a creative curriculum that engages and motivates children. We want our children to be inspired and to actively participate in all aspects of the curriculum from number to drama and role play to science.

Our curriculum allows children to develop and apply the skills they need to contribute positively to society. We offer an engaging and exciting curriculum for all our children, encouraging the children to lead their own learning and develop a sense of curiosity and wonder about the world around them.

We believe parents and carers play a vital role in the education of their children and welcome parental involvement in all aspects of school life.  We encourage parents, carers and other stake holders.
