Welcome to Wilby CEVC Primary School
A good education is one of the most precious gifts a child can receive.
Our children are remarkable young people. We want them to have energy and enthusiasm for all that life has to offer; to live as responsible citizens and to succeed academically in our rapidly changing society. We wish to develop their unique talents and aspirations and to give them our fullest support and guidance in every endeavour. As a Church of England school we uphold Christian values and believe in promoting the rights of all. We want all of our children to enjoy learning and strive to be the very best that they can be in all that they do.
A combination of “dreaming big” and having dedicated teachers is a key reason why Wilby Church of England Primary School was ranked as the joint-best primary school for SATs results last year. This year, levels in reading mean that the school is in the top 1% for attainment in the country.
We are a Pre-school, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 Church of England Primary School which serves children from a wide catchment area. Ours is a happy school where every child matters. Our pupils benefit from the family atmosphere created within the school environment which gives them confidence in caring for and being cared for by others. Our staff are inspiring, highly dedicated and enthusiastic and our governors supportive yet challenging. These factors, combined with the committed involvement of our parents, helps to ensure that each child achieves their maximum potential.
This website seeks to introduce you to our school, outline some of the many opportunities it offers and to demonstrate our aim to provide an outstanding education for every child. However, there can be no replacement for first hand experience and we welcome visitors. We invite you to join us to come and see learning in action. Please contact the school office to arrange a visit.
We look forward to meeting you in the near future.
Mrs Roisin Wiseman
