Welcome from our Headteacher:

Thank you for taking the time to visit our school website, we hope it gives you an insight into what makes our school so special. At Wolviston we encourage and celebrate a love of learning with high aspirations for each and everyone of our school community . We are proud to be a Rights Respecting School and have worked hard to achieve level 2. As duty bearers we help our pupils to grow into confident, caring and responsible young citizens both in school and within the wider community. By learning about their rights our pupils also learn about the importance of respecting the rights of others.

  • Everyone treats each other with respect and care
  • All children succeed and develop their ability to think independently
  • All our staff go above and beyond expectations to make a difference

Our Vision

We believe that:

Aimee Willmott

Our school council wrote to Olympian Aimee Willmott inviting her to visit and we were thrilled when she agreed to come! Aimee gave a fascinating assembly to the whole school and left us all feeling inspired. She answered questions too, which included “Who has been your toughest opponent?”, “What would you have been if you weren’t a swimmer?” and “Do you swim every day?” (which is apparently yes apart from Sundays and Christmas Day!). We gave Aimee a birthday card and present as it was nearly her birthday and we...

Guide Dog Visit

The children from Class 1 and 2 enjoyed meeting Val and her guide dog, Whisper. They enjoyed hearing all about Whisper and were able to give him a stroke too.

World Refugee Day 2016

The day started with an assembly where we heard different stories about children who are refugees and it gave us lots to think about. Every class took part in the Send my Friend to School activity and created rucksacks with thoughtful messages. These are displayed throughout the school and some exmaples can be found...
