Our School

 

Our school is situated to the east of the village of Wylam in a very pleasant setting overlooking the Tyne Valley. There has been a school at Wylam for well over a hundred years, but the present building was opened in May 1974.  It is a purpose built First School comprising five classrooms, a hall, kitchen, administrative area and a 26 place nursery.  The school has an excellent playing field, which is used extensively throughout the year.

 

Mission Statement

  • We value the unique qualities of all individuals, promoting honesty and tolerance.
  • We provide a safe, caring, and stimulating environment to maximize the achievement of all children and foster a love of learning.
  • Through careful planning of differentiated activities we build on skills, ensure equal opportunities and aim for high standards.
  • We actively promote the development of children’s thinking skills by encouraging questioning and reasoning across the curriculum. We believe these skills help to prepare children for life in the 21st Century.
