Welcome to Whitley And Eggborough Community Primary School
May I welcome you and your child to the school. Whitley and Eggborough school provides a high standard of teaching for all children who attend. Children obtain good national test results and receive a well-rounded education from experienced, committed teachers and other staff. As well as high levels of achievement, our philosophy is that children should enjoy learning and school life and feel part of the family atmosphere we work hard to foster.
Opened originally in 1877, the school was extensively rebuilt in the early 1970s and was recently further extended in 2011. It has a pleasing open aspect to the rear of the buildings, looking over farm and woodland. We have our own woodland and pond area, which we enjoy and use as an integral part of our curriculum work.
At Whitley and Eggborough School, our vision is provided through a rich range of memorable learning experiences, learning experiences that affect the emotions. In other words, learning that excites and charges experience, learning that makes our children feel something significant and provides experiences that they will remember for a long, long time. This is achieved through creating learning opportunities in the classroom that are inclusive, meaningful and thrilling. Learning moments and experiences engage the children and excite their emotions, send a shiver through the soul and put them in ‘challenging’ situations.
We want to encourage learning for the future and so it is vitally important that the children are happy, secure and that their learning journey is fun.
If you require paper copies of any information available on our website, please contact the school office. We will be happy to provide these free of charge. These can also be made available in large print, braille or another language.
