16th November 2020 - Government update of

" what parents need to know"

Please follow the link below to see the latest update from 12th November.


We Remembered ...

At 10:58am the whole school community met together in the playground to hold two minutes silence in memory of the many people who fought bravely for their country.

We then stood in further silence as we listened to the Last Post being played.

During this very difficult time when so many have been affected it was a lovely moment to share with the children as they remembered both our brave soldiers in the past and present but also loved ones they have lost more recently.

A proud Headteacher moment.

Over the past two weeks the children have been decorating stones as they have been learning about Remembrance Day - we will be displaying these stones in one of the areas next to the glass corridor in school as we transform it into an area of Peace and Reflection.

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.
