Conrad Burkin is a much admired poet at WECPS.  A friend of Mrs Coventry's who has spent time in school working with the children - sharing his knowledge of poetry.

We think he has summed up the latest announcement well in this poem...

An update from Miss Langridge ....

I will be sending out new information (hopefully by the end of today) that I would recommend you read carefully.  I have aimed to give you as parents more information to help you make informed and considered decision on your child returning to school.  I have provided the reasoning behind the decisions based on the guidance received from the DfE.

A new form will be sent, first to all parents to indicate if they are key workers and need provision.  Please note, the list of Key Workers has not changed from the beginning of school closure  and we still require  specific written confirmation from employers.

A second form will then follow for parents of Year R / 1 / 6.


I appreciate some people have already sent the original form in but we would appreciate you redoing this form in light of the new information.

Both forms will be sent by parent mail this time.

  Many thanks  Miss Langridge

The children are all currently using the internet far more than would have ever imagined at the moment and with teachers starting Google Meets we would like to remind the Children and Parents about how to keep safe on line.

Below are some useful sites that provide plenty of guidance on how to ensure your child is not at risk online.  Please take the time to read and observe.

Thanks Miss L

You may have heard about enterprising young Isabelle H who featured in the Selby Times this week with her fundraising.  To date Isabelle has raised £370 for the NHS.   

We are very proud of you Isabelle!

PLEASE CARE, HELP and SHARE -  our children need to have the HOPE for THEIR FUTURE !

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.
