I just wanted to take the opportunity to let you know that the online learning is working really well for our child who is in year 6. You have looked at his individual needs and provided extra one to one google meet support in the areas that he is struggling with. The class forum with his teachers and peers is working really well and lots of children are engaging in really informative chat and encouragement. We are able to work through the daily activities that are set by his teachers , who are on hand to ask any questions through google classroom. We submit his work daily and this is marked promptly by his form teacher and constructive/informative feedback is given. He is really enjoying the google meets with his teachers and peers. These sessions also giving him the opportunity to ask any questions about any subject area he is struggling with. The google meet with his peers, teachers and head mistress at the beginning and end of the day completes what is a brilliant package. Well done to all the staff at Whitley and Eggborough school. You are a credit to our community.

As the government requires children to be educated at home because of the Covid situation, it is incumbent on all those involved to ensure the children’s education suffers as little as possible. In this respect, WECPS has put in place very comprehensive learning facilities to accommodate all situations. The Head teacher keeps parents up to date on a daily basis with the sometimes, bewildering changes that have to be made. Miss Langridge makes sure everyone is aware of every aspect of Covid that effects the schoolchildren education and welfare. Individual teachers and staff of the school follow their Head’s example. My son is in Year 2 in the care of Class teacher Miss Frier. Her excellent preparation of remote schooling lessons make it easy for the parents of her children to cope with the stress of having multiple roles at home. Miss Frier, and all the other teaching staff, work far beyond their required hours to make sure the education of her pupils carries on smoothly. The teaching staff as WECPS are available to respond to all questions from parents on a daily basis and epitomise the CHAS school motto, Caring, Helping and Sharing. The biggest compliment I can give to WECPS is that if I was offered a chance to go back three years and choose any school for my four year old son to begin his school career with, I would choose Whitley and Eggborough community primary school again. Thank you Miss Langridge.

Return to school - 8th March 2021


Please see the document below that provides information relating to the return to school for ALL children on 8th March 2021.


Key points relate to the earlier school finish as decided prior to the 3rd Lockdown in January 2021 and the testing of staff twice weekly that could cause temporary immediate closure of bubbles.

Please note that all teaching staff will be back in school (providing there is no illness) and classes / bubbles will resume as during the Autumn Term. 

Where individual children need to self isolate we will provide the daily work on line for the children and where whole classes need to isolate we will remote teach as we have been doing over the past seven weeks.  - Please refer to our School Remote Learning Policy below.


Thank you  

Miss Langridge

After School Club  - childcare

Please note, having received the information back from parents with requirements for childcare, it will not be financially viable to run the After School Club.  Children who are attending school should therefore be collected at the end of the school day at 3 pm.  We understand this may make things difficult for some parents and apologise for this, but we are unable to run the service at a loss.  

Breakfast club will be running from 7.30 am onwards (with breakfast available) One charge of £5.00 will be payable per child and MUST be paid in advance.  

Thank you.

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.
