Windwhistle Primary School in North Somerset is a large primary school for children aged 3-11 years with the advantage of having a nursery and preschool too. Windwhistle has a long-standing history in Weston-super-Mare with many fond memories still talked about amongst the community. Situated in urban surroundings, Windwhistle has safe, large, green natural spaces in which our children can play and learn.
Windwhistle is extraordinary because of the children, parents, community, and staff who bring it to life each day. The energy, care, and passion of our dedicated and established team really does make a difference in the close-knit community.
Our aim is for every child to achieve by building confidence. Our children bring joy and positive energy to all areas of school; they inspire us to be the best we can be showing resilience and determination to tackle all the challenges life throws at them.
We have extensive grounds and abundant space in which to deliver a wide variety of activities. We are excited to be implementing OPAL (Outdoor Play and Learning) so that children gain maximum benefit from our beautiful grounds.
We are really proud to be able to provide our children and community with excellent, modern facilities. We have a purpose built foundation stage unit, excellent indoor and outdoor sports facilities and have invested in our outdoor play facilities. We regularly update our ICT suite and make good use of new technology in classrooms.
We believe that every moment of every day is for learning. We believe that learning and teaching are most effective when based on first-hand experiences. We aim to make learning irresistible!
At Windwhistle Primary School we recognise that children need to be emotionally ready to learn. We have a strong pastoral team, to support every child when they need it.
We greatly value the involvement and support of parents and carers in school, and encourage you to play a positive part in your child’s education at all times. We appreciate parent helpers during the school day when you can be involved in a variety of activities from one-off trips to a regular weekly commitment. If you would like to help in any way, please contact your child’s class teacher or the headteacher. Volunteers undergo a screening process before they start to help out in class.
