A very warm welcome to Whitesheet Primary Academy!
Set in the idyllic Wiltshire countryside, in an area of 'Outstanding Natural Beauty', Whitesheet Academy is a small school, with a big heart.
I feel very proud and privileged to be the Headteacher of a school, where everyone is passionately committed to giving all the children in their care, access to a rich and engaging curriculum, that aims to be irresistible and ambitious and equips all our children for life-long learning and adventure, within their own community and the world beyond. It is a school where the hearts of the children and staff are as vast as the opportunities on offer.
Here at Whitesheet, we are a very special family, where every child is valued for their own wonderful uniqueness and we work together with parents, carers and the wider community to ensure that each of those children has the opportunity to flourish socially, academically and emotionally.
Opportunities for learning outside the classroom, is very important at Whitesheet and we are exceptionally lucky to be able to offer our children access to:
- A Forest School site, with lots of opportunities for camp fires, hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows!
- Newly installed outdoor play and sports equipment. The children of all ages love this and use it to develop both their physical development and creative play.
- A heated outdoor swimming pool. The children use this regularly across the summer term for swimming lessons - it is also available for families to use at weekends and during the summer holiday period.
- A beautiful secret garden, which is being developed to include; a restocked pond area, herb garden, raised vegetable beds and fruit trees. We will also be adding wooden tee-pees for the children to use for quiet reflection and contemplation.
To truly appreciate the unique opportunity on offer here at Whitesheet, we would recommend that you come along for a visit, where you will be warmly welcomed and invited for a tour of the school by our school ambassadors. You will also have an opportunity to meet with the staff and ask any questions you may have.
