Welcome to Whiteways Primary School
As the new Executive Headteacher, I am pleased to welcome you to Whiteways Primary School. I hope you enjoy visiting the website and find the information useful. The website should help you, whether you are looking for term dates, to see what is happening in school or if you are just wanting to get an insight into life at Whiteways Primary School.
Whiteways and Owler Brook have entered into a Learning Partnership this year and I will be working across the two schools. I will spend time in each school every day so if you ever need to see me I will be available. The Partnership is a one year arrangement initially and may become a more formal arrangement if it is a great success. We are planning for the two schools to do lots of fun and exciting things together over the year.
Our aim is to provide a high quality education for all with a broad and balanced curriculum. We want children to be excited about their learning and to enjoy coming to school. Our curriculum is thematic, with themes that change every half term. All subjects link wherever possible to a theme making the learning journey seamless. Learning is brought to life by the experience of a visit or a special visitor coming into school. We firmly believe that learning is a journey and we aim to create memorable experiences that accelerate children’s understanding and achievements. Our children are encouraged to challenge themselves, aim high and achieve high standards in all areas of the curriculum.
We recognise the strong importance in partnership between home and school. Children learn best when their families show an interest in what they are doing and support them in their learning. As such, building strong relationships with our parents, alongside high expectations and quality teaching and learning, will help our pupils realise their full potential.
Should you wish to discuss anything further please do not hesitate to contact the school.

This half term we also celebrated the achievements of 20 of our children who had work displayed in an art exhibition at Ponds Forge in Sheffield’s city centre. The children went to the opening ceremony of the gallery and met the Lord Mayor!
