Our School

Whiteways Primary School has served the children of the area for many years with some of our ex-pupils now returning as parents themselves.  Until very recently, the school only took children between the ages of 7 and 11, but children can now enter the school Nursery at 3 years old and stay with us until they are ready to go to secondary school when they are 11.

The school currently has approximately 500 pupils on roll, representing around 20 nationalities and 25 different languages.

All of the staff at Whiteways are very keen to develop excellent relationships with the parents.  The school has an 'open door' policy.  Parents are welcome to work alongside staff and to help in school in many ways.

We believe that a primary school is at the heart of the community and seek to create strong links with all members of our locality, regardless of age, ability, race, or colour.

If you would like to find out more about the school, or would like to see the school 'in action', please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.
