Pupils at Wantage CE Primary School are safe, happy and enjoy their learning. We are well-supported by the Vale Academy Trust, governors, the local church, parents, and the wider community. This allows us to offer our pupils a broad and balanced curriculum that enables pupils to flourish and to live life to the full.

We are pleased to offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities including sports clubs such as judo, rugby, netball, tennis, frisbee, water-polo, tri-golf and ‘quad kids’ athletics. We are very proud of our sporting successes and the ever-increasing percentage of children who take part in a wide range of sports. We achieved the Schools Sports Mark Platinum Award this year, an accolade which we are proud of. We also competed in several local maths competitions and ran popular computing and robotics clubs.

We have a rich tradition of music at Wantage CE. Every year, Year 3 learn a brass instrument; and individual instrument lessons take place in all years including flute, keyboard, piano, drums and guitar. Gordon Campbell, VAT music specialist, teaches one day a week, leading Key Stage choirs and whole-school singing.



Our church links are very important to us. A team from church present a weekly Open the Book assembly and join us for collective worship. We attend church each term and we look forward to the Prayer Space team who visit us twice a year. Our Year 5 pupils enjoy the dedicated support of the nuns from St Mary’s Convent Wantage in helping them to understand the deeper meaning and significance of the Passion play which the pupils write, produce and perform every Easter.

Staff development continues to remain at the heart of Wantage CE Primary School. We have two staff who have completed their teacher training and are now teaching full time with us, we employed the first apprentice TA in the trust (he is performing extremely well), and this year we have a TA who has progressed to train as a SCITT with us.

School staff, parents and governors have together formulated a distinctive Christian vision for the school. Excellence for all in an environment of love, respect, hope, forgiveness and courage; where every pupil flourishes and lives life to the full.
