Walton Primary Academy is proud to be part of the Waterton Academy Trust, a group of like-minded schools with an ethos of creating vibrant and engaging environments where all pupils have the potential to shine.

Walton Primary Academy is a 1.5 form entry school in the village of Walton which is approximately 3.5 miles south east of the centre of Wakefield. Walton is a picturesque village with a strong sense of community. We are located on the boundary of Walton Hall, once the residence of Charles Waterton, the naturalist and explorer who lends his name to our trust.

We are very proud of our children and we place a huge emphasis on community and the role that parents play in the education of their children. At Walton Primary Academy we aim to provide all our learners with endless possibilities and a deep self-belief. We aim to facilitate opportunities that spark the imagination, making learning inspirational and relevant to the needs of every individual. As a school we aspire to ignite a passion for life-long learning and to develop great thinkers who embrace challenges. Our curriculum ensures that we promote curiosity, enthusiasm and independence. All of the above is based upon a bedrock of mutual respect, tolerance and empathy. We aim to promote children’s roles in both the local and global community.

Our most recent Ofsted grading was good and the report stated that ‘pupils are confident to share their ideas and justify their opinions’ whilst ‘leaders and teachers actively promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, cultural and social development’. We pride ourselves in being an inclusive setting where everyone is welcomed and feels valued.

Our school motto at Walton is ‘Moving Forward Together’ and we do this on a daily basis with positivity and a happy smile.
