About Winton Primary School

Winton Primary School is situated in Bournemouth on the south coast and is one of the largest primary schools in the south west, with over 800 pupils. Whilst we are large enough to offer staff development and career opportunities , due to the way we separate our school structure we retain a "smaller" school feeling so that our teachers and support staff feel valued and part of all that is going on around them. At Winton we want to be a school that is at the heart of the community, a place where pupils are happy and engaged with their learning and somewhere that all children succeed. It sounds simple, but ensuring that it happens requires hard work from a dedicated and committed staff team. We want our young learners to be excited by the curriculum, responsible members of our school community and move onto the next stage of their education well prepared. We know that to be a successful school we must ensure that children make good progress during their time here and be achieving the highest standards they can. By so doing they will be able to go on to be successful in their future.
