At Willingham Primary School, we have created a welcoming atmosphere where all are respected, valued and we work hard to get better every day, from whatever our starting point.

Whether it’s in the way that the staff deliver their lessons; the content that is being taught; the attitudes of children with each other and towards their learning; or the effort that they put into their work, the expectation is that we improve together. We work so that each day builds upon the last and leads towards the next.

We offer teaching, founded in sound principles of cognitive psychology, to support each child to achieve their potential within a happy, friendly, caring community. We are committed to working towards providing children with an aspirational, knowledge-rich curriculum and to provide equality of opportunity, which will allow equitable success.

The discipline that we engender, in and out of the classroom, is evident in all areas of school-life and we support the children to become the best versions of themselves. We aim to foster strong relationships with parents and the wider village. We see ourselves as a cohesive part of the community and endeavour to make the community proud of us.

Willingham Primary School (WPS) is at the heart of the community. We are a medium sized school with currently 351 children on roll. Our purpose-built school includes classrooms, two halls, a library area, ICT suite, sensory room, on-site catering, and staffroom. Our spacious grounds include playgrounds, a playing field, wild-life area with pond, quiet outdoor learning spaces, and an outdoor swimming pool. We also have our own pre-school on site – Honeypot Pre-School.

Willingham Primary School is a Local Authority controlled, community school.

Our Mission Statement:
The WPS mission is "to provide pupils with the knowledge, experiences and confidence they need to excel at secondary school and so that they can make the choices, now and in the future, to have a happy, fulfilling life."
