About William Westley Church of England VC Primary School
Whittlesford is a beautiful village situated 7 miles south of Cambridge. The school is a voluntary controlled Church of England School of 213 pupils. In 2019, OFSTED graded our school as good.
Our Mission Statement is “To strive for excellence by enabling our children to fulfil their true potential through a creative and challenging curriculum within a Christian environment.”
We strongly believe that children are at the heart of our school and that our school is at the heart of the community. Our values, which have been crafted by all members of our community, are positivity, kindness, respect, self-control, self-worth and celebration. As well as striving for excellence, we provide our pupils with a strong moral framework which helps them to grow as honest, caring and thoughtful people.
During our most recent Ofsted inspection in July 2019, the inspector commented, “your kind, caring and happy pupils are a credit to the school and community.” He also noted that “pupils’ behaviour is delightful. They are polite and friendly towards each other and the adults who work with them. They listen carefully in their lessons and try hard to do their best.”
