About Orton Wistow Primary School

Orton Wistow Primary School is an Academy and part of the OWN Trust, alongside Woodston Primary School and Nene Valley Primary School. We are much larger than most other primary schools with 420 pupils on roll at present, arranged in 14 classes (two in each year group).

Our school philosophy is based on a strong partnership between home and school, which has been judged as Outstanding by Ofsted. We work hard with our parents to engage them in the life of the school and in their children’s learning and we benefit from their support. We have a lively, engaging curriculum which means that no two days are the same! It is part of what keeps us motivated and excited about working at the school. We are incredibly fortunate to work in a stunning school and grounds which is well resourced. Team work is at the heart of all that we do. Teachers plan their work together and work closely to share best practice.

We try to involve all staff in the big decisions and in the day to day running of the school and this helps staff to feel consulted and involved. School management is shared between the Headteacher, Deputyhead and four Team Leader Posts (FS, Years 1/2, Years 3/4 and Years 5/6).

We are supported by a great Governing Body and Trust who offer us support, challenge and encouragement. The Governors and Trust are committed to developing the team of staff and we look positively at continued professional development. Relationships between Governors, the Trust, staff and parents reflect the school's partnership approach.
