At Waverley Primary Academy, children are at the centre of everything we do. We teach academic knowledge and skills as well as developing the whole child, in order to prepare pupils for their next stage of education and to enable them to lead active and happy lives. Our values of Tenacity, Empathy, Curiosity, Scholarship and Happiness run through all parts of school life and create a calm, happy and hardworking atmosphere with a strong commitment to all pupils achieving their full potential, regardless of their starting points.

Pupils start their learning journey with us in Foundation Stage where our provision, both indoors and outdoors, allows them to develop their investigative skills, test their ideas and to learn the basics of number and language. Our curriculum then develops these skills further, as pupils grow through school. The knowledge and skills we teach through an enjoyable and engaging curriculum, ensure pupils leave Waverley fully prepared for later life, with memories they will never forget!
