The Weatheralls Primary School

Welcome to The Weatheralls Primary School

A warm welcome to The Weatheralls Primary School.

We are a vibrant, creative and inclusive primary school in the East Fenland area of Cambridgeshire. Our children are friendly, happy and thoughtful learners who take pride in who they are, have a positive mindset and persevere in their learning. We take great pride in seeing them flourish, ready for their next step when they leave us at the end of Year 6.

Excellence, Enrichment and Equity emphasise our educational values and we aim for our school to be a beacon of excellence at the heart of the local community. We work hard to provide a nurturing and secure environment in which all children can succeed and enjoy their primary years. Everyone in our school community wears their Weatheralls badge with pride and we appreciate all children and adults as unique individuals. We adopt a holistic ethos that develops the whole child; the personal, social, academic and moral, taking time to consider the needs of each individual child, within a carefully planned, dynamic curriculum.

Our spiral curriculum is designed to help children know more and remember more, and is centred upon key concepts which are revisited across subjects and year groups and reframed and reinforced as they move through each year group. This allows children to make deep connections between larger ideas. Small steps in learning also supports every child to be ready for the next stage in their learning.

Our ambition is captured through our curriculum ‘threads’ of Agency, Culture, Democracy, Diversity and Possibilities which are key concepts that are woven throughout our core and foundation curriculum. Our school advocates Reading as the beating heart of the curriculum and the gateway to lifelong learning. All pupils enjoy taking time out to read in our wonderful school library.

Our Weatheralls Readiness Curriculum defines, teaches and supports the development of children’s character, sense of responsibility and citizenship through three pocket principles; Be respectful; Be responsible and safe; Be ready.

Our pupils learn to take pride in themselves and their school, understand their own sense of agency and contribute positively to their class, school and local community. We aim to instil valuable attributes such as gratitude, politeness and respect whilst nurturing their capacity for empathy. We believe that, as pupils practise these behaviours over time, they become habits that positively shape how they feel about themselves.

We are committed to a therapeutic approach to education and help children develop personal and social skills that will enable them to become valued and responsible members of the school and local communities. Strong relationships, familiar routines and secure boundaries underpin everything we do so that our children feel happy, safe and have a sense of belonging.  We use therapeutic thinking and coaching to ensure pupils routinely reflect on their learning and behaviour and strive for excellence in both.

Through their learning and experiences at The Weatheralls, children gain knowledge and understanding, alongside the skills, self-discipline, confidence and motivation that will enable them to become enthusiastic learners. Great emphasis is also placed on enriching our curriculum and we recognise the value of The Arts and outdoor learning opportunities to inspire pupils to achieve in all areas of their education. We work collaboratively with many partners in education including; Cambridge Maths Hub, Cambridge University Faculty of Education, Cambridge Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge PYE foundation, Soham Comrades Band, partner schools within Staploe Education Trust and other local schools to ensure we remain forward-thinking in our curriculum.

I hope you enjoy learning more about our school through our website. We are an open school, in which parents are welcome, heard and valued as partners in their children's learning and I would encourage all prospective parents to visit our school and see all of the above in action!


Warmest wishes,
