Thank you for your interest in our school! We are very proud of our school and of what we all achieve.
At Wansdyke we aim to encourage all our children to achieve their fullest potential, not only in what they learn in the classroom, but across the whole spectrum of school life. We aspire to enable all children at Wansdyke to make outstanding progress and leave the school at least the national expectation in Reading, Writing and Maths. In the Complex Needs Resource Base we aim for outstanding progress against the upper quartile targets in the progression guidance.
We believe that happy motivated children achieve most. All the staff take great care to ensure the school is a place where children will be happy, whilst learning to express themselves fully and to develop as individuals.”
I am confident that we succeed in this, but would invite you to see the school for yourself. Your child’s education does not only take place during the time they spend in school. What happens at home is just as important. We aim to build a partnership between home and school so that together we can make this important stage in your child’s life as rewarding as possible.
