A very warm welcome to Wittersham Church of England Primary School. We are extremely proud of our village school which is situated mid-way between Tenterden and Rye, set in an area of outstanding natural beauty and close to the church. We serve a range of rural areas and many families choose to travel in order to secure a place in our wonderful school.
Our children are treated as individuals and encouraged to become independent learners. We help pupils to develop enquiring minds, a thirst for challenge and a ‘can do’ attitude. Expectations for learning and behaviour are high and our extensive extracurricular and enrichment programme highlights our commitment to the individual. We aspire for our learning community to achieve high standards by equipping them with the skills to succeed and inspiring a lifelong love of learning. We consistently strive for high standards and excellent progress with every child at the centre of what we do.
As a Church of England school there is a strong Christian ethos and our school values of respect, kindness, self-worth/perseverance, forgiveness and love are promoted and embedded within our daily lives. Wittersham was judged to be ‘Outstanding’ in its 2017 church inspection (SIAMS) which celebrated the school’s strong Christian ethos and set of values. Ofsted judged the school to be ‘Good’ during its most recent inspection. The inspector described children’s experience of being at this school: “This is a happy and welcoming school. Christian values and a strong sense of community lie at the heart of this village school. Staff have caring relationships with pupils and know their families well. Pupils respond positively to leaders’ high expectations. Pupils want to do well, and they learn to persevere and not give up. They thrive within this trusting and harmonious environment” (HMI January 2020).
Come and see for yourselves, meet the children and see the school in action. We will be happy to show you around at any time.
