Wittersham CEP School

















Our Christian Values: Respect, Self Worth/Perseverance, Forgiveness, Kindness and Love

On a voyage of discovery; flourishing together in God’s love.

Our School Vision:

We strive to ensure that everyone within our community develops a love of learning and feels nurtured, valued and empowered. Our inclusive learning environment enables all to flourish and become the very best that God intended. Wittersham’s Christian Values weave throughout our rich curriculum, creating a foundation of support following Jesus’ example of love.

The Bible verse which underpins our Christian vision is:

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 New International Version

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Touring Wittersham School

On behalf of all at  Wittersham Church of England Primary School I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to our website. We are incredibly proud of our wonderful rural school and all of the pupils who embark on their journeys as part of our Wittersham family. 

As a Church School, our Christian vision underpins our decisions and actions As a result, the staff team and school community are inspired to ensure children feel valued, empowered and nurtured whilst developing a strong moral purpose which embodies our Chrisitian values of respect, kindness, self-worth/perseverance, forgiveness and love. 

Children at Wittersham are treated as individuals and encouraged to develop enquiring minds, a thirst for challenge and a ‘can do’ attitude. Staff and governors consistently strive for high standards and excellent progress with every child at the centre of what we do. 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 knowledge, skills, opportunities and experiences to inspire a lifelong love of learning. 

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 the 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).

Wittersham school 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 rural location is a key element of the broad Wittersham curriculum offered to children. We aim to utilise this at every available opportunity as we believe it further enhances children’s holistic development.  

At Wittersham Church of England Primary School, we believe parents are partners in children’s development and, along with our talented and committed staff working together as a school family, we can ensure that children are nurtured, empowered and successful at school.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit our school, or would like to know more, please do contact us: we would be happy to show you around any time.
