I feel privileged to have the responsibility for the education and care of the children at John Wycliffe Primary School.  We are a happy, inclusive school,  where an enthusiastic and talented staff works hard to meet the individual needs of the children, using a range of strategies to support their learning effectively.   

At John Wycliffe, we are passionate about teaching and learning and believe in educating the whole child, both academically and personally. We celebrate success in a variety of ways, including :

  • Wyck rewards,
  • Character Muscle Awards - children are selected for demonstrating the Character Muscle of the week;
  • ARKs - Acts of Random Kindness;
  • Phone-home Friday - one child is chosen each week for having an outstanding attitude to school life; and,
  • John Wycliffe Citizenship Award  - by contributing to life at JWPS in a wide variety of ways.

We are passionate about making learning relevant, fun, practical and memorable, providing valuable learning experiences that meet the needs of all our children, giving them skills and developing their independence in preparation for life beyond the classroom in a rich, diverse society.

We expect high standards of behaviour, mutual respect and attitude to learning from all our pupils and ask parents to support us through the home school agreement, signed upon joining the school, which illustrates how the school and parents can work together.

There may be a time when you need to raise a concern about your child in school, whether about learning, friendships or to inform us of external circumstance.   Please speak, in the first instance, to your child’s class teacher, who will arrange a suitable time to meet with you and endeavour to meet your needs.  In addition to this, we have an open door policy where you are welcome to talk things through with me.

We pride ourselves in having a good relationship with parents and carers, as we recognise that it is through this partnership that we can best support each and every child; children learn best when they feel safe and happy. 

We hope John Wycliffe Primary School enjoys a long and successful working relationship with you and your child.
