Welcome to Wimborne First School

On behalf of the children, staff and governors I would like to welcome you to Wimborne First School.  We are very proud of our school ethos which is commented on by all visitors to our school.  We have approachable, professional and committed staff; dedicated and highly effective governors; supportive and caring parents and the loveliest children. 

 

Wimborne First School is a very special place indeed! As Head Teacher, I am proud to walk through the corridors to the sounds of children talking about their learning,

having in depth group discussions, playing games with each other and hearing them laugh. There is awe and wonder in the atmosphere and a real buzz is felt in each classroom. The children love their learning and I want to make sure that they have the best possible start to their educational journey.

 

At Wimborne First School, we have high expectations and standards so children can reach their full potential.   Children at our school are happy, enthusiastic learners, who engage fully in our creative curriculum.  ‘Children have a chance to discover, explore and challenge their thinking skills’. (Ofsted 2015 stated).

 

We believe the first few years in school can be the most important in a child’s educational career as they can shape your child’s attitude to learning throughout our school and beyond.  All children have different needs at different times in their school career and we are here throughout to support them.  We treat every child as the unique individual that they are, valuing their ideas, personalities and supporting their development as they explore their emotions, formulate their opinions and learn to respect the opinions of others

 

We are a thriving and happy school with a lot to offer. Highly-trained teachers, who are dedicated to every child’s development, an excellent maths and phonics programme, high quality resources, fun, laughter and a real sense of belonging. Together, we are a school community in which everyone involved is part of the jigsaw.  We value Personal, Social and Health education and this is embedded in everything we do, we believe that if we give the children the appropriate emotional building blocks then they will succeed in all they do and will strive for their dreams and goals in life.

 

If you would like to see more for yourself, please come and have a look around our school.
