Our Church School

Welcome to Wycliffe CofE Primary School, where children are at the heart of what we do and where our committed, inspirational staff go the extra mile to ensure that our young people flourish in a happy and supportive environment.

Wycliffe CofE Primary School provides for children from Reception to Year Six, offering a sense of belonging in an atmosphere of inclusion, tolerance, trust and mutual respect. Church schools are a gift to the communities in which they serve.

We welcome families from diverse faiths and cultures, and work with them and the local community to provide the very best education and opportunities for all. We are passionate about making a difference every day and believe that our children should be active, confident and resilient learners who are inspired by their environment and the curriculum. We want them to aim high and achieve great things as we are a school where children’s individual talents and dreams are nurtured and celebrated with our Christian Vision being the roots on which we grow our daily practise.

As a BDAT (BRADFORD DIOCESAN ACADEMIES TRUST) school, we firmly believe that although we are all different, we all deserve the same chances in life and follow BDAT’S I CARE philosophy.

The school’s Christian vision is woven through every aspect of this highly inclusive and nurturing school.” Alongside this, “Wycliffe is a community where collaboration is key, so securing the flourishing of all.”

I would like to welcome you to Wycliffe CofE Primary School’s Website which we hope you will use to find information, learn about achievements and to celebrate the life of school. If you would like printed copies of any information displayed on our website, please do not hesitate to ask the office staff who will produce it for you.

This is flexible and caters to individual needs while developing a life-long love for learning through which all members can flourish. We nurture an aspirational family of hard-working, respectful individuals who work collaboratively.

Our Values

We shall achieve this vision through the promotion and celebration of our six Christian Values. Love, Hope, Courage, Respect, Creativity and Forgiveness.

Our History

Wycliffe CE Primary School was built in the 1870s and serves the town of Shipley and the village of Saltaire and the wider community.

Our school is situated on the edge of the picturesque World Heritage Village of Saltaire. We have an active parents and friends association, Friends of Wycliffe, who support the school by hosting fundraising activities including, fetes and events. Our grounds are also home to an outdoor trim trail play area (currently under development), garden and further outside learning environment. The location is ideal for environmental and wildlife studies.

Close links with secondary schools in the area, including Titus Salt School, Beckfoot Bingley and Bingley Grammar enable us to prepare pupils for a smooth transition to secondary education.

“Leaders have high ambitions for the pupils, and where pupils enjoy coming to school and they feel happy and safe.”
