Wycliffe CE Primary School Values

Head's Welcome

Dear parents and carers,

Firstly, thank you for viewing our website. As a parent I know that choosing the right school for your child can be a daunting task; let me assure you that in choosing our school, your child will be getting the very best start to their learning journey in education. A peek at our gallery and most recent virtual tour will give you a flavour of what we are all about and once COVID becomes less prevalent, visits in person are always welcomed and encouraged.

We can be found in a beautiful part of the country, with the World Heritage Site of Saltaire on our doorstep and fantastic public transport links to Leeds, Bradford, Skipton and beyond.

I am in my fourth year of leading our amazing school. It is ‘home’ to over 330 children (our Wycliffe Wonders) and over 50 staff  support me and our children each day. Our school is also part of the BDAT Trust, comprising of 13 primary and 4 secondary schools.

We have a separate playground for each Key Stage to the rear of our building, a substantial outdoor area for the Early Years Foundation Stage, a trim trail, and a recently developed gardening area – currently being prepped to become an edible garden. Our teachers teach a fun and creative curriculum and we encourage children to develop skills and knowledge by ensuring ALL subjects are seen as being important. Talents and interests are promoted and supported – both in and out of school. We provide specialist provision for P.E. and Music and provide wrap around care (charged) between the hours of 7.45am and 6pm. NOTE: COVID may impact on this provision.

Our numbers have been consistently growing since I took up post in 2018 and I hope I can credit this to our joy of learning and our caring, inclusive, invitational Christian ethos as we promote and share these values with all members of our school community.
