Aims & Values
What are we aiming to do in Whinney Banks Primary School ?
The staff at Whinney Banks Primary School are committed to being an open, supportive and professional team who respect one another and work together to make a difference.
We aim to create a positive atmosphere of trust, respect and high expectations between pupils, staff, parents and other professionals.
We are determined to foster a happy, safe and calm environment where children behave well and become confident, independent learners.
We encourage children to:
- care for one another
- develop self-esteem
- take a pride in their work
- take responsibility for their actions
- strive for high standards in both behaviour and academic achievement.
In order for them to experience success and realise their potential, we seek to treat all children
fairly and have high expectations of each individual.
We are passionate about providing children with a broad, balanced and enriched curriculum.
This is delivered in a high quality, stimulating manner, using first-hand experience and practical
activities wherever possible.
We strive to build effective learning partnerships between home, school and the community.

happy to send their children and to which children are happy to come.
