Washingwell Primary School prides itself on being a school that provides a wide and varied curriculum which offers our diverse school community the opportunity to play, learn and grow in an amazing setting. Our uniqueness lies in our route to excellence, our commitment to getting it right for each and every child on an individual, class and whole school level. Our uniqueness is ‘us’.
By us, I mean all those who contribute to creating a whole community – staff, children, parents and governors. It makes ‘us’ special, different and determined to be the best we can possibly be for all those who share in our vision.
I am proud to be the Head Teacher of Washingwell Primary School and look forward to showing you just how great we are.
Mrs Alison Hall – Head Teacher
