Welcome to Whaplode C of E Primary School

We are proud to welcome you to Whaplode Church of England Primary School.

As a Church of England primary school within the Diocese of Lincoln, our values are rooted and grounded in the Christian faith. We aim to develop pupils as life long learners within a Christian context. We base all we do around the Parable of the Lost Sheep, which tells us that each individual is valued by God, even the troublesome ones who may get lost along the way. We recognise that if each is valued by God, then it is our duty to give each child the very best and to allow each one to flourish. (Matthew 18, Luke 15)

As a school we enable our children to be the best that they can be, through our vision of “Inspire Believe Achieve”.

We teach respect and kindness for all, whilst encouraging our children to show compassion to others, to show forgiveness to all, and to face challenges with hope, courage and perseverance.

At Whaplode Church of England Primary School, our children have access to a rich and creative curriculum which prepares them for the opportunities and challenges of the 21st century and raises aspirations.

At our school, we provide our children with the knowledge and skills they need in order to succeed within an ever-changing society, helping them to know and remember more.  As well as enabling them to develop a depth of knowledge across a range of subjects, we look to nurture within them the ability to think critically, questioning the views of others whilst building, evidencing and articulating their own.  Our curriculum was designed to respond to the needs of learners and their interests by enhancing learning experiences and raising awareness from the local area to national and global arenas. Thus, we will develop outward looking pupils who are able to engage in learning about themselves and have an understanding of the wider world and its complex cultures.

At this school, we place a high priority on ensuring that both children’s physical and mental wellbeing are met. These areas are as valued and important as academic development as we understand that children will not be successful learners unless they are emotionally secure. This is supported through our detailed PSHE curriculum, as well as our Forest School learning.

Please follow the links to find out all you need to know about life at our school, the teachers, pupils and curriculum. Keep your eye on our Newsletters and Diary pages which will bring you up-to-date with school events and all those important dates for your diaries.

Please see our Contact Information page for all the ways to get in touch with us. We hope you enjoy our website. If you do, why not leave a comment on our twitter account.

Do enjoy your visit, and we hope to see you back again soon.

Tesco Community Grant

We are delighted to announce that the Whaplode Swimming Pool Fund was successful in the Tesco Community Grant scheme and came 1st by collecting the most blue tokens in the Holbeach store.  The swimming pool fund will receive £1500.00 from Tesco which will go towards a new roof, hopefully in 2023. 

We would like to say a huge thank you to all who supported us by adding the tokens to our pot each time they shopped and also spreading the word amongst family and friends.  We are a small committee and are very grateful for all who help us with fundraising.  With your continued support our children will continue to have the amazing facility of a swimming pool at the school.  

Thank you.
