Dear Parents, Carers and the community of Winlaton,
Welcome to Winlaton West Lane Community Primary School where we believe we have something very special and all staff, children, parents and Governors strive to REACH FOR THE STARS! I am very proud to be the Headteacher of a school with such awe-inspiring children, dedicated staff and supportive parents and carers.
Staff and Governors helped to create our vision statement for our wonderful school which is based on a happy, inclusive school which exudes an ethos of opportunity for all: children, staff, Governors, Parents and the wider community of Winlaton. It is an ethos that enables our children to take responsibility and become a brilliant workforce of the future.
Winlaton West Lane Community Primary endeavours to be a forward-thinking school with high expectations of teaching and learning, behaviour and team work. We aspire to be outstanding in all areas of school life.
At Winlaton West Lane, you will find a welcoming and vibrant environment, with all involved taking responsibility for themselves and other people. We work hard to achieve our best in everything we do and always REACH FOR THE STARS!
Caroline Tetley (Head Teacher)

“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.”

Reception had a wonderful first week at school – enjoying settling into new routines, exploring our classroom and making new friends. We also began to learn new sounds such as ‘s, a, t, p, I, n’ and we did a fantastic job at recognising these sounds at the beginning of words. We also explored numbers, seeing if we could order them – recognising ‘1 more’ and ‘1 less.’ Take a look at how much fun we had!read more
Reception have been learning all about people who help us in school. Over the next few weeks, we will be looking at people who help us in our local community – exploring around Winlaton including a visit to our local library. We will also be having some visitors coming into school to explain to the children how they help people.read more
