Lower School

 

 The Lower School is based on the same site and enjoys the same facilities as the Upper School. In addition, in years 2 to 6 (Owls), French is taught by the specialist school staff thus ensuring a smooth and effective transition to the Upper School.

We currently have one Key Stage 2 class; The Owls. Owls are a combination of Year 3 to Year 6 pupils (Key Stage 2).

St Wilfrid’s aims to provide a caring and stimulating environment whereby all pupils are encouraged to develop their full potential. We have a happy school, with a friendly atmosphere: our classes are small and our staff are well qualified and friendly. There is a strong sense of security and discipline, which ensures our children acquire skills that will benefit them throughout their lives.

We place a high priority on pastoral care and all teachers take a professional interest in the development of the children in their care. Our favourable staff/pupil ratio ensures that all our pupils enjoy individual care and learn the value of showing concern for each other.

 

Our broad and exciting curriculum aims to develop good quality basic skills whilst fostering a confident, resilient self belief in all children. Our aim is that all pupils leave Owl Class with the skills needed to fully access the curriculum in the Upper School. Every child has access to a wide range of subjects to ensure breadth of learning. Each term topics are planned which link to the children's work in Literacy, History or Geography. A range of trips and visitors are organised to compliment and enrich the learning within the topic.
