Wyborne Primary School
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our school website.
Wyborne Primary is a primary school that is happy, caring and secure, which values children’s contributions and believes that the key to achievement is high self esteem. We promote respect, trust, understanding and tolerance within our school community.
"Our child is encouraged to do well in all aspects of the curriculum and has a high level of self-esteem."
If your child was born between 1.9.10 and 31.8.11 you should be applying for a Primary School place now. The application must be completed by 15 January 2015. More
As the term draws to a close, Wyborne has to say goodbye to a number of staff, Miss Cromie, Mrs Webster and, of course, Mrs White. Bryoney Cromie has been at Wyborne for two years and has been a hugely popular member of Wyborne with both staff and pupils. We wish her success in her new job. Courtenay Webster has been with us just a short time, but we hope she will come back and visit us with her new baby. Pupils will also notice that Mrs Matthews, our Senior Midday supervisor for 21 years, will no longer be on the playground as she is retiring from this role. But we are delighted that she is remaining at Wyborne in her classroom role. But the biggest change at Wyborne is the retirement of Mrs White who joined Wyborne in 1991 as a deputy headteacher. She became headteacher in September 1999 and has led the school through huge changes in that time including: the building of two new classrooms, demolition of the old huts, refurbishing the school office, building a new nursery and making plans to convert the school house. She has successfully led the school through 3 Ofsted inspections. But perhaps the most distinctive feature of Sheila’s leadership is her passion for maintaining Wyborne as an inclusive school, a school which visitors recognise and celebrate for its positive ethos, its educational standards and its pastoral care. This substantial legacy is a credit to her. She had a wonderful party last weekend with friends, family, governors and staff past and present, to celebrate her successful career. So it will be with very mixed feelings that we say goodbye on Friday – sadness to see her go but happy that she can now look forward to a well-earned rest and a lovely long lie-in on 5 January. So, Sheila, don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened! And look forward to the future. More
Key Stage 2 pupils delivered a true reflection of the spirit of Christmas at the Carol Service in the final week of term. Ken Wood, music leader, had prepared the children with carols old and new and Steve Mac and his guitar pupils accompanied the performance. It was a delight for parents to be able to see their children in this important part of Wyborne’s Christmas celebrations. As this was Mrs White’s final carol service as Headteacher, the Parents & Friends had arranged for her to be presented with ‘Stars’ by every class, as a lovely memory to take with her as she retires. Well done to all the staff and pupils for another accomplished performance. More
