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."
We have a lot of people to say goodbye to in this newsletter, the last for this academic year. First, our Year 6 pupils who finish their school career with us at Wyborne and move on to their secondary schools in September. More
Others to whom we say a fond farewell are: Bill Gratwick – SENCO for over 12 years who is moving to a job nearer his home in Sussex. We hope his journey will be a little easier from now on. Lin Matthews – has worked in Wyborne for 22 years (we know, she doesn’t look old enough), latterly as a Senior Midday Supervisor and Teaching Assistant but has also turned her hand to doing the dinner money and working in the office in years past. Lin is retiring and we wish her a very well-deserved rest. Another loss to our midday team is Pauline Chorley – Pauline has been one of our “dinner ladies” for 26 years. Firm but fair, the children will miss her on the playground at lunchtimes, but she remains in post as a Higher Level Teaching Assistant. Ngozi Ukoha has worked here for just under 2 years, supporting children with special needs. Ngozi has achieved a well-earned promotion to a new post at the Local Authority.ach and every one has been a valuable member of our team here at Wyborne. We are sad to lose them but wish them success and happiness for the future. More
On the positive side however, this does mean that we are very pleased to welcome a number of new staff in September: James Searjeant joins us as the new headteacher from a school in Lewisham and Heather Tanner will be our new Inclusion Manager, replacing Mr Gratwick and Scotia Seto joins us as a new Y1 teacher from Canada. Jodie Carver takes over as Senior Midday Supervisor and is doing an excellent job already, especially with the management of the playground during the building works. Ms Monger and Mrs August have recently joined the midday team and we have three more lunchtime staff joining us in September. So we have lots of changes to look forward to in the new Autumn term and another successful year at Wyborne. More
