Whittingham Primary Academy was founded in February 2013 following the conversion of Whittingham Community Primary School to academy status. We are a larger than average two form entry school with over 420 pupils and 60 staff. At Whittingham we have a vibrant community with 17 different ethnic backgrounds represented.
At Whittingham we have a vision of passion and commitment to achieve excellence through outstanding practice and high expectations for both pupils and staff. These values are embedded in everything we do, as can be seen in our most recent Ofsted inspection:
Ofsted Inspection Report May 2012
"A very high proportion of parents and carers feel that their children are taught well and are prepared well for the next stage of their education. The inspection findings support this view entirely. One parent spoke for many when writing, 'My child really enjoys this school. The staff are welcoming and he enjoys learning and the after-school clubs... Pupils are extremely polite, confident and very welcoming. They behave very well in lessons and around school, and parents, carers and pupils support this view. They show consideration for others and work and play together harmoniously. Pupils are confident that they feel very safe at school and this is also echoed by parents and carers."
