Windmill Primary School

Inspire, Believe, Achieve

Windmill Church of England Primary School

Inspire, Believe, Achieve

On Monday September 26th 2016, parents, Governors, children and staff met together with our Kirklees Learning Partner, David Ravenhill and Rev Gill Johnson to discuss the values we wish to see and encourage in our children. It was a great evening, full of debate and discussion about what each 'Windmill' child should have in their metaphorical back-pack when they leave our school at the end of KS2. We will use the discussion and decision made during this evening to reshape our ethos statement. 

Following the Vision and Values event, Governors' steering group met on October 6th 2016 and evaluated the school's vision, taking into account the views of all stakeholders present. Governors set a vision for the school. This was followed by a School Council meeting in which we agreed the ethos statement for the school. 

The School Vision

  • The school’s provision for pupils’ personal development, behaviour and welfare enables children to be compassionate, reflective and resilient learners.
  • Children will make exceptional progress as a result of incisive, responsive and exciting learning experiences.
  • The school is able to provide nursery provision and extend the age range of pupils to 3-11.
