Our aim at Wadworth is to encourage in our children the enjoyment of learning by providing activities both in and outside the classroom which help to develop confident, happy and successful individuals.
We feel that all children have talents which can be developed and that all can succeed no matter what the level of their ability. Providing equality of opportunity irrespective of race, gender, religion or disability for all our children, is an important aspect of our personal and social education policy which permeates all aspects of life in school.
The school pledges to raise standards through a balanced, broad, challenging and stimulating curriculum. An inclusive school where all are valued and respected.
The school underwent a full Ofsted inspection on 31st January and 1st February 2018. Following this, Ofsted has judged that Wadworth Primary is good in its overall effectiveness. Obviously, we are all delighted by the overall judgement that the school is now good.
I would like to thank staff, governors and children who have worked incredibly hard since the previous inspection.

by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values. We constantly provide enhancement opportunities to engage learning and believe that
childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge.

The beginning of term will see us focusing on stories, activities and events which support children develop their Resilience. At my assembly on the first Tuesday back, we heard the incredible true story of Apollo 13 and thought about the strategies the astronauts, and the people helping them on the ground in Houston must have tried to use to solve the difficult problem of returning to Earth after disaster struck and the oxygen tank space ship exploded. We came up with this toolbox of strategies: Stay Calm, Take a break, Ask for help, Keep trying, Work hard, Think positively, Learn from your mistakes, See the funny side, Look at the problem a different way, Be kind to yourself
