Whaddon C of E School is a small Voluntary Aided Church of England primary school for children aged 4-11 years.
We are a small village school set in the idyllic village of Whaddon, rural Buckinghamshire; close to the border of Milton Keynes. Our setting offers children the opportunities to enquire, enact and explore both inside and outside of the classroom. Our children benefit from smaller than average class sizes a caring, holistic environment benefitting from strong community links.
Our creative, dedicated and experienced team are committed to supporting every child in optimising their potential and celebrating their unique talents . Our high standards and expectations are reflected in our well rounded, happy children and the high levels of engagement and achievement; across the curriculum.
- To be a Christian community where everyone can grow in Christian faith and develop an understanding of the diversity of the world around them.
- To promote the holistic development of each person and to provide the best education for every pupil, within a supportive and encouraging environment.
- To foster each child’s identity as a citizen of the world.
- To equip children with the skills to develop independent thinking and learning.
- To establish an environment where children have the freedom and confidence to take risks and make mistakes and which will clearly reflect the Christian values of our foundation.
- To develop personal responsibilities and life skills.
- To enable our children to demonstrate respect for themselves, one another and the environment, and value difference.
- To provide children with a broad educational experience which incorporates the National Curriculum, at the appropriate level for each child, and fully embraces outdoor learning, Physical Education, the arts, music and Religious Education.
Through our three core school values, we promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and no faith. These values are woven throughout our curriculum and day-to-day interactions, but are more explicitly explored through the PSHE and RE programmes of study, along with activities including: Collective Worship, the weekly Whole School Meeting, Multicultural Weeks, fundraising events for charities inside and outside of the UK and the variety of educational visits to places of worship of major world faiths.
