WSWarmington School is a small school with a big heart set in the delightful Northamptonshire village of Warmington, in the north-east of the county, between the beautiful market town of Oundle and the A1(M).  We have five classes: Robins are our pre-school children who attend from 3 years and we make sure that they have lots of opportunities to work alongside the Hedgehogs to make moving up into the main school a happy and exciting time for them. Our Hedgehogs are 4 and 5 year olds, Foxes is for 5 to 7 year olds, Badgers for 7 to 9 year olds and Red Kites for 9 to 11 year olds.

Our School day begins at 8.50am. The children are registered before starting a morning of Numeracy and Literacy lessons. The whole school have morning break from 10.15-10.30am to separate the core lessons. Lunchtime begins at 12pm with afternoon registration at 1pm which signals the beginning of lessons in the wider curriculum: Science, Art, PE, RE, Computing, PSHE, History/Geography topics and Creative Mission. The pupils gather for a whole school assembly at 2.55pm and the school day ends at 3.15pm. 

Life inside the school is busy and engaging for the children and outside they can let off steam and learn team skills on a super pirate ship, a playhouse, tyre park, climbing wall and trim trails, as well as a playing field for sport and games. We also have an allotment where we grow vegetables and a wildlife area where we often see blue tits, chaffinches and blackbirds - and sometimes a green woodpecker comes to visit us, too!

What's special about our school - what do we do?

Ofsted in 2018 said that 'parents and carers are overwhelmingly positive about the school. They said their children are happy, well cared for and make good progress.' The report also said that 'pupils are exceptionally well-behaved. They are kind and polite to one another and play happily together.; We are all very proud of our pupils and our wonderful staff.

We make sure that everyone has a full and rounded educational experience with us - Hedgehogs, Foxes, Badgers and Red Kites have weekly French Lessons. Our teacher Mme Kernick lets us taste French food. In the Summer we go swimming at Oundle Pool. We have a specialist PE teacher, Ms Ransom, who works with all the classes. At Warmington you can learn a musical instrument, usually violin, guitar or cornet. 

We also play a lot of sport. Warmington School is a member of the Oundle and Thrapston Sports Partnership and we regularly take part in cross country, basketball, football, tag rugby, cricket and athletics events. We also take part in tennis organised by Oundle Tennis Club and cricket organised by Oundle Cricket Club. We have been awarded the Gold Mark for the quality of our Sports provision which is a wonderful achievement for our school.

We have a very active Parents and Friends Association which organises many events for children, parents and friends. The big events each year are the Christmas Fair and Disco and the Summer Fair, where the children traditionally participate in Maypole Dancing.

We are part of a Unity with Titchmarsh Church of England Primary School and share lots of exciting events together including our activity weeks and residentials to the Frontier Centre, York and Govilon.

We hope you will take a few minutes to browse our website to find out more about our lovely school. Please make sure that you read our excellent Ofsted report from January 2018 where we were again judged as being a 'good' school. We are committed to ensuring that our school continues to flourish and develop, giving each and every pupil the chance to get the very most from their time with us so they are prepared for a happy, confident and successful life!

If you do need any further help or information, do not hesitate to get in touch - the 'Contact Us' page has all the details you will need! The best way, though, to find out about us is to come and see us at work. Contact us to make an appointment - we look forward to welcoming you to our fantastic school!

During the closure period, it is essential that everyone stays safe by following the Government's guidelines on social distancing and self-isolation. It is also important that everyone stays safe online. Please see the updated guidance on our Safeguarding pages, particularly with the use of Tik Tok.

PLEASE SEE OUR 'KEY LETTERS HOME' UNDER 'NEWS' FOR A LETTER DETAILING ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE CLOSURE OF THE SCHOOL FROM MONDAY.

 

Yesterday, the Government introduced new guidance on whole household isolation in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak:

  • if you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started

  • if you live with others and you or another member of the household have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill. It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community

  • for anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14-day isolation period.

The symptoms are:

· A high temperature (37.8 degrees and above)

· A new, continuous cough

The full stay at home guidance for households with these symptoms can be found here:

· https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance

Government advice is that, until advised otherwise, all other pupils should attend school as usual. A full risk assessment is in place and we are ensuring that the children know about the risks, maintain regular handwashing and that all visitors to the school also wash their hands. As an immediate measure, we would request that parents drop their children off at the classroom door, rather than come into school for Early Morning Starters – a member of staff will be on the door to pass on any queries or concerns. Thank you for your understanding with this.

If you have require further information about Covid-19, this can be found on the Public Health England Blog and the NHS UK website and we will provide updates as we receive them.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you require any further information. You will find a guide on how to discuss the coronavirus issue with your children in our 'Letters Home' section.

Screenshot 6We are all very excited by all the Reading in school this term - so many exciting books being read in class with Foxes reading  'George and the Dragon', Badgers reading 'Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief' and 'The Orchard Book of Greek Myths' and Red Kites reading 'Holes'. Hedgehogs are looking at the theme of Sticks this term so will be reading and discussing 'Tap The Magic Tree' and 'The Wild Woods' and many more besides. It is brilliant, as well, to see so many avid readers working for the Reading Raffle! When you come into school, come and see our Reading area by the front door - lots of places to sit, read and relax!! Don't forget our new Reading booklet which we hope you will find extremely useful - full of hints, tips and links to get everyone reading!!

 

The booklet is available to download from our 'Newsletter' section!! Stay tuned for some really exciting Reading developments and competitions!!
