Join our Nursery
Starting school in September 2024
Do you want to join the Watling family?
Come and meet us on our Open Day on Wednesday 1st November 2023 at 2.00pm or 5.00pm.
We will be welcoming prospective new parents to the school to meet the Head Teacher and the Early Years staff and to hear about our school. For the afternoon session, we will be able to invite parents to tour the school. For the evening session, we will invite parents to see our Reception Class areas only.
There will be a chance to ask questions and understand why we are such a popular choice for families who trust us with the important first years of their child's education. There is no need to book a place but feel free to contact us if you have any questions or requirements about the sessions.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
A warm welcome to Watling Lower School
At Watling Lower School our aim is that all children are happy and healthy and make a great start to their educational life. Children can only thrive when they feel safe and secure in their environment. This includes how they feel about themselves in the learning environment and so we place a high priority on developing a Growth Mindset and helping children to keep mentally healthy.
We are lucky to have fantastic children at Watling, who make our school such a welcoming place. They are kind and respectful young people who understand their responsibility to work hard in school, care for the environment and to be upstanding citizens in their community.
Our curriculum will not only give them a strong platform in reading, writing and maths, but they will develop their skills and knowledge in a range of other subjects. We aim to prepare our children for their future careers in an ever-changing world by developing their ability to solve problems, overcome challenges and being able to express their ideas.
We want all of our children to foster a love of learning: having the self-confidence to challenge themselves and developing a sense of self-worth from the achievements that they make. We want our children to work hard and to see that the value of their effort is worth as much, if not more, than outcomes that they achieve. The belief in themselves, combined with their determination means that they set themselves high aspirations for their future.
We promote a simple set of core values: being kind, respectful and responsible. Through these principles, we explore the importance of children to become selfless individuals with care and compassion for others; respecting everyone regardless of their background or the life choices that they make; and in how they can make a positive contribution to our society.
We hope to extend the warm, caring relationships that exist between our pupils and the staff, to parents and the wider community. We are very lucky to have a talented, friendly and hard-working staff who work tirelessly every day to help our children achieve to their full potential. However, the job of educating our children is a partnership between ourselves and our families so we place a high priority on forming excellent relationships based on mutual respect, understanding and excellent communication. Members of the team welcome children to the school every day and are available to discuss any concerns, issues or good news that you would like to share with us.
