Whitegate Primary and Nursery School



Our intention is to provide pupils with a high-quality education that engages, enriches, enlightens and empowers.  


It is our intention that pupils will be: -


  • Engaged - through a thematic approach, exciting lessons and access to state-of-the-art technologies
  • Enriched - by the very wide range of activities (trips, visits, extra-curricular sessions etc.) that are on offer for all
  • Enlightened - have a deep knowledge and understanding about subjects and situations which has been developed through reinforcing our values, delivering PHSE and encouraging philosophical thinking




Empowered - to control their life, claims their rights and make a positive contribution to society


At Whitegate we do not narrow the curriculum but are acutely aware that controlling your life and claiming your rights is difficult, and is only made more so if you aren’t able to read and write confidently.  Therefore, we empower pupils by doing everything we can to ensure that by the time they leave Whitegate, pupils can read, write and use mathematical knowledge, ideas and operations to a good standard.
