Welcome from the Head teacher Mrs Debi Bailey.
Our school motto is “Together we make a difference.” and I am very proud to be the head teacher of such a vibrant, forward thinking school which truly believes this.
Walkergate Community School is a true community primary school. Our aim is to make sure that every child does the best they possibly can. To achieve this, we work in partnership with all of our families and schools in the local community. We have the highest expectations of behaviour and work really hard to ensure our school is a safe, happy environment.
We are a unique primary school with a real history. There has been a school on this site since 1918. Walkergate Community School is lucky enough to have generations of families coming through which helps to create the real sense of community we have. Our school is the heart of community; to achieve this we work closely with our neighbours. We offer individual support to our families and will always go the extra mile.
We are so lucky to have a brand new building. In 2009 we moved into our new school on the site of the old school. We now have a school built for learning in 21st Century. We have a set of core VALUES which we promote and celebrate. They are: Responsibility, Respect and Resilience. We believe that these values are what we all need to live by to be responsible citizens.
What makes us special?
We have an active student voice, RUMAD– curriculum, extended schools agenda, Every Child Matters focus and a huge range of before, during and after school enrichment opportunities. Our school competes in a wide range of sporting events and we promote a healthy active lifestyle. We operate a Restorative practice approach to behaviour management, where we encourage and support everyone to take responsibility for their own learning. As part of our aim to ensure everyone meets their full potential, we identify a gift, talent or interest for every child in school and we aim to provide opportunities to develop this.
We believe that together we make a difference.
