Having been part of the school community for 25 years and deputy head for 17, I am delighted to welcome you to Wickford Primary School as its new headteacher.
Our school motto, Working For Everyone, is reflected in all that we do; from our committed and caring staff and governing body to our supportive parents and enthusiastic pupils.
The children are at the centre of everything we do and they have a genuine voice in how the school looks and feels. We have high expectations for behaviour and standards of work, and offer all pupils a wide variety of opportunities to achieve, both within the school curriculum and through a varied extra-curricular programme.
Our vision is for pupils to become independent, motivated learners and responsible citizens which is evident as soon as you step foot inside our doors.
We have a split-site so children begin their journey with us at lower school then transfer to upper school in year 3. Children move regularly between sites for things such as assemblies, school council meetings and special events, and our older children support our younger children as lunchtime playleaders, reading ambassadors, sports leaders or anti-bullying amabassadors. Our spacious grounds provide extensive sports fields and playgounds as well as wildlife areas for outdoor learning.
Visits to our school are welcome and encouraged, and are always led by the children so you will have the opportunity to see for yourself how our pupils thrive. I am proud and excited to be leading the school into this new decade.
Mrs Ramet, Headteacher
