About Our School
Wales Primary School was opened in 1876 and added to in subsequent decades as the school community grew. The most recent addition being our new Year 1 modular building in 2015 and the school is a split site consisting of seven separate buildings, standing in extensive grounds.
The school has a swimming pool, multi-use games area and a range of zoned outdoor play areas.
The area around the school is environmentally rich. The school grounds have an established wildlife area with two ponds, a copse of trees, butterfly bank, winter and summer meadow and teaching area.
The school has close links with the local community, including churches, businesses, community centres and projects, children make many visits in the local area and visitors from the community often contribute to our cross curricular topics.
Every classroom has an interactive whiteboard and has wireless internet connection. The school also has a large number of laptop computers and iPads so that children can access IT during lessons.
School Session Times
The school day begins at 9:00am and ends at 3.15pm; however the school is open to pupils from 8.45am for a whole school morning task session, which runs each day in the child’s classroom from 8.45am to 9.00am.
We consider punctuality to be extremely important and would urge all parents to ensure that their child arrives on time so that they do not miss or disrupt key learning opportunities.
All children must be picked up from school by a responsible adult unless the school has been informed in writing of an alternative arrangement.
