'By growing together, we become the best we can be'
Where Every Child Matters
Great Whelnetham Church of England Primary School is a warm, caring, creative school, reflecting a strong Christian ethos and with a dedicated staff.
We offer a full primary school education, catering for children 4-11 years old. We partner with adjacent pre-school 'Cygnets Childcare' (Ofsted-rated Outstanding) and the Bury Schools Partnership to give our children an all-round education and seamless transitions across their schooling.
We promote outdoor learning and are proud of our Forest School and its ethos.
Do make an appointment to come and visit us and learn about what we can offer your child.
I look forward to meeting you very soon.

A Church Primary School
We are proud to be an active Church of England school. The Diocese of St Edmunds and Ipswich produces regular information on and for church schools. The diocese offers support for collective worship, and explains more about 'Open the Book' which we hold regularly at our school. They also have information on our links with Kagera Diocese in North-West Tanzania.
