This website is your window into St Paul’s Walden Primary School in the village of Whitwell.
Are you looking at us as a possible school for your child for next September? Have a good look around the website, including Mrs Foster's video for this year's new Reception children. Please call the Office to arrange a conversation about our school, including our Willows indoors and outdoors environment.
Our school has four classes for children from Reception to Year 6. (St Paul's Walden Nursery is just next door, and takes children from 2 years old to school age) As well as the four classrooms for the Oaks, Silver Birches, Rowans and Willows classes, we have a learning Hub housing the library, a children’s kitchen and a large hall which is used for assemblies, music lessons, school lunches and our Breakfast and After School clubs.
We know that we are very lucky that our school is surrounded by its extensive grounds, with a large field, a football pitch, a willow tunnel and a wildlife pond. Our very supportive local community means that we have a fantastic spider sculpture keeping an eye on our Growing Together Garden, where the children learn to grow and enjoy fresh fruit and vegetables.
In order to support each other, it is very important that everyone follows government guidance, including quarantining properly if you have visited one of the countries on the government's list - and cooperating with any contact from national or local Track and Trace services.
Please stay at home and make sure you follow this NHS advice if a family member has any symptoms of coronavirus:
Please download the Test and Trace App. Here is some information about it for parents and carers from the NHS.
