St Paul's Walden

Primary School


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. Unfortunately from 5th November until the lockdown has ended we are unable to show you around our school. Please call the Office to arrange a guided, Covid-safe (masked) visit to our Willows indoors and outdoors environment for after this period.


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.

New Fellowship Hall Questionnaire

The village hall committee work very hard on a very limited budget to maintain, and even improve the New Fellowship Hall. They have recently issued a questionnaire to find out what local residents would like of their hall. You may have seen a paper copy of this questionnaire around the village. But if you don't live in the village or would prefer to reply online, here's a link to the questionnaire.

Thanks in advance
