Catherine Wayte

Primary School

About Us

Catherine Wayte Primary School opened on 6th September 2000 and provides education for pupils aged 4-11 years. We are a popular and successful school which serves the North Swindon community. We have two classes in each year group. The teaching team work with support staff and governors, in partnership with parents, to provide the best possible education for our pupils.

The school is named after the daughter of the owner of Manor Farm and the land on which the school is built. She was concerned that local children were not being educated and sought to provide schooling for children from the parishes of Blunsdon St. Andrew and Rodbourne Cheney. She established a school in Haydon Wick in 1806 to provide basic education for local boys and girls.

At Catherine Wayte Primary School we aim to: -
  • Provide a variety of appropriate teaching and learning opportunities.
  • Create a learning environment in which pupils and staff are encouraged to achieve their full potential.
  • Encourage self-discipline, independence and respect for others.
  • Provide pupils and staff with opportunities to build self-confidence and increase self-esteem in order to experience success and achievement.
  • Provide a range of resources appropriate to age, ability and curriculum requirements.
  • Create an environment where partnerships with parents and the wider community are encouraged and developed.
  • Provide an attractive environment with stimulating displays which reflect the ability of our pupils, are relevant to ongoing work and which encourage questioning and discussion.
  • Develop the whole child - spiritually, socially, physically, mentally.
  • Value the uniqueness of each pupil
  • Recognise that our children come from a range of social and cultural backgrounds and bring a wealth of experience to our school

Our vision statement has a high profile within the school and underpins all our work including academic attainment, achievements in areas such as sport or art or music, behaviour, contribution to the school community and health and well-being.

In January 2019 we received an Ofsted inspection and are delighted that we continue to be recognised as a good school. We continue to work together so that we can strive to be outstanding in all areas of our work. We are proud to be 'Many working as one, striving for the best.'
