Welcome to Weston Church of England Primary & Nursery School
We are a small, oversubscribed school set in the beautiful village of Weston, Hertfordshire. There has been a successful school on this site since the 1850’s and we are very proud of our place at the heart of the village. Currently we have five classes, with children from Nursery age all the way up to Year 6, in three buildings. One of these buildings is the old schoolhouse itself!
The school vision and values, together with our motto of “Learn, Achieve, Enjoy”, reflect Weston Primary’s ethos of learning through the learning of skills, creativity and fun, utilising a wide range of teaching practices. We work within a topic based framework because we find that children who are excited about ‘A Trip Down the Nile’, ‘Care of Magical Creatures’ or ‘It’s a Bug’s Life’ are fully engaged with their learning.
Although we welcome children from all faiths and none, we are a church school and as such we attend Holy Trinity Church in the village for key dates such as Harvest, Christmas and Easter. We also have collective worship led by our vicar or church leader once a week in the school hall.
We believe that we will continue to be a successful school if we work in partnership with parents; please feel free to come into school to share any concerns or indeed successes with us.
Weston Primary School is a voluntary controlled, mixed sex primary school. We cater for all children from the ages of 3 to 11 years, covering the Foundation Stage and National Curriculum Years 1 to 6. Nursery children attend for mornings only, with all other children attending full-time. Classes stay together for the whole academic year and the class teachers are responsible for curriculum work within the class, supported by well-trained Teaching Assistants. Within the classes children work individually, in small groups or as a whole class according to ability and the subject being studied. Our doors open at 8:45am and children go home at 3:15pm. After school, there are a number of clubs which run until 4:15pm.
Thank you for visiting!
