We are very proud of our school and believe we have much to celebrate. We are a county Primary School catering for girls and boys between the ages of 3 and 11 years.  The school was built in 1928. It is situated in the village of Fitzwilliam and is approximately 6 miles from Wakefield.  The building is spacious, well maintained and offers an extremely attractive learning environment.  The school is built on one level and is surrounded by playing fields to all sides with extensive views of the countryside. We aim to provide a high quality learning experience for all our pupils. We want them to enjoy coming to school and to achieve success as independent, confident learners who are able to fulfill their potential and exceed expectations.

Good teaching and learning, including that in the Early Years Foundation Stage, underpin pupils’ good academic and personal development (Ofsted 2010). We work hard to develop pupils’ good spiritual, moral, social and cultural development which paves the way for their good behavior and very effective understanding of how to keep safe and healthy (Ofsted 2010). Pupils behave well and thrive in the pleasant and purposeful atmosphere created in lessons (Ofsted 2010).

Our motto is ‘working and growing together’ and we offer a wide range of opportunities and experiences in and out of the classroom to develop and inspire our pupils as young learners. We want to encourage and foster in them a range of positive attributes, skills and attitudes to prepare them for a rapidly changing world beyond school.

The staff and governors are dedicated to taking the school forward with the achievement and well-being of our pupils at the heart of everything we do. We believe we offer something very special to all our pupils as part of our learning community.
