Head of School's Welcome

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Waterside Primary School. Thank you for taking the time to browse our website.

At Waterside everyone is welcomed and valued; they are seen as unique individuals. As a community we work together, encouraging everyone to be the best they can be; pupils and staff. Pupils are supported in becoming happy and confident young people with the skills to be independent, motivated learners who value the joy of learning.

The school is committed to providing high quality education as well as serving its local community. I feel very proud to lead a team where everyone truly wants the very best for our children, and are committed to achieving high standards, ensuring children’s well-being and providing high-quality learning opportunities for all. Staff work hard to provide an engaging and challenging curriculum which prepares our children for future life enabling them to be aspirational, independent and creative learners. Every child is encouraged to reach their full potential and we recognise that each one is special and has their own contributions to make. 

Our school motto “Happy Children Learn” and our values of Effort, Attitude, Respect and Safety are at our core and are embedded into all aspects of our school life.  They guide thinking, attitudes and decisions at all levels and are at the forefront of the relationships we nurture and cherish.  We seek to ensure that each and every member of our school is respected and valued.

Our website is only a glimpse of what we feel makes our school distinctive. We welcome visitors warmly and I look forward to showing you around our wonderful school. If you have any questions or would like to book a tour, please contact the school office directly.
