WSWarmington School is a small school with a big heart set in the delightful Northamptonshire village of Warmington, in the north-east of the county, between the beautiful market town of Oundle and the A1(M).  We have five classes: Robins are our pre-school children who attend from 3 years and we make sure that they have lots of opportunities to work alongside the Hedgehogs to make moving up into the main school a happy and exciting time for them. Our Hedgehogs are 4 and 5 year olds, Foxes is for 5 to 7 year olds, Badgers for 7 to 9 year olds and Red Kites for 9 to 11 year olds.

Our School day begins at 8.50am. The children are registered before starting a morning of Numeracy and Literacy lessons. The whole school have morning break from 10.15-10.30am to separate the core lessons. Lunchtime begins at 12pm with afternoon registration at 1pm which signals the beginning of lessons in the wider curriculum: Science, Art, PE, RE, Computing, PSHE, History/Geography topics and Creative Mission. The pupils gather for a whole school assembly at 2.55pm and the school day ends at 3.15pm. 

Life inside the school is busy and engaging for the children and outside they can let off steam and learn team skills on a super pirate ship, a playhouse, tyre park, climbing wall and trim trails, as well as a playing field for sport and games. We also have an allotment where we grow vegetables and a wildlife area where we often see blue tits, chaffinches and blackbirds - and sometimes a green woodpecker comes to visit us, too!

What's special about our school - what do we do?

Ofsted in 2018 said that 'parents and carers are overwhelmingly positive about the school. They said their children are happy, well cared for and make good progress.' The report also said that 'pupils are exceptionally well-behaved. They are kind and polite to one another and play happily together.; We are all very proud of our pupils and our wonderful staff.

We make sure that everyone has a full and rounded educational experience with us - Hedgehogs, Foxes, Badgers and Red Kites have weekly French Lessons. Our teacher Mme Kernick lets us taste French food. In the Summer we go swimming at Oundle Pool. We have a specialist PE teacher, Ms Ransom, who works with all the classes. At Warmington you can learn a musical instrument, usually violin, guitar or cornet. 

We also play a lot of sport. Warmington School is a member of the Oundle and Thrapston Sports Partnership and we regularly take part in cross country, basketball, football, tag rugby, cricket and athletics events. We also take part in tennis organised by Oundle Tennis Club and cricket organised by Oundle Cricket Club. We have been awarded the Gold Mark for the quality of our Sports provision which is a wonderful achievement for our school.

We have a very active Parents and Friends Association which organises many events for children, parents and friends. The big events each year are the Christmas Fair and Disco and the Summer Fair, where the children traditionally participate in Maypole Dancing.

We are part of a Unity with Titchmarsh Church of England Primary School and share lots of exciting events together including our activity weeks and residentials to the Frontier Centre, York and Govilon.

We hope you will take a few minutes to browse our website to find out more about our lovely school. Please make sure that you read our excellent Ofsted report from January 2018 where we were again judged as being a 'good' school. We are committed to ensuring that our school continues to flourish and develop, giving each and every pupil the chance to get the very most from their time with us so they are prepared for a happy, confident and successful life!

If you do need any further help or information, do not hesitate to get in touch - the 'Contact Us' page has all the details you will need! The best way, though, to find out about us is to come and see us at work. Contact us to make an appointment - we look forward to welcoming you to our fantastic school!

We are all excited to be back in school and to be learning again - we're also really excited about our new library! Normally, parents would be able to come into school to see it for themselves but, of course, we are not allowing visitors into school at present so we hope the pictures below give you an idea of how great it is looking! We also have lots of great new books to add to the shelves so it's going to look even better very soon.

We would like to thank the PFA for raising the money and buying the units and books for us - thank you as well to Miss Guy for her great work in sorting out the shelving units, Mr Carlyle for moving all of the books to their new homes and Miss Aldous for organising our library revamp!

It's great!! Happy Reading, everyone!

Hello everyone,

Thank you for looking on our website and for supporting our school.  There have been a few changes and we are loving our new library and our new outdoor area for Hedgehogs - it's all looking great. Thank you to all of the staff who helped organise the changes to our learning spaces - it's brilliant! We have been contributing towards the annual Macmillan Coffee Morning this year - we can't do quite the same this year as we normally do so we all have worn our own clothes and donated some money for this brilliant cause! Thank you for helping to support our fund-raising efforts!

Our pick-up times have changed. Red Kites and Badgers can be collected from their classroom door at 3pm, Foxes at 3.05pm and Hedgehogs at 3.15pm. Please use the one-way system as before. Robins can be collected from the car park entrance at 3pm each day. Morning drop-off times for everyone remain the same.

Please note that, due to the operation of our separate Key Stage bubbles, places at both Breakfast Club and Afterschool Club are limited. We can, therefore, only accept pupils who have pre-booked places. Please ensure that you have sent a completed booking form to Miss Guy, otherwise we will unfortunately not be able to admit your child to Wraparound Care. Thank you for your understanding.

A reminder, as well, that pupils should not come to school if they, or anyone in their household, are displaying any symptoms of Covid-19.

New for September 23rd - please see our 'Letters Home' for a letter from Public Health England.

And this week's housepoints....

Just a reminder that pupils should come in their PE kit on PE days and uniform for the rest of the week.Thank you again for supporting Warmington School and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Mr Carlyle, Miss Aldous and all the Warmington staff team.

 

We are aware of a disturbing video that is circulating on social media at the moment, especially TiKTok and other social media platforms. We have gathered as much information as possible over the last few days as the situation has been moving and changing rapidly. We believe the video has been removed from TiKTok but has been and is being shared on other social media platforms. To support schools and parents Northamptonshire County Council have put together some advice on how to manage the incident and how to safeguard young people online especially if they are distressed from seeing the video.

The information guidance can be found under 'Key Letters Home' which is under our 'News' tab.

Do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any concerns.

 

Screenshot 6We are all very excited by all the Reading in school this term - so many exciting books being read in class with Foxes reading  'The Tiger Who Came To Tea', Badgers reading 'The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse' and Red Kites reading 'When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit'. Hedgehogs are having a lovely time learning about the library and choosing books to read, too! It is brilliant, as well, to see so many avid readers working for the Reading Raffle! Check out our brand new library as well - lots of places to sit, read and relax!! Don't forget our  Reading booklet which we hope you will find extremely useful - full of hints, tips and links to get everyone reading!!

 

The booklet is available to download from our 'Newsletter' section!! Stay tuned for some really exciting Reading developments and competitions!!
