"Use the gifts God has given you"
1 Peter 4:10
Welcome to Wantage C of E Primary, one of the three founding schools of the Vale Academy Trust formed in October 2013.
We pride ourselves on our caring ethos and high standards of provision, and we aim to provide a great community in which to learn, work, participate and flourish and actively look to develop enquiring minds. We believe that each child should be valued as an individual and their success celebrated, and that the development of respect and tolerance for diversity is central to the way we work and we guide all children in becoming more confident and responsible. We encourage children to lead healthy lifestyles and show sensitivity for their environment, to become motivated life-long learners and achieve their full potential in the pursuit of excellence.
We aim to provide our children with spiritual and moral guidance rooted in our Christian ethos. Our core Christian values are Service, Respect, Honesty and Forgiveness. If you would like to learn more about our Christian values please see Our Values page.
We have also looked to equip the school with the highest quality resources and opportunities possible to best meet the needs of the individual child.
Finally, we aim to provide a stimulating investigative learning environment and a broad and challenging curriculum. The quality of our provision is the reason behind our success and for the positive impact we have on our children. As OFSTED have stated: "their excellent enjoyment of school stems from their positive attitudes, determination to succeed and eagerness to please."
OFSTED and SIAMS reports can be found on the Performance page.

If our school needs to close due to the weather or for other reasons we will try to inform parents as early as we can. The teachers will put a link here to some suggested activities for children to do while they are missing lessons!
The school prospectus and application forms can be found in Admissions.
