About Us

Welcome to The Federation of Penny Acres and Wigley Primary Schools
Nurturing ambition and inspiring success in a federation where children thrive.

On behalf of all of the staff in the Federation of Penny Acres and Wigley Primary Schools, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you all via our school website.
We all recognise the importance of the time your child will spend at school and are keen to ensure your child is happy and achieving his or her potential in a secure, fun and stimulating environment.

Over the seven years that your child will spend with us, our aim is to provide an enriched, creative learning challenge, which is underpinned by the essential skills of reading, writing and mathematics.

We offer a positive climate where children are encouraged to develop their learning, practise their skills and become confident learners through topic work and individual lessons. In our schools, we actively promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils. We uphold and teach children about the fundamental 'British Values' which are defined as: democracy; rule of law; individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs. These values are taught through topic work, Religious Education (R.E) and assembly programme. Our curriculum planning and delivery includes real opportunities for children to explore these values.

We believe a productive education arises from a fruitful partnership between school and families. Each child is valued as an individual and learning is personal to their needs. By nature of our size, we are a truly close and caring community with a real 'family ethos'.

I hope you enjoy learning more about our small, friendly schools through our website. If you require any further information, please contact us.

Kind regards,
Mr D Ratcliffe - Headteacher
