Learning, Inspiring, Achieving
Walcott is a rural primary school in the heart of Lincolnshire. Though only a small school, staff and governors aim to provide an excellent education for the pupils.
We pride ourselves on our positive attitude and work hard to overcome any barriers we may face, this is summed up in our mission statement 'working together success for all'. Walcott is part of the Carrdyke Federation along with Mrs Mary King's Church of England Primary School in the nearby village of Martin. Staff from both schools work together closely and share a leadership team and governing body. The two schools were the first in Linclonshire to try a collaborative approach back in 2004 and have been a formal federation since 2013.
Though not a church school we embrace a 'values education' philosophy which places high expectations on personal responsibility. The school is very inclusive and has built up an excellent reputation for working closely with outside agencies to ensure all children fulfill their potential.
We believe that children learn best when they are engaged in work that interests them, and we want our children to be eager to know more. Because of this, we increasingly plan much of our work through topics which we know will interest the children. We use film and other visual media to make lessons interesting.
In order to do all of these things we know our pupils need a quality environment in which to work, in recent years the school has systematically improved teaching spaces and staff areas to make it the colourful and vibrant workspace it is today.
