Welcome to Wistanstow CE Primary School
We hope that our website gives you an opportunity to share in our school life, our special events and celebrations. Whether you are a child, a parent, someone with an interest in the school or even if you just happened across our site by accident we hope you found the site useful.


Wistanstow CE Primary is a school where individuals are valued and helped to achieve their personal best. Children are supported in becoming confident and independent young people, who thrive on challenge, and are motivated to learn. All schools have their own distinctive ‘feel’ which makes each one unique. We believe that the ‘special feel’ at Wistanstow Primary comes from our caring, supportive and friendly environment. I am extremely proud to lead a team that is committed to children's well-being, achieving high standards and providing the very best opportunities for all in our care. Staff, supported by governors, work hard to deliver a rich and challenging curriculum; to prepare children for future education; and to help them acquire the skills and enthusiasm needed to embrace the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. Dave Tinker Head Teacher
