Waltham-on-the-Wolds CE Primary School
Waltham-on-the-Wolds is a small village school set in an idyllic rural location in the heart of the stunning Vale of Belvoir. The school is surrounded by beautiful countryside but is also close to the market town of Melton Mowbray, which has excellent national rail links. The school was built in 1844 and has a long tradition of providing a high-quality education for children between the ages of 4-11 in Waltham and the surrounding areas. The installation of two new, eco-friendly classrooms in 2019 and plans for further expansion in 2022, will enable us to meet the needs of the growing village as well as popular demand from neighbouring villages.
The school can cater for up to 105 pupils (increasing to 120 following the new build) and the school has wrap-around care with a popular After School Club and Pre-school, that received an Outstanding grade during its last Ofsted inspection. It enjoys strong links with the church and local community, as well as partnership schools; it is part of the Vale School Cluster which is overseen by an experienced Executive Head Teacher. The school has maintained its Good standard, which has been reflected in the grade awarded to the school by Ofsted.
We aim to serve our community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of religious belief and practice. We encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promote Christian and British values through the experience it offers to all our pupils.
