WELCOME to Wingrove Primary School.
Ethos and Values
Occupying a key position in the west of Newcastle, we reflect the rich cultural and social mix present in our area of Newcastle. Our school accommodation is a large, modern building with generous, natural, outdoor space and extensive sports areas.
The immediate surroundings and wider community benefit all our children as they study the National Curriculum. Our logo is an excellent representation of our school community: a world for many varied people working together.
We are all extremely proud of our school and committed to providing the very best possible education for all of our children. Parents tell us their children feel safe, and learn within a happy, stimulating and attractive environment. Each child is encouraged to discover the joy of learning and develop a lively and enquiring mind. This strong ethos is recognised by many visitors. In January, 2022, OFSTED described the school in an extremely positive way, stating, "There is a tangible sense of harmony and respect. Pupils behave extremely well. They work hard in lessons. They take good care of their books and make improvements in response to the teacher’s comments. Most pupils are kind to one another. Consequently, bullying hardly ever happens." They also added, "The last inspection of the school noted that pupils’ behaviour and attitudes were ‘stunning’. This is still the case. Pupils are very eager to learn, and many adopt a mature, studious approach."
Wingrove Primary School accommodates 472 children. Beginning in the Nursery, we offer part-time (morning or afternoon) places to 52 children. From the Reception cohort to Year 6, we offer 60 places per year. Our school is also the daily work place of some 50 teaching, learning support and facilities management staff. The team is supplemented, on a needs-led basis, by various professionals and specialists.
At Wingrove, we expect children to develop the abilities to question, to discuss rationally, to apply themselves to challenging tasks and to develop the necessary skills and knowledge for finding creative and practical solutions, reaching their full potential in all aspects of school life.
We believe that children’s academic success flourishes on strong partnerships between home and school. We, along with our fully committed governing body, work carefully with parents and carers to ensure that we are providing the best possible education for all of our children.

Year 3 have received a signed reply from @MarcusRashford after we wrote to him about our fight against food poverty! He kindly gifted us with a copy of his latest book and encouraging words to keep up the good work. We can't wait to read the new book.
Our School Council have made it their mission to tackle littering in the West End and started on Tuesday with a litter pick along Wingrove Gardens.
We had a wonderful time celebrating Chinese New Year with a special lunch. 🎉

A special guest joined Reception's Christmas party this afternoon and brought with him a sack full of presents.
All wrapped up and ready to go out next week. Could you be in for a chance to win the attendance prize? Have you been in school every day and on time? 🌈❤️👏🏽
There has been a very special delivery today of 472 gifts. I wonder who sent them and who will be receiving them! 🌈❤️🎅
Y1 have been working hard on their homework project on space. All efforts have been amazing, but this one is so creative. Well done to Sama and her family. 🚀🔭🪐☄️
