Water Hall Primary school is currently part of Lakes Academies Trust. We are situated on the Lakes Estate in Bletchley and we work hard on values, emotional engagement and mental health. We have a dedicated and experienced staff across the school.
Our school is an award winning school design built in 2008 on the site of the old school. We have a 48 place Nursery for 3 and 4 year olds, offering both 15 and 30 hours funded places. Our main school is for Reception through to Year 6. We take pride in our school and work hard to keep it maintained to a high standard.
Our school is structured into phases:
- Foundation – Nursery and Reception
- Phase 1/2 – 3 classes of mixed Year 1 and 2 children (Windermere, Thames and Medway)
- Phase 3/4 – 3 classes of mixed Year 3 and 4 children (Blenheim, Woburn and Windsor)
- Phase 5/6 – 3 classes of mixed Year 5 and 6 children (Buckingham, Warwick and Edinburgh)
Our school has a PAN (Published Admission Number) of 45 children per year group.
We believe that in order for children to learn, they need to feel safe both emotionally and mentally and therefore we work to build resilience in children. Everyday starts with an MMG (Morning Meet and Greet session), this can involve circle time activities, talking therapy activities, relaxation exercises, Mindspace sessions and is tailored to the individual and the class.
School provides a free of charge and nutritious breakfast for children which is available 20 mins before school opens. Staff retain an awareness for children who may arrive late or not having had breakfast at home to ensure these children have a nutritious start to the day. During this time children learn relaxation techniques including breathing exercises and visualisation.
Our Family support team concentrate on providing early help to families. This can be with anything from attendance to Healthy lunchboxes. The Family Support Team are the key workers who pick up on the earliest signs of dissonance, absenteeism, trauma or other difficulties which may impact on children’s readiness for learning.
