Welcome to Wylam First School

Welcome to Wylam First School

I am very proud to welcome you to Wylam First School. Our school has a strong family ethos where we work in collaboration with parents and partners to ensure that our curriculum is ambitious and that learning is challenging, relevant and fun, and fully prepares our pupils for their next stage in education and beyond. Wylam First School is a successful school and this success is down to the hard work and commitment of the staff, pupils, parents and governors.  

We are a 1 form entry school at the heart of its local community and as such work closely with community groups to enhance and enrich our curriculum experience.  We are committed to delivering a curriculum that supports: Personal Development, Knowledge and Welfare, STEM education and Creative Development. This is woven throughout the subjects that we teach and is enriched through: our allotment and outdoor curriculum, character education projects, physical development curriculum, community focused heritage projects and our delivery of music and creative arts. This ensures that we not only support pupils to reach their academic potential but also nurture personal and social development, helping each individual to thrive, experience success and be confident and proud of who they are.

We are lucky to be situated on a site with fantastic outdoor spaces for pupils to learn in and explore. This space includes our Community Orchard, our woodland and our allotment, along with our playing field and playground. We recognise the importance of the outdoors and how learning in the outdoors can enhance and improve the curriculum. All pupils from Nursery to Y4 have dedicated outdoor learning time each week where they complete work on their Wild Passport. All classes are encouraged to use the outdoors whenever appropropriate; you will see lots of examples of this throughout the website.
