Fitzwilliam Primary School is proud to be part of the Inspire Partnership Multi-Academy Trust (IPMAT). Most of our pupils live in Fitzwilliam but we also welcome children from the surrounding areas.
The school grounds consist of separate Early Years Foundation Stage indoor and outdoor provision, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 outdoor playgrounds, an extensive playing field and a large forest school and den building area. The large school field hosts an outdoor reading and writing shed, tyre park and a trim trail.
We pride ourselves on providing an exciting and enriched curriculum for our pupils, including visits and visitors to extend their experiences and enable them to know more, understand more and remember more. We aim to work together collaboratively with parents and carers and there are a number of events throughout the year for parents and carers to experience learning in action.
Interwoven throughout our curriculum and ethos, are our core values that allow children to develop an understanding of themselves, appreciate the impact they have on other people and on the world in which they live and become respectful and responsible members of the modern global community. Additionally, we endeavour to support children’s development of resilience which will enable them to be prepared for the next phases of their learning journey and overcome the challenges they will face in their lives.
Each week we focus on a different core value and share these in our assemblies, in our classrooms and around the school. Where children are seen demonstrating these values, they are recognised which encourages them to share and celebrate their efforts and achievements.
Fitzwilliam Primary is proud to work with West Yorkshire Police and Wakefield Council as an Operation Encompass School. Please click on link for more information. https://www.operationencompass.org.
