“As Chair of Governors I am immensely proud of Winyates school. Its transformation into what we all now regard as being a ‘good’ school has been a momentous journey and our working partnership with St John’s Church School nearby, with whom we share our Executive Headteacher, has been the driving force behind many of the improvements we see today. I am happy that our children leave us with a very secure grasp of the basics of reading, writing and maths. The value that we add to the children’s education is increasing year on year and our results last year were our highest ever. Our teachers are high quality professionals who never settle for second best. Visitors to our school such as other heads and teachers, new parents and members of the community are always impressed when they see our school in action. They often remark on the children’s good behaviour and their real desire to get on with their work and do their best. So I would urge local parents to come and find out for themselves, as visitors are always welcome!”

(Ann Taylor – Chair of Governors)


“As a staff member and a parent, I have the unique ‘both sides’ view of Winyates Primary School. I can honestly say, I love my job, my relationship with the parents and the atmosphere in the school. When she was here my daughter was always supported and encouraged with her learning and I was more than happy with everything that Winyates Primary School provided for her. I am looking forward to many more happy years both as an employee.”

(Lou Scott – School Administrator and former parent)


“I like working at Winyates because the children are well behaved and so eager to learn. Everybody cares about each other and helps each other. We provide so many exciting and wonderful opportunities for children both in and outside of the classroom and it is a real pleasure to play a part in this. I enjoy supporting children to learn and discover new things, as well as challenging their thinking and promoting independence – a key life skill. Both adults and children have worked in partnership to make our school better. No 2 days are ever the same at Winyates and I look forward to going to work every single day. I think that our school is the best in Peterborough!”

(Clare Richardson – Teaching Assistant)
