Welcome from our Headteacher Mrs Panther
Welcome to Medlar with Wesham C of E School
We are a very happy school family, where children enjoy learning, playing and growing together. We recognise that every child is unique and all staff work hard to ensure that each child reaches their full potential in all aspects of school life.
Our school is a Church of England Primary School, set in the heart of Wesham village. The school was founded in 1880 and we enjoy close links with the parish of Christ Church, Wesham. We are on a split site with Year 4 and 6 being educated in the Pavilion Building next to our vast school field, forest school area, trim trail and sports track.
The children are taught in mixed age classes in EYFS/Y1 and Y1/Y2 with single age classes in Year 3, 4, 5 and 6. Mixed-age classrooms are beneficial for young children's development. Studies show that they thrive socially and emotionally. They can generate a family of learners who support and care for one another, just like in our single aged classes. Whatever the class, learning is personalised so that it meets the needs of each individual child.
Our high expectations and high standards are combined with a sense of creativity, excellence and enjoyment. Our vision is for all children to develop a real love of learning, thirst for knowledge and a care and concern for each other. Our school motto “More Than I am” is at the heart of all we do, encouraging and guiding everyone in our school family to be the best that they can be!
I feel incredibly privileged to lead our happy school, and support our wider community as part of a dedicated team where, home and school work together to secure the best outcomes for all our children.
Everyday is Open Day at Wesham C of E and we would love to show your around our school, introduce you to our children and staff and to our vast school grounds and new outdoor provision for EYFS.
