South Wonston Primary School Together, we will nurture, inspire, challenge and achieve

Headteacher Welcome

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your family to South Wonston Primary School. As a school community, we strive to make all of our members (new and established) feel welcome. Our belief is that close partnerships with our families are key to ensuring that our children are at the heart of every decision we make and together we will support our children to be happy, resilient and confident learners for life. We value the contribution parents and carers make in helping children achieve this. 


All of the adults at South wonston Primary School whether they are staff members, parents, carers, governors, support workers or specialist providers, are role models to our children. By respecting each other and by valuing each child as an active and important member of our school and local community we will encourage children to develop a sense of responsibility for themselves and a respect for others.


South Wonston Primary School is a nurturing community with happy, confident and kind children who are actively curious and make the most of opportunities to learn, improve and innovate. Our children are proud of their school and all the things that make it so special. We are very fortunate to have superb outdoor spaces, a fun, engaging and broad curriculum, our own outdoor learning area and some of the best teachers and support staff! As a team, we are committed to developing a coherent, flexible and enriched curriculum which raises aspirations, drives ambition, and secures high standards in all areas. Strong relationships and deep understanding of our children as a whole, means that the opportunities that are provided are relevant to their needs both now and in the future. 


We aim to ensure children develop self-esteem, self-worth and independence with the ability to work well together and contribute fully to the life of the school, making it an a central part in our wider enriched community. We want your child to flourish, and feel secure during their time at South Wonston Primary School knowing it is a place where aspirations and ambitions come true.


About the School
South Wonston School was opened in 1971. As the village of South Wonston grew, so did the school. In 1996 the school was extended through a unique partnership with St Margaret's Church which was built on the school site; however South Wonston School is a non-denominational community school. Currently there are 11 classes of 5-11 year olds. The school benefits from beautiful, extensive grounds and has a wide range of amenities. As well as the purpose built classrooms there is a large hall, a studio, ICT suite, well stocked library, two outdoor activity trails and community rooms. We have use of St Margaret's Church during the school day which is a wonderfully versatile space that is used for activities such as assemblies, dance and drama and music lessons.


Our Vision

To provide a safe and friendly school community where our children are encouraged to become curious, courageous and resilient learners.


‘Together, we will nurture, inspire, challenge and achieve’



We nurture our children, building an inclusive community based on respect,

ambition and achievement.



We inspire our children to discover, develop and celebrate their unique talents and abilities.



We believe that every child can succeed.

We challenge and support our children to be resilient and to overcome obstacles, equipping them with the attitudes and skills that will enable them to achieve their personal best and prepare them for the future developing world.



Through both ambition and determination our children learn to achieve by respecting the beliefs, religions and cultures of others, celebrating diversity and supporting each other to be the best that we can be.
