Welcome

Welcome to Weyfield Primary Academy!

Our vision is to provide every child with an outstanding education so that they can develop into confident young people with a sense of self-worth, who believe they can make a difference in the world. 

The children at our school are kind, lively and resourceful and deserve every opportunity to grow and fulfil their potential. We aim to ensure they all become global citizens, prepared to actively participate in society. This is one of the reasons why we teach the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and why we have adopted the IPC's nine personal goals: resilience, morality, communication, cooperation, thoughtfulness, respect, enquiry, adaptability and international awareness. 

In addition, we are a Scouting school. Our registered Scouts group is called 1st Weyfield and we currently have 120 Cub Scouts invested in 5 Cub packs. Including Scouting in the curriculum at KS2 creates invaluable opportunities for our pupils to learn in different ways and in different places. It builds character, provides social, moral, spiritual and cultural development and promotes British Values. Most of all, Scouting is about "everyday adventure" and having fun! Weyfield is the only primary school in the Guildford and Godalming area to offer this unique experience and I encourage you to come and see our Cubs in action. 

Building character is important but it is only one of our three foundations for outstanding outcomes: 

  • Academic excellence
  • Building character
  • Happy, healthy, safe

I hope you will take the time to explore each of these foundations here on our website. However, we couldn't possibly capture all the exciting learning that children are engaged with every day, so please come and visit us. I am always happy to show visitors around our extensive facilities and give the children the opportunity to demonstrate what they are learning. 

As the Headteacher, I am privileged to work with a superb team of teachers and support staff, our local governing body and the Kemnal Academies Trust (TKAT) to ensure that we deliver our vision for every child. As parents and members of our wider community I encourage you to visit often and to share your hopes and views about the school and your child’s learning. We are hoping that you take every opportunity to work with us. Getting to know the families of our pupils is one of the most wonderful aspects of my role and I look forward to welcoming you at the many events that take place here throughout the year. Don’t forget to look out for me in the playground, in the morning or at the end of the day.

Needless to say, I am absolutely delighted to be the new Headteacher of Weyfield Primary Academy and thoroughly look forward to sharing life’s journey with you all. Our children and families, staff and community, make Weyfield a very special place to work and learn.
