Orton Wistow Primary School

Orton Wistow Primary School is a popular, over-subscribed Foundation School on the leafy outskirts of Peterborough. We are a growing school and will eventually take 420 children in September 2019. Our PRIDE Code underpins all that we do, (Polite, Respect, Independent, Do your Best, Everybody Matters) and our school’s success is built on an ethos of a supportive and caring school community where everybody’s strengths are utilized.
Through effective communication throughout the school, as well as time for teachers and support staff to come together regularly, we ensure that we meet the needs of all children. All staff are given the opportunity to lead new initiatives and to have a say in how the school can improve. We regularly share expertise and best practice among staff by using their skills and talents.
Ofsted has judged our work with parents and carers as Outstanding and we are proud of this achievement. Our parents are active supporters of the school and involved in their childrenês education. Two extensive building projects have given us a stunning school in beautiful grounds. Our creative learning environments allow children to work independently and collaboratively to make discoveries of their own. Staff tell us that the reason they enjoy working at the school is that no two days are the same and they feel as though they are part of a supportive team.
