We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing up to date information for parents, pupils and the wider community.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.
Our school is a good school, as evidenced by our latest Ofsted Inspection in March 2016 and by the continued feedback we receive from pupils, staff and parents. We are also a learning school and continuously drive to be better by challenging ourselves and the pupils. This enables them to develop resilience and a 'Can do' attitude.
Our school motto is 'to be the best that we can be'
At Whitegate End we take into account the whole child - we want our pupils to feel safe, cared for and know that they will be listened to.
We strive for our pupils to leave Whitegate End as caring, respectful, tolerant and enthusiastic learners who take responsibility for their actions to ensure they are well equipped to become great members of society.
We strive hard to achieve high standards in everything and provide varied opportunities through the curriculum and beyond for all children to contribute towards the life of the school. We actively encourage and support pupils to take a lead in caring for their community and supporting charitable work.
Our core values are Responsibility, Resilience and Respect
Our last Ofsted report stated that,
'Your school is an exciting place to learn' 'Pupils talk enthusiastically about their learning.' and
'Pupils relish the innovative approaches your teachers take to hook them into their learning .'
I hope that as you browse this website or when you visit the school, you will be able to see it in action.

To develop the well-being of the whole Whitegate End community & ensure the views of all stakeholders are sought & contribute towards the school’s improvement & greater participation in the school community.
For governors to improve their understanding of the school, so that they can provide effective support & challenge to keep driving the school forward.
