Welcome to Wickham Common Primary School
‘The school is a very positive place in which to learn,’ Ofsted, November 2013.
We are a school rooted in the community of West Wickham whose pupils achieve well across the whole curriculum. Within a happy and caring atmosphere, we work in partnership with parents, staff and governors, to ensure that children succeed in all aspects of their learning.
Headteacher, Mrs S.A. Taplin, with our House Captains
Our vision for our pupils is for them to become ‘Successful Learners, Confident Individuals and Responsible Citizens’ during their time with us. In order to achieve this we deliver a well-planned curriculum that is inspiring, challenging and creative, and ensures children take an active part in their learning, developing their knowledge, skills and interests.
We value and promote independence, thoughtfulness and curiosity. We firmly believe that every child can achieve, so we support children’s confidence in their own unique abilities and encourage them to take pride in all their achievements.
We hope the information on our website provides you with an insight into the life of our busy school.
