friendly atmosphere of mutual respect and trust, where all are valued, challenged, supported, nurtured and their individual needs, talents and abilities recognised.

Children are at the heart of all we believe in education. We have high expectations of all pupils and ensure that each child reaches his/her maximum potential. Wharton Church of England Primary School gives all its pupils the chance to be well taught, well mannered and well behaved.
"Pupils enter school happily, and end the day with a smile on their face, because they feel safe, enjoy their learning and know their views are valued."
RESPONSE TO CONSULTATION TO LOWER THE AGE RANGE

The Governing Body restate their commitment to all through education for all pupils but due to recent significant changes in School Leadership, Governance and forthcoming uncertainty in the political landscape, we wish to continue to work with Start Well Learning as the nursery provider.
Therefore the proposal to lower the age range in 2018 will not take place at this time.
We hope the school’s relationship with Start Well Learning will continue to thrive for the benefit of our children and families.
We are a large, two form entry, Church of England Primary School, set in extensive grounds, in Winsford, Cheshire. The original school building was built in 1998 for Wharton C.E. Junior School and has been recently extended and developed to open as a Primary school in September 2010. The building provides purposeful, well equipped classrooms which offer the opportunity for an engaging learning environment, within which children are happy, motivated and challenged.

The school has a warm, friendly atmosphere, where Christian values underpin all aspects of school life. Children at Wharton Church of England Primary School, thrive in a warm and

Wharton Pupils help to solve a crime!
Three pupils from Key Stage 2 took part in a criminal investigation at Kings school in Chester last Friday. On arrival they discovered a crime scene, which highlighted a missing object... Their most expensive silver trophy!
Adam, Joseph and Robin soon began their investigation after discovering the culprit had left behind a footprint along with an inky handkerchief. The staff at Kings school were overjoyed when they uncovered the culprit, Dr Cooke.
A huge well done to our forensic scientists! I'm sure Cheshire Police will be calling on you for some help in the near future!

Thank You!
The London Marathon is over for another year and so is my fundraising. I completed the race in a time of 4 hours and 40 minutes, which I was satisfied with. The total amount raised for the Neuromuscular Centre in Winsford is £1683.50. I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who sponsored and supported me over the last few months in the lead up to the race. I won't say "never again" but I think I'll take a break from it next year!

John Jones Presentation
Since September these six children have worked hard on an idea for school improvement. The children have researched higher order thinking skills and led a research project to see if children and staff are aware of them and encouraging their use in the classroom. Mr John Jones, who has taught them the research skills, was very impressed by their hard-work and effort.

Skype video to the Arctic
Today Year 5 were very fortunate to hold a skype video call with a scientist working in The Arctic. Bianca Perren is a paleocologist researching the effects of climate change. She answered the children's questions which ranged from - What kind of food do you eat? to how can you see climate change? It was a great experience for all involved. Special thanks to Mr Fitz-gibbons who arranged a camera and skype access and Chris the technician who checked everything was ok on the day.

Great British Athletes Visit Wharton!
This week we were fortunate enough to have two Great British athletes visit our school and teach a P.E. lesson to every class.

Then on Wednesday we have had Abigail Irozuru, a track and field athlete who specialises in the long jump. The children thoroughly enjoyed meeting them both and taking part in their P.E. sessions.

Children and staff have worked hard on improving geography here at Wharton.
