Walton Holymoorside Primary School is a warm, friendly school where every child is encouraged and supported to achieve their full potential. Our school mission statement is ‘Welcoming, Helping, Progressing and Smiling’. This underpins everything we do to ensure children get the very best out of their time with us.

The school has a purpose built nursery which adjoins the main building and twelve well equipped classrooms. Outside the classroom, the grounds are spacious and attractive comprising: playgrounds, playing fields, a pond and a wildlife area. In the playground, a climbing wall and trim trail encourage active playtimes and our fantastic ‘forest school’ is situated on site.

Our school is a proud member of The Learners’ Trust multi-academy trust and is very well supported by a skilled and caring Local Board of School Champions, who support and challenge every aspect of school life.

At Walton Holymoorside we aim to work in partnership with parents to achieve the best outcomes for every child and ensure that children are exceptionally well-prepared for the next stage of their education and life beyond school.

Abous Us

Welcoming, Helping, Progressing, Smiling


Walton Holymoorside Primary School aims to provide every child with an excellent educational experience, which is enjoyable, stimulating and enables them to reach their full potential. Underpinning all this is our mission statement of ‘Welcoming, Helping, Progressing, Smiling’. We aim to:

  • Welcome you and your child into our school community and work together in partnership.
  • Help each child to develop self-esteem, confidence and a sense of responsibility within a framework of tolerance, understanding and mutual respect.
  • Progress, through innovative learning experiences which will enable all children to achieve their individual potential.
  • Smile, through sharing and celebrating success in an atmosphere where all are valued equally.

We promote an ethos of respect and empathy, where diversity is valued and celebrated – both within school and the wider world. Safeguarding and welfare is extremely important and pupils are taught the virtues of kindness, appreciation and what it means to be courageous. We foster open and honest communication with parents, carers and specialists and actively seek to engage with all members of the community in a positive and supportive manner.

Through our behaviour values of ‘Respect, Responsibility, Resilience and Readiness’ it is our aim for all children to leave Walton Holymoorside Primary School as enthusiastic learners with great self-belief and respect for others. We want all our children to be equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary for an ever-changing and exciting future.
