Headteacher Message Friday 15th September 2023

Well that was the first full week back and already there is a lot going on. The Year 6 children have spent the week at Arete enjoying a range of outdoor adventure activities. From the photos on the school website and Facebook Page it looks like they have had a great time.

The Year 5 children all visited Wenlock Pottery to make some tiles to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the opening of the school. Each class will take it in turns over the coming weeks to visit and create their unique individual tile. I’m sure the final display will look fantastic.

Mrs Furber and Mrs Steele both attended the Autumn term sports seminar on Thursday. This is when local schools meet to put together a timetable for sporting events for the term. A final list of activities and dates will be published next week.

Just a reminder that the school times are 8:45am – 3:15pm and for the Nursery it is 9:00am – 3:00pm and the new email address is info@wps.318education.co.uk.

There will be parent consultations on Wednesday 8th November and Thursday 9th November. You can sign up through the Arbor app. If you have any problems finding a slot please contact the school.

Have a nice weekend

Headteacher Message Friday 8th September 2023

Welcome back to a new academic year, I hope everyone managed to have a nice break. In keeping with the typical British weather we get a heat wave in the first week of the new term. The new term has started well but we are experiencing a few teething problems with our new IT systems. The school also has a new email address – info@wps.318education.co.uk which replaces the old admin email address.

It has been lovely to see all the children back at school this week and they have settled back into their routines very quickly. The Nursery staff have been very busy over the summer painting and decorating and have created a lovely environment for the children. Just a reminder that the Nursery times are 9:00am – 3:00pm.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the school each class will be visiting Wenlock Pottery to create a unique glazed tile. These will then be used to create a display within the school.

The Year 6 children are off to Arete next week for five days. I’m sure they will have a great time taking part in a wide range of outdoor activities. Keep an eye on the website and Facebook page to see the latest photos.

We will be holding parent consultations on Wednesday 8th November and Thursday 9th November. Bookings can be made on Arbor from next week.

I appreciate that space is limited but could I ask  parents to be considerate when parking and avoid blocking the drives of local residents.

Have a nice weekend

Mr Litchfield

Earlier Start To the Day

Just a reminder that the school times will be changing in September 2023. The doors will be opening at the slightly earlier time of 8:40 and registration will be at 8:45. This is to ensure we meet the requirements for the length of a school day set out by the Department of Education.

Visit from William Brookes School

A big thank you to the Year 7 pupils who visited Much Wenlock Primary School and gave our Year 6 children some top tips on making the transition to William Brookes School go as smoothly as possible. There were lots of questions and the Year 6 children were very reassured to hear about all the exciting things that take place at Secondary School.

Friday 7th July, 2023

Headteacher Message Friday 7th July 2023

The transition morning was a great success this week with the children enjoying being in their new classes ready for September. The Y6 children have also spent time at their new secondary schools and seem a little nervous but very excited about the prospect of moving up. Miss Turner is planning lots of fun activities for the Year 6 children for the last week of term.

Next week the Year 4 children will be going on a three day residential trip to the Pioneer Centre. I’m sure they will have a great time and it will be an experience they will not forget.

We will be holding the auditions for Wenlock’s Got Talent on Thursday and Friday next week with the grand finale taking place on Tuesday 18th July.

Finally we are hoping to finish the year with a colour run on Friday 21st July, the last afternoon of the term. This will be from 1:30 and parents are invited to come along and watch. More details will be coming out next week.

Have a nice weekend.

Transition Morning

The Year 4 children enjoyed spending the morning with Mrs Howell-James who will be teaching them next year.

Monday 3rd July, 2023


Please could I ask that all parents make the safety of others a priority when parking or manoeuvring cars outside the school.

There is a designated “Red Zone” which has been designed to help children and parents cross the busy road safely. Parking in this area puts children at risk and should be avoided at all times.

Thank you for your support.

Changes to the start of the day

The Department of Education has set a minimum expectation on the length of a school week for all schools in England. This means that Much Wenlock  School needs to add 15 mins per day to the school time table to reach the 32.5 hours per week expected. To achieve this we will be making some changes to the start of the day.

From September 2023 the following will apply:

Children can arrive from 8.35am when the playground gates open.  Parents can wait with their children on the playground until the school doors open at 8.40am with the register being taken at 8.45am. All children will be expected to be in school by 8:45. There is no change to the Nursery times.

The school day will continue to finish at 3:15 pm

Full details can be found on the DFE website using the following link.

The weather was very kind to us this week with rain on Wednesday and Friday leaving Thursday dry for our sports day. Thank you to all the parents who were busy helping out behind the scenes, your support is much appreciated. The day went very smoothly and the children had a great time. The points have been counted and I can now verify that Air was the winning house group. Well done Air.

All the staff and children gave Mrs Nicholas a lovely send off in the celebration assembly today. Mrs Nicholas will be starting her maternity leave after today and we are all waiting excitedly to see her new baby daughter.

Mrs Nicholas is planning to be back teaching sometime after Easter next year.

Th Year 6 children put on a fantastic afternoon of fundraising on Wednesday to help raise funds for their end of year treat.

Good luck to the choir who will be performing at Shropshire sings on Monday evening. We had a sneak preview in the assembly today and they were fantastic.

Sadly Mrs Jameson is off poorly and will not be in school next week. We all wish her a  speedy recovery.

Have a nice weekend

The weather seems to be improving this morning so we intend to go ahead with sports day as planned. The ground is still a little damp so it would be advisable to bring something to sit on if you are staying to watch.

Volunteers for Sports Day

The school and children are getting ready for our annual sports day on Thursday 29th June. We would really like to provide refreshments for the parents attending. If anyone is available to help to prepare and help serve on the day it would be much appreciated.
