South Wilford Endowed C of E Primary School

Spark the flame, light up the world.


Welcome to South Wilford Church of England Primary School- Our Ethos


Everything we do at South Wilford is about providing our children with an engaging and enriching curriculum that not only promotes a love of learning but prepares children for life in the 21st century and the opportunities that brings. We want our children to leave us as confident, loving and resilient individuals who not only open doors but open the heaviest doors in life with courage and integrity.


We were very proud that Ofsted graded us as outstanding in the area of personal development as this is something we feel is the very foundation of what we do at South Wilford.


Our Christian values are a golden thread throughout and our aim is for the children and adults in school to be at their best in all they do. This is so important to us that we made it our only school rule. We believe that if we are at our best more of the time, we can achieve great things and more than we ever expected. 


We have very high expectations for teaching and learning and work closely with Transform Trust, the Diocese, our school families and our Governors to ensure our staff and children have all they need to achieve their potential and beyond. Good mental health is extremely important to us and we provide lots of opportunities for children to build their resilience and learn ways to manage their well-being in a positive way. Every child has the opportunity to become a leader and we want every child to flourish at something they love and are passionate about.


A child starting in our Outstanding Early Years will have the very best start to their school life and education and we build on that through school with excellent teaching, outstanding personal development and through giving children every opportunity we can to ensure their time at South Wilford is fulfilling and memorable.


We are a diverse, empathetic and encouraging school where children thrive, immersed in the Christian ethos we have built over many years. We welcome children of all faiths, knowing we all share the same values and encourage learning from each other's varied backgrounds and beliefs. We work closely with our Faith Partnership schools- Bulwell St Mary's CE, Sneinton St Stephens CE in Nottingham City and Zaytouna school in Derby.


We hope that our website captures the spirit of South Wilford and the rich and varied experiences children receive at our school.  You are very welcome to visit our wonderful school so you may see for yourselves the special place that is South Wilford CE Primary School.


With very best wishes,


Natalie Aldridge
