School Description

Leaders have maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You are determined to fulfil your aim of providing an ‘inclusive, secure and caring environment where the children can feel safe, well cared for and happy while they learn and grow’. In this you have been successful. As a result, pupils, many of whom join the school midway through the year, have the confidence to succeed. Leaders, including governors, ensure that Wittering Primary School plays a significant role in the local community. You are rightly proud of the distinctive family centre, which offers appropriate activities such as first aid courses, art sessions and ‘making the most out of family life’ sessions for parents and their children. One parent commented that leaders are ‘extremely understanding and accommodating’ of the individual circumstances of children and their families. This is a view supported by many other parents. This is a happy school. Pupils show respect for one another and behave very well. The classrooms, play and lunch areas are buzzing with friendly discussions and activities. Pupils’ personal development and welfare are provided for exceptionally well. Pupils value the extensive support that they receive from the day that they join the school. New arrivals receive a ‘settling in’ pack, which helps them to quickly become established in the Wittering Primary School community.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

Wittering Primary School Reviews

Average Rating:


“Great school”
"> As it stands, I believe this is the best school in the area. Being a child of the RAF gives the children no special privilages as the previous view dictates. The teachers are well-informed and understand the needs of the children. They keep them engaged. The school promotes healthy eating, good manners and an eagerness to learn in the children. The parents are kept well-informed of all the events and studies across the years, and the head teacher seems to have a great rapport with the kids.
“Good if you're RAF, BAD if you're not! (in my opinion)”
"> Not good at all in my opinion. Most RAF parents will say otherwise but it has been my experience that the majority of parents I speak to who are not military have had issues of one kind or another. There are the obvious things that everyone is aware of such as school houses/teams are named after fighter jets and lots of war-themed stuff being drummed into them, which is understandable, as the majority of children have parents in the RAF so they obviously cater more for them but the more subtle and worrying things, which I won't mention here, can be somewhat disturbing. I want to change schools but have now read that there will be a new headteacher so maybe things will change. I have lots of unresolved problems with the current one, my kids can't stand him, neither can we! Would give zero stars if that were an option.
