My child has been really happy at WBPS. The caring and nurturing element of the school comes through so strongly. The teachers and pupils always seem like they're having fun. Thank you for providing such a fantastic learning environment and (together with the after school club) a great community. We're going to really miss it. (Parent Survey July 2023)

Staff at WBPS have always gone the extra mile to ensure that my child is happy and learning to his full potential.

So well deserved. Both Mrs Walton and Mrs Hathway have worked so hard through challenging times. With a brilliant team of teachers and support staff alongside them. It has always been a brilliant school. (Parent response to Ofsted Report - Sept 2022)

FANTASTIC! Well done to  all of the staff for your work towards this. I'm sure that Whaley Bridge will continue to flourish under Mrs Hathway's guidance and unwavering passion for giving all pupils the best possible start. (Parent response to Ofsted Report - Sept 2022)

It was absolutely amazing - well done to everyone and thank you for getting WB Primary involved in this. (Parent response to the Young Voices Concert - May 2022)

So much has been achieved in the recent months and it was a joy to see such cohesion amongst the team. Each agent and item owners understand their role really well and each taking their responsibilities seriously and thus creating a sense of belonging with each contributing to the development of the school! I could see that the team are actually close to the school staff, understanding what they have gone through in recent months and understanding what has been achieved which I feel is super important and all questions raised were pertinent! There’s clearly a good variety of skills on the team which isn’t easy to find. (Parental Observation of a Governor Meeting - Nov 2021)

The staff at WBPS are so happy and positive. (Parent - Nov 2021)
It's wonderful to see your posts on Facebook. It really gives a sense that you're in the community. (Parent - Nov 2021)
We couldn’t be happier with our school choice, thank you so much for everything you’ve done and are doing. (Parent - Nov 2021)
