Unique Selling Point - 21st Century Community

Unique Selling Point – We are a 21st Century Community School!

Windmill Primary School opened with six children in September 2013.  Our first parents felt that we were like 'a village school.'  We embraced that description in developing our aims, values and curriculum.

'We want our school to be a place where we play, learn and work hard and where we are cared for and looked after.’

Written by Ladybird Class 2013 (our first pupil intake) 

Windmill Primary School is the first Primary Academy in Wokingham. We are a new primary school in a brand new building, purpose built for children aged 4 to 11 years. We pride ourselves in being a small school where all children are known, valued and their individual needs recognised and met.

As of September 2017, we have a full Reception Class. Years 1, 2 and 3 classes are also full. We have 17 children in our Year 4 class – this has grown from only six children in September 2013. We will grow and learn together over the coming years and we want our pupils to be integral to the development of the school, its curriculum and its environment.

We view our school as a community and the children contribute to promote this. We place a strong emphasis on developing personal and social skills so that our children are happy, responsible citizens of the future who can actively contribute to society.

We have an inclusive school that welcomes the diversity of our community.  We work together with children and their families to ensure we all grow, learn and flourish. We also work closely with Wokingham Borough Council to meet the needs of our local community.
