Set in 17 acres of beautiful grounds and woodland to the south of Dorking, The Weald CofE Primary School (converted 1/9/15) offers a wealth of opportunities in a wide range of learning environments. The grounds alone lend themselves to sport, studying the environment and natural world or a simple opportunity to enjoy the space.
The Weald, a one-form entry school in Early Years and Key Stage 1 and two-form entry in Key Stage 2, is characterised by its caring, close nature and strong relationships with parents and the wider community.
Values of respect, trust, responsibility, forgiveness and love underpin school life and are born out of its Christian heritage and beliefs. The school is honest about its desire to improve and its ambitions for its pupils on its journey to excellence.
The 'Weald Way' is embedded across all aspects of school life and is the basis for positive thinking and life-long learning habits: Be Kind, Be Respectful, Be Persistent and give 100% are core to the pupils' learning development.
Facilities include an ICT suite with computers and laptops, as well as video and still cameras, a spacious music room and two large halls - one used for dining and another for assemblies and learning. A dedicated sports teacher and music teacher enable and empower pupils to embark in a range of learning opportunities during the school day, but also through extra-curricular clubs including gymnastics, football, tennis, basketball, choir and computerised music composition.
Pupils' three-word summaries:
'One big family'
'Our grounds are great'
'Learning here is fun'
