At Waterloo Primary we work to ensure:




A school where every child has the opportunity to shine and is prepared for a future of possibilities!

At Waterloo we feel that the school should provide the foundation and opportunities for the children in our care to become well rounded and capable individual members of a society which continually evolves and develops.

When children leave Waterloo we want them to be independent learners and thinkers with a range of skills and talents. We can only do this by striving to provide an environment for learning in which children are able to maximise their potential academically, socially, physically and emotionally. Within this we strive to provide a curriculum which is broad based, exciting and creative. We aim to be a school where children are taught knowledge, skills and develop positive attitudes to learning and to others. Where children become self-confident learners with a love for learning which will stay with them for life.

  • Have a collaborative and supportive approach to inspire and motivate others
