Key Information (DfE)

Wheatcroft Community Primary School was opened in 1968. 
There are seven classes in total including four Key Stage 2 (Junior) classes, two Key Stage 1 (Infant) classes and a Foundation class.  Class organisation is one class per year group eg Class 1 is Year 1, Class 2 is Year 2 etc.  The main school building has six classrooms, a special needs room, offices, an IT suite and a large hall which is used for PE, Music, School Assemblies and lunch. One classroom is in one of our two mobile units next to the main building. The other mobile unit is used by staff to run intervention programmes with small groups of children during the day.  The Bungalow adjacent to school is used for our before and after school club Wheaties as well as having a dedicated Speech and Language room.

The school grounds are extensive and comprise a Key Stage 1 playground, a Key Stage 2 playground and two large playing fields at the back of the school.  The Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 adventure trails were installed in April 2014. 
Special features of our school are the Computer suite, the Jubilee Garden, the Sensory Garden, the Early Years Outdoor play area and our new school allotments which have produced some lovely produce last Summer term 2018.  

We run lots of extra curricular activities before and after school including different sports and music clubs. See our School Clubs page for what's on offer!

In addition, we run a very successful before and after school club called Wheaties run by Wheatcroft staff from 8am -8.45am every morning and from 3.10pm-5.30pm every night in school.
