Welcome to Waterman

Dear Parents and Carers


Welcome to the Waterman Primary School. We hope you enjoy looking around our website and seeing what our school has to offer.


Our school building is fortunate to be set within large grounds overlooking farming fields; it has its own sports field, sensory garden, play area and swimming pool. We use this rich environment to provide a broad and balanced range of learning experiences both inside and outside the classroom. We strive to tailor teaching and learning to the needs of the individual learner, creating a safe and stimulating climate to inspire and build confidence and independence. At Waterman we encourage resilience and positive attitudes to learning and set high expectations so that pupils can make the best possible progress, achieving their potential and therefore being prepared for their secondary education.


At Waterman Primary we work in partnership with members of our community to support and develop each individual. Parents make an important contribution to children’s achievements at school, and we nurture the relationship between the school and parents for the benefit of the children in our care in order that they develop socially, emotionally as well as academically.


In February 2015, Waterman Primary School became part of the Hearts Academy Trust. Through this partnership the school is able to draw on a range of expertise to enhance the pupils’ personal and academic development. This has also enabled the close working relationship between Waterman Primary and Stambridge Primary schools, allowing for a federation approach to be established. This enables a shared leadership that supports staff by developing networking groups to share information, responsibility and approaches to nurture quality teaching and learning. In the current climate where school budgets are strained it also allows for the sharing of resources, increasing cost effectiveness and ultimately creates an environment that benefits the pupils of both schools.  As part of the Hearts Academy Trust, we are committed to providing a happy, caring and safe learning environment for all within a values led context where everyone feels valued and grows in confidence and independence.
