Get in touch


Wheatley Lane Methodist VA Primary School is an amazing place to learn  and I am proud to say that staff are extremely hard-working and committed, going the "extra mile" for our children resulting in happy, well-behaved children and high educational standards. The Christian ethos is central to everything that we do and our Methodist roots ensure "all are welcome."

So what does Wheatley Lane expect of pupils and parents?

It's important that parents understand that we are a Christian school, even if they worship in another faith or are of no faith. 

It's also important for parents to note that we have high expectations of children in terms of behaviour and effort and that we expect support from parents, with whom we foster good relationships.  We expect parents to work well with us, being respectful and co-operating positively with staff, supporting good standards of behaviour, bringing children to school on time every day, and supporting their child's education by reading with their child at home, and doing simple homework such as learning number facts or learning spellings. We make no apologies for being quite traditional in that we expect good behaviour and hard work from our children and we expect parents to share our expectations if they wish their child to have a place in our heavily oversubscribed school.

We will do our very best to ensure your child and  family is given all the support they need to flourish and thrive during your time with us.

If you think that Wheatley Lane sounds like the right school for your child, feel free to get in touch for a chat and a look around.
