About Wick Primary School

Wick Primary School was founded in 1854 as Wick and Abson National School and occupied the site of the old school in the High Street opposite the Village Hall.

The present school consists of seven classrooms, together with an ICT Suite, a library within the reception area, hall, kitchen, office and staff room. We are fortunate to have use of a large playing field with swimming pool, one hard playground and a quiet area and tree plantations.

The grounds include a path across the school field from the main playground to the churchyard of St Bartholomew's, a sunshade designed by the children, gazeboes, a playhouse and a willow tunnel which provides shade on sunny days. Both playground areas have painted games designed by children and there are picnic benches within the quieter part of the play area.

Wick School is a Voluntary Controlled Church of England Primary School offering education of a high standard to children aged from four to eleven years. The understanding and meaning of faith is encouraged together with the promotion of Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils. The school is under the control of South Gloucestershire Council and since April 1992 has managed its own budget under the Local Management of Schools scheme.

Parents apply for a place at Wick Primary via the Local Authority. If a child who has a disability or special educational needs is offered a place, we liaise with the parents/carers, child, pre-school and other relevant persons to ensure the child’s individual needs are met. Whenever practical this is done prior to the child starting school.

Over the past few years work has been undertaken to provide disabled access for children, staff and parents. As a result we feel that the school is able to offer a non-discriminatory education for those with disabilities.
