Headteacher’s Welcome

Dear Parents, Carers and Visitors,

I am delighted to welcome you to White Mere Primary School’s website and trust that you will find the information on it both very useful and interesting.

As the newly appointed headteacher, I feel very excited about the possibilities for the school as we look to build on recent successes and develop and expand the opportunities for all children in our care.

Each child is unique and, by taking the time to get to know them and their delightful character, our aim is to offer every child the chance to fulfil their potential both academically and personally.  This can only be achieved by ensuring we educate the ‘whole child’, meaning we strive to offer both high quality teaching and exciting, stimulating experiences.

Alongside our committed and passionate teaching team, we are fortunate to have a very supportive and driven governing body, an active and successful PTA and, most importantly, a wonderful set of pupils who are at the very heart of White Mere Primary School.

Should you have any questions about our school, or if you would like to come and visit to find out more about us, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me – I would love to meet you and show you around!

Keeping Safe


The internet can be great fun. You can chat to your friends, play games and learn about new things. But sometimes things happen which can make you upset. People may say mean things which make you feel sad, or you may see something that you don’t like.

If this happens, you must remember it’s not your fault. TELL AN ADULT YOU TRUST if you are upset or worried about something that has happened to you. They can help you to report it to CEOP.

If you feel in danger phone 999 to speak to the police. They will make sure you are safe.
