Dear Parents, Carers, Governors and Friends of WDPS,


I hope that you all enjoyed a happy weekend with your families and friends.


Last week we all enjoyed celebrating Sport Relief by exercising and donating money to a worthwhile cause. Thank you to all of our families who supported our fund-raising.


We hope that you continue to enjoy our website and that you check out weekly all the exciting activities that the children have been up to by looking at the Class Pages in the Children section. If you have any comments for improvements, please let me know.


As you know at WDPS we promote healthy lives for all children and adults as we all benefit from positive time spent playing and exercising outdoors. Research shows that physical exercise is important for mental as well as physical wellbeing. Please encourage your family to spend quality time outdoors together as it is a lovely respite from screen time.


Improving Reading is a whole school priority focus as all children need the skills to conduct research and also to enjoy the creative pleasure of the written word. As a family enjoy reading some of the book reviews which you can access from the homepage: 'About Us' then 'WDPS-Whole School Focus.' Let’s all work together to make every WDPS child a fluent, keen and resilient reader at home and at school.


Let’s make sure all our children receive the best wraparound support so that they achieve all that they are capable of in life.


Kind regards,

Mick MingStones

Head Teacher
