Welcome to Great Waltham School
Welcome to the website of Great Waltham C of E VC Primary School. On this site we hope you will find all the information you need, whether you already have a child at the school or are looking for somewhere for your child to start their education.
At Great Waltham School our dedicated team of teachers, support staff and governors aim to provide a safe and secure learning environment, where high expectations of achievement, behaviour and support for each other are paramount.
Our Christian faith and ethos guides all we do throughout the school.
We cherish strong, open relationships with the parents and carers of our pupils. Confidence in your child’s education grows out of the knowledge and understanding of what happens inside school. We therefore welcome and value the involvement of parents and carers in the life and work of our happy village school, offering many opportunities for you to take part in your child’s education.
