The principle purpose of Windy Nook Primary School is to provide high quality education to enable pupils to achieve success. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents/carers and pupils and we hope that you find what you are looking for.
We hope that our website reflects our endeavour to create an atmosphere of mutual consideration and respect regardless of age, gender, race, religious beliefs, disability, social or home background and family circumstances. It is a celebration of all of the fabulous work and activities that our children participate in. Please feel free to leave a comment or contact the school direct with any queries you may have.
