Supporting the children of Wideopen to be amazed, be original, be brave and be bold.

Mrs Ele Dobson- Headteacher


Last night at a glittering (virtual) ceremony two of our GCPS stars were finalists in the NTLT Star Awards. The awards have been running for 8 years and recognise and celebrate children and young people for being exceptional in different fields.
In Year 4, Lexi was a finalist in the Resilience Award- it was so lovely to see her and her family enjoying the ceremony as much as we did! Well done Lexi!

In Year 6, Lucas was the winner of the Leadership Award- you will see the delight on his face in the picture below! Well done Lucas!

This year there has been limited opportunities for our GFPTA to raise funds for our school. Please help them by joining in with this fabulous raffle. I don't think I have ever seen a bear quite so big, which has been very generously donated to us by one of our parents.

Look out for the the posters in and around Wideopen!



Please make sure that if you have changed your contact information recently, including email address that you update school.

It is really very important that we can get in touch with you at short notice.

Thank you

Exciting news!

We know that for many of our working parents, finding quality childcare for your children which is local and where you know your children will be happy and safe, during the school holidays can be challenging.

We might be able to help!

If you would like to register your interest for our new service, please make sure that you have completed the form and returned to school so that we can begin to contact those families who would like to use our service.

September 2021

You received a letter this week which explained the class organisation for September:

Nursery - Miss Cheel (Early Years Leader)
Reception - Mr Halliburton
Year 1 - Mr Irving
Year 2 - Mrs Wilson (Lower School Leader)
Year 3 - Mrs Cockman (Assistant Headteacher) & Miss Harrison
Year 4 - Mrs Armer & Mrs Banks

We will be holding our transition between classes outside where possible to help maintain our bubbles but also to ensure that the children do have the chance to meet their new teachers.

There will be the opportunity to speak with your child's new teacher before the end of term. You can help us to plan for the transition by completing the transition information form and returning it to school.

Thank you

Reading recommendation

"Farmer Duck" by Helen Oxenbury and Martin Waddell

This book tells the story of a hardworking duck, who has the very bad luck of living with a lazy farmer. The duck cooks and cleans, tends the fields and cares for the other animals on the farm – and all while the farmer lies in bed! That is until the day the animals decide to take action ... and come to the rescue with a simple, but heroic plan.
