Head Teacher's Welcome


Welcome to Orton Wistow Primary School’s website, and thank you for your interest in our school. Our website will provide you with a lot of information about OWPS and give you a sense of what is important to us. However, it will never beat a visit in person, and we hope you will also get a chance to meet us in the future.

Our PRIDE code (Polite, Respect, Independence, Do Your Best and Everybody Matters) underpins everything we do at Orton Wistow Primary School. It is these values that ensure our pupils become well-rounded citizens who will go on to make a positive contribution to society. Along with our Learning Tools (Responsibility, Resilience, Perseverance, Concentration and Teamwork) we instil in our pupils a love of learning that they will take with them into the future. 

The safety, support, happiness and education of the children who attend our school are our priorities. We continue to build on our success each year, never standing still and always looking for what will make a positive difference for our pupils. Our curriculum reflects the needs of our learners and has been developed by the experienced and passionate staff that work here. We focus on the key knowledge, skills, understanding and vocabulary the children will need in each subject, building on the previous year’s learning as they move through the school.

The amazing community and dedication from all groups associated with the school - staff, governors, parents and the pupils - contribute to our aim of developing the whole child within and beyond the curriculum. We work together to motivate our learners, always encouraging their creativity and curiosity.

Thank you again for taking the time to get to know our school, we look forward to meeting you in person.

Kind regards

Colin Marks
