I would like to welcome you and your family to our school. White Waltham C of E Academy is a unique and special place where we nurture children from their first experience of education on their journey to become lifelong learners.
Every child is different and we work in partnership with parents to develop each individual to reach their full potential.
With our rapidly changing environment I am confident that we can play our part in preparing our children for their future to be responsible, creative, well educated adults with a strong Christian ethos.
Mr Clive Haines

It was lovely to see so many people supporting this event- lots of parents and children enjoying the different stalls and a number of high-quality products on sale too. Good to chat to those people I met while helping my husband on the St Mary’s stall. Anne Crittenden
What a joy! Wonderful to see these small children performing with real gusto. Congratulations to all staff for their hard work, achieving such a high standard, and to all the children who looked and sounded charming. Anne Crittenden
Christmas Lunch at White Waltham is a visit I make every effort to attend. The atmosphere is full of excitement and an innocent anticipation is still evident despite everything we hear on our media. I spent this year with Foundation and Year 1 – a special treat. I must give all relevant parents and staff a big pat on the back for encouraging the exemplary manners displayed by the children, both while I served and when I sat down with them to enjoy a traditional turkey lunch. As every parent knows, you learn a lot when you sit down to a meal with a child! All was good.
My own offspring have long since left White Waltham but every year our ‘Christmas lunch’ day conversation follows the same pattern. ‘Awwwh, and do they still have crackers and silly jokes and wayward peas and gravy and is there still ice cream and…?’ I can report that indeed they do – after 30 years. So well done to Kelly Warwick for all her hard and much appreciated work on the day and a warm welcome to Gavin Stephenson who takes over the role of chef in January. Linda Jones
St Marys Church was packed for the school’s Christmas Service this year, our first with the Rev. Dave Atallah presiding.
Traditional services like this, far from being repetitive, are a cornerstone for our church school, giving us a chance to reflect and be glad for the many gifts that we enjoy as part of a safe, stable and inclusive community.
The children were brilliant, especially those who earnestly played their part in the nativity that is the centrepiece of this service. Most of the angels’ wings stayed in place, most of the halos stayed on heads, most of the animals went in the right direction and all of the teachers were on high alert, ensuring that everything and everyone was where they should be.
The readers, the choir, the soloists – all made a special contribution to what was a joyous occasion.
Children, parents, vicar, staff, governors and visitors all joined together to sing a mix of traditional and modern carols, those who could got up and wiggled their hips and we finished by raising our voices with Joy to the World. What better thought to take us all to Christmas? Linda Jones
