Witton Gilbert Primary School


 We have been awarded the BIG award for work linked to Anti-Bullying.

Congratulations to all pupils and staff who worked so hard to help school win this award!

The school Anti-Bullying Champions  (including Mrs Curry and Mrs Ford) have been rewarded with an award from the Bullying Intervention Group


to celebrate school's efforts to eliminate incidents of bullying behaviour in school.  We will continue to work hard to ensure that all children who attend WGPS are safe, secure and thriving in our school.



We have been awarded the UNICEF Rights Respecting School Award (Level 1).

Congratulations to all pupils and staff involved in this amazing achievement!


At Witton Gilbert Primary, we have recently achieved the Rights Respecting Schools Award at Level 1. A Rights Respecting School promotes the UN convention on the rights of the child (CRC), which we have made an integral part of school policies, practice and ethos. The CRC consists of a number of articles that promote children’s rights to be healthy, to be educated, to be treated fairly, to be listened to and to have a childhood protected from violence, abuse and exploitation.

During our journey to becoming a Rights Respecting School, children have learnt about their rights and also the importance of respecting the rights of others. Each class has developed their own ‘Classroom Charter’, where children have chosen the rights that are most important to them. Alongside this, they have agreed how they are going to respect these rights.  We also have an RRSA group, led by Mrs Shevills, where pupils contribute to our RRSA work in school.

We are now working towards achieving the level 2 RRSA award, we are confident that the continuing  this work will further support our children in becoming confident, global citizens who understand their rights and the rights of others locally and globally.
