Waldringfield Primary School
Waldringfield Primary School was founded in 1874 by the great-grandfather of the village's current vicar; the original school building is now the school hall.
Today, our school motto "We care, we share, we learn together" summarises the following school aims.
We believe that all children should have the opportunity to succeed and that success often happens when it is shared within a caring, family environment.
At Waldringfield you will find children taught as individuals, in groups and as a class. Children's needs vary according to their age, ability and the subjects taught. We endeavour at all times to tailor our teaching to the needs of the child.
Waldringfield Primary School welcomes contact with parents as we feel education is very much a shared responsibility with parents and teachers working together for the benefit of the child.
The Admission to High School
The admissions policy has recently changed - For details about current admissions policy for High Schools in the area, please contact Suffolk Education Authority or the surrounding High Schools directly.
All pupils moving on from year 6, 2011 have been allocated their first choice of High School, the majority being placed at either Kesgrave High School or Farlingaye High School. Traditionally a number of pupils have also attended Waldringfield as a good grounding before moving on one of the Independent Schools in the area. This tradition still continues.
"I am very pleased with the recent judgements and the commitment of both my staff and our children as seen during our last Inspection. The inspectors left our school with the correct impression that it is a good school and comments included "Parents and pupils describe Waldringfield as 'one big happy family' where everyone works and plays together harmoniously. 'We care, we share, we learn together' underpins every aspect of school life." and "Parents are very supportive. Many choose the school, even though it is not their nearest, because they like what it does and how it does it. One typically stated, 'We have been overwhelmed by the friendliness of everyone.' "

Waldringfield Parent and Toddler Group
We are a small, friendly group of Parents, Grandparents and carers. The sessions are held in the School hall, which allows families to familiarise themselves with the teachers, school layout and surroundings. It also offers the opportunity for children to meet future classmates and for Parents to make positive neighbourly friendships.
There are craft activities, toys and refreshments every week and the group have regular educational visits such as; the police, firestation, museums, farm trips, woodland walks, beach outings, picnics at the park, seasonal parties and much more!
