About Whissendine Primary School
We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. If you choose to visit us, we trust you will find our school to be a very friendly place with a caring Christian attitude towards each individual member of the team. We work hard to create an atmosphere where talents are fully developed and individual needs are met whilst preparing children for life in the 21st century. We are fully committed to personalised learning and teaching.
What we would like to achieve
Our local area is important to us.
Rutland Water offers our children the opportunity to develop responsibility and passion for nature. The osprey project allows us to see the bigger picture - make links and connections with the wider world.
One of our core values is to promote self-confidence, social, emotional and conflict resolution life skills, in order to live and interact as responsible members of the local, national and worldwide community
About our local Ospreys
We are extremely lucky to live in the county of Rutland where the Osprey project is based. Back in 2011, our school got involved in the Osprey project, with visits from Tim and his team inspiring our children to learn more about these local and magnificent birds.The children chose to make models, diaries, movies, paintings and so much more as they became nature lovers and Osprey experts!
The next step was to write to the Tanji school children in the Gambia and forge a link through a common passion for Ospreys. Class 2 children at Whissendine were thrilled when each child received a message back from the school children.
They told us more about their lives, the migration of the Ospreys and thanked us for the football shirts we had also sent out!
Since then each year, we continue to follow these local birds through visits from the team, to Rutland Water and also by using the live webcam and our virtual schoolroom to monitor the Osprey's activity.
