Welcome to Wild Bank Community School.
For latest information and advice, please follow the link to the Coronavirus Info Page
To slow down the spread of the Coronavirus, children should be at home and families should be minimising social contacts. The Government is asking schools to provide a service to the children of “key workers”. The guidance states: “If children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading.” Therefore, only families where both parents qualify are we offering places. Likewise, if key-workers are part-time, the offer is only part-time.
We need to keep the number of children to the absolute minimum to help to reduce the spread of the virus and to allow this service we offer to continue for as long as possible. This is obviously dependent upon having staff to provide it.
Opening school in this limited manner will still mean that school is a likely source of infection to those attending. Please do not send your child if they are in anyway unwell or show symptoms or if any of your family have symptoms. This is to protect key-workers for as long as possible from being infected. If children begin to show symptoms whilst in school, we will isolate them and call you for their immediate collection. Failure to adhere to any of these requirements will result in the withdrawal of care for your child.
Please note the school phone will not be manned. If you need to speak to somebody urgently please contact us on 07534 399189 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Corona Virus Advice for Schools

Dear Parents and Carers,
On behalf of the staff, governors and pupils of Wild Bank Community School, I would like to warmly welcome you to our website.
At Wild Bank, we believe our children thrive in an inclusive environment where they feel happy, safe, valued and respected. We aim to ensure they are motivated by learning and offered the best opportunities that we can provide for the highest possible attainment. Through teaching of the highest quality, a range of stimulating activities and visits, we motivate our children to develop a passion for learning, a respect for themselves, others and the world around them. The relationship between school and home is one of the important factors in ensuring the success of each and every child. Therefore, parents, carers and family members are always welcome in school.
Children and young people are at the heart of our school. Every decision made is in the best interests of our pupils and provides benefit to learning and development socially, emotionally and morally, as well as academically. We are extremely proud of our school and stand by our motto: “Working together we can achieve our best”.
We hope that our website will give you a real flavour of the atmosphere of our school, as well as providing parents and other visitors with lots of information about school events, policies and day to day life. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries that you may have or to visit our school- we are always happy to show prospective parents around.
I look forward to welcoming you into our school community and working in partnership with you.
Mrs. J. Callaghan
Wild Bank Community School is accessible to wheelchairs- it is a single storey school, with some open plan areas, and others accessible by double doors. We have disabled bathroom facilities.
Wild Bank is part of a project that is run jointly between school and Greater Manchester Police. This project is called Operation Encompass. It aims to support children who are affected by domestic violence by ensuring that their school is informed. This allows the school to support the children. If you have any other questions about this project, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
The next five events that are happening at our school are:
Latest Foundation stage, School Wide Events
There are currently no events.
Whole School Calendar
You can see our whole calendar here.
We are very conscious of safeguarding at Wild Bank and do our very best to ensure that our children are safe and secure at all times. Please can you make sure that we know who is
collecting your child at the end of the day before home time. In the interest of ensuring that we are only sending children home with the right people it is imperative that we know in advance who is coming and if it is someone that staff might not recognise that there is a password in place. Please do not be offended if we hold on to your child and contact you if we are not sure who the person is that is collecting. This will be done for the sake of the safety of all our children.
