Walton on the Naze Primary School
The school can trace its roots back to the opening of Walton on the Naze Infants School in October 1872. The Infants School occupied purpose-built premises in the High Street (now part of Walton library) and Walton Primary School opened in April 1906 when the Infants moved from their High Street classroom into the Primary School in Standley Road. After the Secondary School moved into new accommodation in Thorpe in 1968, the Primary School transferred into the former secondary premises in January 1970. At Walton we strive to ensure that every child is educated though an active, engaging Curriculum. We want all of our children leaving aspiring to be the best they can be, continually challenging themselves. Our children are polite and caring, learn to be part of a community and responsible citizens. We believe that strong links between home and school are essential for a child to flourish; therefore, many events involve parents and carers. Our dedicated team prides itself on knowing our children and families well, working together to provide our children with the best possible futures, in a happy, secure, and caring environment.

1. Action Plan
1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?
The school has strong links with the local community (prior to COVID!)
Our annual Christmas Carol service is usually held in the local parish church. The choir sings at the annual Rotary Carol Service with the other local schools and represents the school singing at All Saints’ Church during the year.
Each term, pupil representatives of our School Council select either a local, national or international charity to support after consultations with their classmates. Collections are also made for deserving causes at our Harvest Festival and Christmas Carol Services.
Parents and friends are invited to many events during the year including the Christmas Carol Service, the annual drama production and Sports Day. Visitors are warmly invited into school to share their knowledge and expertise with the children and, whenever possible, the children are offered opportunities to attend educational visits and learn about the local environment.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
