WINS - "WE INSPIRE AND NURTURE SUCCESS"
As the Headteacher here at Wellfield Infant and Nursery school I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all our of children and their parents and carers. I am about to embark on my sixth year as Headteacher at Wellfield and I feel very honoured to be part of this lovely school.
Our school motto is "We Inspire and Nurture Success". This motto illustrates our whole school ethos. We strive to provide the best level of care and support for all children and provide an exciting learning environment which promotes learning and collaboration - between pupils and staff and between pupils and their peers as well as collaboration between the staff themselves. In addition to this, staff strive to continuously develop their practice and deliver outstanding teaching so that all pupils achieve their full potential.
Our team have high aspirations for all children and year on year our results are significantly above national results. (To find out more please go to the Results and Ofsted page of the website.)
The school was inspected in February 2016 and received a grading of Outstanding in all of the five areas inspected. These are:-
Effectiveness of Leadership and Management
Quality of Teaching, Learning and Assessment
Outcomes for pupils
Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare
Early Years provision
As such we were also graded as Outstanding overall.
Our skilled team of staff are dedicated to ensuring that all of our pupils are offered the best start possible and we encourage our parents and carers to work in partnership with us to support their child's education and development. We have developed a wide range of workshops for our parents and carers which we deliver throughout the year. These offer a deeper insight into the teaching and learning going on in the school and provide ideas for supporting children's learning at home. More information about the workshops can be found in the Parents section of our website.
Confidence in a school comes from knowing and understanding what is happening within it. We distribute a regular newsletter to keep everyone informed about what is going on in school. These are emailed to all our parents and carers and also available to view on our website. We hold Parents Forums at least once a term which provide a valuable opportunity for us to share our plans for the school with you and to gather your views and ideas. All of our parents and carers are welcome to join us at these meetings.
We feel it is important that mutual understanding and trust should be the basis of our shared responsibility and therefore we operate an "open door" policy at Wellfield, where you are encouraged to come into school at any reasonable time and see at first hand the learning opportunities we provide for all our children. All our parents and carers are invited to come along to our "Stay and Play" taster sessions each year. These sessions offer the opportunity to join the children for lunch and spend the afternoon doing activities together in the classrooms and are always very popular!
To find out more about the curriculum on offer here at Wellfield go to the "Curriculum" page in the About Us section or take a look at the wealth of information and photographs on the year group pages in the Children's section.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for.
