Welcome

 

Welcome to South Wellfield First School.

 

On behalf of the staff and governors of South Wellfield First School I would like to welcome you and your family to our school website. We aim to foster a happy and secure environment in which our children can thrive and can achieve high academic standards. South Wellfield is a special place where the staff are dedicated to providing a stimulating, exciting environment, where everyone feels valued and safe, and where our children can flourish and reach their full potential.Through our core values, we provide an environment in which the emotional, physical, academic, social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of each child is developed. We pride ourselves on the outstanding behaviour of our children.

 

By providing a bespoke, well-structured and engaging curriculum, we aim to foster a love of learning as well as respect and care for each other and the world around us. We are proud to have achieved a number of awards including Healthy School, Artsmark, International School Award and School Games Gold.

 

Our children are confident, robust, assertive and articulate. We provide an excellent range of extra-curricular activities that we encourage every child to take advantage of such as sewing club, gardening club, a variety of sporting clubs, computing, board games and the ‘Musical Chairs’ orchestra.  We encourage children to take this opportunity, not only learn a new skill, but socialise with others in school.  We value highly the partnership between home and school and encourage all parents to take an active part in the education of their children.

 

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our school.
