Welcome to the Wellfield Junior School Website
At Wellfield Junior School we are extremely proud of our school and have worked hard to create a learning environment in which all our children can thrive. We recognise that partnership between School and home, between teachers and parents is essential if your children are to be given the best opportunities to which they are entitled. Our website aims to provide an overview of what we do, how we do it and the education our children experience. We hope you find it useful and informative.
School Opens: Tuesday 5th January – School Closes: Friday 12th February
Mr Dutton’s Update
On Tuesday 19th January almost 50 parents and staff from both the Infant and Junior schools gathered to learn more about how to keep our children safe online. Leon Pietrzak shared valuable tips and resources on how to manage settings on smartphones, tablets and other internet enabled devices and stay in the game as our children grow up in the digital world. As well as being a useful tool, the internet can bring obvious dangers if children are not careful and ignore safety guidelines. Look at our safeguarding page for links to advice and further resources. Be aware of age restrictions on many social media sites and become a part of their online experience, being especially vigilant around the people they are talking to online. This article on BBC's iWonder is very relevant : "Are tablets good for children?".
We welcome prospective parents and would encourage you to make an appointment to visit us during the normal school day. Please contact the main school office on tel: 0161 912 3685 to make suitable arrangements.
