December Update

As the end of a very busy term at Wellfield Junior School, I would like to say a huge thank you to all the children and their parents for their support and to all the staff and governors for their hard work and dedication to the school. Our highly positive Ofsted inspection in September confirmed that we are indeed a good school, with many valuable areas of strength and expertise; and further to go on the journey of course! It underlined our pride in the school, as a place where children feel safe, and well cared for as individuals; where they can learn well and enjoy success; and recognised the valuable partnership with our parents and families. Have a wonderful time over the holidays, with best wishes from all of us at Wellfield Junior School. We break up on Friday 21st December at 3.20pm and reopen on Monday 7th January at...

Ofsted Report 2018

Following our recent Ofsted Inspection on 13th September, I am delighted with the published outcome, which confirms what we as a school firmly believe: that we continue to be a good school. The report is very complimentary about the children’s good behaviour and eagerness to learn, our effective safeguarding and our  good progress since the previous inspection. It recognised the huge range of extra-curricular activities provided here, and the warm, friendly atmosphere. “Wellfield is a calm, safe and purposeful school where pupils are well behaved and want to learn.” It also recognises teachers’ high expectations in lessons, and the good quality of teaching, resulting in strong progress. The report also confirms our own and the governors’ understanding of how we can continue to build on this to further improve. “Teachers’ work to develop the most able pupils’ confidence to challenge themselves with more difficult activities is beginning to bear fruit.” I was grateful too for the many overwhelmingly positive responses that staff, parents (and pupils) gave to the inspector’s survey, online and via text. The children were fantastic, and a credit to their parents. Thank you! Ofsted Report...
