Have a great summer break

The final week of term is already here and what a year it has been! Thank you for helping us do our best to manage the current very high rate of Covid infections locally by not sending any children into school who were unwell, even if they are not displaying “typical” Covid-19 symptoms. This directive for close contacts to self-isolate applies up until 16th August. Miss Graham (Acting Head) and Mrs Nesbitt (Deputy Head), along with all the rest of the staff, will be looking forward to continuing to work closely with you next year, whatever the outcome of the consultation to amalgamate process in September. In the meantime, please have a wonderful summer break and after my retirement I look forward to hearing that Wellfield Junior School continues on its amazing journey as a very special place where everyone can care, learn, respect and succeed together.

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.
