Please take a look at our School Mission Statement
Books and reading are always at the forefront of our mind at Wellsprings, and we have many strategies to encourage children to read and enjoy reading. This September, all staff undertook training to develop their Phonics teaching skills. We have also invested a considerable amount of money purchasing materials to help children develop their phonics skills- a programme called Read, Write Inc. We are also focusing on GPS – the shortened title for what the DfE refer to as Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling, which we are striving to include more formally in our curriculum. We also encourage the children to write with confidence and imagination, no matter what the subject, giving them a range of opportunities from short, snappy writing activities to extended writing challenges.
For further information about how the school helps your children learn most effectively, please read our School Plan (Raising Achievement Plan) and school evaluations by visiting our Governors section.
Any concerns or complaints can be provided to the Headteacher, or if necessary to the Chair of Governors, via the Concerns and complaints Policy in our Policies and procedures page.
We have a strong commitment to sport and regularly achieve well in tournaments and competitions – as our trophy cabinet proves!
We were very excited and proud to receive the Sainsbury’s School Games GOLD award in 2022!
