Wellington Primary School
At Wellington we strive for excellence in all we do, underpinned by a strong ethos of care. We have been awarded the Artsmark Gold Award, accredited by Arts Council ENgland, demonstrating our commitment to the arts and cultural education. We are proud of our Wellington Curriculum, where a strong foundation of basic skills is broadened by rich and varied experiences and opportunities.
At Wellington, we have a wide range of high quality activities that happen before and after school. Breakfast Club is available every morning from 8:00 a.m. A small charge is made to working parents and we ask for a small donation from others. This supports us in providing a healthy brerakfast and covering staffing costs. We also run activities at the end of the day, Monday to Friday, most weeks during the school year.
We are ambitious for our children and provide rich and diverse cultural, sporting and artistic experiences through our visits and clubs provision. Accessing a range of experiences enhances the specific knowledge, skills, understanding and values in our curriculum. Our children are happy, friendly, well-behaved and have a love for learning.
our curriculum is broad and balanced, and promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our children, as well as preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
We aim to provide children with an experiential education. Our carefully constructed curriculum promotes a life-long love of learning where children achieve highly, by acquiring the knowledge and skills they need to be fully prepared for the next stage of their learning.
We have high expectations and provide opportunities and experiences which build cultural capital. We are highly ambitous for our children and want them to aim high with their aspirations. Children must be equipped to take advantage of every opportunity open to them in the future, particularly as citizens of London.
Our values are learning, respect and wellbeing and these are encompased by our rules for life - Ready, Respectful and Safe.
The rule is Ready because we value Learning for Life.
The rule is Respectful because we value Respect, for ourselves, each other and our world
The rule is Safe because we value Wellbeing, keeping ourselves and others physically and emotionally safe and well.
OUr values are the drivers of our curriculum. Through our values, children will leaern to be curious, persistent, ambitious, co-operative, empathetic, kind, resilient, healthy and responsible.
