Welcome to Wellington Primary Academy
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the extended family of Wellington Schools with the latest member, Wellington Primary Academy opening in September 2014.
I have had the privilege of being a Headteacher in this area of Wiltshire since 2004 and was incredibly honoured recently to be asked to be involved in the creation and establishment of the new school from April 2014, in preparation for its opening in September 2014. From my local Headship experience and from growing up in within this area, I fully understand the experiences and needs of children and families from both military and civilian backgrounds. I continue to live locally with my family and enjoy horse riding on the plains.
We believe at Wellington that every child deserves excellent teachers and whilst the school is under construction I will be spending the next few months establishing the staffing base as well as resourcing the school.
A Wellington education promotes:
- Excellence through rigorous learning of key skills within a rich and broad curriculum.
- Holistic Learning by developing the whole child.
- Innovation in the way we teach and learn.
- Collaboration with parents and carers, the Wellington family, the military community and local primaries.
Through opportunities to learn creatively, explore and enquire, the children at Wellington Primary Academy will be encouraged to think deeply about their learning in an environment where there is a strong emphasis on providing an inspiring academic experience that is pupil‐centred and stimulation. Staff will work hard as a team, reviewing progress and exploring new strategies to capture the energy and enthusiasm of young learners, in order to inspire them to develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime.
I look forward to meeting and working with you and your children in our exciting new school.
