Headteacher's letter to Parents and Carers
I would like to welcome you to Wildmoor Heath School's website. I hope you find it both informative and useful.
Our staff and governors are committed to ensuring children not only have a solid grounding in Literacy and Numeracy, but also the skills, values and attitudes they need to be successful in their next stage of education and beyond. These include being able to work collaboratively; resilience; determination; a ‘have a go’ attitude; curiosity and a ‘growth mind-set’ – that is, the belief it is hard work and effort that leads to success not innate talent or ability.
We know that every child is unique; with their own strengths and interests. At Wildmoor Heath we offer many opportunities for children to discover and develop their personal, social, moral and spiritual identities.
Our aims are to provide a safe and stimulating learning environment which encourages pupils to grow and develop in an atmosphere of mutual respect. We believe that education is a shared partnership between children, parents and teachers; by working together we can achieve a great deal more. We encourage parents and carers to become fully involved in their child’s learning and also in the life of the school.
During each year there are formal opportunities to discuss your child’s progress, attainment and targets, and to view their work. We are pleased to discuss any issues or concerns about your child’s progress at any time during the year and we appreciate your support if difficulties are identified. Please do not hesitate to arrange an appointment with the class teacher or me, if necessary.
We know how vital working in partnership with parents is, if children are to find school a positive and rewarding experience. There will be many occasions when your views are sought, as they are very important in shaping the development of the school. I always have an open door for parents who wish to discuss with me any worries or concerns and also to celebrate your child’s achievements.
Mr G Strudley (Headteacher)
