Message From The Headteacher

Welcome to Welbeck Primary School,

I am proud and privileged to be the Headteacher of a vibrant, inner-city community school where high aspirations are at the heart of all that we do.

At Welbeck, we develop happy, confident and secure children in a nurturing, stimulating and creative environment. By the time our pupils leave us, we aim to equip every child with the skills needed to make positive contributions to both the school and wider society.

We have a talented and dedicated team who work hard to plan and provide an exciting, engaging curriculum where children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning. Every child completes the ’50 Things to do before you leave Welbeck’ challenge providing them with invaluable experiences to develop them as global citizens.

Standards are high. We have high expectations of all learners and provide intensive support allowing all children to make good progress. In addition to academic success, we are committed to identifying, developing and nurturing individual talents and aptitudes so all children can achieve their full potential. Therefore, all children at Welbeck are included in our Gifted and Talented register.

We believe parental support is crucial to the success of your child’s education and progress. The Covid-19 pandemic brought our school community closer than ever and parents/carers work with our school to ensure the very best for their children. We provide a range of opportunities for parents to engage with their child’s learning regularly and are present after school to discuss your child’s learning with you.

In summary, children at Welbeck get what they deserve-the best. We have earned our excellent reputation and Outstanding status by investing in people and ‘Never settle for anything less than our best’ is now a much used, favourite Welbeck motto.

If you would like to find out more I would be delighted to show you around so that you can see the school in action. Please contact the office to make an appointment – I look forward to seeing you.

Mrs Rebecca Gittins
