Welcome from the Principal
Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to Whitefield School. As a part of Flourish Learning Trust, we seek to deliver Enjoyment, Achievement and Wellbeing for all. This guides our practice and underpins all that we do.
We know that our pupils achieve their best when they feel safe, secure and supported and when they can follow structured routines in a familiar environment. As such, our school is a calm, nurturing and welcoming place which has evidence-based, specialist education structures in place and puts the needs, ambitions and wellbeing of our pupils at the heart of everything we do.
From their very first day at Whitefield School, pupils are made to feel welcome, valued and admired. Our school community champions every pupil’s individuality, personality, background, strengths, interests and ambition. We promote positive behaviour strategies and trauma-informed practice throughout the school. All our staff are trained to support pupils effectively using these approaches and to enable pupils’ learning, progress and enjoyment. The school’s values are core to staff and pupils work together and promote kindness and respect.
By reinforcing positive behaviours, our pupils are always ready to learn; they are kind to each other and they respect their teachers. This leads to disruption-free and focused lessons allowing pupils to fully immerse themselves in the learning opportunities available.
If you believe our school could benefit your child, please feel free to contact us and discuss how we could meet their needs.
I feel honoured to lead such an inclusive, nurturing and aspirational school and I look forward to welcoming you.
