Welcome from the Principal

I am delighted to welcome you to Whitefield School.

We are a warm, welcoming and inclusive school which places our pupils at the centre of everything we do.  We strive to accurately meet the needs of each of our pupils so that they all make the progress that is right for them.  Through our flexible curriculum pathways and our creative enrichment programmes, we want every pupil to benefit from an engaging and enjoyable school experience which fully prepares them for the next stage of their education and lives.

Whilst delivering a high-quality education is important, we know that our pupils make most progress when they feel safe, secure and supported.  This is why we are committed to upholding the very highest standards of safeguarding and welfare.  This is the golden thread running through our school and our teams of experienced teachers and specialists will always do whatever they can to support pupils.

If you are considering sending your child to our school, please do get in touch to find out how we could meet their needs.  We are always pleased to welcome prospective parents to our school and discuss how we can best support their child.

I look forward to welcoming you to Whitefield School.
