**PLEASE READ THIS UPDATE**
There has been a change to Government advice. If ANYONE in your household has symptoms of a sudden persistent cough or high temperature DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL. Call the school office on 01254 667449 to report their absence. The entire household should now ISOLATE FOR 14 DAYS – even those not displaying symptoms. The same applies to anyone who may care for your child.
On behalf of the pupils, staff, parents and Governors, I would like to welcome you and your family to Wensley Fold Church of England Primary Academy.
At Wensley Fold we provide a happy, secure and supportive learning environment where the children develop independence and work hard to make the most of their talents, and ‘Make Each Day Count’ within a deep and rich curriculum.
Teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.
We believe a close working relationship between home and school is vital to support your child’s learning. We encourage you as parents to form a partnership with the school and to actively share in your child’s education.
At Wensley Fold we take pride in our safeguarding culture which permeates everything that we do and where everyone takes responsibility for safeguarding, We recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.
We support the values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs and these are embedded within our curriculum. We aim to empower children to have a voice and to stand up against discrimination, valuing equality, tolerance and mutual respect.
At Wensley Fold we believe that every one of us is loved unconditionally by God.We must avoid, at all costs,diminishing the dignity of any individual to a stereotype or a problem. We offer a community where everyone is a person known and loved by God,supported to know their intrinsic value.
