Welcome to Wellington Community Primary School!
We trust that you find your visit to our school website informative and fun, giving an insight into what we are all about! We are a two form entry primary school with a capacity for 420 pupils on roll. Our school has changed enormously in recent years, formed from the successful amalgamation of separate infant and junior schools, situated approximately half a mile apart. We operated as a split site primary for nearly 3 years before coming together on one site in November 2015.
Standards are high and children make rapid progress in their learning. As you navigate through our website you will see that we offer a wide range of extra curricular activities and after school clubs, catering for a range of ages and interests across the school, particularly those which us allow us to learn and apply skills in collaborative work and competition with other schools, including in; a range of sports, dance and music. Children have plentiful opportunities to participate in sporting fixtures and musical provision. Regular visits and visitors provide many embellishments to teaching and learning, and the curriculum.
We are a very open school with a community feel, valuing the ways in which we communicate with our parents and families. Not only of what is going on at school, but also our strengths, and areas of development, so that we can all work together to give our children and community the best opportunities possible. The school is very welcoming and diverse, the staff are very dedicated, the parents, families and community are supportive, and the children, the heart of our school, are fantastic, demonstrating excellent attitudes and behaviours to their learning, and a pride in their many opportunities and achievements.
Our motto is very clear, 'Together for Excellence', born from the amalgamation of two schools in becoming one entity, and the high aspirations of a newly cohesive community working together to realise an excellence in the all round education afforded in preparing children for learning the skills which give them their own aspirations, interests and options in life. In February 2014, we were judged by Ofsted as a 'Good' school and we continue to work to build upon the strong foundations that we have set for our school. We work very well with other schools across Aldershot and Hampshire to share best practice and continually develop what we provide as a school.
Whether you are an existing parent, or prospective parent looking to enrol your child in our school, please organise a time to come and have a look at our learning in action. We are always happy to show people first hand why we are so proud of our school.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries you may have.
