Our Values
RESPECT: for ourselves, for others and for our school
EXCELLENCE: in everything we do, we strive to do our best
PERSEVERENCE: keeping going when things get tough

At Welburn Hall School we believe that:

A good school is one that offers a caring, cheerful and safe environment in which pupils and
staff feel valued and are encouraged to reach their full potential and where effective
learning is promoted.

A successful pupil is a happy, confident, well-motivated person who enjoys learning and
who is enabled to become an independent member of society.

An effective member of staff is one who enjoys being with the pupils and inspires them in a
learning environment which is positive for all and who makes a significant contribution to the
pupils’ development.

An effective learning environment is stimulating and attractive. In such an environment, a
range of well-organised strategies are used to respond to groups and individual needs. Pupils
are offered learning experiences that have an appropriate mixture of challenge and support.

The health, safety and welfare of pupils are a prime concern to all stakeholders. Policies and
procedures for Child Protection are securely in place and all staff receive regular training to
ensure practices are of the highest standard.

Recruitment and selection of staff is fully compliant with all aspects of safer recruitment
guidance and legislation in this area.


  • To provide the highest quality of education, therapy and care for children and young people from 5-19 years who have a diverse range of special educational needs.

    school community and promote an understanding and tolerance of people of
