School development priorities 2023-24

1. Including all children

At Wellington we welcome all children. This year we are making our offer for children with SEN even better.

2. Great teaching

Always a focus at Wellington, and this year we are working with Lansbury Lawrence Primary to develop and publish a guide to great teaching so all teachers provide children with the best lessons.

3. Wellington workforce

We appreciate our dedicated and capable workforce, so this year we want to ensure we’re encouraging all our staff to progress and achieve in their careers.

Fantastic Food in Schools

Our school is one of ten working with Tower Hamlets Council to pilot ways of improving school food across the borough. This is called the ‘Fantastic Food in Schools’ initiative.

Health facts

Did you know that children in Tower Hamlets have high levels of excess weight:
- 4% of Reception children are overweight
- 4% of Year 6 children are overweight

This is above the average for London and England.

Dental health is also a concern:
- 6% of 5-year-olds have dental decay

This is also above national and London rates.

Wellington actions

- Asking parents, children and staff about our school lunches because we want to make them even tastier
- Making dining time more like a family mealtime
- Developing the Wellington menu with the support of a chef
- Going for the Gold Award in Healthy Schools

Thank you to those parents who have already supported us with this work, completing surveys and joining in with our tasting session. We will be seeking your support further as part of our ongoing work.

Separated families

We are respectful of the sensitivities around families where parents live apart from each other. If any parent wishes to receive information about their child who attends our school we are happy to offer annual reports as well as updates on their child’s progress. All parents also have full access to the school website.
