WELCOME BACK #TEAMWAUNFAWR
6th September 2019
A warm welcome to pupils, parents and staff joining our team this September - it's great to have you on board. For former pupils and families, welcome back, we've missed your smiles and news over the summer holidays.
Our new website is being developed and we are keen to engage parents and pupils in using the website as a means to support learning at home. Over the term our pupils will work alongside teachers to create links to the best learning tools that they can access at home online e.g. websites or apps that help with their learning.The new calendar feature enables you to download the school calendar to your phone so that no important date is missed! Don't forget ClassDojo is used by all classes to keep you up to date with class news.
We've had a great start to the term, during our Inset days the staff and governors began redesigning our mission and vision statement as part of our journey toward curriculum reform.
As our curriculum changes, our vision for the future of Waunfawr school also needs to change. In Spring term all parents, staff and governors were invited to respond to a survey about our school and what values and principles they felt were most important.
We used the responses to shape our new vision statement, ensuring that we were building on what everyone wants our school to achieve.
Our revised vision statement for Waunfawr 2019
- We shine in our school as happy and confident individuals.
- We lay the foundations for our community to succeed locally and globally.
- We challenge ourselves and learn from one another's experiences as we journey towards and shape our futures.
- We strive as a team to motivate the future dream makers of Waunfawr.
Over the next few weeks we will be working with the pupils to create our school aims to achieve our vision. I look forward to sharing their ideas with you soon.
