At Weald, we recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils, staff, parents and other members of the community. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where everyone is respected and valued. The positive ethos and value system is promoted through our vision statement, “Independence is Happiness”. As identified in our 2011 Ofsted Inspection Report, “Pupils’ good personal skills are underpinned and promoted by outstanding care, guidance and support by all the staff”. These engender feelings of safety, happiness and self-worth amongst all children and adults alike. People are encouraged to experiment with and take responsibility for their learning as they are nurtured sensitively towards greater self-awareness and independence.
