About Our School

Our school community developed Vision underpins all our planning and actions. We want Welbourn School to be a place where every child is given the opportunity to develop as Confident, Capable, Creative, Connected, and Engaged Life Long Learners…. Soaring to Success.   We have high expectations for all our students.

We enjoy the support of a committed Board of Trustees and local community who ensures our school is a well-resourced high quality learning environment. We continue to be involved in ongoing review and development towards improving student achievement and enhancing our school as a place where students are valued and value learning, staff wish to teach and develop their teaching and leadership capabilities and the parent caregiver and whānau community are actively involved in a positive partnership in their children’s education.

Our school motto – “Make good choices, be Fair, Care and Share” is a living value that underpins our behaviour expectations and the importance we place on respect, relationships and belonging. In our most recent ERO visit it was noted “Positive relationships, evident across the school, reflect the clearly stated vision and values statements. Students are encouraged to make ‘good choices, be fair, care and share’ and are supported by the staff and by peer mediators. Students are friendly, cooperative and settled. They have a wide range of opportunities to develop their strengths and interests.”

 As you will see in our charter, Welbourn School provides interesting programmes across all learning areas to meet individual needs, with a strong emphasis on the foundation skills in literacy and numeracy. Our children have access to a wide range of information and technology tools to support their learning. We have a focus on developing sustainability practices and environmental education within our curriculum.
