School Life

All the children in Wellesley School are assigned to one of four houses: Rowan, Oak, Hawthorn or Maple.

At the beginning of each year the children vote for a boy and a girl to act as a house captain and lead their house. Thoroughout the year children compete against other houses in a range of academic and sporting activities such as sports day, football tournaments, spelling and maths competitions. Cups are award to the winning house which are then proudly displayed in the school entrance area.

Children also receive points for their houses to reward good manners, behaviour and work. A cup is presented to the house at the end of each term who have collected the most points. Children are also presented with certificates for each set of ten house points which they are awarded.

Children also attend a special house assembly once a month which is organised and lead by their house captains.

School Council

The School Council is made up of two representatives from each class in the school.  It meets once a month to consider issues which have been raised during class council meetings.

The Council also organises fund raising for Comic Relief, Sports Relief and Children in Need.

The Friends of Wellesley School (FoWS)

The school is very fortunate to be supported by an active parent teacher associatiion who strive to provide a mix of fund raising and social activities throughout the year, for the pupils, their families and the local community.  FoWS always welcome help from new families joining the school.

Fund raising has provided books for the KS1 reading scheme, Phonics resources, Google Chromebooks for pupils, contributed towards the play equipment in the grounds, leaving gifts for the Year 6 pupils and help towards the residential visits and year group visits.
