Individual access to technology will help our school to provide learning opportunities that excite, motivate and challenge our students, and encourages lifelong learning and an interest in the world around them. The digital skills our students will develop will enable them to make a significant contribution when they enter the workplace, in any field they choose to follow.
1:1 learning also enables students to personalise their learning environment, to ensure that each student can identify their strengths and build on any other skills through 24-7 access to online resources. Problem solving is improved and attainment is increased in those students given personalised access to technology for learning.
Within a learning environment, iPads can be used for the following:
·as a research tool
·to take notes and / or create exam revision materials
·to present information in new and engaging ways
·as an assessment tool
·to work with other students outside of school hours
We would like to give all of our students the opportunity to benefit from 1:1 learning. Although this technology can be expensive, our programme allows students, parents and guardians the opportunity to pay for these devices on a monthly basis. Using special education pricing and low public sector lending rates, we have developed the most cost effective way of allowing all students to benefit from the most inspiring learning environment possible.
We hope to see you at our parental information evening on 10/02/2015 at 5.30pm and thank you for your support with this new and exciting venture.
As Headteacher of Wellfield Community School it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website. The information displayed here is designed to give you a flavour of our vibrant and successful school.
We are very proud of our school and what we have achieved for the young people who attend. The success is due to our high expectations, a commitment to constantly improving achievement for our students and our belief that all students are entitled to the best education possible.
