We fully understand that being healthy and happy is key to being successful. This is why we make wellbeing and positive mental health a priority for our community. Our vision and values are at the heart of everything that we do at school. For more information on these please see our Vision and Values page on the website.
We also know that the people in our community are what makes our school extra special and we are very proud of the connections that we make with our children and each other.
Our engaging and exciting curriculum, our amazing Forest School, the variety of playtime provision, our school environment with vibrant and welcoming displays, local and global projects etc also contribute to our wellbeing culture - but most of all we know that the people who work at Walton and our incredible children are key to our wellbeing success!
Parent and Pupil Voice
Thank you to those parents that completed the well being questionnaire through Survey Monkey. earlier this year. Our parent voice is very important to us as this is how we know what we are doing well and what we need to do even better!
Below is a document outlining the results.
Children's Questionnaire - Return to school
We also conducted a children's questionnaire prior to returning to school in September. This was really important for us to see which children may have needed some additional support to return to school and the new normal.
Thank you to everyone who completed this. We treated all the comments in the strictest confidence and hope that you could see on your child's return to school the strategies that we put in place to support everyone.
