What the school says...

Wellesley Prep School has a unique atmosphere that combines real education with exciting childhood experiences. We are a family run school where the challenges and opportunities of a broad based curriculum develop enthusiastic and independent learners who achieve outstanding levels of success in both curricular and extra curricular activities. The measure of the school is that the children take away with them established family values and a work ethic that guarantees they will make an important contribution to their senior schools. ...Read more

Special Education Needs

At Wellesley we take a whole school approach to learning support. This means that every teacher is a teacher of children with special educational needs. Whether a child needs learning support because they are gifted and/or talented or because they find day-to-day learning a challenge, we have a duty of care to ensure every child can attain a level of education tailored to their individual needs. Our teaching staff are dedicated to getting to know each child as an individual. Through constant communication, observation and assessment, teachers create plans to meet pupils’ specific learning needs. Each plan goes through continuous review, discussion and adjustment to ensure learning needs are met and children have access to the curriculum offered. Differentiated work is integral to every teacher’s planning and is present in every lesson. We set each child realistic challenges with realistic outcomes. If the child cannot meet these outcomes they may require additional support to learn more effectively. Additional support can be given within lessons as well as in the form of consolidation or extension work. Class teachers and learning support staff work together for the benefit of those children who need support. Extra support can also be given within a small group or on an individual basis, outside the classroom. Any extra support will be discussed with parents. Extra support may provided in the following areas: spelling, reading, handwriting, memory and listening skills, mathematics, EAL – English as an Additional Language, study skills, fine and gross motor skills.
