Values and Vision
Werneth School values pupils who have excellent attendance, who are well behaved and those who work hard to achieve their goals. The school aims to get to know each individual child and teachers should nurture and support them. The curriculum is one that meets the needs of all the students attending the school. The goal is for teachers to encourage every student to be positive about their futures. The school experience should be fun but it should also push them to become life-long learners. The aim is to help the students develop important life skills, this includes being independent, resilient and have respect for others.
“Students achieve well. Attainment has risen rapidly and securely since the previous inspection. So too has the progress students make given their starting points. Students achieve well because teaching is usually good with some that is outstanding. A minority of teaching requires improvement. Most teaching is well planned, lively and challenging. Students enjoy learning and have positive attitudes towards school. They behave well and are respectful and courteous. They feel safe and are cared for well. Attendance has improved significantly. Leaders and managers, including the governing body, drive the school strongly and purposefully forward. They are at the root of the rapid and sustained improvements that have taken place.”
