WELCOME to Welford Primary School

School will open for all children in Years 1 to 6 on Thursday, September 3rd. Please look at letter below for details of expectations, flexible opening times and entry and exit points. Nursery and Reception children will have received a separate letter for arrangements at the start of the term. We look forward to seeing everyone back in school...

or leave a message on the school phone number: 0121 464 9228.

We say a fond farewell to the year 6 class of 2020, we hope very much that we will be able to say a proper goodbye to all the children when it is safe for us to do so. We are sad that lockdown has taken away much of our time together this year and many of our familiar Welford celebrations linked to magical memories of their time with us. We have enjoyed every minute we have spent with this cohort over the years and look forward to hearing of their successes in the future. Good luck Year 6 - you'll be missed!

Go and be the very best you can be!

Summer Learning Packs and Children's Reports are still available for collection from the main office until Tuesday 21st July.

Please make every effort to collect and complete these with your children so that they are as well-prepared as possible for their return to a new year group in September.
