Welcome from the Headteacher

I would like to extend a warm welcome to The Wilfred Owen School.  

We are a friendly, caring school; where staff, children, parents and governors work co-operatively to enable everyone to achieve their full potential.  We believe that every individual can achieve great things and work hard to develop this self-belief and ambition.  We recognise the importance of the whole family and wider community in the success of our school and make working with these groups a priority.

We have recently achieved the Inclusion Quality Mark as a recognition of our work towards inclusion.  This is a significant part of our values and ethos and we are proud of this achievement.

At The Wilfred Owen School, we value academic achievement, whilst recognising the equal importance of social and emotional development by providing our children with a rich and varied range of opportunities.

We believe that happy, safe and secure children learn best in an environment where they are able to take risks and challenge themselves and others.  We offer a wide range of support and intervention to enable this to happen.

Whilst we aim to include enough information within this website to allow you to make an informed choice, there is no substitute for visiting the school at work to see what we can achieve. 

I look forward to personally welcoming you to The Wilfred Owen School.

Mrs Kerry Lynch
