Welcome from the Headteacher

 It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Velmead’s website.

Our school motto is ‘Excellence with Care.’ We work towards this motto through a TEAM approach – TEAM being an acronym for Together Everyone Achieves More. Throughout our website you will find a multitude of examples of this approach to our work with the children and their families.

Our vision for the school is captured in the document that you can access from this link: School Vision

As you continue your visit to our website you will find lots of useful factual information about the work of the school for example my Weekly Newsletter which includes a calendar of events, information about Extra-Curricular Opportunities, Velmead Values and Ethos and what OFSTED said about us in January 2018 and much more. In addition, our website includes a plethora of examples that celebrate our children’s academic, creative, sporting, horticultural and social success and achievement.

I am very proud to be the Headteacher of TEAM Velmead; working with such talented children, professional staff, supportive parents and dedicated governors truly means that there is no limit to the ways that we achieve ‘Excellence with Care.’

In keeping with the TEAM approach to continue providing the very best for our children, we welcome feedback and contributions from the many ‘stakeholders’ who will interact with the school through our website. If you have any feedback on the website or the work of the school, or you would like to contribute your skills, talents or time to us please contact us.
Mr Andy Howard
