Welcome from Our Headteacher
On behalf of everyone here at Team Wayfield, I would like to welcome you to Wayfield Primary School. I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of a thriving Apple Distinguished school. As you walk down the corridors, you can almost hear the heartbeat of digital technology connecting the cogs of curious minds. Our children light up when they talk about their learning. It’s easy to underestimate how impressive many of their learning journeys have been during and post-covid.
Our culture is centred around the belief that every learner should feel proud to achieve. Despite being situated in an area of high deprivation, with 40% of our children qualifying for Pupil Premium and socio-economic barriers limiting their chances for success, we believe that harnessing the power of Apple technology changes lives. It empowers our children to achieve anytime, anywhere.
Purposeful and strategic deployment of 1:1 iPads, throughout each key stage, has deepened the crucial partnership between parent and practitioner, raising student aspiration, promoting greater teacher autonomy and learner agency, widening accessibility to the curriculum and accelerating progress. Our Apple ecosystem underpins our digital learning strategy; driving authentic and meaningful connections across our school community, engaging lessons and impactful experiences for our children through creativity, exploration and discovery.
Our children… and the impact of Apple technology… is truly remarkable.
