At Welton CE Academy, we believe that every child is unique.
We focus on each pupil’s learning needs and develop their individual abilities.
We maintain that learning should be well rounded, and therefore we teach a broad and rich curriculum. The emotional and social aspects of learning are a focus, ensuring that our pupils develop important life skills.
As a Church of England school, Christian values provide the framework for our aims and actions.

Internet Safety - e-safety
Children should be encouraged to use the internet as much as is possible, but at all times in a safe way. Parents are asked each year if they agree to their child using the internet. Pupils must never be left unattended whilst online and teachers should ensure that this does not happen. If any adults or child suspects misuse, either by a teacher or child, the issue must be reported to the Headteacher without delay.
e-safety: a life skill
At Welton CE Academy we recognise that while online technology is fantastic for learning and for fun, it’s really important to stay safe, so we are committed to helping children manage e-safety. We help children to ‘be SMART’.
S: stay Safe – don’t give out your personal information to people, places or websites you don’t know and trust.
M: don’t Meet up – meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous; always check with an adult you trust.
A: Accepting emails, files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know can cause problems for you and your technology.
R: Reliable? Check information found online before you believe it; is the person or the website telling the truth?
T: Tell someone – tell an adult you trust if someone or something makes you feel worried or uncomfortable.
There are lots of great resources online to help; here are a few:
