Heltwate Vision

Heltwate provides a happy and safe environment where pupils are encouraged to do the best they can by a team who supports them throughout their time here.

Our desire is to be outstanding in every area, to maximise every pupil’s opportunities and potential.

Individual attainment should be the best it can be, LEARNING through enjoyment and hard work are essential.

Pupil achievement will be SHARED and celebrated no matter how small the step.

Pupils will GROW and develop socially and life skills will become an important part of that growth.

A family ethos will exist throughout the school.  All members should CARE for each other.

Heltwate’s Vision is to provide a happy, stimulating, supportive, secure and positive environment which is high in expectation and creates a strong feeling of community.
