The tools that we are able to apply to problems alter our perceptions of the challenges we face and the solutions that are appropriate

What is the Toolbox?

Toolbox is as an alternative approach to education at Wells Park, developed to ensure all children can access the curriculum and make progress with their learning. This innovative provision within our school has been established in order to meet the broad range of needs for all our children.

We aim to provide purposeful learning opportunities to support the specific needs of all the children, enabling each child to achieve.

Accept yourself, your strengths, your weaknesses, your truths, and know what tools you have to fulfill your purpose”.

Steve Maraboli

'Think It'

The thinking room is a newly renovated class which has been designed to engage and motive the children with their learning. The sessions are specifically planned to support and develop reading writing and maths skills. It works closely with the ‘doing room’,  making links to a range of curriculum subjects.

If all you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.

If the only tool you have is a hammer, it's hard to eat spaghetti”.

David Allen

'Feel It'

The feeling classroom delivers structured sessions to promote  person, social and emotional skills. 

The planned activities provide opportunities to develop specific skills in order to support their individual needs of the children. Toolbox recognises the importance of the children's emotional well-being, and endeavour to support their needs to achieve and succeed. 

We would like to welcome Rosie to our team who will be teaching in the thinking room to support the children with specific English and Maths skills.

'Do It'

As part of a creative curriculum, the ‘Doing room’ provide practical learning opportunities in which children will apply the skills, knowledge and understanding gained from both THINK IT and FEEL IT.

The children will access various areas of learning from the curriculum, which will be delivered through a topic based, cross curricula approach. 

Children will experience a range curriculum subjects including;

  • Science
  • History 
  • Geography 
  • Art and Design
  • Design and Technology
  • Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development
