Information about us

We are a one form entry school catering for children from 3 - 11 years of age (Nursery to Year Six).

We are situated on Park Road, Birkenhead.

The school staff consists of a Headteacher, twelve teachers, including a SENDCo who is not class based and eleven Teaching Assistants as well as a caretaker, three office staff, a cook, kitchen staff and cleaners. The building has eight permanent classrooms, a large multi-purpose hall, a community/meeting room, a learning room, a school library, a cookery room and a nurture room called The Rainbow Room. There is a large playground divided into different areas including a smaller playground, quiet garden area and sports cage. The Early Years Foundation Stage and Year One each have their own outdoor area.


We pride ourselves on being a friendly school where all adults, from lunch time staff to the headteacher, quickly get to know all of our children. Our aim is to foster a love of learning in all of our children through understanding their learning styles, interests and offering the appropriate level of challenge and support for each individual child. We are passionate about developing the whole child - academically, socially and spiritually. At Well Lane it is our mission to build our children's independence, confidence and resilience. We want every one of our children to achieve their full potential and for them to take pride in their own and others' achievements.


We are passionate about the mental health and wellbeing of our children, parents and staff so we now have two full time Mental Health and Wellbeing Teaching Assistants, who started their roles in September 2020.
