Welcome to Active Wellbeing

Active Wellbeing School is an ‘Independent SEND School’ based in Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent, providing high quality education for boys and girls aged 4 to 11. 


Freedom to Flourish

We recognise that mainstream education is not for everyone and, through our carefully planned curriculum and excellent pastoral support, we offer students the chance to thrive, achieve and improve their life chances. Students at Active Wellbeing School have the ‘freedom to flourish’ as we place great emphasis on the importance of physical and mental wellbeing.

We treat every student at Active Wellbeing School with the same consideration, commitment, patience and kindness that we would want for our own children. We understand that a positive, well-rounded education goes far beyond the classroom and our dedicated team of staff are passionate about developing the character strengths of the students as well as aiming for academic success.

Your child will be collected by Active Wellbeing staff members from their home and transported to and from school on one of our school minibuses. This systems forms part of our education offer. They will always be collected in time to arrive at school to start the day at 8.30am sharp. They will leave the school premises at 2.30pm.

We encourage children to bring a healthy, well-balanced lunch to school. Which could include items such as fruit, vegetables, yoghurts, pasta, rice or salads. We ask that children do not bring nuts into school as some children have allergies.

If your child needs their medication administrating in school time then you must inform their class teacher via Class Dojo or contact the school office on 01782 405598. You will be required to complete a medication form so that Active Wellbeing School can ensure your child’s medication is administrated correctly by one of our Paediatric First Aid trained staff. All medications held on school premises are kept in a secure location.

Please try to arrange any medical appointments outside of school time. If this is not possible we ask that you inform the school office on 01782 405598 ahead of time so we can record the appointment on our school register.

We ask that children remain at home until they are well enough to return to school. If your child has had a stomach bug or sickness we ask that children remain at home for 24 hours after their last bout of illness to prevent the spread of infection.

Active Wellbeing School provide weekly educational visits as part of our learning offer, these come at no cost to parents/carers.


Each child at Active Wellbeing School receives snacks and a school dinner for free each day. Our chef, Mr Mike, provides healthy, well-balanced meals for our children and caters to each child’s dietary requirements.
