Headteacher's Welcome

Western Primary_copyright (2)

Western Primary_copyright (118)Welcome to our website which I hope will provide you with a flavour of our friendly, successful and innovative school.

Our vision at Western, underpinned by our values of kindness, honesty and respect, is to develop kind, ambitious, curious, confident and successful young people who are excited about their futures.

Where success is concerned, it is important to nurture and celebrate success in all its forms. Whilst achievement in the more academic subjects is desirable, success in sport, art, music, drama and other areas also needs to be encouraged, valued and celebrated. We also believe that it is important to prepare children for an increasingly digital world and workplace; as a 1-2-1 iPad school, we are proud to have achieved Apple Distinguished School status for 2021-24.

One of the prime aims of any school is to promote learning, but we all know that children learn best when they are happy and healthy and feel valued and cared for. At Western we pay attention to these details by supporting our pupils’ wellbeing and by working in close partnership with parents and carers to ensure children are ready and able to access their learning and development.

I often refer to the Western community rather than Western school, as that is a much better description of what has been built up over many years. All of our staff, governors, pupils and their families are integral parts of that community and we are also fortunate to have the support of the Red Kite Learning Trust, of which we are a founder member.

If you would like to visit our school, please contact one of our admin team who will happily arrange this. We look forward to meeting you!
