The aims of our school are encapsulated by our vision statement:

Our School Vision

At Western, we aim to develop kind, ambitious, curious, confident and successful young people who are excited about their futures.


(the characteristic spirit of a community as manifested in its attitudes and aspirations)

Western’s ethos is centred around a supportive community; this is a body of people who all share the same aims and includes pupils, parents, staff, governors, and other parties such as secondary schools and local businesses.

Together, this community has built and maintains, an open, nurturing and inclusive environment where children can take advantage of exciting and engaging learning experiences in an atmosphere of trust, belonging and happiness. The Western community is one which embraces innovation and risk-taking in order to be at the forefront of the evolving educational landscape.

Our community recognises and respects that all children are different and, whilst we understand the importance of achievement in the core curriculum subjects, we also recognise excellence in expressive and performing arts, sport and the use of technology as well as the importance of healthy minds and bodies.

We want our children to develop a set of values that will stand them in good stead now and in later life. These include a sense of community, and responsibility. Children are encouraged to be kind and considerate, and to have respect and show tolerance for all. The promotion of British values and an understanding of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects of learning are at the heart of what we do.
