Our school aims and vision

Our Mission
We believe, that all children have a right to an education that offers varied and exciting learning opportunities. Our vision ‘Be a Star…Shine Bright!’  demonstrates our commitment to an inspiring, innovative learning journey for West Heath Primary School children.
Our School Aims

 At our school, we pride ourselves on our ability to create a happy, safe and stimulating ethos where children are motivated to learn together. 

By maintaining high expectations of ourselves and each other, our children are equipped to encounter opportunities and challenges with resilience and determination. We aim to ensure that:

  • Children are empowered to become respected citizens who make valuable contributions to social capital.   
  • Children understand the importance of being physically active and living a happy, healthy life. 
  • Children’s cultural capital is developed through a wide range of  opportunities, trips and visits and the belief that anything is possible.
  • All children leave our school with Reading fluency


Our School Vision

At West Heath Primary School our philosophy is underpinned by our core values of: Respect, Determination, Excellence, Honesty, Collaboration, Resilience, and Empathy. We teach children how to use and understand our core values so that they can grow into reflective adults who can contribute  positively  to  society. There  is  a collective understanding that children learn best when they are inspired by their learning, when they are active and when they are physically and emotionally healthy. We employ staff who are committed to the education of the whole child and who champion each child to ‘Be a Star, Shine Bright!’ We encourage curiosity and believe that children should be able to experiment and explore so that they can make sense of the changing world in which they live.
