Our school aims and vision
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. Our agreed aims are:
- Through Values Education, empower all children to become respected citizens who make valuable contributions to social capital.
- By paying attention to the whole child, make sure that children understand the importance of being physically active and living a happy, healthy life.
- Ensure that all children leave our school with reading fluency.
Our School Philosophy
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.
