Dear Parents, Carers and Colleagues
We would like to warmly welcome you to Westerton Primary School, an educational centre of excellence where we pride ourselves on our ability to develop all aspects of our learners. Whilst under our guidance, we diligently aim to maximise the educational opportunities of all our children, helping them to identify and fulfil their potential whilst becoming valuable citizens who contribute positively to society.
Our emphasis on academic success is matched by our commitment to developing high artistic standards, physical prowess and an understanding that emotional well-being can be fostered through enriching, positive opportunities to collaborate, support and compete.
A tour of our learning environment reveals confident, enthusiastic young people who are willing to learn and enjoy new challenges. They question, experiment and persevere as they engage with and apply new knowledge, skills and understanding. Their respect and encouragement for each other is derived from the safety of knowing each and every person is valued, diversity is embraced and personalised approaches ensure individual needs are addressed.
Pupil voice is strong at Westerton, it resounds through the School Council to be heard by our supportive Governing Body and extremely committed staff team. The contribution of parents working in harmony with the school is also highly valued and cannot be overestimated. We firmly believe that a strong partnership between home and school begins before a child even enters the classroom. We enjoy working closely with parents, providing information and plentiful opportunities to engage, in order to forge that essential bond to maximise the life chances of every child. We look forward to meeting you in person.

We must bid farewell to Mrs Northveth, one of our lunch assistants. Many thanks for your help and support Mrs Northveth and all the best for the future.

Many children are still braving the colder temperatures and travelling on scooters and bikes, well done and thank you. Please remember NOT to ride them anywhere on the playground. .

Many children drink water from our cups in the hall at lunchtime and, whilst there are drinking cups also in year group areas, we do encourage the use of personal refillable drink bottles.
