Vision and Aims

Westdale Junior School strives to be a school that is safe, happy and inclusive for all, where pupils and staff enjoy attending and learning.

We aim to provide a calm, stable, caring community where all children are encouraged to develop a lifelong interest in learning and know that both they and their work are valued.

We aim to encourage mutual respect and understanding between individuals and groups, and co-operative attitudes, which help to develop children’s self-esteem.

We aim to promote relationships between our pupils, teachers, parents and governors which are of a high quality.

We aim to provide equal opportunities for all pupils in all areas of the curriculum in order that they may develop their full academic, creative and physical potential.

We aim to provide a curriculum that is challenging, creative, differentiated, broad, balanced and individualised.

We aim to ensure that all pupils learn, to the best of their ability, the skills, knowledge and attitudes that will enable them to grow into responsible, well-motivated and tolerant members of society, able to cope successfully and happily with the situations that they will meet. In order to take full advantage of the opportunities that the future has to offer for them.

We look forward to working in partnership with you to achieve our vision. Your support is crucial to your child’s progress at school, particularly in developing positive attitudes towards work and behaviour, so as to achieve the high standards that we expect in both.
