Message from the Head Teacher

Western Road Primary School has seven single year group classes catering for children aged 4+ to 11 with about 210 children on roll.

Western Road Community Primary School’s philosophy of education is underpinned by a passionate belief in the development of the whole child – academically, physically, socially, spiritually and emotionally.

We support a creative cross-curricular approach to learning, with high expectations of children’s achievement, delivered by excellent teaching.  Through this approach, children will experience the joys of discovery, solving problems and being creative within all subjects, while developing the self-confidence to engage in and challenge their world.  Through a broad and balanced curriculum, we encourage our children to be active participants in their learning journey as they acquire the skills, knowledge and attitudes that will enable them to achieve their greatest potential

We have high expectations of children’s behaviour, as we believe that children will only achieve their full potential in an inclusive environment, in which they feel safe and secure, where they are encouraged to strive for improvement and where success is recognised and rewarded.  The use of positive behaviour strategies is vital in creating a happy, nurturing, mutually respectful and creative learning environment.

To fulfil this vision for our children, we strive for our school to be a learning community in which parents and carers are partners in their child’s education and in which our staff are encouraged and supported to develop professionally, enabling them to provide an academic, emotional, physical, spiritual and social education of the highest standard.
