Welcome from the Head Teacher

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit our school website.  I am delighted to be Headteacher here at West View Primary School, having started as Deputy Headteacher in April 2020.

As a school, we see ourselves on a journey of improvement towards outstanding, striving to be the very best that we can be for the pupils and community that we serve. This journey has taken a ‘curious’ direction over recent months, as we have begun to transform our learning environment and pedagogy across school, inspired by the works and ideas of Reggio Emelia, Montessori and The Curiosity Approach. We have been fortunate enough to visit other schools for inspiration and support and we continue to work with these like-minded professionals in order to develop and refine what we are doing. Our ‘curious journey’ has progressed rapidly in a short space of time and we look forward to seeing this go from strength to strength as we begin The Curiosity Approach Accreditation.

Our school vision ‘Dream Big. Aim High. Shine Bright’ underpins all that we do at West View. The children are at the very heart of every action we take and every decision that we make because we want to ensure that every child has high aspirations for themselves and for what they can go on to achieve. I am fortunate to work alongside a team of dedicated and committed staff who are as passionate as I am about ensuring that school is the very best that it can be. We pride ourselves on being fully inclusive and on having strong relationships with our parents, carers and wider community: I am so proud of the work that we have already done to strengthen these relationships – something which has been externally validated and rewarded with our recently successful Leading Parent Partnership Award.

We hope that you like what you see on our new website and that you can navigate it easily in order to find what you are looking for. As well as this new-look website, we also maintain a high profile across social media platforms – Facebook, Twitter and, most recently, Instagram. We would strongly encourage you to visit these platforms in order to see more of what we do.
