Aims and Values
Our Aims and Values at Westmeads
At Westmeads we have:
- A school where everyone has high expectations of each other and shares responsibility for their behaviour and attitude to learning. Independence, perseverance and resilience are actively encouraged
- An environment that promotes good communication, where everyone is heard and their opinions are understood, valued and respected
- A healthy school community which nurtures honesty and kindness, where children feel secure and understand how to keep themselves safe
- A rich and relevant curriculum that encourages curiosity building on the strengths of individuals within the school, offering strong links with the community and a wide range of creative and sporting opportunities
- A focus on children’s learning and high standards are at the core of all aspects of school life
This statement was discussed and agreed by all staff, governors and our School Council.
From this statement we took our 6 core values. We focus on one of these each term in our assemblies.
Curiosity Honesty Love and Kindness Respect Independence Perseverance
