Westfield Junior School

Ethos & Values

 

Vision Statement

At Westfield Junior School, we will provide high quality education in a safe, respectful and inclusive environment that builds a foundation for life-long learning.  We are committed to providing a place of excellence with high standards where children will know how to learn as well as acquire and value the essential skills and knowledge they need to be educated citizens.  Our school strives to be at the centre of the local community with positive and effective links to the wider and global communities.

 

We believe passionately that every child should enjoy their learning and feel safe and supported.  We will provide a stimulating curriculum with high-quality learning experiences that will engage, challenge and motivate children.  Together, we will continually strive to remove the barriers to success and fear of failure.

 

Children will be empowered to embrace learning, achieve their full potential in their academic achievement and build their emotional, social and physical well-being.  We will value the contribution of each individual and recognise and celebrate successes.

 

Our vision is to aspire for excellence and to positively impact on our children for the rest of their lives.
