A warm welcome from Westmere
A very warm welcome to Westmere Primary School, where we are committed to working in partnership with parents, to ensure every child achieves their full potential, feels safe and happy at school, and develops a love of learning. Pupils say that, ‘They said that they feel safe and that they know there is always a member of staff they can speak to if they are worried about anything. Leaders prioritise pupils’ well-being’ (Ofsted 2021). We have high expectations of all members of our community and this includes working together to make sure all children have good attendance and arrive on time every day so they are able to fully access our ‘effective curriculum’ (Ofsted 2021). We expect the best from our children and support them to give this. We ‘ensure reading is a priority’ (Ofsted 2021), as we believe reading unlocks many opportunities both academically and socially.
The Griffin Federation, of three schools, aims to be at the heart of the villages we serve. We feel that working in partnership with the whole community will lead towards a society of hope, where we raise aspirations for our school family and allow them to become the very best members of the community they can be. We will endeavour to ensure that the teachings of justice and forgiveness are lived out by all.
Every member of our community is valued, and valuable. We will pursue excellence for all, including our most vulnerable, by providing the support and challenge they require to reach their full potential. We will do this in an inclusive environment, where the well-being of everyone is nurtured with dignity and compassion, so that any difficulties experienced can be overcome.
