At the heart of the work and purpose of Westfield Primary School, are our children. Our vision, is for all Westfield children to foster a ‘Love of Learning and a Love of Life,’ enabling them to excel, be the best they can and achieve the necessary life skills for their future.
We aim to provide the highest quality of education for all our children, in an environment that is challenging, motivating, disciplined, caring, kind and moral, where children can acquire the skills and knowledge appropriate to their individual needs through the delivery of a creative curriculum. Every child is entitled to a broad and balanced curriculum. This provides opportunities for individuals to acquire knowledge, skills and understanding; promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical well-being and development of our pupils; and prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. We pledge to offer a range of exciting learning and life experiences.
Promoting a lifelong enjoyment of reading and a love of books underpins our curriculum and the use of high quality, exciting and stimulating texts is a key feature across the school.
The school has a clear, consistent, whole school approach to the teaching of phonics. We know that high quality teaching of phonics is the key to developing independent readers and it is given the highest priority. We want every child to be a reader, to learn to read quickly and continue to read widely and often. We use the Read Write Inc. Phonics programme, which delivers intensive and rapid phonics teaching and learning.
The children’s emotional well-being is a high priority for the school and this is embedded in the curriculum, we also provide many additional opportunities for the children to learn, recognise and manage their own well-being.
