West Park Primary Vision and Aims
We believe in developing the whole child in a caring and nurturing environment. We endeavour to foster in all our children a love of learning so that they have the necessary skills to become ambitious and capable lifelong learners who are enterprising and approach new challenges with a positive and optimistic attitude. We encourage pupils to identify their strengths as well as to continually improve and achieve to the best of their ability. We aim to inspire in all our pupils strong values and a sense of empathy so they can develop as ethical informed citizens who are confident and show respect for themselves, each other and indeed for the whole of this exciting world.
