Westfield Primary School is a 4 – 11 school with approximately 157 pupils on roll.
At Westfield we aim to provide a happy environment, which encourages respect for people and property, values the ‘home-school partnership’, promotes excellence and a sense of achievement in a stimulating and caring environment.
The governors, staff and pupils recognise that the school is at the centre of our community. We believe that diversity is a strength which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit here. At Westfield your child is at the centre of everything we do. We give the children a wide range of valuable learning experiences that will help them to grow in confidence, understanding and independence. We encourage all children to learn and discover in all areas of the National Curriculum and Religious Education (RE). We are committed to raising standards in all aspects of school life.
Through the activities we provide, we aim to encourage children to share and care for others. In our daily assemblies and throughout the day we try to foster caring attitudes, understanding and concern for others. We have simple rules that are for the safety and well being of your child. We are sure that you will help and encourage your child to follow them. It is important that parents and teachers work closely together for the benefit of the children. We seek your help and co-operation if difficulties do arise. Our concern is for the happiness and well being of your child during their time at Westfield Primary School.
To continually strive to raise standards by:

- Providing every pupil with the opportunity to realise his or her full potential in a well ordered, happy and supportive environment, where expectations are high.
- Promoting the self-esteem of every pupil so that he or she may relate confidently with and show empathy for others.
- Promoting a partnership between school, pupils, parents, governors and the community.
- Meeting all the requirements of the National Curriculum and setting challenging targets.
- Making all pupils aware of the influence of Christian values upon our society and to introduce the beliefs and customs of other faiths.
- Providing a wealth of learning experiences to develop children’s life skills.
