website-frontWelcome to West Meadows Primary School and thank you for visiting our website. We hope that by browsing our site, you will get a picture of our vision, our aims and the values we uphold.

At West Meadows Primary School we strive to create a secure and happy environment which inspires high aspiration, success in all areas and creates memorable experiences. The happiness and well-being of all of our children is at the centre of everything we do. Through hard work and respecting ourselves and others, we develop and strengthen our wonderful, supportive West Meadows family.

We aim to master key skills enabling children at West Meadows to become independent, creative, considerate to others and to maximise all talents and abilities.

Our goal is for our children to leave us with the skills required to be successful in the 21st Century: problem solving, critical and creative thinking and successful team work.

We strive for excellence by working hard together to provide the very best education for our children in an environment which nurtures and cares for every individual – ensuring they will aspire ‘to be the best they can be.’

Our school’s life is underpinned by our inclusive motto,

‘Aim High, Succeed, Be Happy.’

We are very proud of our #WonderfulCommunity; if you would like further information please do not hesitate to contact us.

With kind regards,

Mr. Daniel Wood
Headteacher

Goodbye Our Lovely Miss Johnson

What we can we say? We certainly can’t sum up either Miss Johnson or her 27-year career at our lovely school in a few lines, so…… We’ll just say an enormous thank you from everyone in our #WonderfulCommunity for Miss Johnson’s dedication, kindness and considerable love that has been on display each and every single day. Congratulations to Miss Johnson on her well deserved promotion – the good news is that she is still working with our fellow academy schools so we know just where to get hold of her at the Trust Office! Congratulations Linda, and from all of us – Thank You!

Picnic in the Playground 2017

We were delighted to stage our ‘Picnic in the Playground’ to celebrate the school year. We had a fabulous turnout from our #WonderfulCommunity which even incorporated a visit from Toby Tyke himself! Many thanks to all of the staff for their organisation and of course to our amazing friends, families, Governors and children for making the afternoon one to remember. Have a wonderful summer!

Class of 2017 – Farewell

Well the moment finally arrived! And there were more than a few hankies and tissues at the ready as we said our goodbyes to our wonderful Year 6 children. The children composed their own Leavers’ Assembly for our #WonderfulCommunity as the superstars shared some wonderful memories of their time at our lovely school. We’d like to thank the families and friends of our departing stars for their support throughout their time at our school and most importantly thank the children for being a wonderful collection of West Meadows role models. Of course, “Good luck in the future!” Do as you did here and you won’t need it!”

Olympic Day in Year 5

Year 5 enjoyed closing their topic with an exciting Olympic Day. All of the children were grouped in to their own city states and each state created something for the opening ceremony: a national anthem; a traditional Greek dance; bronze, silver and gold medals; a theatrical performance and a presentation all about the Olympic Games. In the afternoon, each city state competed in our very own Olympics – well done to Sparta!

Summer Holiday 2017

Many thanks to Father Paul and Chris who visited us to deliver a very special assembly. Chris explained to us how Jesus taught his disciples to rest in holidays – we’re sure our teachers were listening to that instruction! We then completed our fundraising for the RSPB with our prize draws. Well done to Mrs. Fitzsimmons and our Year 2 Star for their success! Enjoy the wonderful music – scroll to the end to see who the musicians are!

Modeshift Stars & Welcome Mr. Mayor

We were delighted to welcome The Worshipful the Mayor of Barnsley to West Meadows to receive our Modeshift Bronze Award as part of our work in encouraging our #WonderfulCommunity to become active in our travel plans related to journeys to school. Mr. Mayor is an ex teacher and appreciated hearing our wonderful school song and commented on the excellent behaviour of our fabulous children. Thank you to Suzy Smith and our very own Mr. Smith for making our achievements a reality – we’ll be going for Silver extremely soon!

Captain’s Table 2017

MANY thanks to Mrs. Beever & Mrs. Maree for organising the 2017 Captain’s Table. Our 100% Attendees had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the adults waiting on them! They had a special bun and a present to thank them for their 100% commitment to West Meadows – next year we’re hoping for even more children to qualify! Well done everyone, a brilliant achievement.

Rounders 2017

We attended our final competition of the year; Rounders hosted by Birdwell.  The children were simply amazing from ball one, winning all three group fixtures comfortably to ease through to a final showdown against the hosts Birdwell.  A fantastic batting display saw us set a target of 7 points.  The children followed up the batting with an even better display in the field with run out after run out, restricting Birdwell to just the three points! What a way to finish the school year, also meaning we have won the Rounders competition three out of the last four years! Well done to all involved – and a special thank you to the wonderful Mr. Smith!
