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.’

With kind regards,

Mr. Daniel Wood

Harvest 2017 

We staged our annual Harvest Festival at St. Peter’s Church Hoyland in front of a wonderfully supportive congregation.

Many thanks to Mrs. Evans for her coordination of this event – it was simply beautiful. Thanks to all Staff for their support of the event not least Mr. Ormondroyd for the musical accompaniment and Mr. Smith for the film. Thank you to Father Richard and Father Paul for allowing us to utilise our beautiful Church and special thanks to our #WonderfulCommunity for your support and attendance. Well done to everyone involved in this fabulous service; some wonderful messages were shared in a charming, creative and engaging way.

This week’s Headteacher’s Superstars come from Year 1 and Year 5. In Key Stage 1 our Superstar has excelled across the curriculum displaying a wonderful attitude to everything that he experiences. In Year 5, our superstar has shown tremendous resilience towards tricky areas of her learning. Her determination to improve has been inspirational and she has even demonstrated her progress to the rest of her class! Two superb West Meadows role models, really well done.

Wild Walk in Year 2

Year 2 went on an adventure on the Wild Walk organised by Mrs Roberts. We had a wonderful time making bird boxes with Hazel from the Tidy Team and Bog Babies out of clay. We even made our own hotdogs on the fire pit. We loved exploring nature it was so much fun. Thank you to the friends and families who were able to attend, we had a great time and hope that you did too!

Netball Champions

Our Years 5 and 6 Netball team attended the Annual Locality competition at Hoyland Common. The children were simply outstanding from start to finish, winning all three group matches convincingly, with some outstanding individual and teamwork, to finish top of the group and ease into the final. Just as you thought it couldn’t get any better, the children put on a display that any adult Netball team would have been proud of, blowing the opposition away, scoring three points in the opening minutes, ensuring a rather comfortable finish. As always the children were fantastic and were a real credit to themselves and school! Well done! Thanks to Mr. Smith for leading our team, they were just amazing.

Year 3 Visit Hoyland St. Peter’s Church

Year 3 have been studying Christianity and the Church! They have looked at several features of the Church, so who better to provide a guided tour than our very own parish priest and school governor, Father Richard? We had a lovely time thanks to Father Richard’s hospitality – he provided a wonderful insight into Hoyland St. Peter’s. Thank you to Mrs. Evans for arranging this opportunity.

Goodbye Miss Beever

What can we say? Firstly, good luck. Secondly, we’ll miss you! West Meadows has been extremely fortunate to have had 16 years’ service from Miss Beever, a wonderful professional. She is a credit to herself and family (we’ll look after our Jane) and we couldn’t be prouder that so many of West Meadows’ special qualities will travel so far! A life changing opportunity that Miss Beever couldn’t miss – remember she’ll still be tweeting! Fare thee well – we’ll miss you greatly!

Enterprise Challenge 2017

Years 5 and 6 enjoyed a fabulous Enterprise Day with Larger than Life. The children worked together in mixed groups to design a new musical area which would appeal to their ‘perfect customer’ again designed by the teams. The groups had to budget their ideas and include a selection of musical attractions within their play area. Everyone had a wonderful time samba drumming as well as experimenting with a range of percussive sounds. The groups then had to sell their ideas to a Dragons Den; thank you to Miss Beever, Mrs. Fitzsimmons & Miss Knox for judging. Two groups were selected as a Barnsley finalist and a St. Mary’s Academy Trust finalist. Well done to everyone who was involved and thank you to St. Mary’s Academy Trust and to Larger than Life for providing such a wonderful entrepreneurial and fun day at West Meadows!

Also thanks again to Mr. Smith & Miss Bennett for accompanying the team and making this event possible with the help of St. Mary’s Academy Trust Sports Leaders. A wonderful afternoon in an amazing facility.
