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

Advent Assembly

 

Father Richard led our School in our Advent Assembly where we looked at the beautiful Wreath made by Mrs. Lyn Crossland (Mrs. Walton’s Mum) – thanks SO much again, and remembered the first candle represents Hope. Thank you also to Father Richard who visited us to explain this period. The different candles on our Advent Ring commemorate different things – white is for the birth of Jesus and this candle is lit on Christmas Day. The first candle is for the Patriarch then the second for the prophets. The pink candle is for the third Sunday of advent and the 4th candle for Mary, mother of Jesus.

Souper Donations

Rather than buying each other Christmas Cards, staff at West Meadows have decided to donate tins/ cans of soup to the Salvation Army. We know the kind donations will be greatly received across the local community. A fabulous idea, thank you Mrs. Dewson for the inspiration.

Christmas Fayre 2018        

 

West Meadows staged our annual Christmas Fayre and as always it proved to be extremely popular as always. Each class provided a fantastic stall full of Christmas goods and of course a highlight was the visit from Santa making a wonderful afternoon all in all. Our community turned out in force and managed to raise the wonderful sum of £xxxx which will be used to heavily subsidise exciting experiences for our children. Friends of West Meadows, led by Mrs. Claire Maree, have again provided a fabulous event so MANY thanks to them and to everyone who was able to support us!

We have a wonderful day thanks to the visit of professional artist Rosie Pearsall. The children used cinnamon to add texture to their completed Christmas Cards. They also created Christmas Tree decorations from air drying terracotta clay. A fantastic day was enjoyed by all!
