Welcome 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
We have had so much fun this half term on Wild Walk. I am very proud of all the children for taking part in the RSPB Wild Challenge for schools. We have completed enough activities to earn a SILVER award for our school and will be working towards GOLD after the holiday. Here a few pictures to show you what we have been up to. Thanks everyone!! Mrs Roberts #wildchallenge
The children have been researching different ways to find out what people think Hoyland needs to make it great. We believe it need a Sculpture which represents our heritage and history. Our sculpture includes mining, canals, Newcoman’s engine, the markets and the people. We are hoping that the council will agree and grant permission for the commission of this spectacular piece of art. Watch this space for the finished sculpture and hopefully a positive reply from the town hall!
Our topic this term is Survival and we have been focussing on the devastation caused by natural disasters. We are currently learning all about what survival equipment is needed to help those that have been involved in a natural disaster. Today, The Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team visited West Meadows to teach us all about the survival equipment they use. We all explored the land rover, saved a few casualties and tried on some survival gear! It has been an amazing morning! Our next job is to design a new piece of survival equipment for them to use. Watch this space…
What an amazing morning we had at St. Peter’s Church (thank you Father Parker) where we held our Harvest Festival. EYFS 2, Year 1 and Year 2 provided a wonderful celebration of our crops and natural foods. The support from our #WonderfulCommunity was just amazing – standing room only in fact! Well done to everybody for some superb singing, wonderful art work and perfect behaviour. Thank you to Mrs. Evans and all of the staff that made us all so proud of our wonderful children.
Year 4 have had a great day fine tuning their carving and cutting skills. I’m sure you’ll agree they have done a spookily great job!
What a treat! Those children with 100% attendance worked with Freddy Fit. We saw some amazing team work – none more so than in our Year 6 Session where the F1 stars loved their leadership! Well done to everybody who was able to attend the workshops – the perfect attendance certainly proves to be rewarded at West Meadows!
Mrs. Yates is SO proud of our Clarinet Stars that she is keen we demonstrate their progress! No problem Mrs. Yates – the Y6 and Y4 Clarinet Stars are really improving and we are extremely proud of their progress. Enjoy their super sounds here.
Two gentlemen have scooped the week’s top prize and deservedly so. In Year 6 Mrs. Brown has been delighted with her role model, “He consistently gives 100% to all aspects of learning and he is a good ambassador for the school when he represents us in out of school competitions.” A perfect endorsement.
In Year 2, Mrs. Evans and Mr. Newton were united in their recommendation as thus star was nominated , “because of his mature behaviour and attitude to work. He is zooming along in his learning and rising to all the challenges of year 2 – Well done!”
So – two wonderful ambassadors for our lovely school. Well done boys.
Our EYFS Superstars love the Dough Disco – this wonderful, fun activity helps improve lots of their Gross Motor Skills – look at how clever they are! D I S C O……
