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

What a way to end an amazing week. Key Stage 1 and the Key Stage 2 shared their wonderful Creative Arts Week work on Africa with our #WonderfulCommunity. The amazing Afemai Children’s Trust, a registered charity working with children in the UK, promoting equality, diversity and cultural heritage have worked with Miss Steele to prepare an incredible experience for our wonderful young people. See for yourself just how hard the children have worked. Thank you to every visitor, every member of staff and of course the stars of the show – our children, for making this week such a magnificent success.

Year 1 Handa’s Surprise

This week we have been learning the story of Handa’s Surprise. We used our art skills to create each scene from the story. The children each painted a sunset and then cut out silhouettes of the animals from the book. Some beautiful work, well done Year 1.

Kielder Challenge 2017

The seven lovely schools of St. Mary’s Academy Trust came to West Meadows to take part in the Kielder Challenge. Each and every child was amazing and showed us just how to work in a team correctly in order to complete four different challenges, quickly and efficiently. A big well done to the overall winners St Mary’s! Good luck to them when they attend the South Yorkshire Finals on July 5th.

Stunt Show 2017

What an afternoon! Thanks to our #WonderfulCommunity and our work in The Big Pedal, we were lucky to host the amazing Danny Butler on our School Field. Funny, entertaining, incredibly skilful – the list of Danny’s qualities goes on and on. Enjoy his incredible show here, we all loved his talents and we know so many of us were inspired by what we saw. Many thanks to ‘Bike It Dave’ and Mr. Smith for their work in promoting cycling and to everyone who has supported the initiative – this prize was simply brilliant.

Enterprise Extravaganza

The West Meadows winning Enterprise Team were excellent ambassadors as they represented school at the Holiday Inn, Dodworth.  The children had a fun packed day where lots of schools came together to form a huge samba band, they practised their enterprise pitch and eventually met the judges for the real thing.   It was an amazing experience for all – one which we would definitely recommend!
