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

Harvest 2018

 

We staged our annual Harvest Festival at St. Peter’s Church Hoyland in front of a wonderfully supportive congregation. Children from EYFS 2 and Years 1-2 gave a superb performance of art, poetry, prayer and song to celebrate the fruits of the earth. 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.
