Welcome to Westgarth Primary School
A warm welcome to Westgarth Primary. We are incredibly proud of our school community and hope you enjoy finding out more about us.
At our school, the uniqueness of every child is recognised and valued. We have ambition for all children by constantly adapting our learning journey to meet the needs and interests of all, and we aim to offer an excellent education delivered through a broad, culturally rich and powerful curriculum to ensure that all pupils are well equipped for the next stages in their education and lives.
Our curriculum is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values; however, creativity is pivotal at Westgarth. We provide a menu of enhancement opportunities to engage learning and to celebrate and develop the individual needs and talents of our children, recognising all children as unique with their own ambitions, skills and dreams. We aim to provide an environment that encourages lifelong learning and supports well- being, mental health and happiness.
Community involvement is also an essential part of our curriculum as we celebrate local traditions, and the learning of new skills, to enable children to take an active role in events across the year, whenever we can.
We want children to leave Westgarth Primary with a sense of belonging and a collective identity. We want them to be kind, compassionate and appreciative members of society who celebrate others’ achievements. We strive for them to have developed the confidence and skills needed to be learners for life.
