Head's Welcome (Values and Ethos)
Hello! My name is Rachel Roberts, and I am very proud to be the Headteacher at Westlands First School.
I would like to welcome you to our school website, a virtual door to a warm, welcoming and caring school where every child is valued and all children are encouraged to achieve their full potential. Our School vision is ‘Let’s be the best we can be’ and this is very much at the heart of everything we do.
As a school we pride ourselves on developing strong relationships with parents and carers, building lasting partnerships which will benefit your children long into the future.
We firmly believe that in order to fulfill their potential at school, each child must feel happy, confident and secure – with friends whose company they enjoy and teachers whom they trust and respect. Our school is a very close knit community; a place for work, but also a place to be enjoyed; somewhere to learn and somewhere to grow.
We work hard to establish a safe learning environment where children feel confident to stretch themselves and explore their ideas. Our Behaviour Policy sets clear boundaries and expectations, encouraging our pupils to make good choices through positive behaviour management strategies. As a result, our children are polite, well mannered and establish excellent learning behaviours.
It is our ambition to equip all of our children with the key skills and values they will need to thrive in our rapidly changing world. We actively encourage children to develop a curiosity about the world, and a love of learning, in the belief that this will encourage them to become lifelong learners.
I am incredibly proud to be the Headteacher of this delightful school and warmly welcome visits from any parents or carers who wish to find out more.
If you would like to pop in, please telephone our office. We would love the opportunity to show you what the Westlands family is all about.
