Blossoming together through nurture and challenge

On behalf of all of the staff at Westfield Infant School, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you all via our school website.

We all recognise the importance of the time your child will spend at school and are keen to ensure your child is happy and achieving his or her potential in a secure, supportive, friendly, fun and stimulating environment.

Whilst your child is with us over the infant years of their educational learning journey, our aim is to provide an enjoyable, enriched, creative learning challenge curriculum; which is underpinned by the essential skills of reading, writing and mathematics.

I hope you enjoy learning more about our welcoming, friendly infant school through our website. If you cannot find the information that you require please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

About Us

Our Vision at Westfield Infants

‘Blossoming together through nurture and challenge’ 
 
Our vision is to help our children become happy, self-confident, independent and responsible learners. The school community has committed to work together to help children achieve their potential by providing a nurturing, caring and safe environment where we respect and value each other’s strengths and differences. 
 
Our Values at Westfield Infants: 
  • The key values that we hold are: 
  • To have high aspirations in all aspects of the school’s work.
  • To create an environment of openness, honesty, kindness, fairness and respect in line with British Values.
  • A commitment to inspirational teaching and learning that attains the highest standards. 
  • To make a positive contribution to the wider community. 
Statement on British Values 
At Westfield Infant School we actively promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We aim to help our children develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will enable them to become responsible citizens who are tolerant, respect other and are able to challenge prejudical and discriminating behaviour. We will promote these values throughout all aspects of school life. We will endeavor to do this with care and sensitivity, ensuring that we promote inclusivity and unity between pupils, parents and our community.
