Welcome to Westways, a friendly and supportive school.
Please feel free to contact school to arrange a visit if you would like your child to benefit from everything Westways has to offer.
Mr Martin Fallon (Executive Headteacher)
Westways is a large three-form entry school in a popular residential area close to the city’s hospitals and universities. You will find us welcoming, friendly and fun. We have three separate Victorian buildings providing lots of space to learn. Our Early Years Foundation Stage Nursery and Reception classes are in the Warwick building including an outdoor learning area with lots of activities. Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2), ages 5 to 7, are in Mona building. Our school kitchen, where meals are cooked on site is in this building and a large hall space where lunches are served for the whole school. Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6), ages 8 to 11, are in the Western building. Please follow the link to view Westways map of classrooms.
Vision & Values
Our school's vision is...
We enjoy therefore we achieve
Our love of learning inspires us to achieve and by nurturing our shared core values, we are prepared for, and ready to make a difference in, the wider world.
Westways Core Values: Aspiration; Empathy; Independence; Resilience; Respect; Citizenship
Our assemblies are non-denominational and hope to promote the principles of positive concern and respect.
Assemblies are also a time of coming together and celebrating the ‘successes’ in our school. Celebration assemblies are held every Friday and are enjoyed by both staff and pupils.
Parents who wish to have their child excluded from religious education and/or assemblies should consult with the Headteacher.
We actively promote a healthy lifestyle for all children through a variety of activities, for example we promote the ‘Daily Mile’ initiative in Key Stage 2 and include a range of additional opportunties and activities as part of our currciulum and extra curricular programme..
As part of the Government’s ‘Fruit and Vegetable Scheme,’ all children in Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 are given fresh fruit or vegetables each day as a way of promoting healthy eating.
We ask that children in Key Stage 2 provide their own fruit and vegetables as a snack at playtimes.
We also encourage families to have healthy lunchboxes if bringing their lunch from home. Please do not send chocolate, sweets, crisps or fizzy drinks as part of packed lunches.
