Our Vision and Values
Where Infants Shine
At Westbury Infant School the children are at the heart of everything we do.
Our school is a caring place where ALL people are welcomed, respected, valued and nurtured. We want Westbury Infant School to be a first class centre for teaching and learning that is embedded in the Westbury community. We want each child to be able to thrive and develop so that they fulfil their potential in all areas of their education.
In partnership with parents, develop the whole child physically, spiritually, intellectually and emotionally.
To develop self-awareness and self-esteem and value the child’s achievements.
To enable children to be challenged, to feel confident to take risks in a safe and secure learning environment.
To care for each other and develop a sense of community and collective ownership.
To provide the tools to take the child forward in their learning and to develop their independence.
To see each child as an individual with their own specific needs and style of learning.
To deliver a broad and balanced curriculum which fosters their natural curiosity and promotes enquiry skills. An understanding of British Values will be encouraged within our curriculum.
Ensuring good liaison with other schools, preschools and community agencies for the benefit of children, parents and staff.
