William Westley Church of England Primary School Let your light shine

'Let your light shine before others that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven' Matthew 5:16

Headteacher Welcome



“Let your light shine” is at the heart of all that we do; inspiring us to live life to the full through positivity, kindness, celebration, self-worth, respect and self-control. Our deeply Christian vision encapsulates the school’s commitment to provide a nourishing education which is deep and broad, inspiring our children with a love of learning and responsible citizenship.


The world is an exciting and amazing place with so much to discover, to enjoy, to experience, and consequently to learn.  We are privileged as a primary school to work with you as your child continues to take those early steps of discovery; full of wonder, expectation, creativity and imagination. We aim to nurture a life-long love of learning by building independence, commitment and determination.


The world can also present challenges to overcome and it is our aim to provide an education in its fullest sense that will help your child to be confident in who they are and in their relationships with others, so that they will be able to live life in all its fullness. We are determined that William Westley CE Primary School is a place where individuals are cherished for who they are, where children can develop their own unique gifts and talents, realise and grow with support and security, and appreciate the rights of others to be special and valued people too. William Westley CE Primary School aims to provide an environment of security, challenge, opportunity, fun, care and love in which individuals can flourish.


We view education in this broad sense, as a joint responsibility between the staff in school and yourselves as parents and carers.  We believe that the best for your child can be achieved through a partnership between home and school. We hope that you will share with us in making this a happy and successful stage in your child’s life. My staff and I are always available to discuss any aspect of your child’s education.


We would welcome you to come and get a fuller understanding and appreciation of our school; please telephone if you have any questions or would like to visit – it would be a delight to meet you.


Mr Andrew Westcott
