About our school

West Hill Primary School is a happy, secure, friendly and welcoming school, with a true family atmosphere, in which all staff and pupils are positive, caring and optimistic – and they smile! The staff, governors and pupils alike enjoy what they do and do it very well. Our school community has high expectations, both in terms of achievement and behaviour, and everyone is expected to do their best and to use their special gifts and talents, at their own particular level. At West Hill Primary School, all members of the school family and the contributions they make to the school are greatly valued. Courtesy and politeness is expected at all times, and people are always acknowledged and thanked for what they do.

Our last Ofsted Inspection (June 2007) states: ‘West Hill Primary is an outstanding school. Pupils achieve exceptionally well and attain high standards in many areas of the curriculum. Their personal development is outstanding. Parents are extremely happy with the care and education provided and are very supportive of the school. One parent summed up the views of many with the comment, ‘I am delighted that my children attend this successful school’.


The headteacher is well supported by senior staff and subject leaders who all make a valuable contribution to the school’s high performance. The school has an accurate view of how well it is doing and has taken highly effective action to bring about improvements where necessary. An extremely positive atmosphere pervades the school and there is a clear commitment from staff to maintaining high standards and providing a high quality education for all pupils.
