Our Learning Behaviours

At West Hill Primary School, we truly believe that ‘learning’ is the first step to success.  All children have the potential to learn, but ‘learning to learn’ equips our pupils with the skills to be effective, lifelong learners.

It is our aim to support and prepare all our pupils for the challenges that may face them in the future.  To help them develop the belief, capability and determination to be the best that they can be.
