Welcome to Western Community Primary School!
I would like to extend a very warm welcome to you on behalf of our whole school community.
 
I am extremely privileged to be the Head Teacher of Western Community Primary School in Wallsend.  Our school is vibrant, inclusive and very determined to provide the best opportunities for the children of Wallsend and neighbouring areas.  Respect is at the heart of everything we do and we believe our school to be a unique blend of traditional values and innovative, creative, educational practice. Western is a very special place. We are immensely proud of our school and our community and are committed to ensuring every child's primary years are exceptional.  

If you are in the process of selecting a school for your child, we know that this can be a difficult decision. We are delighted that you are considering Western and can guarantee that we will work tirelessly to create the wonderful memories that make school the best years of your child's life. We want our children to feel valued and cherished, and to leave us as confident, creative, caring and highly skilled individuals who feel that the world is their oyster.

Strong partnership between home and school is critical and we have lots of opportunities for families to get involved in the life of the school. 
I hope we have the opportunity to work with you and your family in the years ahead to prepare your child for a lifetime of success.

HMI Early Years Best Practice Filming at Western

I am delighted to share some exciting news with you. The Ofsted/HMI filming project in Early Years that we were asked to be part of in May 2015 has now been published on the Ofsted YouTube channel as a national example of best practice in the Early Years. The filming led by Mr Lee Owsten, HMI, National Lead for Early Years focused on the outstanding Teaching and Learning in our Nursery and Reception. We are hugely proud of our provision and delighted that our practice has been recognised as innovative, creative and exemplary. The three short videos are accessible on the Ofsted website:
