REACH FOR THE STARS... 21st March is World Downs Syndrome 'Lots of Socks' Day and we are raising the children's awareness by wearing odd socks on Wednesday. Improved attendance again with 96% and double WINITS this week for those attending on time every day. Well done Westerhope - the sponsored children did a wonderful job raising money for more books.


Welcome to Westerhope  Primary School - it is a fun, friendly and busy school where children, staff, parents and governors work in partnership together. I am committed to leading this school forward so that we achieve the best possible educational outcomes for the children in this community.


At Westerhope Primary School, we strongly believe all of our children are ‘special and unique’ who can become confident and capable learners. We aim for our children to thrive both academically and socially. Our curriculum has been created to achieve these aspirations for all. It is underpinned by four key drivers. These are:


  • Possibilities - equipping our children with the skills and qualities needed so they can embrace life’s challenges
  • Making a difference - using their skills, knowledge and beliefs to impact positively on the wider community.
  • Books build brains - quality literature allows our children to broaden their horizons and knowledge of the world
  • Adventure - opportunities to develop resilience through exploring and having fun.


At Westerhope you will find us all striving to 'reach for the stars'. Our school motto is important to our pupils because they want to be the best we can be. Our teachers are committed to teach to a high standard with expectations of pupils' learning and behaviour to match. We are passionate about providing our children with a variety of educational experiences and opportunities across all subjects. Our governors challenge and support the school to improve year on year.


The website aims to provide key information as well as giving you a glimpse of life and learning at our school.


Westerhope is a formal partner of the Outer West Learning Trust and an associate of the Walbottle Village Teaching School Alliance. We have been recently Ofsted inspected - this and other key information is available on our website. Feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have. Please look at our global aims and the British values we advocate as well as our 'Class Pages' and  'Curriculum in Action' pages to view our learning.
