West Road Primary is an exciting, happy and vibrant learning community, serving the village of Moorends - we are all learners. We were judged as good by Ofsted in June 2018 and our young people achieve outcomes in reading, writing and maths which are above, often well above, national averages.

At West Road we put children at the heart of everything we do. We believe that every child can achieve amazing things and it is our job to deliver a rich and personalised education, unlocking doors and creating a love of learning, so that every child is empowered and has the opportunity to choose their own future. We provide a nurturing, inspiring environment, maintaining high expectations and challenge in all that we do – enabling each child to develop the resilience, confidence and independence required to succeed. We pride ourselves on our essential life skills offer – extending learning well beyond the school gates. At West Road, we turn mirrors into windows.

All that we do is underpinned by our West Best Skills For Lifelong Learning:
