We are very proud of our school and children. We believe it is a good school where our children are happy, nurtured and supported to achieve their full potential.

It is our vision that our school should be part of a harmonious learning community where children are challenged to achieve their best and valued as individuals.

We strive to create a purposeful learning environment in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect.

Our ‘Believe and Achieve’ ethos encourages all stakeholders to do their very best by the children and also looks to develop pupil resilience and levels of self-belief.

We have experienced teachers and teaching assistants, who are fully committed to helping every child learn and achieve to the best of their ability.

Our school is both supported by and supportive of the community of Weston Rhyn and the wider area. We have positive links with the local community groups and sports clubs and we participate in events throughout the calendar to enrich the learning and life skills of our children.

Our school has continued to improve over the last few years. Work has taken place to strengthen the teaching of phonics through the introduction of a new systematic synthetic phonics programme. In addition, recent development work has also focused on improving the school curriculum from Early Years to Year 6
