Welcome to West Vale Primary School, Halifax
I hope you enjoy visiting our web site and finding out about some of the exciting and interesting things that take place in our school.
Here at West Vale School everyone works together as a team to ensure we have a strong learning community. In fact we like to think of our school as a big family where everyone involved with the school has an important part to play in supporting and encouraging each other.
We all work to help our children succeed academically but, just as importantly, we want our children to grow in confidence and self-esteem and to give them the many social skills they will need as they move on through life.
As I walk around the school it is wonderful to see the way the children behave and work. There is always an atmosphere of purposeful activity; a buzz when the children are working in groups on investigative activities and a calm, quiet environment when concentration is required.
As you will discover as you browse through the web site, the children have a big voice in the school. We have a School Council, Buddies, Play Leaders and a house team system all of which encourage the children to participate in school life and develop leadership skills. The children certainly keep the staff ‘on their toes’ with their suggestions and ideas.
If you would like to visit the school we hold a number open days and coffee mornings throughout the year, which you would be very welcome to attend. Alternatively please ring the school office and make an appointment. I look forward to welcoming you.
