Christian Distinctiveness

"Inspirational and dynamic leadership has created a culture of love, respect and relentless compassion at Westbury. Leaders at all levels are committed to ensuring that the school’s distinctive Christian vision, underpinned by the biblical text, John 10:10(b) ‘I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full ’, is lived out daily."

OUR VISION:

Through our core Christian values of respect, friendship, perseverance and forgiveness, our Westbury family is one body, shaping the spirit, achieving together and learning for life, so that all may flourish as unique children of God.

 

Our school's core values are: Respect, Friendship, Perseverance and Forgiveness

As a Church school, we believe each person is made in the image of God. We strive to reflect the love of God, love of life and love of learning in all that we do.

"Parents and carers appreciate the nurturing, community ethos of the school and the approachability of the staff team. They value the partnerships you have established with parents and the work of the school to support pupils’ individual needs and interests. Parents typically commented that ‘There is a genuine interest in each and every child.’."

Our Spirituality Statement

'Encouraging who you are and what makes you unique as a child of God.'

Created by the children and owned by us all

"The school has an exceptionally deep understanding of spiritual growth. Its spirituality statement, created by the children, is represented pictorially by their Tree of Life. This binds all aspects of the schools vision, values and spirituality together. Pupils articulate how, like the fruits on the tree, they grow in the love of God and like seeds, pass that love on. Interactive opportunities for prayer and reflection, both private and collective, exist throughout the school and in all classes including outdoors, further deepening spirituality. "
