Head of School Welcome

Welcome to West Minster Primary School.

It is a privilege to welcome you to our website and give you a flavour of our inclusive happy school.
We aim to be at the heart of our community and care about the provision we offer all our pupils.

From Nursery to year six each child has the benefit of staff dedicated to encouraging them along the journey of learning and discovery, within the security of a caring atmosphere where all staff and in partnership with parents/carers work together. Our link with parents/carers is extremely important and we hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find any information you are looking for. However please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.

West Minster is a happy school where success of every child really matters.
Thank you for visiting our website.
