Our Mission Statement
We are a happy and proud school. We believe that we provide a safe and secure environment that nurtures a love of learning. We aim to develop the whole person by providing happy and memorable times whilst creating opportunities for challenge and success. We prepare our pupils to become considerate and responsible members of society and we firmly believe that children best succeed when they are engaged in their learning.
Our staff team is our strength and we passionately believe in the value of education and the doors it can open. Parents and carers have an extremely important role to play in ensuring our children achieve their potential. This happens when we all work together considering the strengths and needs of everyone in our school community.
Our aim is to develop confident children who value themselves, each other and the wider world. We encourage all our children to reach for the stars-they can be anything they want to be.

Safeguarding - Keeping Children Healthy and Safe from Harm
We take our role in safeguarding your children very seriously. Please read our Safeguarding Statement.
If you already have a degree and are interested in training to be a primary teacher, we have a great opportunity available. Yeadon Westfield Infants is joining together with 4 other local primary schools to offer PGCE teacher training through Leeds Beckett University, next academic year (2019-20). UCAS is now accepting applications for this course. Access the UCAS teacher training website and search ‘Aireborough Partnership’, course code ‘2JF’. Here you will find more details about the course. If you would like any more information about this fantastic opportunity, please contact Ms Lowry through the school office.
The days are finally getting longer and everyone in school is working very hard. This is the half term when we really see the children blossom! As usual it has been a busy half term. There has been a significant amount of staff training and meetings. We have carefully considered the progress the children are making. We are also pleased to announce that our KS1 Maths results for 2018 were in the top 10% nationally! This is a huge achievement for both staff and children and evidence of all the hard work!
We have been hosting the Groove Generation project which involves schools in the area working with professional musicians. We have seen some children begin to blossom through their involvement in this work which has been amazing. Other inter school work has involved senior leaders working with those from other schools as part of the Aireborough Learning Partnership Trust. We also enjoyed Y1 Blue’s fabulous assembly on The Owl Babies. The children were all amazing!
Last week was E Safety Week and the children were doing some focused work around keeping safe. Please ask them about their learning. We also had a day on Monday learning about women in Science which was very interesting. Miss Worton introduced the topic with a great assembly.
Have a lovely break and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday 25th February at 8:55am.
