In order to safeguard our children at West Grove Primary School it is essential that all children arrive at and leave school at the end of the day with a safe adult. We appreciate that for many families, arrangements need to be flexible and it may be that a few people care for the child after school.
We follow the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) curriculum which is a learning through play, exploration and discovery curriculum. Learning opportunities are based on observations of the children. Adults work flexibly and creatively, evaluating their provision and ensuring that children reach their full potential.
The Equality Policy is supported by the school’s vision and values which give us purpose, direction and meaning in everything we do. We tackle discrimination and promote equality and good relationships across all areas of school activity and decision making.
