Where the learning journey is an adventure

Our Ethos



To ensure the Learning Journey is an Adventure.



We have five main values which underpin our vision for the children at West Town Lane.

  • Respect – We respect each other’s rights. We treat others as we like to be treated.
  • Adventure – Our learning journey will be engaging and motivating; it will develop curiosity about the world around us.
  • Determination – We will try our best at everything we do.
  • Achievement – We will strive to meet our full potential, both in our learning and our personal lives.
  • Resilience – We demonstrate Growth Mindsets; we never give up!



Develop learners who:

  • Achieve their full potential in everything they do, whatever their starting point;
  • Are determined to succeed, who persevere and never give up;
  • Are curious, enthusiastic and reflective;
  • Can work collaboratively and independently and are excellent communicators.

Develop 21st century citizens who:

  • Respect each other’s rights and our British Values;
