Being a small school we are able to provide individual care that enables children to flourish and grow as individuals. Pastoral care at West Lodge is second to none and looking after the children to ensure they feel safe, secure and happy is at the heart of everything we do.

A strong pastoral system where the children are known well by all staff ensures that the children’s emotional well-being is cared for.

Our dedicated team of staff play an essential role in ensuring that each child feels they have a voice and are listened to. Each pupil’s well-being is carefully monitored and alongside assessment of academic progress, we use a tracking system to monitor each child’s personal development. Children are encouraged to get involved in all aspects of school life, both in and out of the classroom, and by doing this they discover their own interests and passions, thus developing their individuality and a healthy self-esteem.

Based upon our core values set out in the West Lodge Way we work hard to develop children’s inter-personal skills and there is strong emphasis placed on good manners, kindness and consideration for others.
