At West Pelton Primary School we aim:

- to foster positive attitudes, respect and sound moral judgement
- to fully develop each child’s academic potential and ensure good basic skills

These are the aims of how we want to work alongside our children and underpin all of the learning that takes place in our school.

At West Pelton Primary School, we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers.
