Headteacher Welcome to West Kirby Primary School
On behalf of the children, staff and Governors, a warm welcome to you and your family to our school - West Kirby Primary School, Wirral.
At West Kirby Primary School our aim is to create a happy, caring community where all members are included, secure and confident, have an equal opportunity to fulfil their potential and to develop the skills necessary to make a valuable contribution to society, both now and in the future.
I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of our school. I hope that our website will give you a flavour of our school community. At WKPS we are proud of the opportunities that our children have. We provide a balanced and creative curriculum with a range of learning opportunities that offer a wide breadth of learning, ensuring all children at our school are successful and have the opportunity to become confident and independent learners. We strive to give children the knowledge and skills they need to be ready for the next stage of their education journey and to be the best they can be in all areas of the curriculum. Reading is at the heart of our curriculum and we know it is the key to success. We offer a reading rich environment, a well-stocked library and dedicated reading areas in each classroom.
Everything that we do here at WKPS is underpinned by our core values -healthy lifestyles, global citizenship, eco-friendliness and digital awareness. Our school is friendly, inclusive, has a strong emphasis on wellbeing and always strives for achieving high academic standards. We value the partnership between home and school and encourage all parents/carers to take an active part in the education of the children and life of the school.
Selecting a school for your child is a very important decision and I realise how important it is to feel trust in the people that care for your child each day. We welcome you to come and have a look around our school, meet us and see us in action. To arrange a visit, call our School Office (0151 625 5561)

Yesterday, EYFS had a fantastic morning at the beach. The rain held off long enough for them to create physical maps in the sand and make observational drawings of the landscape. They also made lots of sandcastles and finished off with a lolly ice!

Class 1 had a great day being artists! Doesn't their work look superb? The children learnt about Vincent Van Gogh's painting 'Fishing Boats on the Beach at Saintes-de-la-Mer' and then created their own version by adding different textures and painting it. Great work Class 1⛵️🛶😊
