West Winds Primary School and Nursery Unit


Our aim is to provide a rich and well balanced curriculum, which develops the whole child. Staff ensure that each year group follow a programme which has continuity and progression in line with the NI Curriculum.

Our dedicated teachers employ a range of different teaching approaches (whole class, group and individual), depending on the needs of the children and the subject being covered. Activities are carefully matched to pupils’ individual needs and abilities, to ensure effective learning. There is an emphasis on practical activities which promote life skills.

The progress being made by your child will be carefully monitored by continuous observation and assessment throughout the year. Standardised tests are used from P3-P7 to assess the progress of each child and each class. Teacher / Parent consultations take place in both the Autumn and Spring term and a detailed written report is issued in June. Parents are welcome to talk to teachers before or after school if there is new information that needs shared. West Winds PS takes pride in the excellent relationships fostered between home and school.
