The children, staff and Governors of West Denton Primary School have discussed the Attitudes and Learner Profile we want to promote in both children and adults throughout our school community. We will look for frequent opportunities to celebrate and reward those who strive to be the best they can be. I would very much like to hear the thoughts of parents and carers on our Core Values.
