Welcome to
Westcott Primary School

Welcome to Westcott Primary School, where we believe that education is not limited to the confines of the classroom. We highly value the collaborative effort between parents, carers, and the school in providing an effective education for our children.

As a proud member of the Hull Collaborative Academy Trust (HCAT), Westcott Primary School is part of a progressive community of schools that embraces innovation and forward-thinking approaches to education. Our school prides itself on our pupil-oriented ethos that focuses on nurturing self-belief, confidence, and independence. Our aim is to inspire every child to unlock their potential in a secure and joyful environment. We celebrate the accomplishments and achievements of all individuals within our school community. Inclusivity is at the heart of our values, where everyone is respected, valued, and cared for. We strive to cultivate motivated learners who demonstrate self-respect and respect for others.

Westcott Primary School is dedicated to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children, young people, and vulnerable adults. All staff and volunteers share this commitment, ensuring a safe and supportive learning environment. We are proud of our school and the remarkable children who fill our classrooms. We believe this pride will become evident from the moment you step inside and receive a warm welcome from staff and students alike.

We hope that you find our website both engaging and informative. Our pride in our school and the achievements of our children is evident as you explore the various pages and content.
