Our School

Welcome from Headteacher

I have pleasure in providing you with a copy of our school brochure, which I trust will prove informative and helpful.

It contains details about policies, organisation and daily routines that I hope you will find useful. However, it cannot replace that most valuable direct contact between home and school, so I would ask you, please, do not hesitate to get in touch if there is anything about which you would like to know more, anything which is not clear or if you have any further questions.

West Cliff Primary School is in an area of housing on the edge of the West Cliff shops in Whitby. We work closely with the other Whitby primary schools, and the two secondary schools. We also liaise regularly with the village schools in the Esk Valley. The school is part of a sports initiative based at Lady Lumley’s School in Pickering.  We are part of the Yorkshire Endeavour Academy Trust which is a group of 5 local schools that joined together to form a multi academy trust.

The school has a special relationship with the nearby Whitby Leisure Centre allowing the children to benefit from frequent swimming lessons. 

Our school is a Primary School catering for children from 2 – 11

Our children are currently organised into 8 classes. The classes are as follows:-

Nursery – Guppy Class Reception – Puffin Class Year 1 – Starfish Class Year 2 – Turtle Class Year 3 – Penguin Class Year 4 – Seahorse Class Year 5 – Dolphin Class Year 6 - Seal Class

We pride ourselves on small class sizes and personalised learning.

The first years in the primary school are the most important. Here the foundations of your child's education are laid, on which their future life is built. We believe we have an enormous responsibility to help every child succeed. We are enthusiastic, caring and seek every way we can to help your child achieve their full potential. We also believe that your contribution to your child’s education is vital. We view the relationship between home and school as a partnership, in which parents and teachers work together closely to ensure that every child receives continual support and encouragement.

Our 'open-door' policy means we value your contribution and welcome you into school at any time to see what is happening, to work alongside a teacher, work with a group of children or accompany us on an outing. We believe that, with your interest and support, the time your son or daughter spends here will be a happy and successful experience.
