Information about this school

West London Free School Primary is a small primary school.

It opened in September 2013 with an intake of 60 Reception children who attend on a full-time basis. In September 2014 a further 60 Reception children started. The school will continue to grow to the full primary age range, catering for pupils aged between 4 and 11.

The school opened because of a shortage of primary places in the local community. The school is part of a multi-academy charitable trust which includes another primary school and a secondary school. The directors of the trust oversee the work of all three schools; several are founders of the West London Free School.

The secondary school has a separate governing body, with the Chair being a director of the trust. The two primary schools have the same governing body, but each school has an elected parent governor. The Chair of the two primary schools is also a director of the trust.

Chairs of the Governing Body report to the board of trustees termly. The school shares the same site as the other primary school. Pupils in Year 7 and 8 are also educated on the same site.

They will join the remaining secondary pupils when there is sufficient space at the new secondary school nearby. Pupils are from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds, with the largest group being White British. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is below average.

Almost all of these pupils are bilingual. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs is well below average. The proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which is additional government funding provided for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and looked after children, is well below average.

Currently, the leadership team consists of an executive headteacher, who is headteacher of both primary schools. Middle leaders have additional management responsibilities for the leadership of Reception and Year 1, mathematics, phonics and PE. To strengthen leadership capacity, the school has appointed a curriculum leader and a data manager on a part-time basis.

Further staffing appointments, including leadership posts, will be made as the number of pupils increases. The school seeks to provide an innovative curriculum which promotes fundamental British values. The school's values are wisdom, laughter, fellowship, success and perseverance (WLFSP).
