Welcome to Our School

Welcome to West Melton Primary School

Striving for Success with Pride and Happiness

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all the children, their parents and carers, families, friends and members of the local community who are central to the life of West Melton Primary School. Our whole school community values the contribution every child brings to our school which makes our school a happy and friendly place to learn and work. Our mission, to ‘Strive for Success, with Pride and Happiness’, underpins all we do at West Melton.

Learning is our core purpose and we provide a safe and caring school environment where people are helpful, considerate and respectful of each other. Relationships and attitudes are positive and an ethos exists in which learning together becomes an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for all. I feel privileged to be the Headteacher at a continuously changing and improving school.

Our school has a positive reputation for embracing and celebrating every kind of achievement. This is reflected in our commitment to inclusion and unity.

At West Melton Primary School we welcome parents as partners so that, together, we can promote high standards of learning, behaviour and attitudes to enable every child to be the best that they can be.

Thank you for your choosing our school and I hope that our website provides you with a flavour of what our school has to offer you and your child. If you have not already done so I encourage you to come and visit us to find out more. Appointments can be made through the school office.

We look forward to a happy and successful relationship with you over the coming year.

With kind regards,
Mr A Krabbendam
Interim Headteacher

About our school

West Melton Primary School, opened in 1973, is situated in a residential part of Rotherham close to Wath-Upon-Dearne.

Our children are accommodated in a single storey building with five classrooms, a large hall, dining area and a multi-purpose meeting room. We also have our own kitchens, where school meals are cooked, onsite Nursery provision (West Melton Early Years) and grounds that surround the building on three sides.


We encourage prospective parents to visit our school. If you would like to arrange a visit to look around and see the school at work, please contact Miss Thompson in the school office to make an appointment.

If you require any further information about our school then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
