Our sculpture design was inspired by the family values we all share at Western Community Primary School. We feel our school is a very special place; the values we share make our community unique. Our children, families, staff and governors helped to choose our Western family values and these inspire a monthly focus for every one of us.

Every pupil created a design to illustrate a Western value that is close to their heart. These include courage, positivity, kindness and individuality to name just a few. We hope that when you look at our beautiful Snowdog our values shine through.
