The unique WDPS Life Skills Challenge program has been created because all children need a key skills-set in order to develop their potential and to make their life dreams become a reality.
All visitors help us to become enquirers and to learn and discover new things about the world.
Visiting 10 Downing Street helps us appreciate that the WDPS Core Values are reflected in fundamental ‘British Values.’
WDPS Cycle offsite multi-day challenges help us all to develop resilience and to become effective team players.
We develop higher-level thinking skills online by learning to analyse, synthesise and evaluate.
Our teachers appreciate that we are all unique individuals with different learning styles.
Learning is fun as our Teachers plan exciting learning experiences through the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).
The all–weather WDPS Mountain Bike and Running Trail helps us develop fitness, stamina and essential bike-handling skills.
We learn from different world cultures which helps shape us into well-balanced and open-minded global citizens.
In the WDPS Bushcraft Area we develop our Multiple Intelligences and self-confidence whilst learning to manage risks.

Mrs Barr


I have taught at West Denton Primary School since 2001. I taught across all Key Stage 1 then joined Key Stage 2 in 2008.

I have run many different extra-curricular clubs over the years including science and games club and presently work with Mrs Hughes on the school council.

My favourite subjects to teach in school are numeracy, science and I look forward to art on a Friday afternoon!

Outside of school I enjoy watchingfilms, livemusic and nights out at the theatre. I also love to meet up with friends for shopping trips during the holidays. I enjoy going to the gym, especially to spinning classes which I've been doing for 6 years.
