Head's Welcome

On the 1st January 2020, I became the new Headteacher at Westlea Primary School following a 3 month period as the Acting Headteacher. In addition to leading the school through the pandemic and winning the National SEND Award for Inclusion, so much has happened since I became the Headteacher. In summary, I would like to share my vision for the school.

 

Westlea Primary School is a vibrant school, with just over 280 children on roll. The school comprises of 11 classes and a Special Resourced Provision (SRP) for children who are physically disabled. All of the SRP children, along with others with complex learning and emotional needs are all fully integrated into the mainstream school. At Westlea, I strive to ensure that all of the children will be at the heart of every decision we make, so they are happy, safe and confident. All of the educational opportunities and experiences are relevant to the children's needs both now and in the future.

Ethos & Values at Westlea

Personal Development, is both a subject and part of the school's commitment to providing equality and inclusive practice for all pupils. Our aim is to teach children how to navigate through life safely, happily and healthily. Children are growing up in a world that is constantly changing and it is the duty of all the staff at school in partnership with the parents to teach the children transferable life skills. We teach children about the world around them, relationships, emotions, reproduction and health, as well as transferable skills to help with life. We consistently promote the British values and our school values.

 

Opportunities include:

School Council and Prefects

Concerts and choir

Sporting achievements and representing the school

Attending the 'Field of Remembrance' service at Lydiard Park

Theme days

Assemblies and visitors

Wellbeing 

Anti-bullying

Celebrating different languages, cultures and religions

 

The school is currently developing a Citizenship Award across the school, which will be launched in January 2022.
