Bob Barrett - Chairman of Governors

I am a Governor appointed by the Link Collaborative Trust, the Chair of the Staffing Committee and the Vice Chair of the Premises Committee.  My profession is a Facilities, Health & Safety and Events Manager and I work on various projects in Swindon.  I am extremely privileged to be a Governor of Westlea Primary School

Sarah Sumner - Headteacher

I joined Westlea in 2004. Since I started, I have taught in every year group, managed the SRP and was the Deputy Headteacher for 7 years. My passion for teaching is underpinned by inclusion for every pupil and SEND. I teach in Y6 on a Wednesday afternoon, but am always keen to pop in and teach lessons across the school.

Jayne Dickinson

I started at Westlea in 2006 as a TA and MDSA and gained my HLTA status in 2011. I also taught KS1&2 Swimming and PE. In 2013 just before we converted to Academy status I moved into the office to support the Bursar, responsible for staffing, pupils and data. In 2016 I became the Office Manager and then in May 2019, due to the Bursar leaving, I took on the finance role and I am really enjoying my new challenge. As Mrs Sumner’s TA back in 2010-2013 it is lovely to be back working with her again in our new roles! I am also Staff Governor.
