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, in addition we have a Nursery class for children aged 3-4yrs. 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.
