going to school in the Westwood area. We have already interviewed a number of
community members and learnt so much from them about Westwood in the past. We
can visit you or you are most welcome to come into school for a very informal
chat with some of our delightful children. Please get in touch with the school

A big hello again from us all at Westwood with Iford Primary School. I do hope you all had a wonderful summer. We are very much back in to the excitement of a new term, having welcomed our new reception entrants, who have settled so well.
The year has already got off to a fantastic start with everyone enjoying their exciting new topics and working hard. I am delighted to let you know that we are continuing our hugely successful Oral History project, which was so much fun last year. Once again we will focus on understanding and sharing the rich heritage of the village and local community and we will be looking for members of the local and wider community to share their life memories and experiences of living, schooling and working in Westwood over time, through interviews and live broadcasts with our pupils.
If you are interested in taking part in this project, either with a story to tell or as a volunteer transcriber, please contact the school.
We are also looking for members of our community to join our dynamic and supportive governing body this year. Please contact the school office if you are interested. Article published: 01 Oct 2018
