Westwood with Iford School News
Hello again from Westwood school and it's hard to believe that we're at the end of another academic year already. So much has taken place since I last wrote, including a fabulous Sports Day, two nights of first class entertainment from our older children performing Shakespeare Rocks and our Summer Fair. Thank you all so very much for supporting our school once again. We are lucky to live and work within such a wonderful community.
Academically, our Year 2 and Year 6 children have again made us proud with their commitment, hard work and attitude to learning that resulted in their deservedly strong outcomes in their SATs and everyone throughout the school has had so many diverse and exciting learning opportunities this year, it has been a joy to see.
Sadly, we are saying goodbye at the end of term to our wonderful Year 6 children and we wish them all every success in their new schools.
Finally, if you would like to be a governor at our successful school, please contact us via the school website www.westwoodwithiford.org. We would very much welcome additional members to our governing body. Have a great summer everyone! Ian Rockey Head teacherArticle published: 02 Aug 2017

Residents will remember that back in August last year
B&NES resurfaced this path through the particularly muddy section where
Avoncliff Wood comes down to the river. This work has been greatly appreciated
by the many people who walk along this attractive stretch (at least as far as
the Wiltshire border, where deep mud is again a difficulty in wet weather).
Now, though, there is a further problem with the river bank
alongside the newly resurfaced section, which is being eroded by dogs
scrambling in and out of the water. The B&NES Public Right of Way Team -
which is doing great work for us - is on the case and has applied to the
Environment Agency to install gabion baskets to stabilise the bank.
Until approval comes through, the vulnerable sections have
been taped off and dog owners are asked please to stop your dog going in to the
water at these points. If someone else walks your dog, we would be grateful if
you would pass this message on.Article published: 27 Jan 2017

Westwood Nursery School
Since Easter we have welcomed 5 new families to the nursery who have moved into the village.
This term we have tied in our planning to link into the Scarecrow Hunt theme- Stories. The children have done a number treasure hunt in the park with chocolate in the treasure box when number 9 was found- Zigby’s Treasure Hunt. Little Red Riding Hood week was Safety week and there will be lots of assault courses for ‘Going on the Bear Hunt’ week. The better weather has seen us making the most of our outside space which we are hoping to further improve with money raised from the Easter egg hunt, jumble sale and scarecrow trail.
We would like to take this opportunity to THANK all the villagers who donated items to the jumble sale we raised an incredible £631.90 Also THANK YOU for the Sainsbury’s vouchers.
We will bid farewell to 13 children this summer - 7 children will be going to Westwood with Iford School and the others attending schools in Bradford-on-Avon, Wingfield and Trowbridge Article published: 30 May 2016
