Westwood School News

 Another busy and exciting few weeks have passed at Westwood with Iford School and our run up to Christmas is about to begin. Please join us for our Christmas Fair on Saturday 3rd December at school. There will be plenty of festive cheer to get you in the Christmas mood.

If you haven’t yet tuned in, Westwood Radio - radio.westwoodwithiford.org has successfully launched and broadcasts live every Friday in term time at 2.30pm. With weekly community news and interviews, there is something for everyone.

 Governor News

This issue we are also asking whether any members of our fantastic community are interested in joining our school Governing Body. As a successful, innovative school, we are looking for additional governors to expand our successful Governing Body, in order to fully support and oversee the school as it continues to move forward with clear vision and direction.

 We meet once a term and would very much welcome new members. If you are interested, we would be delighted to give you more information and you can contact our Chair, Sean Wyartt by email at seanwyartt@westwoodwithiford.org or the school office at admin@westwoodwithiford.org.

 Have a great Christmas!

Westwood School News

 On behalf of the staff, governors, children and parents, a big welcome back from all of us here at Westwood School!

 We are already into the swing of our teaching and learning, having welcomed our new Reception children, who are all enjoying themselves. This week they join us full time and we have been so impressed with how quickly they have settled.

 If you know of anyone who has children starting next September, we will be holding our Open Morning on Tuesday 27th September from 9am - 12pm. This is an open invitation for prospective parents to come along and see the school in action.

 As a school we are proud to be innovative in our teaching and learning. I am delighted to announce that we have secured funding to develop Westwood Radio, an online radio station run by the children for our community. Watch this space for how you can get involved!

 We have also recently learnt that we have been shortlisted for a Tesco Bags of Help Grant to develop our school field for healthy and exciting play. Please vote for our project in your local Tesco store from 26th September to secure our funding!
