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!

Westwood School News

 Hello again from Westwood school! So much has taken place since I last wrote, including a fabulous Sports Day, children representing our school at the opening ceremony of the Marlborough games and a day of live broadcasting. Everyone was involved and showed such confidence, which was super. You can listen to our weekly episodes at westwoodwithiford.org/podcast.

 Academically, you may be aware of our successful Ofsted inspection that took place recently. We continue to be graded as Good. Furthermore, our Year 2 and Year 6 children have made us so proud with their commitment, hard work and attitude to learning that resulted in their deservedly strong outcome in their SATs.

 Sadly, we are saying goodbye at the end of term to our wonderful Year 6 children and also to two long serving members of staff. Ann Cook and Sue Purkiss have been with us for 18 and 16 years repectively and will be retiring in July. I am sure you will join me in wishing them both a relaxing retirement and an enormous thank you for their significant, caring and committed contribution to our school community over the years.

 Have a great summer everyone!

Thank you to everyone who supported us, helping to make our Summer Fair a huge success.  We raised £2,400!  There was a wonderful atmosphere, as spectators enjoyed the children's brilliant performances, ranging from dancing, gymnastics and martial arts.

The total raised was in the order of £2,400!

Another Successful Year

The FoWS Team are proud to announce that we have raised over £7,000 this academic year!  The money raised will go towards greatly needed equipment which will enhance the children’s school experience.
