This fantastic news follows a two-day Ofsted inspection, which took place 24th – 25th January this year and we are delighted that Ofsted has recognised all the excellent work going on at Westfield School and Nursery.

Whilst Quality of Education, Behaviours and Attitudes, Leadership and Management and Early Years Provision were all recognised to be good, Personal Development was rated as outstanding, and we could not be prouder of our pupils and staff. This is a huge success for the School and we are very proud of the report which highlights many key strengths.

The inspectors recognised that “the School is inclusive and welcoming.”

The School prioritises “pupils’ character development through an exceptional programme of experiences.” The children “enjoy activities to enhance the curriculum, such as the ‘Fantastic Futures’ programme and the link with the local university to promote physical activity.”

“From early years to Year 6, the experiences pupils receive deepen their knowledge of all walks of life in modern Britain.”

“In lessons, and around the School, pupils behave positively. Relationships between pupils and staff are respectful.”

“The School values of creativity, respect, collaboration, ambition and resilience support everything the School does.”

The inspectors also recognised that effective support is in place for those pupils with specific behavioural and emotional needs. Leaders work closely with families and external agencies the children benefit from the School’s inclusive ethos.

Headteacher Simon Mills, said: “Everyone at Westfield is incredibly proud of our recent Ofsted report. In particular, we are pleased that Inspectors were able to see for themselves the caring and inclusive environment we have created here and that our children feel very happy and safe in School.

“The report is a credit to children and staff across the School and to the strong relationships that have been built with pupils, parents, and the wider community. We are extremely proud of everything that we have been able to achieve at Westfield since the last Ofsted and as always, we look forward to the School continuing to help all of our pupils fulfil their potential in the future.”
