Dear Parents/Carers,


Our school has, for the second year running, won Primary School of the Year. This is the first time any school has won twice in succession, so this is a brilliant achievement! I would like to thank Mr Farrell and Mr Woodward for all their planning, organisation and excellent opportunities for our pupils to take part in sporting activities. Also, Mrs Adams, who leads the Sports’ Council element of the PE Team – all three staff members attended the Awards Evening last night, where representatives from over thirty schools in the Hinckley, Bosworth, Earl Shilton, Barwell, Desford, Stoke Golding, Groby, Leicester Forest East and Ratby areas heard why Westfield Junior School was voted Primary School of the Year. We are just brilliant – that’s why!!


Our Year Three pupils took part in a showcase engagement activity for their topic this half term which is music based and is called ‘Playlist’. The children were entertained by Mrs Sweet (Harry and Kira’s mum) who has a fabulous voice and sang a variety of songs including my very favourite ever, ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ by Queen (which she did brilliantly) and thank you so much to Mrs Sweet for doing this for us!

This was also an opportunity for our Year Three pupils to show what they could do: Erin Cook (3F) tap danced; Aayan Dhungel (3S) played his guitar; Aston Boyes (3F) and Macey Moore (3S) played the recorder; Mia Clark (3A) read poetry – what a talented bunch – we have already been talent spotting for the Westfield’s Got Talent Show in March!


On Tuesday after school we are holding a short meeting for the parents/carers of pupils in Year Six who are going to PGL in June. Mr Lambert has been to check out the facilities and risk assess other activities off-site. If you would like to know more about this, please come to the hall after school.


This is a reminder about the flu vaccine on Monday 26th November. Your child will be having the vaccine only if you have completed the form and sent it back.

Best wishes, Margaret Greig

PS. It’s been really cold this week and we are still having children coming to school without a coat – could you please make sure they wear one in the morning. Then it’s their decision to leave it in the cloakroom at break and lunch times!!
