Welcome from the Headteacher
Our school is situated in the town of Hinckley, Leicestershire. We are a community junior school with 335 pupils and 60 staff. We have our own gymnasium, a fantastic studio space, a large hall with stage, lighting and speaker system, three playgrounds and a spacious field with a trim trail.
Westfield is a Junior School with strong community links. We provide a high standard of education for pupils in the 7 – 11 age range.
As we share our campus with Westfield Infant School and Westfield Community Centre, we liaise closely. Together we provide care and education for children from the age of 6 weeks to adults in retirement and beyond, through our nursery, playgroup, schools, After School and Pre-school care, school holiday play-schemes and community activity clubs.
We also have a special unit for children with moderate learning difficulties and we liaise with all educational and recreational support groups in the area.
As one of the 12 schools in the Hinckley Learning Partnership we take an active part in all the Sporting events organised in the area including; football, netball, athletics, and swimming competitions.
We value the individual child and encourage them to take part in our wide curriculum which we share with Westfield Infant School, which is supplemented by many additional after school activities. Many of our staff provide an after school activity at some point during the school year. Over 150 pupils a week attend after school sport clubs. Our extensive site enables community groups to provide additional activities at a small charge and parents are informed of these through the school weekly newsletter.
The aim of Westfield Junior School is to provide the best education possible for all of our children. We are an ECO school and have been awarded the green flag at the highest level a total of five times for our environmental initiatives. We also have a Sports Mark Award for the excellence of our sport provision and the Art Mark for our creative curriculum as well as The International Schools Award. This year we are aiming for the Science Mark and Anti-Bullying Mark.
We believe our school is warm and welcoming where children enjoy a happy, caring, exciting experience in a safe and secure environment.
We value all people in our school and have received the prestigious Investor in People Award every year whilst it was awarded. However the only way to find out if we live up to these accolades is to pay us a visit.
Jane Holt, our Office Manager is always happy to organise a conducted tour of the school if you telephone to arrange a suitable time. The school phone number is 01455 637437.
