I’m Rhona Bignell and I’m Headteacher at Westgate. I’d like to welcome you to our website: I hope that you enjoy browsing and that you can find any information you need. All the staff and children at Westgate are very proud of their school and I’m certainly very proud to be the headteacher.
• We have very special children who work hard and who genuinely care about each other and other people.
• There is a real sense of parents, staff and pupils working happily and successfully together.
• We are very much involved with the local community.
• We have high standards of achievement and behaviour.
• The staff are highly skilled and committed to ensuring the best for every single pupil.
Our ethos can be summed up in the words of our mission statement:
Striving For Excellence, Caring For Children
It means that every child matters at Westgate and every decision we take is based on making sure that what we do is in the best interests of the children. We had outstanding results in the National Tests (SATs) last year, with very pleasing numbers of children achieving at or above age-related expectations at the end of key stages one and two, but it is every bit as important to us that the children at Westgate feel happy and secure, that they respect each other and that they have the self-confidence and self-esteem to achieve their full potential. We don’t just want them to be highly numerate and literate, but we want them to have the opportunity to develop their talent in art, music and sport as well.
In this web-site, we have tried to give you a broad overview of the school and to give you the option of downloading further useful information if you need it. Have a look through it all then email us with your comments. We welcome visitors and want you to come and see the children, meet the staff and feel the happy atmosphere for yourself. We would also be pleased to learn more about the school from former pupils. Don’t hesitate to get in touch and thank you for taking the time to look at this website.
