Welcome to The Westborough School. We hope that you will enjoy exploring our website and discover for yourself why we believe that The Westborough School is such an exciting and vibrant place to learn.
At The Westborough School we provide a happy, caring and safe environment for our children. We work very hard to ensure that your child's experience of school is a positive one, which promotes a love of learning.
Children in our school come from a variety of cultural backgrounds; they have different religions and speak different languages. We celebrate and value this diversity. We encourage the children to be proud of their own culture, religion and language and to show respect for those of others.
The curriculum in the school is well planned and priority is given to developing high standards of literacy and numeracy, as well as the creative curriculum. Our work is supported by innovative use of resources and additional staffing to meet the individual needs of the children. We work hard to ensure each child reaches their full potential and for them to become life-long learners.
We aim to provide a high quality education at Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum through exciting Outdoor Learning, inspiring lessons and an engaging topic based approach.
We have very positive relationships with our parents and they are vital in helping us to achieve our aims. Home and school work together and the support and co-operation of our parents is greatly appreciated.
We are a welcoming school that is willing to listen. We respond to your questions, concerns or suggestions and would love you to visit our school. We look forward to meeting you soon.
