The Westborough School



 A message to parents from Miss Brook. 

Wishing you all a very Happy Holiday. It's not been the ending to the year we expected but we got there.

Thank you to everyone for the support you have given to your children and the Westborough staff.

All the staff are in next week getting ready for the children's return in September. On Wednesday we will break for some rest and relaxation. I would like to give a big shout out to all of the Westborough staff because without them my job would be impossible.

Whatever you are doing this Summer, make the most of it and remember 2020 will always be in the History books. Make History!

Stay safe and look after yourselves. Xx

 

 

Letter from Miss Brook - plans for September.

Thanks go to Mr Funa for this fun Virtual Sports Day!

Something to do in the holiday!

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.

Tonya Brook,

Headteacher

 Westborough supports KOFUP!  Find out more HERE.

Kofup is 19 years old now. From the start Westborough has been the most generous of supporters especially in the early days when people felt abandoned and forgotten by the world. Knowing that there were people who cared  added the gift of Hope to their courage and resilience in direst of  circumstances.  For more photos and news click HERE.

Despite the challenges people have hope, thanks to small donations from children combined with very generous donations from individuals and from school based fund raising.You will never really know what you have done.The children on the receiving end of your kindness do because they are alive to tell their stories.They are always amazed that you care about them without knowing them. So are we! 

Thank you. 

Brendan Bennett and the Trustees of Kofup
