Westfield Primary Community School

Where children come first

About Us

Headteacher's welcome 

Mr Nigel Walter is the Interim Headteacher at Westfield Primary for the autumn term 2018. 

We are very proud to be a maintained community school, and governors have no plans to convert to academy status.

We were most recently judged "good" by Ofsted in January 2018 following an earlier "good" rating in January 2013.  We are an inclusive school with higher than average percentages of children on the Special Needs register, and higher than average numbers of children qualifying for Free School Meals. 

Although some of our children with Special Educational Needs will not meet the government's "expected standard" in statutory tests,  we aim to ensure that they will all make good or outstanding progress from their individual starting points.  

Our teacher recruitment and retention rates are high and teaching vacancies arise rarely; either following promotion of our outstanding staff or to cover maternity absences. 

We won the York Community Pride "School of the Year Award" in 2016.
