Our governors are currently starting the recruiting process to appoint a new Headteacher at Westfield.
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 Year 6 pupil progress scores remain consistently "above" or "well above" national average and we have closed the gap in outcomes for disadvantaged learners.
In 2018 Ofsted said "Your professional commitment to the community and its children has made a positive contribution to the life chances of many".
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.
