Westfield Primary Community School

Where children come first

About Us

Headteacher's welcome 

A very warm welcome to Westfield Primary Community School's website. 

I have been the Headteacher at Westfield since January 2009, and it is my privilege to lead such a caring school where children really do come first.  We are an over-subscribed, three-form entry school situated on a lovely site with substantial grounds.

We have extremely high expectations of our children's academic performance, and high aspirations for their future career success.  Quality of teaching is consistently good or better in all year groups.  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 in 2016 put us top of the York primary league table; ranked first in the whole of the City of York. 

We were very proud to win the York Community Pride "School of the Year Award" in 2016.

For daily updates, please follow our many school twitter accounts; you'll find main school @WfieldPrimary

If you are a prospective parent, and you are successful in gaining a place here for your child, we will welcome your child into our school family in Reception, and send them off on a high following the annual Year 6 summer show :)

Good luck with your application.

Kind regards,

Tracey Ralph
