School Description

Many pupils at Westbury have had a rocky start to their lives in education. At their previous schools, they have often missed significant parts of their education. However, the vast majority say that they now enjoy school. They say that they are happy here and feel safe. One pupil summed this up by saying, ‘I know that my teachers like me.’ Leaders and staff have high expectations for pupils’ achievement and behaviour. They share the vision that ‘No child is left behind’. Staff ensure that pupils follow the school rules. They deal with any instances of poor behaviour swiftly and fairly. Pupils say that bullying rarely occurs. When it does, staff are quick to resolve it. Pupils benefit from the specialised equipment and varied resources. There are opportunities to improve pupils’ mechanical, agricultural and cookery skills in the workshop, allotments and the food technology room. The 5Cs of promoting pupils’ confidence, curiosity and creativity while developing their character and encouraging challenge are central to the school’s aims. Many parents hold positive views of the school. One typical comment being, ‘I feel supported by the staff with any issues that I have. My two children have excelled since coming here.’
