School Description

Leaders and teachers provide pupils with a very orderly and safe environment in which to learn. They have high expectations of pupils. For example, teachers expect pupils to try hard in class. They use a range of approaches to assist pupils in attending to their studies. Pupils start the day on a positive note because senior leaders meet and greet them. At the end of the day, staff and leaders check on each pupil’s well-being. Staff teach pupils how to act and speak kindly. This has led to a reduction in incidents of bullying. Parents and carers speak very highly of the care and support provided by the school. One parent praised this aspect saying, ‘Westlands Academy is a fantastic school. My son has made massive improvement socially and emotionally. The staff are very supportive to me and my family.’ If pupils struggle to behave when in class, staff are on hand to assist them in managing their behaviour. Staff take time to explain to pupils why their classwork is important. Pupils show interest in what they are learning by asking teachers questions about the curriculum subject. In some classes, pupils do not read enough written material that introduces them to important subject-specific ideas.
