Welcome to Westwood Community Primary School

A warm welcome from the Head Teacher...

Mrs. Sarah Jane Jones

Excellent and Good throughout – as rated by Estyn!

Westwood is a happy, thriving community based school located in the heart of the town of Buckley, Flintshire. We currently have 209 learners on board, from Nursery to Year 6, with additional provision for Early Entitlement. We are extremely proud of our work as a community school! As a result of the hard work, dedication and commitment from our team of pupils, staff, parents and governors, we are now rated as Excellent and Good throughout all areas of school by Estyn who visited in May 2018 - an amazing achievement! Our Best Practice report was also released in November 2018 by Estyn. This really demonstrates how amazing Westwood really is! Our vast improvements were also formally acknowledged by the Minister of Education for Wales.  You can view both reports in our inspection page on the website.

This website only offers you a glimpse of what we have to offer.  The best way to experience our qualities is to arrange a school visit, via the school office.  Visitors always notice how friendly and caring our learning environment is and have also passed comment on how well the staff know every child by name, need and nature.  We understand that all children deserve to be happy, recognised and praised and also that individuals must be given every opportunity to achieve their personal goals.

You will be using our website for many reasons:

  • If you are a visitor, thank you for noticing us and checking us out.  I hope we get to meet you one day.
  • If you are a pupil, I hope you will continue in your quest to be a happy and successful member of our school.
  • If you are a parent or carer, I hope you will continue to support our school to ensure that our excellent partnership enhances your child's experiences.
  • If you are a member of staff, thank you for your commitment and contribution towards our successes to date. Keep weaving the magic!
  • If you are a governor, keep on supporting the successful future of our school.

Westwood Community Primary School – the school at the heart of the community, with the community at its' heart.

We look forward to welcoming you to our Westwood family.
